Looking for that perfect vacation to renew and strengthen the bond of your relationship? You’re at the right place because we’ve rounded up five romantic towns suited for new and old couples. Get a lot of quality time to reconnect, reflect, and get to know each other all over again. Our recommended romantic towns may be at a beautiful ocean resort or a mountaintop sanctuary. Your choice just depends on your interest and how you can truly enjoy each other’s company.
Romantic Town 1: Mendocino, California
Imagine waking up to the sound of crashing waves and the beauty of the deep blue Pacific Ocean. Stay at Sea Rock Inn, a Mendocino seaside cottage resort, and you’ll have just that! Expect a weekend of picnics at state parks overlooking the ocean or romantic dinners at seafood restaurants. Stroll around the quaint historic village filled with antique shops and art galleries—as it is, after all, an art epicenter.
Romantic Town 2: Logan, Ohio
A pride of the Midwest, the Hocking Hills is a spectacular getaway for couples looking for adventure and romance at the same time. Rent a log cabin surrounded by the woods at the Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls and take a break from the outside world. Enjoy a couples’ massage located at a secluded place at the Inn for that deep relaxation both of you deserve. Go trekking at the 2,356-acre Hocking Hills State Park, which offers year-round outdoor activities such as hiking, ziplining, boating, cross-country skiing, and more.
Romantic Town 3: Chatham, Massachusetts
Forget about your fear of sharks because Cape Cod is, and has always been, a magnet for honeymooners and romantic outings. With its vast landscape of pine trees, sand dunes, and the beautiful ocean, who would disagree? Stay at the Chatham Gables Inn, located just minutes from the National Seashore. Visit the Lighthouse Beach in Chatham at night (best in the summer). Lie in the sand together and take in the sound of the surf, the scent of beach roses, and the star-studded sky. It’s an intimate setting for you, your favorite person, and the sweeping light from the lighthouse.
Romantic Town 4: Saluda, North Carolina
Saluda is a small town half an hour away from Asheville, and sits high in the NC mountains. It’s a resort town but you won’t find it to be as busy as others of its kind. Visit the 5.2-acre downtown and you’ll be amazed by the old railroad-era buildings designated as a National Historic District. Go cruising on the main street, Highway 176, known as a Scenic Highway. You’ll also be taken back in time as your eyes fill with elegant Victorian houses lining up the street. One example is the now bed and breakfast Orchard Inn built in 1926 and was originally called the Mountain Home.
Romantic Town 5: Brenham, Texas
Rekindle your romance in Brenham, also a popular place to elope in Texas. Understandably so because of the many interesting places that couples can enjoy here. Watch a heartwarming play at Unity Theatre in Brenham’s historic downtown district. Stay at a guest ranch at Murski Homestead and take cooking classes together. At night, spend quality time together in the outdoor hot tub and enjoy the fireworks of stars above you.
