When you picture a romantic getaway I bet you picture somewhere with green palm trees, white sandy beaches and lots of quiet places for you and your partner to hide away in. And normally you probably don’t picture that happening in the United States. I don’t blame you, if I had a secret stash of cash I’d want to fly out of the States for a short getaway myself. But why not find a cozy, romantic place in the States to save some money but still get that experience?
I believe romance is in the eye of the beholder (much like beauty), everyone has their own ideas of romance outside of the stereotypical. I picked four different place I found to be romantic to visit in the land of the free.
#1 – Monterey, California
Any place that has a picture like that has me visiting. Crystal blue waters and picturesque views – yup I’m hooked. And how about you can pick from 7 Secret Beaches for all that white sand you’ve been looking for? Don’t forget all the spas, wine tasting rooms and romantic walks you can get.
Expedia has flight +hotel + car packages for the Monterey area that cost just under $2,000 for 2 people for FOUR days (coming from the Pittsburgh area). Pretty nice steal!
#2 – Kauai, Hawaii
Hawaii is the States own personal getaway for sure but I’ve only really heard of the major islands like Honolulu … never about Kauai. But apparently it’s the perfect island to getaway from it all with your romantic partner. Take your pick from horseback riding, surf lessons or even a romantic helocopter tour.
Expedia has flight + hotel + car packages for Kauai Island that cost about $2,500 for 2 people for FOUR days (coming from the Pittsburgh area). This would be perfect for those vacation hours you’ve been saving.
#3 – San Francisco, California
I’ve been in love with San Francisco since “Full House” was filmed there … then there was “Charmed” and let’s not forget “The Princess Diaries.” San Fran has had it’s fair share of popularity in films and television. With it’s picturesque views of the bay area and the rolling hills with iconic street cars (that STILL work) what wouldn’t you like?
Expeida has flight + hotel + car packages for San Francisco that cost right around $1,500 for 2 people for FOUR days (coming from the Pittsburgh area). Get some history in with your romantic trip here!
#4 – Savannah, Georgia
We’ve all heard of “Southern beauty,” well now I know why … with beautiful fields, plantations and bed & breakfasts I could lose myself in the romance. Calculate in all the romantic stories and movies that have come from the South, would you like to star in your own Southern romance novel? There is so much to do in Savannah as well: ghost tours, trolley tours, and cruises!
Expedia has flight + hotel + car packages for Savannah that cost $1,300 or less for 2 people for FOUR days (coming form the Pittsburgh area). Talk about a Southern revival!
