Whoever said winter can’t be a good time for vacation definitely needs to step up his travel game. As a matter of fact, winter makes the perfect time to take your loved one up on the mountains and out the open plains! Turn up the heat on these cold days and get on a romantic holiday with your loved one. Here’s where you should go.
This desert oasis looks especially enthralling during winter seasons. Imagine standing before the glorious sight of dusted white rusty-red mountaintops while holding your loved one. Spectacular hike trails, mild days and crowds significantly thinned out – this is a place solitude-seeking couples ought to explore!
Texas Hill Country, Texas
Although Texas Hill Country is just some distance away from Austin, it still does feel and look as though it’s worlds away. Expect to see a lot of stunning limestone canyons, cypress-fringed rivers and country roads. Here, you and your loved one can enjoy stops at wineries until you arrive at Fredericksburg. Bask in festive shops, see the 26-ft Christmas Pyramid and experience the horse carriage rides! There’s just so much to do, really.
With small towns, open roads and the classic red barns, Berkshires screams nothing but dream-like winter romance. Couples may find alone time snowshoeing through the mountain trails and further exploring the Norman Rockwell-ish Stockbridge. But if the outdoors aren’t your thing, then you can also enjoy an intimate dinner at lodges such as The Old Inn found on the Green.
New York City
New York has always had the appeal of a sexy backdrop for romantic holiday flicks. Take your loved one here and ice skate through the Central Park. You can also brave the massive crowds on Fifth Avenue and stroll past the infinite window displays. If you’re still up for some adventure after that, walk over the Brooklyn Bridge and explore the cobblestoned streets in the Dumbo neighborhood.
