5 Romantic U.S. Getaways For Winter Lovers

Posted on: 26 April 2019

Winter can be a wonderfully romantic time of year in the right environment. No matter whether you're from a hot state or a cold one, the right winter retreat with your loved one can make those cold and darker days seem soft and magical. 

To help you find the perfect romantic winter destination, here are a few great ideas throughout the United States.

Northern Lights in Alaska. What could be more romantic than watching the skies light up with the green and yellow hues of the Northern Lights? Alaskans are used to this phenomenon, but for the rest of the country, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Some of the best Northern Lights viewing is in Fairbanks, Denali National Park, and easy-to-reach Anchorage. Plan an Alaska winter tour for a wonderful experience.

Yellowstone Under Snow. Yellowstone National Park doesn't close down for the winter, but the crowds do go away. What's left is the small "winter lodge" set up for a handful of lucky visitors. You and your partner can take the snow machines on guided tours to see Yellowstone's famous wildlife enjoying the warmth of the natural hot springs and geysers. You can then spend the evening sipping toddies in front of the fire.

Sedona's Winter Desert. Few people would think about Arizona as a snowy winter destination, but there are several places within the state where snow falls right onto the high desert landscape. Sedona is famous for its stunning red rock landscape, which can be covered by a thin layer of snow during the winter. The stark contrast and hiking opportunities are perfect for outdoor-loving lovers. 

Hot Springs in the Rockies. Colorado's Rocky Mountains are a great place to find hot springs you can enjoy both privately and publicly. Some of the best are found in Glenwood Hot Springs. Situated close to the ritzy glamor of Aspen and Vail, you'll find quiet romance in the steamy springs as well as amazing shopping and nightlife in the resort towns. It's the best of both worlds.

Old-School Charm in the Berkshires. The Berkshire area is a throwback to the olden days of charming villages, small inns, and snowy backwoods. This is an ultimate spot to take your partner for an old-fashioned country Christmas. Throughout the winter, you'll also find tiny shops to love, trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, and cozy fireplaces to snuggle in front of. 

No matter what type of romance is your personal favorite, you'll find it through America's winter destinations. Start planning today for the trip of a lifetime with the one you love.
