So you’ve just started dating someone amazing. It’s early days, but you really like them and you’re even thinking about taking a trip together.
But where should you go? We recommend America – it is a beautiful country, and there are so many different places that offer different experiences. Here are some of the best romantic getaway locations in the States to help you decide.
1. New Orleans
Soulful New Orleans is the perfect place for a music-loving couple, especially if you love Jazz and Blues! It is also a great choice for foodies, with its fantastic cuisine reflecting the city’s influence of French, African and American culture.
There are lots of romantic things for couples to do here; you can take a ride on a horse and carriage, or you can visit one of the cities hidden courtyard cafes. If you can, visit during February – and make sure to get down to the amazing Mardi Gras celebrations!
If you’re looking for a relaxing time in a paradise location then Honolulu, Hawaii is a great choice. Lay down in the sand on idyllic Waikiki Beach to watch the surfers and canoes – or if you’re feeling brave, have a go on the water yourselves! For an authentic Hawaiian experience, visit ‘House Without A Key’ to watch live Hawaiian dancing, while listening to music under the stars and sipping on a Mai Tai cocktail. Perfect!
3. Las Vegas
If a wild weekend is more your thing than a relaxing break, then notorious Las Vegas is surely the place for you. It’s basically a playground for adults with its rooftop rollercoasters, singing gondoliers and around-the-clock entertainment.

If you’re a risk-taking couple, why not have a go in the casinos and if you’re feeling really in love, you could always visit one of the city’s infamous wedding chapels…
Seattle is a wonderful place to go if you fancy taking your partner on a romantic boat ride. Visit the Center for Wooden Boats and rent a stunning wooden sailboat, rowboat or canoe to slowly take in the city’s views from the water before relaxing with cocktails at the dock.
