Whether you’ve been together for 5 weeks or 50 years, every couple deserves a chance to spend some quality time together.
And no, we don’t mean an evening of Netflix and takeout food. We’re talking about a vacation to somewhere new, somewhere exotic, somewhere that makes your heart swell and your senses come alive.
Sound good? We thought it would. And we know just the place. Here are our favorite romantic destinations around the world.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires is like a slice of Europe transported halfway across the world. In fact, the city’s even earned a nickname as “the Paris of South America”.
But underneath all that European architecture and taste for fine dining lurks the trademark Latin fire and passion, making it an incredibly romantic place to vacation.
And if dancing the night away with the object of your desire sounds like fun, you’re in for a treat, because Buenos Aires’ nightlife is legendary.
Napa Valley, California
We don’t know about you, but nothing makes us feel more romantic than a few glasses of wine. And Napa Valley has all of the vintage vino you could ask for.
Of course, it takes lovely weather to grow good grapes, which is another reason this area is so cozy. It’s perfect for sitting out on your deck and watching the sun turn the countryside red as it sets over the mountains.
Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston’s earned quite the reputation in recent years, as the quiet Southern city continues to charm visitors with its combination of beautiful architecture, amazing food, warm weather, and warmer people.
From hole-in-the-wall cafes to award-winning restaurants, there’s always plenty to eat and drink. But don’t worry, because you can get a little exercise strolling the historic streets with your special someone in tow.
Or maybe just snuggle up for a horse carriage ride and some sightseeing. Then retreat back to the room in your Victorian vacation rental.
Ah, Paris. We’re sure you were expecting this city to make the list, and sure, it’s a little cliché at this point.
But there are still few things that compare to sharing a bottle of wine with that special someone as you soak up the ambience of the Paris streets. There’s a reason this place is so synonymous with romance, after all.
So, come, see the sights, enjoy the food, and maybe French kiss under the Eiffel Tower. Or not. Either way, you and your date are sure to love it here.

If you think a bouquet of roses are romantic, wait until you see Kyoto when its famous cherry blossom trees are blooming.

From beach views to mountain views to your boo’s smiling face, Kauai is a place of unmatched beauty. And that makes it a perfect destination for a romantic vacation.
After your vacation in Greece, you’ll come to love the Mediterranean Sea almost as much as you love your spouse.

Make sure to catch the city’s famous sunsets from the balcony of your Greek villa. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that.
The combination of Willemstad’s gorgeous blue water and the colorful Dutch architecture that lines its coast makes for some truly wonderful and unique scenery. Whether you’re relaxing in the city or on one of the country’s pristine beaches, you and your loved one are in for a treat.
