Romantic Weekend Getaways in the US

Christmas is over, so Valentine’s Day must be round the corner, and in anticipation of that, here are some of the most romantic weekend getaways in the US. 

First We’ll Take Manhattan: In spite of its size, Manhattan is considered one of the most romantic places in the U.S.A. Whether you simply want to enjoy dinner in your hotel suite or dine at any one of the five-star restaurants, the night is always young for lovers who seek solitude in a city that hosts millions of tourists each year. Take a carriage ride through Central Park, enjoy an opera or classical performance at the Lincoln Center, or just hand in hand walk along Fifth Avenue during the evening; the city offers something for everyone

No matter what your budget is; Manhattan is more than accommodating. You can spend a fabulous weekend in New York City and stay at the Marriott Hotel on Broadway, for example, which is right near the Theatre District; or you can book a weekend at the Plaza Hotel overlooking Central Park. Perhaps you would like to stay at the Mandarin Hotel and Spa where you can both be pampered for the weekend. 

What about San Francisco? With its rolling hills, fantastic cuisine, and friendly people; San Francisco offers hotel stays that are sure to bring out your romantic side. Among the most notable hotels are the Fairmont hotel, located in the Nob Hill area (yes it’s really called that); the Mandarin Oriental, which is known for its best views of the Bay and the city; or the downtown W San Francisco hotel that is close to cable cars, shopping, restaurants, and theatres.

Stroll along Fisherman’s Wharf and stop by Ghirardelli Square where you can pick up some of their famous chocolate before having dinner at one of the many seafood restaurants there such as McCormick and Kuleto’s, where the panoramic view of the Bay, as well as Alcatraz island; both of which are a stunning backdrop. You may also wish to stop by O’Neill’s Irish Pub for an after-dinner drink. You may leave your heart here after departing this great city by the Bay.

Las Vegas. If bright lights, big city are your thing, time will stand still at this resort destination. With a myriad of hotels to choose from you can enjoy yourself here without having to worry about time, because there are no clocks in the casinos.

With great weather year round (hot, but always dry), you can wile away the early morning hours by the hotel pool and enjoy the evening nightlife, attending a fabulous show or try and see if lady luck is on your side at the casino.

Whether you take a stay at the Venetian Hotel and enjoy a romantic ride on a gondola; enjoy the Spa and Salon at the Hotel Bellagio; or marvel at the lush indoor gardens, aquarium, check out the pyramids, or the Secret Garden at the Mirage; Las Vegas is both affordable for any budget and is the perfect weekend romantic getaway.

Lake Placid. Far away from the maddening crowd, you will find comfort and romance at the Mirror Lake Inn. With gorgeous mountain and lake views, a real fireplace, and very large baths, you will find the accommodation more than satisfactory. With all the facilities conducive to a romantic weekend.

Among the many things you might like to do is to take a walk to the neighboring town of Lake Placid, only two miles away. Here you will find shops along Main Street and you can stop at the Cottage for lunch. Swimming, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking are some of the livelier activities available here.

The calm and quiet ambience of this Inn is the perfect weekend getaway destination for couples.
