When planning a vacation, one of the most important things is choosing the right destination based on who you’re going with. If you’re looking to get romance in the air, then a city break is the easy way to go. But which city do you hit up? Here, we’re going to look at five of the most romantic options and what each of them has to offer.

New Orleans, Louisiana

One of the most romantic and old-fashioned cities that the country has to offer. New Orleans has plenty of great architecture to go strolling by, not to mention plenty of jazz venues to enjoy a date night in. If you charter a boat on Lake Pontchartrain, you can enjoy an unforgettable sight of the sunset with a glass of champagne in each hand to make for one heck of an opening to a night of romance.

New York, New York

Where better for a night of fairytale romance? NYC for couples offers a totally different experience to going there alone, which is why it’s one of the most popular destinations for proposals across the country. From its extensive range of romantic parks, including the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, to a date night out on Broadway, not to mention the lover’s favorite, Niagara Falls, not too far away, there’s always something to do in New York.

Scottsdale, Arizona

If you’re looking to get away from the stresses of everyday living, then the immense landscapes surrounding the city of Scottsdale can be the perfect thing. A hike through the rocky wilderness doesn’t have to be all that far away from comfort and luxury, as the many spas of Scottsdale can show. What’s more romantic than an adventure followed by a couples’ massage for some real pampering?

Nashville, Tennessee

A modern and progressive hub in the south, Nashville offers the perfect combination of folksy tradition with all of the convenience and comfort expected of a modern city. It’s especially good if you got a fondness for a live show, with the Grand Ole Opry offering live concerts three times a week. There’s also the Country Music Hall of Fame where you can pay tribute to some of the great romantic songwriters of our time.  The John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge offers some particularly gorgeous views if you want to go out for a walk, too.

Dallas, Texas

Often underrated, Dallas can be one of the most romantic destinations you set foot in your life. It’s a cultural hive of activity, with the Dallas Museum of Art making for a great date during the day, and the museum bar can keep the fun going into the night. If you’re looking for a bite to eat, then it’s hard to go wrong with one of the city’s steakhouses, too.

There are plenty more cities that can work as excellent romantic destinations. Making a habit out of taking a romantic city break can help you see a lot more of the country while also allowing you to keep growing that romantic bond, too.
