February 22, 2023
2023-02-22
The United States doesn't get enough credit as a romantic destination. It's a popular country with many exciting things to offer, sure, but it's not exactly the first place couples have in mind when they plan their honeymoon or romantic getaway. They're more focused on the old-world cities in Europe or the sunny tropics in the Caribbean or Southeast Asia. And though that's all well and good, there are still many romantic cities in the United States too. There are New York City, Sonoma, Aspen, New Orleans, and Williamsburg, to name a few. Couples would do well to learn more about them!

The Most Romantic Cities in The United States


New York City

No surprise, right? Despite being what is perhaps the busiest city in the world, New York City is still a romantic destination. Don't you think that navigating such a bustling metropolis with your special someone is pretty romantic? It's as if you beat all odds when you get or stay together here. It also helps that there are many romantic spots in New York City too. You and your partner can get just as lovey-dovey in places like the Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Central Station, the High Line Park, the MET Cloisters, and the Bow Bridge in Central Park.

New Orleans

The city that gave birth to jazz is no doubt a romantic destination too! Welcome to New Orleans! Located in the southern state of Louisiana, this place has a lot of history to it. As well as a colorful heritage that they're more than proud to share. As already mentioned, New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz music. You can hear it on practically every corner of the city, but especially on the famous Bourbon street. No matter the time of day, there will be musicians playing their tunes here. Sounds like the perfect place for a date, doesn't it?

San Francisco

For these next few cities in the United States, let's head on over to the sunnier West Coast. Specifically, in the massive state of California. A place this big is bound to have more than one romantic destination. And right off the bat, there's its famous Bay Area. Just like New York City, San Francisco tends to be extremely busy. But that doesn't take away from the romance of it all. Primarily known for its LGBTQ+ scene, the fact that it's a city that embraces the 'Love Wins!' ideology already makes it romantic. But don't forget the popular date-worthy San Francisco spots like the Palace of Fine Arts and Dolores Park.

Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara may not be one of the most famous cities in the United States, but it's definitely among the most romantic. Its Mediterranean-style aesthetic harkens back to the paradisical escapes of the said region. Think the French Riviera, the Greek Islands, and the Italian peninsula. There's no doubt that these places are perfect for a honeymoon, which makes a city like Santa Barbara just as worthy. With a magnificent mountain range at the backdrop paired with California's signature sunny weather, you and your partner couldn't have picked a better place for your romantic getaway on the West Coast.

Sonoma

Speaking of mountain ranges and that kind of natural wonder, California also has the stunning city of Sonoma. Located all the way in the northern part of the state, this is where you'll get your fix of lush greeneries and botanical bliss. Its Victorian-style aesthetic is charming, sure, but they arguably pale in comparison to the vast vineyards, open meadows, and sweeping landscapes. Anyone who runs a travel inspo Instagram account will have a lot of great content to work with. As for couples who just want to have a good time, they can go on wine-tasting tours, visit the chic art galleries, or simply just embrace the quiet lifestyle here.

Charleston

Situated on a scenic peninsula, the city of Charleston in South Carolina definitely ranks among the most romantic cities in the United States. It's a place steeped in history and heritage, with all sorts of hotspots and districts that take you back in time. In a way. Charleston and other cities of its kind are the USA's answer to Europe's many old-world towns and districts. One day here is enough to feel the spirit of the past. As well as for you to revel in the romance of its history. Among the best places for couples here are the coastal Battery district and the historic Marion Square.

Williamsburg

If you're up for some more historic beauty, look no further than Williamsburg, Virginia! Not to be confused with the popular Williamsburg district in Brooklyn, New York. Though both have their fair share of well-preserved history and heritage, the colonial style of Williamsburg, Virginia hits differently. The city really makes you feel like you traveled back in time. So much so that you might even end up wondering if you're still in the 21st century. With its Victorian houses and horse-drawn carriages, you can get lost in all the nostalgic romance of the city.

Aspen

More so a ski resort town than anything else, it's easy to overlook Aspen, Colorado as a romantic destination. It's a great place for you and your friends and family to enjoy a winter holiday, sure, just like in Canada or the French Alps. But a honeymoon with your new spouse? Or even just a simple romantic getaway? Well, why not? Despite how popular it is, Aspen isn't as busy as many of the other cities on this list. It may get pretty crowded at times, sure, but never as hectic as the likes of New York and San Francisco. If you go here at a great time, you can enjoy its many natural wonders all to yourselves!

Kailua-Kona

There's no way the island of Hawaii won't make it unto this list. And though there are many more famous cities out there, there's just something about Kailua-Kona that's extremely romantic. Nestled on the west coast of the island, it's a fairly small and rural town. You can barely call it a city, perhaps it's closer to a commune, the kind you'd see in Europe. In any case, it's the serenity and coastal beauty of the place that makes it worthy of a spot on this list. It's a true “escape” in every sense of the word.
