Sedona and Paradise Valley (Arizona)
Mountains of red rocks, canyons with steep walls and huge pine forests. This is the scenery that you will find in the state of Arizona. And one of the destinations that stands out the most as a one of the best weekend getaway for couples is Sedona.
In addition to the lush landscape, you can enjoy the spas, take a tour on the Verde Valley Wine Trail or visit one of the famous national parks, such as Red Rock State Park, the Grand Canyon, or Petrified Forest National Park.
However, if you are a couple that prefers something more luxurious, Paradise Valley may be the best option for a weekend getaway in the region. You can choose from golfing, to a massage at a spa or a tour that includes haute cuisine.
Seattle and San Juan Islands (Washington)
If you think it’s odd for Seattle to appear on the list of the best romantic weekend getaways for couples, you clearly haven’t been there. It can be a walk on Alki Beach, a picnic or sunset at Golden Gardens Park, a ride on the ferris wheel, or a visit to the Space Needle, allowing you a 360 ° view of the city. If you and your partner are looking for more cultural and historical tours, there are numerous museums in the city to check out.
Seattle can also be amazing for my fellow whiskey lovers! The city has some sophisticated whiskey bars, with classic drinks and artisanal cocktails, which are worth visiting (and drinking).
One last thing to check out while on your romantic long weekend getaway in Washington, is the San Juan Islands. The San Juan islands are the best for couples looking to relax, slow down, and connect with nature. Most of the islands are isolated and access is hard to come by.
However, it is possible to see some wild animals, including orcas, with a tour of the Lopez, Orcas and San Juan islands.
