Autumn is a great time to take romantic getaways with your sweetheart. With gorgeous scenery, cool crisp air and apple pie spices filling the air, fall is a very romantic time of the year. It’s the perfect time to visit new places with your loved one and soak in the beautiful colors of the changing leaves. If you want to spend some alone time with your sweetheart this fall, then check out these romantic getaways and destinations.
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
One of the most beautiful romantic getaways is Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Fall is a wonderful time to visit Cape Cod with your significant other. During the fall, the summer crowds start to fade. In spite of this, there are plenty of things to do in the fall in the Cape, such as the Haunted History Tour and the annual Cranberry Harvest Celebration. Or, if you prefer a more laid back getaway, you and your sweetheart can just enjoy the crisp summer nights relaxing by the sea.
The Cape Cod National Seashore has a biking trail that runs 26 miles along the Cape. This trail offers bikers scenic panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. While visiting the Cape, a great excursion for couples is a visit to nearby Martha’s Vineyard. You can see stunning geography, visit lots of quaint shops and enjoy wonderful accommodations. You might even spot a celebrity as lots of celebrities own vacation homes in the Vineyard, as it is known. There is nothing more beautiful than watching the sunset over the Cape Cod Canal during these autumn months.
Big Sur, California
Big Sur is lovely in the fall. The days are warm and nights are clear and starry. Choose a hotel or inn that overlooks the Pacific Coast for stunning vistas. Enjoy stargazing with your sweetheart or watch the whales migrate. The Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park is the perfect spot to catch a romantic coastal sunset. If the two of you enjoy being active, why not run the Big Sur River Run. This race, known as the most beautiful 10K in the world, takes place every October.
Another “must see” Big Sur location during this romantic getaway is the Bixby Bridge. Completed in 1932, it is one of the most photographed bridges in the world due to its stunning architecture and design.
Another one of the best fall romantic getaways is the one and only, Chicago. Spend a weekend this fall cuddled up with your significant other in The Windy City. The Chicago Botanical Garden is gorgeous in the fall. You can also bike along the city’s lakefront path and enjoy Chicago’s impressive skyline. If the two of you enjoy live entertainment, then you will not be disappointed with the options available in Chicago. You can enjoy everything from live comedy acts to large music festivals in The Windy City.
Chicago is one of the best romantic getaways due to the large amount of events held every Fall. From the annual Christkindlmarket open-air market, to the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, you and your loved one have many activities to enjoy together.
Cape May, New Jersey
Cape May is one of the least well known romantic getaways on this list, but don’t let that deter you! Located at the southern tip of New Jersey, this enchanting town sits right where Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean meet. It is the nation’s oldest Seaside resort and is easy to bike or walk. You and your sweetie will enjoy exploring gorgeous Victorian homes and other historic sites all over town. If you are lucky, you might get to enjoy seeing tons of monarch butterflies as they converge on this beach town during their annual migration.
Fall is the best time to enjoy intimate, romantic getaways in Aspen. You will be able to avoid the crowds that descend on the town from December to February. Temperatures are cool, making autumn a great time for outdoor pursuits, such as hiking and biking. Take a trip up to Maroon Bells to soak in beautiful vistas and unimaginable scenery. If you’re not the hiking type, you can choose to utilize the Silver Queen Gondola which will take you to the summit of Aspen Mountain. At nighttime, visit the World’s largest natural hot springs pool, the Glenwood Springs Pool.
Aspen is also one of the most beautiful places in the world to watch the leaves change color during the fall months. From greens, yellows, and reds, everywhere is full of lively color. Enjoy a picnic with your loved ones, and if you’re lucky, you’ll see some of the many elk and moose that call Aspen home.
While flying coach or business class on an airline is fine in some instances, there are times when arranging a private jet charter is the more practical way to go- especially for romantic getaways. In fact, this approach provides some benefits that are impossible to find with a commercial airline. Avoid the long security lines, the hundreds of people, and enjoy your intimate, romantic getaways with your loved one by your side.
