The last year has been incredibly tough for a lot of people, particularly couples that do not cohabitate and have not been able to spend time together for months on end. Although they might have had daily video chats and phone conversations, being kept apart physically can take its toll. Couples need to be together so that they can comfort one another, enjoy each other’s company, and make special memories they can cherish forever. If you have been unable to hug or kiss your partner over this last year thanks to lockdowns and restrictions, as these slowly ease perhaps you should plan a trip away together to make up for all of those lost hours. Here are some ideas for fantastic romantic escapes you can enjoy with each other when travel restrictions are lifted.

New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans is a city that is full of charm and has a lot to offer couples looking for a bit of romance. Take a walk and marvel at the beautiful architecture in the French Quarter, or even better, book in for a fun carriage ride to take in the historical sites. You can go dancing at one of the many famous Jazz clubs where you can enjoy a Sazerac or two, as well as choose from a range of delightful restaurants for a candlelit dinner.

Estes Park, Colorado

If you and your beau prefer getting out into open spaces rather than cityscapes, Estes Park in Colorado could be the ideal romantic location for you. It is located in the Rocky Mountain National Park and visitors will not only marvel at the breathtaking landscapes but can find plenty of things to keep them entertained as well. Of course, hiking through the park is a must, but you can also take a ride on the Estes Park Aerial Tramway if you would prefer a more relaxing approach to taking in the sights. You can also visit the Estes Park Museum to learn about its history and do a little shopping in town as well as grabbing a bite to eat. For couples who are horror fans and adore Stephen King, a stay in the famous Stanley Hotel is also a must.

Maui, Hawaii

If your ideal romantic escape includes white sandy beaches and sapphire waters, Maui should be on the top of your list. This gorgeous island has so much to offer couples who are looking to reconnect and fall even more in love with each other. Whether it is enjoying a sunset cocktail cruise, soaking up the sun side-by-side on the beach or enjoying some fine dining at night, Maui has it all. You can even find the perfect accommodation by checking out all of these fantastic Maui resorts.

New York, New York

Couples have been flocking to the Big Apple for decades and it is not surprising considering how much this metropolis has to offer. Fine dining, theatre, nightclubs, galleries, incredible parks, and many, many more sights to see – no one could be bored in this great city. It is ideal for couples who love the hustle and bustle and can work perfectly for both weekend getaways and extended trips. 

If you have been separated from your partner during the pandemic, consider visiting some of these romantic destinations so you can both reconnect and make up for the lost time.
