A romantic winter weekend escape is a sure-fire way to bring some spark (see what we did there?!) into your relationship! Here are some perfect winter escapes to up the romance this season.
1. Estes Park, Colorado
Does snuggling under a blanket by a roaring fire fit your idea of a romantic couples' weekend getaway? Estes Park might be the answer. From high-end luxury stays to more budget rustic cabins, this little town offers them all. If you and your significant other enjoy nature, this destination will particularly impress with the sheer number of enchanting trails and mountain views of the nearby Rocky Mountain National Park.
2. Terlingua, Texas
Looking for a romantic couples' weekend getaway that takes you away from the crowds for some much needed "us time"? Terlingua may not make it to every list since the newly established luxury accommodation Summit at Big Bend is still considered a hidden gem. With some of the darkest skies in the lower 48 and over 1,000 acres of raw desert land, this place exudes serenity! Stay in a luxurious cave that offers modern amenities while offering you absolute privacy, or choose from their stargazing domes and other options.
Between January and March, Vermont gets transformed into a winter wonderland, perfect for a weekend couples’ retreat that is both romantic and restful. Vermont is not just a skier’s paradise but is also great for insanely scenic drives, quaint little historic towns, and tranquil walks and hikes.
4. Mammoth Lakes, California
Located in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Mammoth Lakes is one of best couples’ getaways in the US. The region gets an average of 400 inches of snow annually, giving Mammoth a longer-than-usual ski season. Their on-the-snow light show, aka lots of fireworks, is the perfect excuse to book a special romantic winter weekend getaway.
