When the winter blues start to get to you, it’s time to let romance heat up your life! And a couples trip is just the thing: relaxing, connecting, and finally giving your significant other the undivided attention they deserve.
Whether you’re looking for someplace sunny or want to cuddle up in the cool weather, we’ve got you covered. Check out our favorite destinations for starry-eyed romance.
Colorado Springs, CO
If you and your boo are fans of the Great Outdoors, then there’s no better place for the two of you than Colorado Springs.
Colorado Springs is basically a playground for nature lovers. And not just hiking and biking—think horseback riding, Jeep tours, ziplining, and other heart-pumping activities.
Nearby Pike’s Peak is a must-see, or must-climb, if you’re up for it! One of the highest peaks in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, this soaring national landmark will make you feel like you’re up in the clouds.
Oh, and while you’re in town, make sure you stop by the “Kissing Camels” rock formation in the spectacular Garden of the Gods Park for a quick kiss (and a great photo opp!).

You can stroll hand-in-hand through the town’s cobblestone streets, popping into boutiques, art galleries, and even a family-owned winery. Cap off your sightseeing with a candlelight dinner on the waterfront.
Surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and forests, Helen is the perfect place to unplug and focus on your partner.
