"Bora Bora, Tahiti" —Lashonda P. Tillis
"We love the Scottish highlands. You're able to find seclusion and just be together. There is something so spiritual in the natural beauty of the area that it offers a wonderful connection to experience that with someone you love. We're never more refreshed as a couple as we are after a visit to the highlands." —Jill Masse Stokes

"What could be more romantic than Paris? Sipping champagne as the sun sets. Sailing down the Seine. Cozy bistros. Delicous wines. Lovely fashions. The only way it would have been better is if I had a honey to take with me." —Carol Davison
"Venice!" —Corinne Appleton
"We came to Savannah in October of 2005 and fell in love with it. Got married and moved there in 2010." —@thehowieee
"Santorini, Greece."—Ania Walters
"Palawan, Philippines! So quiet, serene, and beautiful!" —@angelinaaucello
"Koh Samui, Thailand. It's just a perfect environment for couples that want to get away." —@Adlib-Traveler
"The Grand Canyon at sunset." —Brenda Scott
"Perhaps weirdly, one of our most romantic vacations was at a cabin in Tettegouche State Park in northern Minnesota in early fall. No one else was around, and we had a canoe and a lake to ourselves...perfect. (And yes, we've been to the Caribbean and Hawaii.)" —Susan Campbell Beachy
"Bar Harbor, Maine." —Terry Taylor McCann
"Hilton Head Island and Savannah in September when crowds are gone. So lovely!" —@shelley_noel
"Iceland." —Dima Shkarovetskiy
"Sydney, watching the sunset over the Harbour Bridge and Opera House from Mrs. Macquarie's Chair." —Carl J. Woodin
"Barbados! You can drive around the entire island in a day and each coast brings you something different. Truly amazing to feel like you and your loved one are the only ones on the island watching the waves approach from a birds eye view!" —Melissa Thompson
"Wine trails. Perfect B&Bs, great food, beautiful scenery. Oh, and wine." —@BoldWandering
"So many, it's hard to choose from, but Cartagena de Indias, Colombia is so romantic! Amazing food, people, sights, and places off the beaten path. I also love that it's not the 'run of the mill' destination like Paris (over-hyped and over-done) or Hawaii (which I love, but not very original)." —Heather Wilson
"Maldives!" —@TetToralba
"Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica! Sun, nature, fresh fruit, and beautiful views!" —@patricialu88
"Costa Rica or Puerto Rico for sexy adventurers! And Santorini was breathtaking." —Erin Renshaw
"Amalfi Coast, Naples, Sorrento, Capri...the perfect place for falling in love." —@H10AndaluciaPla
"Down East Maine cannot be beat for getting away from it all. The food, the people, the scenery are all top notch. My hubby and I just returned from an amazing week there. Hope to go back someday." —Missy Harris Stanaford
"A cruise of course; we can be alone when we want or we can party when we want. The best of both worlds." —Terri Knespler Pamatat
"We had an amazing week on Little Gasparilla Island, near Venice, FL. It's only accessible by boat—our rented home for a week was exactly what we wanted—no neighbors, the beach on one side of the house, and fishing dock on the other. The sunsets on the Gulf are amazing every night." —Brittany Hugley
"Clifden, West Ireland. Amazing food, people, live music, and stunning views." —Samantha Jones
