We have compiled our list of the top 3 destinations for an undeniably romantic getaway. Can you guess where they are?
When it’s summertime in the Northern Hemisphere, the weather is warm nearly anywhere you go.
But where can you find:
- Tons of sunshine?
- Endless luxury accommodations?
- Fresh, just-caught seafood?
- Over 800 miles of beaches?
Did we mention the year-round sunshine?
It’s none other than The Sunshine State of Florida! With all this to offer, it’s no wonder why this is one of the most romantic destinations in the world. For all the lovers in the house, here is our list of the top three destinations and activities for a romantic Florida holiday.
Destination: St. Pete Beach
Activity: Watching the sun set.
If you’re all about sunsets, St. Pete Beach is no doubt on your radar. And there’s no shortage of spots to turn up the romance meter. The views here are breathtaking. With a cocktail to sip on the rooftop of Hurricane, a club located on the beach near Pass-a-Grille, the vibe is complete. Or, if you prefer a bit of music with your sunset kisses, grab a spot in the sand at Paradise Grille and watch the sun sink below the waters of the Atlantic. Call it a night and hang your hat at the Don CeSar Hotel, also known as the Pink Palace.
Destination: Key Biscayne
Activity: Climbing to the top of the lighthouse.
There’s just something romantic about spiral staircases. A spiral staircase with over 100 steps? That leads to the top of a lighthouse that guided seafarers and has withstood the test of time for nearly 200 years? With panoramic views of the Atlantic awaiting you at the top? There’s nothing like it.
Located in Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park on Key Biscayne (a mere seven miles outside of Miami), the Cape Florida Lighthouse is open to the public every Thursday through Monday. Past visitors have popped the question here — and celebrated anniversaries, too. Afterwards, grab something to eat at Dune Oceanfront and then an after-dinner cocktail at Cantina Beach before you head to your luxury accommodations at The Ritz-Carlton.
Destination: The Florida Keys
Activity: Kissing underwater.
Okay, so you can kiss underwater anywhere, right? But in the Florida Keys, home of the only live coral reef in the United States, there’s just something a bit more magical about locking lips as a school of silvery yellowtail snappers watch the show. There’s a state park here dedicated to the reef, as well as a sunken U.S. naval ship with an ecosystem all its own. Dry off and relax in your accommodations at Little Palm Island Resort & Spa — consider couples massages to really end the getaway on a high note. You can only get to the resort by air or water, and the thatched roof of your luxe hut add an air of adventure.
