Most Romantic Places in the United States

#1: Napa Valley, CA

Being probably the most popular wine destination in the U.S. Napa Valley makes the perfect romantic getaway spot for those couples that enjoy sipping on a glass of wine and cozying up together with the beautiful scenic views of vineyards and landscapes around them.

One of the most popular things to do while visiting Napa Valley is The Napa Valley Wine Train. This is a 36-mile train adventure that offers up delicious gourmet eats paired with some of Napa Valley’s finest wines.

There’s also the Robert Louis Stevenson State Park and O’Brien Estate. This is a 40-acre vineyard where you can see the entire wine-making process happen.

The wine tour at O’Brien’s is one of the most popular tours in Napa Valley because the tour guides provide such a great and informative experience for their visitors.

I do suggest looking into Sonoma vs Napa because those areas have different vibes and you might find Sonoma a better fit.
