Do not miss out on the Almond Champagne atWilson Creek Winery, and you must book a candlelit dinner at South Coast’s own restaurant, The Vineyard Rose.

Book a room at theAudubon Cottages in the French Quarter to enjoy its famous salt water pool.

3. Telluride, Colorado
This high-altitude town will remind you of a Swiss Mountain village as you wander hand-in-hand through the wooden architecture. Make reservations to take the gondola up to 12,000 feet and indulge in classic Italian cuisine and award-winning wines atAlpino Vino. Book a room at the gorgeous and historicNew Sheridan Hotel. If you’re looking for something off of the beaten path, take a drive to nearby Ouray (just over an hour) and tuck intoBon Ton‘s giant baked garlic.

2. Big Sur, California
Rent a convertible in San Francisco, let your hair down and get your camera ready as you wind South on the Pacific Coast Highway with your partner. Things will start to feel like a fantasy as you reach this hideaway among the giant redwood trees. Check-in to the rustic-chicPost Ranch Inn and book a reservation for a sunset dinner at the inn’s Sierra Mar.

1. Sedona, Arizona
Completely encircled by hundred shades of rouge rocks, this old western film town will have you two feeling completely in awe. Explore the hippie shops filled with collections of crystals and Native American art. Try hiking to bell rock to see if you two can experience a vortex together. If you want to catch the sunset, make reservations atMariposa, sit on their large outdoor patio and watch as the red rocks illuminate and glow as the sun goes down. Don’t miss out on Sedona’s signature drink: The Prickly Pear Margarita.
