National Parks Foundation picks 5 most romantic park getaways
The five romantic getaways include watching the sunset at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in California; paddling together through Florida's Everglades National Park; taking a scenic wagon ride in Oxon Cove Park, Maryland; going birding along the Padre Island National Seashore in Texas; and strolling along the beach in the Virgin Islands National Park.
What I like about this list is that it incorporates a little something for everyone. Active couples can paddle, hike or even snorkle, while those looking for a bit more relaxed experience have several options as well. These parks are scenic, and somewhat lesser known, but most definitely romantic all year round. I've personally been to several of the places on the list, and can attest to how wonderful they are – both as a couples escape and as an adventure travel destination.
So, if you missed the mark on Valentine's Day, or are already planning ahead for next year, this is a great list to give you some ideas. Of course, if you're a hopeless romantic at heart, why wait? Start planning your romantic national park getaway now.
