From Jurassic Park to Raiders of the Lost Ark, the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands is unarguably one of the most beautiful.

2. For the Thrill Seekers

Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas isn’t just for bachelor and bachelorette parties. The excitement that flows through Vegas is almost electrifying. So much to do, you probably won’t get to do it all. Ladies, get tickets to a show; Gentlemen, take a few laps around the casino floor. End the night with a romantic dinner at a posh restaurant. Who knows? Spontaneous weddings occur daily in Vegas.

 

3. For the Artistic

Polite and friendly is how you can describe the people of Savannah. Everything  operates just a little slower, so take the opportunity to slow down together and forget about your stress.

Lucky for your pocketbook, Napa is much more economical during the month of romance since the summer months are their peak season for tourists. Be sure to leave the kids at home because many of Napa’s wineries are adult-only. This is a city for couples who enjoy spending alone time at a spa.

 

8.  For the Environmentalists

Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon
Portland is a very health-conscious, earth-friendly city where people are encouraged to just be themselves. Their train line is affordably priced and above ground, which makes it easy for visitors to go almost anywhere in the city quickly. Track down the cutest, most “green” bed & breakfast and take an afternoon to visit the exquisite Portland Rose Gardens.
