Location 1: The Grand Canyon, Arizona
If you are an elder couple and a lot of the suggestions so far sound a bit too active for you, do not worry! Romantic getaways do not need to be full of activities in order to be fulfilling and worth your time. Sometimes we need to take things slow and only participate in more physical activities when we feel like it.
This is why the Grand Canyon is the best place where you can have the best of both worlds! You can both have the relaxing part of it, with long boat rides and private tours for couples, or more intense activities like rock climbing and long hikes! You can even take helicopter rides if that sounds like something you would enjoy!
And you do not have to camp or have an RV in order to make the most of a vacation at the Grand Canyon. There are a myriad of hotels and other accommodations available in the nearby towns that will be full of all the amenities you might need to be comfortable and be able to relax after a day in the Arizona sun!
Not to mention, you cannot deny that watching the sunset or the sunrise over the canyon with your significant other is going to be super romantic! a memory you are not going to forget anytime soon!
Location 2: The Pacific Coast Highway, California
You do not have to go out of the country in order to have an amazing romantic holiday with your partner or spouse! You can very well travel inside the country and have the same great experience, all the while appreciating the vast and diverse sights that the United States has to offer.
If you are a seasoned traveler, or even if you are just now getting into traveling with your partner, the Pacific Coast Highway is a great place to start! And before you discredit it, hear us out!
This highway is considered one of the most scenic drives all across the USA (and we are confident it is among the most beautiful ones in the world as well), and this way you will go down most of the Pacific coastline of California.
You can take leisurely drives while taking in the amazing scenery, and you can stop at some of the most iconic Californian landmarks. You definitely cannot miss the Big Sur Coast Byway and the Art Colony of Caramel!
Start your journey at the border with Oregon, and then go where the highway takes you. It is an easy drive, and many have managed to rekindle their spark with their loved ones on this trip! So if you are looking for a romantic moment to share between the two of you, this is it.
Not to mention, if you are looking for a stress-free, relaxing vacation amidst all the hustle and bustle of life, this one is for you!
Location 3: The Danube River, Central & Eastern Europe
If you are looking for the ultimate relaxing and romantic experience, why not go on a cruise? And we don’t just mean any cruise; we mean one that will allow you to explore new places and even see parts of Europe that few people get to see!
This relaxing trip for retirees is going to be perfect if you want to go to Central Europe, as it would take you down the Danube River, and it is considered one of the most beautiful and calming cruises you can take. You will be able to stop and explore important cities on the course of the cruise, and in between, the scenery you will be able to take in will be spectacular. Some of the rivers you will be able to see include the Danube (of course), along the Drave, the Rhine, the Leitha, and the Mur, among others.
