Top 10 Most Romantic Spots in the U.S.

    To understand just how good our most romantic list in the United States of America is, look at what we had to turn down. A night under the stars at Mesquite Springs in Death Valley National Park. The slopes of Aspen, Colorado, Big Sky, Montana and Stowe, Vermont. The steamy geysers of Yellowstone National Park and ethereal quality of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Central Park and the top of the Empire State Building. The Seattle Space Needle and Puget Sound. Cumberland Island National Seashore and the Everglades of Florida. A sunset walk in Crissy Field, San Francisco. And so on.

    The final tally includes a duo of stellar heritage districts, an incomparable volcano, rosy botanical garden, two of the best restaurants on the planet, a gargantuan cave system and a world wonder of a canyon. All extraordinarily romantic, Valentine’s Day or not.

    10. Hayden Planetarium at Rose Center for Earth and Space
    79th Street and Central Park West, Manhattan, New York

    The Big Apple’s icons – from Broadway to the Statue of Liberty – loom large on the February 14 agenda but the peerless planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History is the best way to see the stars. For dinner, make a beeline for Masa (if you have the lucre) or Frankies Spuntino in Brooklyn.

      The whole point with a trip like this is: not to book a hotel in advance and stay wherever the trip leads you. Sick of packaged happiness, sterile rooms and fake smiles
