You’ve done the B&B on the hillside and the long weekend on the coast; now, it’s time you take your relationship to the next level – and a high-octane one at that. Get to the nitty-gritty of Utah and Colorado, exploring red-rock deserts and lush forests at a quickened pace, rafting, wild swimming and hiking to your heart’s delight. Take relationship-building to new heights traversing the Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park, only to get closer on the ground after sipping drinks at the spooky Stanley Hotel.
There’s a chance you’ll be torn between what or who is more picturesque: Alaska or your other half. With an estimated 100,000 glaciers, 6,640mi (10,686km) of coastline and 17 of the highest peaks in the US, Alaska is renowned for its scenic landscapes. Snuggle up to one another in below-freezing temperatures while visiting Denali State Park to participate in a guided snowshoeing experience and getting up close to Matanuska Glacier, one of the largest in the state.
