In April, your dreams of a romantic vacation are easily spoiled by hordes of rowdy students on spring break. But if you follow these suggestions, you'll be guaranteed some alone time - and some top-notch vacation destinations. Here are our tips for romantic getaways in April:
Not only is the Caribbean island of Tobago not typically on the spring break circuit, but if you time your trip right, you can catch the Plymouth Jazz Festival. The festival is quintessential of the low-key Caribbean culture. When you're not listening to music, Tobago's beaches are some of the best.
This South Carolina city is slow-moving and charming. The historic town boasts cobblestone streets, historic architecture and lush gardens. Take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage with your sweetheart, stroll the Battery at sunset, and explore Charleston Harbor for one of the best romantic getaways in April.
This Spanish city has ancient roots, making for a romantic setting. The narrow streets and Islamic touches will draw you in, while the hip culture, thriving nightlife, and abundance of tasty tapas will keep you busy. Head to the Alhambra, the ancient fortress perched on a hill with the snowy Sierra Nevada as the backdrop.
The Turkish city's stunning location on the Bosporus is reason enough to visit Istanbul. The European side of the strait is perhaps the most inviting, with its quaint neighborhoods perfect for walking. The weather is perfect here in April, so enjoy the open-air restaurants and wander the crowded bazaars. Make time to get out in the mountains or to the beach, too.
This Arizona desert town easily makes our list of romantic getaways in April. In the spring, before the summer's heat settles in, you can enjoy the stunning scenery from the deck or porch of your vacation rental. Dine in the excellent restaurants or browse the art galleries of Tlaquepaque. Don't miss sunset at Airport Mesa, Slide Rock State Park, or any of the myriad hiking trails that bring you up into Sedona's famous red rocks.
In this Arkansas town, you and your significant other can treat each other to a dip in the hot springs here, which are naturally 140 degrees (or hotter!). Relax in the springs and visit the various spas and mineral baths on Bathhouse Row in historic downtown. Consider a horse-drawn carriage ride through downtown and a dinner cruise on the Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat.
Visit one of the world's greatest cities with your sweetheart. Take a ride on the London Eye or a dinner cruise on the River Thames. Don't miss the sights like the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. The nightlife in Soho and Shoreditch are excellent, too.
The Canadian city has managed to stay low-key with tourists despite being an excellent destination, especially for those seeking romance. Check out the funky neighborhood of Old Strathcona in Edmonton and hit up world-famous mountain destinations like Lake Louise, Banff National Park and Jasper National Park for one of the best romantic getaways in April.
This collection of 700 Greek islands is a bucket-list destination for romantic vacations. The islands sit in the gorgeous Aegean Sea with ferries running to each of the populated islands. Stunning beaches, boating opportunities, and the protected island of Alonissos, a National Marine Park, are highlights.
The big city is beautiful in the spring, when flowers burst open in Chicago's Millennium Park. Stroll along the lake, check out the city's world-famous architecture, and enjoy meals in some of Chicago's excellent restaurants.
