Springtime can be a tricky season for a romantic vacation; the weather is iffy and spring breakers can clog the beaches. If you think outside of the box - and use these tips - March is a great time for a couples escape. Here are picks for romantic getaways in March:
Paris is a classic pick for a romantic vacation, but March is one of the best times to visit the City of Light. The French capital is thawing out after winter and the first buds of spring are opening - making the city even dreamier. Stroll the grand boulevards, lounge in a cafe, drink excellent French wine, and revel in the outstanding Parisian cuisine with your sweetheart. And little compares to the nighttime lights of Paris for a romantic walk home - without the crowds of summer.
Hit the Big Easy before it gets too hot. You may run into Mardi Gras if it falls in March, so plan far ahead if you do. Otherwise, enjoy strolling along the Mississippi River and the oak-studded streets of Uptown. Sample some of the world's best cuisine, too.
This quiet town on the California coast makes for one of the best romantic getaways in March. Take a drive along the dramatic Pacific Coast Highway (Big Sur is a must-see), eat excellent seafood, and sip locally-made wine with your significant other.
The weather in March is warm and sunny, making it a great time to visit this Australian state. Highlights include the Great Barrier Reef, the beaches of Noosa, and Daintree rainforest and Daintree Village.
Just two hours outside Los Angeles, Palm Springs has been an escape for famous Hollywood couples like Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Vacation rentals here boast beautiful poolside patios and beach access, and you'll be close to hiking trails and great shopping. Don't miss a tram ride up Mount San Jacinto.
Rent a flat in Rome and beat the summer throngs - and the oppressive heat. You'll have your pick of dreamy trattorias for enjoying dinner like the Italians do: drawn-out and delicious. Stroll along the streets with your significant other, stumbling across sights like the Forum, the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Hadrian's Mausoleum and the Pantheon.
Gorgeous Roatan Island, off the Caribbean coast of Honduras, was the setting for Temptation Island 3, but it is still relatively under the radar compared to other Caribbean destinations. The beaches and scenery here are outstanding, and in March you'll be there before the threat of hurricanes and tropical storms. Plan on snorkeling or scuba diving the reefs here, too.
This Oregon town easily makes our list for romantic getaways in March. With the snow-capped Cascade Mountains as a back-drop, Bend is a great place to shop and dine as well as a launch-point for mountain excursions. The Mount Bachelor ski area is close by as is Crater Lake National Park and whitewater rafting on the Deschutes River.
Located among towering red rocks in Utah's canyon country, Moab is a great spot for outdoorsy couples to visit in March. The weather's still a little chilly but you'll miss the crowds by coming this early in the spring. Use Moab as a launch point for adventures in Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park.
The dreamy Mediterranean weather will make you glad you chose this hedonistic Spanish city for a romantic getaway. Eat and drink in this city for foodies and wander the streets looking for Gothic or Gaudi architecture.
