Romantic Getaways in November
One of the best parts about romantic getaways in November is how uncrowded most of the venues are. While the early autumn's falling leaves attract a lot of couples looking for great scenery, the impending holidays tend to keep the larger crowds away until New Year's. As the cuddling weather settles in, you and your sweetheart should consider renting a place at one of the following awesome locations.
San Diego, California
San Diego averages temperatures in the 60s during November, and there are a lot of relatively near places worth visiting. The tip of the iceberg is Knott's Berry Farm
and just about any beach. Despite being swamped during the summer, the beaches are ghost towns after Labor Day in spite of the mild weather.
This is the warm season down under, and Sydney offers lots of romantic fun. Play with your beloved at Bondi Beach
, or take in some great classical music together at the Sydney Opera House
. Sydney is a massive, bustling city, but the locals still find a way to be laid-back. It's also a very American-friendly place.
Step out of your rental to one of the best romantic getaways in November. Argentina is a stable, safe place with some incredible sites to see together, such as Iguazu Falls
and the Valdes Peninsula
. Just like the previous entry, this is the southern hemisphere - so warmer weather is just beginning.
New York, New York
New York City is a great place to take in the extreme energy of this metropolis. November is especially exciting because of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
, which is the largest parade of its kind in the country. Have you ever kissed your love under a gigantic Kermit the Frog? You can make that happen.
Plymouth also hosts a great Thanksgiving parade
, but the festivities stretch out longer. One of the major highlights of this parade is its focus on the history of the United States, from the 17th century to the present - and your future together. The classic cars are kept by enthusiasts and the floats are made by hand, so American craftsmanship is on display the entire time.
Even Detroit has a great Thanksgiving celebration. One of the best ways to enliven your vacation is to sign up for the road race that happens before the parade itself. Work up a sweat with your sweetheart on the 10k Turkey Trot
or go a little easier with the Mashed Potato Mile.
One of the most enjoyable romantic getaways in November is in Miami. If you love carnivals as much as your significant other, Santa's Enchanted Forest
is a great way to bring out your inner child while spending some quality time together. Step out of your rental and into a winter wonderland.
Take a carriage ride around town and enjoy some history. If you happen to be in Austin during the last week of the month, check out the Victorian Christmas
on Sixth Street .
If you've never heard of the Long Trail
, it's more than 270 miles of hiking goodness stretching from Vermont all the way to Canada. You can take a day trip on this with your sweetheart and have a great time in nature, and still be back in your rental for dinner.
November is great because of Denver Arts Week
, when the artist community comes out in full force to show what they've got. Film screenings, galleries and open studios await. See some beautiful things with the most amazing person in your life, and it'll be a great experience for both of you.
