3 Must-Do Romantic Getaways For Two

By Kate Bustillos

Whether your idea of romance involves high-speed thrills or laid back luxury, these three destinations make it easy to plan a romantic getaway with RCI that’s a perfect match for your relationship.

Orlando: For The Young-At-Heart

Celebrate love in the City Beautiful. For dazzling sights, whimsical bites, and endless fun, Orlando, Florida, is the perfect romantic getaway for couples wanting to indulge their playful spirit.

Take your love to new heights — 400 feet, to be exact — on The Wheel at ICON Park. Ride in your own private capsule to the top of Orlando’s iconic observation wheel. Share a toast of sparkling wine while taking in a panoramic view of the city skyline. Then, head next door to the Sugar Factory for gourmet meals and creative twists on classic treats like the Bacon Cheeseburger Milkshake and their signature Rainbow Sliders served with a complimentary rubber ducky. The Sugar Factory is a popular spot, so be sure to book a reservation in advance.

Of course, Orlando is also the theme park capital of the world. From Cinderella’s castle to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, you can step into the worlds of your favorite childhood movies and books. Another great way to experience the magic of Orlando’s theme parks is by visiting their resorts and open-air entertainment complexes. Book a dinner reservation at one of Disney’s themed resort hotels, dance and dine the night away at Universal CityWalk, or enjoy shopping and snacking at Disney Springs (Gideon’s Bakehouse is a must).

Las Vegas: For The Adventurous

Let sparks fly in Las Vegas, Nevada! For daring couples who share a passion for adrenaline, a romantic getaway to Vegas is sure to give you butterflies. From pulsing lights and dancing fountains to infamous history and sensational entertainment, the city attracts thrill seekers and risk takers from around the world.

The Strat hotel and casino boasts the tallest observation tower in the U.S. In addition to hosting the famed Top of the World restaurant, the Strat offers a unique attraction that isn’t for the faint of heart. At SkyJump, experience a breathtaking view of the Neon Strip before leaping off the tower in an exhilarating 108-story plunge. For more heart-pounding fun, you can book the Strat’s unlimited rides package and brave three unique attractions that take thrill rides to a whole new level.

For a tantalizing culinary adventure, book your dinner reservation at Blackout, Vegas’ award-winning dining attraction. Stimulate your senses with an enticing 5-course feast served in total darkness and experience flavor like never before.

Asheville: For The Romantic

Reach cloud nine in the Land of the Sky. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville, North Carolina, is a vibrant city that seamlessly blends rustic charm and timeless elegance. Whether you’re in the mood for an idyllic outdoor excursion or a romantic promenade through picturesque scenery, Asheville is the perfect setting for a storybook love.

The stunning Biltmore Estate can easily become an all-day outing. Featuring 250 rooms and 8,000 acres, the Biltmore offers a variety of ways to experience the rich beauty and history of this century-old chateau style manor. Explore the Biltmore house and grounds on an exclusive guided tour or at your own pace. Stroll the majestic gardens and conservatory or relax with a complimentary wine tasting at the Biltmore Winery. To compliment your visit, you can enjoy shopping, dining, and entertainment at Biltmore’s charming Antler Hill Village.

For a cozy night out, Downtown Asheville is a lively historic district brimming with eclectic boutiques, gourmet dining, and beautiful architecture. Every street is brimming with a diverse selection of locally-owned shops and restaurants. From the artisan confections at French Broad Chocolate to craft brews, like the S’mores Porter at Hi-Wire Brewing. Take a historical scavenger hunt on the Asheville Urban Trail, a 1.7 mile self-guided walking tour through the downtown streets. Discover stories of Asheville’s past through a collection of 30 sculptures that serve as landmarks along the trail.
