Here are 6 amazing destinations in the US for your next romantic holiday:
1. Maui, Hawaii
On Maui, there’s no wrong answer to ‘What shall we do today?’ Wherever you turn, there’s something to see and do, something fun, something cultural and historic, something indulgent, something amazingly scenic.

The second largest of the Hawaiian Islands, Maui as a destination has the ideal tropical weather and sandy beaches, in addition to a range of luxurious properties to stay in.
For adventure lovers, an option to hike in Haleakala National Park is also an invigorating choice. The Pipiwai Trail has photo stops at a massive banyan tree, an eerie bamboo forest, and Makahiku and Waimoku Falls.

Many things make it the perfect holiday with your special someone.
2. Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Cape Cod and its islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are celebrated for their unadulterated shores and New England seaside way of life.
