You must know, that many famous romantic places aren't as romantic as they depicted on the post cards. For example, the Eiffel Tower - Paris's symbol of romance. People have wait about 45 minutes and pay 12 Euro per person to take a crowded trip with nauseous tourists. It's still worth a visit, but not a for a romantic time spending. You should walk around the historic Montmartre neighborhood, and have some cafe au lait at an out-of-the-way cafe.
It's all the same with all the other most visited and famous places in the world. Each and every city has unique places for romantic privacy. If you're looking for personal experience with your co-traveler, you should seek out infamous museums, attractions and monuments. Or, you can visit crowded places early in the morning.
Instead of staying in an expensive hotel room, try to find a place where you can feel yourself more like at home. It's particularly romantic, because couples can make a familiar and comfortable retreat in an unfamiliar place.
Of course, long beach walks are truly romantic. But, you are surely more original than that! That's what you should try. Take your loved one to Alaska, Rockies or Iceland or any other wintry "undiscovered" place and book some clearly snug lodging. Snow-caped mountains, cracking fireplace, jacuzzi will definitely make your trip unusually romantic. There you can take a ride through a snowy forest, ski downhill or skate on a frozen lake. And after that come back to your cozy lodging and warm up with your sweet loved one! And sometimes you will get cheap airfare tickets to such "unpopular" places for romantic vacations - another thing to consider when planning your trip.
If you're a parent, many family resorts' elements tend to destroy the adult idea of romance. Well, there's a way to get a one-on-one precious moments! There are multiple organized childcare programs and activity centers. Many cruise lines have different programs for children, while mom and dad chill in spa or dine out.
