The Best Anniversary Getaways in the USA
You can celebrate a milestone in your life with dinner and a movie, or give your sweetie the gift of exploration and discovery. Which sounds better to you? I value experience over objects, so I am going to choose to travel at every opportunity. (I guess that's why I became a travel advisor!) Anniversaries should be more special than your average weekly day night! My husband and I try to get away for at least a long weekend every anniversary, but I don't think that will happen this year. Even though I will mostly be homebound for my 14th wedding anniversary in August, I won't stop dreaming, and neither should you! I am planning an epic 15th anniversary trip for 2021; all I have to do is pick the destination. Do you need a little travel inspiration for your romantic trips? Look no further, here is Part 2 of my Anniversary Getaways in the USA.
Palm Beach, Florida
Palm Beach is separated from mainland Florida by the Lake Worth Lagoon. Glitzy estates and marvelous beaches are the main draws of Palm Beach. But you will also find upscale boutiques, galleries, and Michelin rated restaurants. If you crave a luxury beach getaway with incredible shopping, Palm Beach is perfect for you.
Romantic resorts Jessie recommends for Palm Beach Four Seasons Palm Beach, Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa, and The Breakers Palm Beach.
Start with scenery that makes your heart skip a beat, and then head out to discover the hundreds of adventures that Sedona has to offer. It nestles among a geological wonderland and red rock formations. Art galleries and boutiques live next to creeks and hiking trails. You will never be bored in Sedona.
Romantic resorts Jessie recommends for Sedona Enchantment Resort, L'Auberge de Sedona, and Mii Amo.
Big Sur, California
Big Sur is a rugged stretch of coast in California that stretches between Carmel and San Simeon, To the east lies the Santa Lucia Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean lies to the west. You traverse it by driving down a narrow, 2-lane road. Pacific Coast Highway is known for winding turns, towering seaside cliffs, and misty coastline. Don't forget to hike through the majestic redwoods.
Romantic resorts Jessie recommends for Big Sur Post Ranch Inn, Ventana Big Sur, and Casa Palmero.

New York City, New York
Combine Broadway, incredible shopping, delicious world-famous restaurants, and you get one of the most romantic city escapes in the world. You can visit Elmo and Pikachu at Times Square, or take a horse-drawn carriage around the city. No romantic trip to NYC would be complete without a picnic in Central Park.
Romantic resorts Jessie recommends for NYC Mandarin Oriental, St Regis New York, and Intercontinental New York Barclay.
