Couples visiting the East Coast will find diverse topography that offers a range of choices for their next romantic retreat. The Eastern Seaboard comprises the rocky bays and the sand beaches that fringe the Atlantic Ocean from Maine to Florida. Whether you love a crisp ocean view or prefer to be surrounded by lush vegetation, the East Coast is full of natural beauty and is also chock full of history. The thirteen original colonies spanned the coast, early settlers raising houses along newly-founded ports. Several spectacular mountain ranges rise to the west, dotted by quaint villages, some of which have been preserved as they were a hundred years ago. The mountainous regions of New England are verdant and lush, transitioning into rolling hills and then into marshland to the south. The astounding topographical diversity from the north to the south of the East Coast would take a lifetime of exploration to fully grasp. Get started by booking a romantic cottage in the North or a idyllic house boat in the South and make your way up or down the coast.
