It may be tempting to head straight to the Big Apple with the apple of your eye, but the state of New York offers diverse options for travel to consider on your next romantic getaway. Long Island, which juts out to the east of Manhattan, offers long sand beaches on every side as well as many miles of farmland, charming towns, and colonial villages. To the West of Manhattan, upstate New York is home to many lakes and mountains. Only an hour outside the city, the Hudson River glitters as it runs through the picturesque Hudson Valley over which the Catskill Mountains tower. The more rugged Adirondack Mountains are excellent for hiking and downhill skiing, while Ithaca offers all the charms of a college town. In each of these destinations, we have a range of romantic options for an overnight stay. Toast to your love around the fire of a luxury tent or in the hot tub of a historic cabin in rugged and scenic New York State.
