6 of the Most Romantic Destinations on the Planet to Create New Memories with the Love of Your Life

Ready to add a romantic journey to your love story?

This week's article is in honor of love. This last month I was blessed to partake in a grand celebration of love with my best friend and her soul mate. A wedding that has got me still feeling the love.

While the newlyweds just returned from wandering through Paris, Southern France, and Spain creating new memories in their love story, I wanted to take the opportunity to bottle up this loving feeling and share 6 of Summit to Sand's favorite romantic destinations.

Whether you are newlyweds just starting your love story, celebrating a special anniversary, or need to dust off the cover and reignite your love, these destinations have the romantic flare you desire.

No matter where you go there is always an opportunity to deepen your connection with your other half, but there is something truly special about these unique romance havens.

These destinations with gorgeous tranquil sandy beaches, fairy tale settings, cobblestone streets, dining under candlelight creating new traditions, all set the perfect scene for your love story to unfold.

If you are the non-romantic type, these getaways around the world provide the best blank page for even the most adventurous duo to create your own "off the beaten path" type of memories for your journey together.

If you are ready to take your love to new heights read on.


As I was typing this, I received a facetime call from my friend on the Arc de Triumph with the Eiffel Tower's shimmering light spectacle going off in the background. I cried.

Paris is far more than sheer beauty, incredible art, unfathomable food, and amazing people, it is a feeling you can't find anywhere else in the world like it.

Can you even question why Paris is called the "City of Love?"

Another list topper for US getaways for Honeymoons and Weddings are the multiple islands of Hawaii.
