Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to pop the question.

Where to Pop the Question
Maui, Hawaii: Considered one of the world’s most beautiful drives, the Road to Hana will let you and your loved one take in the scenery via guided tours and overnight stays.
Mackinac Island, Michigan: Located in Lake Huron, this secluded romantic island offers horse drawn carriages and bike rides around the island to view this northern US paradise.
Hershey, Pennsylvania: No romantic interlude is complete without chocolate so why not head to the chocolate capital of the United States and stay at the Hershey Hotel, where you can indulge in chocolate-inspired spa packages?
Sun Valley, Idaho: America’s first destination resort provides one of the oldest ski lifts in the United States for a proposal your loved one will never forget.
Lover’s Key, Florida: Located between Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Springs, Lover’s Key is a lovely little island that provides excellent sightseeing for wildlife and sea creatures. It has trails to hike and bike on and, of course, plenty of sunshine.
Niagara Falls, New York/Ontario: Nicknamed “the honeymoon capital of the world,” the falls are rich in history and scenery to boot. Geared toward romantic retreats, the hotel offers a full-service spa and packages that include breakfast in bed.
Washington, Virginia: The Inn at Little Washington provides a cozy lover’s getaway less than two hours’ drive from Washington, DC. Steeped in history, the hotel’s website explains that George Washington first surveyed the village area and named its streets back in 1749.
Ludlow, Vermont: Put some mystery and adventure into your romantic holiday! Okemo Mountain Resort is romance-central.
Montreal, Quebec: If a winter setting is more to your liking for romance, then be seduced by Montreal’s European charm without being jet-lagged by crossing the Atlantic.
Cupids, Newfoundland: If you’re all about names, then nothing’s better than proposing in a town called Cupids, in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada’s easternmost province. As part of the town’s 400th birthday celebration, the New World Theatre was built as a replica of Shakespeare’s Globe in London, and the site also hosts an adjacent B&B.
