Time is Better Spent Together

Couples travel from all over the world to experience the magic of Vermont

You’re here (or on your way) and you’re looking for a few romantic ideas on how to spend your time together...

Look no further, we've assembled suggestions from around the state on what makes for the perfect romantic outing.

Cozy Up in Your Room - Sometimes the most romantic thing is to do nothing at all. This is especially true when you're staying in one of Vermont's classic B&Bs. A little room service, a good book, perhaps a Jacuzzi or fireplace and nowhere to go.

Stroll through one of our many villages. There is no doubt that you and your partner will stumble upon something new, exciting or unique. Vermont's cozy independent movie theaters, small, intimate restaurants and beautiful town centers are the perfect place to steal a kiss.

Inn to Inn Bike Tour - Vermont is the home of bike touring, and there's still no better place to slow down and two-wheel your way from cozy inn to cozy inn. (In winter, just trade your bikes for cross country skis)

Snowshoeing - You haven't experienced the beauty of winter until you've explored Vermont's snowy woodlands on snowshoes. Many Vermont inns will set you up with rentals, trail maps and a gourmet box lunch, complete with wine and delicious desserts.

Sleigh Ride - You've seen it on postcards and in the movies. Nothing matches the pure romance of a horse-drawn sleigh ride, especially under a full moon. Ask your innkeeper for local sleigh rides.

Vermont Symphony Orchestra Concert - A clear summer evening. The sun setting over the Green Mountains. A picnic basket packed with fresh cheese, wine and hors d'oeuvres. And the strains of Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms rising on the breeze. It's the quintessential summer evening's entertainment. Check our events calendar for listings.

Cruise Lake Champlain - Contrary to common perception, Vermont is home to big water offering gorgeous views. The Spirit of Ethan Allen tour boat features delicious dining and dancing while you watch the sun set.

Visit a chocolate, ice cream or teddy bear factory - See how these favorite treats are made, and of course, be sure to pick up something to go.

Visit a spa - Romance and indulgence go hand in hand. Visit one of Vermont's many spas for a blissful day of relaxation.

Watch the Stars - Vermont's rural landscape makes it ideal for stargazing. Simply take an evening stroll down a quiet country lane and look up. If you're lucky, the Northern Lights might even put on a show for you.
