Romantic Travel Spots Off the Beaten Path

by Amy Plitt

Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island, Maine

Few things are more romantic than watching the sun rise with the person you love. Make the experience even more special by taking a ride to the top of Cadillac Mountain, situated within Maines Acadia National Park. The landmarks peak, which rises 1,530 feet above the ground, is purportedly the first place in the United States where you can see the sun ascend over the horizon. (The best times to see this are between April and October.) Arrive early to catch the breathtaking sight, and then take some time to explore the rest of your surroundings on the way back down the mountain. (Don't live near Maine? Try one of these other amazing park views.)
