Most romantic: Kalaloch Lodge, Olympic

Why we love it: Long beach strolls, skies that veer from sun-splashed to stormy, and tempestuous waves—that’s right, Washington’s Kalaloch is like a college romance. Except here you can take a break from it all with a (legal) drink at the sweet main lodge. The rustic 1920s Bluff Cabins, where weathered fir abounds, hold heart-stopping views of the Pacific.

Don’t miss: If, for you, romance equals vampires, the Twilight package includes a map to nearby vampire-capital Forks and a special Twilight dessert. From $182;
