Catalina Island is a slice of heaven that lies off the coast of California. If you want to take things easy, you can purchase the Island Romance Package so you can fully focus on each other. The package includes a helicopter tour, picnic basket lunch, spa treatments, wine and cheese receptions, bicycles, and so much more. Relax and recharge with bae on this sweet island getaway.

Fredericksburg, Texas

Fredericksburg is the heart and soul of the wine region in Texas, and it's the best destination for a weekend retreat with bae. If you want to get active, consider hiking Enchanted Rock and having a picnic at the peak. If you want to keep things on the chill side, you can visit some wineries and markets in town. Fredericksburg has German heritage, so you'll be able to check out some traditional events if you arrive in the fall.

Let's just say you'll never want to leave the room, and will be swooning over the #views. Order room service, drink some champagne, and soak up your time with bae.

Jackson Hole is the perfect weekend destination for the couple that loves the great outdoors. You'll be able to enjoy the fresh air as the aspen trees begin to change colors. You can also rent a private boat and experience the serene lakes. If you arrive before Oct. 7, you'll still have time to witness the breathtaking mountain views via the Aerial Tram.

New York City

Imagine strolling through Central Park hand-in-hand with the love of your life. It's definitely the best time of year to visit The Big Apple, in my personal opinion.

Head on over to the Brooklyn Brewery to sip some of your favorite ales and other seasonal brews. Stroll through the Brooklyn Botanical Garden where you'll be surrounded by red, orange, and yellow foliage. You can even spend one day apple picking or wine tasting in Hudson Valley. This trip will definitely be one for the books.
