Of course, if it’s not something you do right after high school or college, real life tends to get in the way.

And with every part of North America having plenty of spots for sweethearts to stay, your possibilities are endless.
Here are just eight of the many possibilities for enjoying a long weekend of love:
While it may not seem like winter and driving are a good combination, the fact is, some of the most scenic and beautiful drives are best taken during the snowy season. As long as the weather outside isn’t too frightful, you’re used to winter driving conditions and your hybrid car rental contains all the necessary emergency supplies, you shouldn’t be afraid to embark on one of America’s best winter road trips.
