Swamped by palms, mangrove wetlands and sand as white as sugar, the calm and breezy beaches of Florida offer you the most romantic sitting. If you are looking to spend a more recluse time on a not-so-crowded beach, Sanibel Island is an ideal place to stroll hand-in-hand with your sweetheart. Natural beauty is always free and you will find abundance of it at Delray Beach and surrounding cays. The crescent-shaped coastlines that trim the waves down to rounding white foam make for one spectacular view. There is also an array of beach houses for those who want to stay close enough to the waters.

The cobbled roads, ancient architecture and Spanish-era buildings lend a unique identity to this city. With a climate that remains pleasant throughout the year, St. Augustine is home to some of the craftiest architecture you will ever see. Romance and history go hand in hand as the old world charm of historic places evokes an altogether different sort of feelings among lovers. Go visit the oldest churches, castles, schools and museums to set a date with history. Memorial Presbyterian Church, located at Valencia Street, is more than 120 years old church which sets a vintage mood in motion. If antiquities interest you, pay a visit to Lightner Museum. An awe-inspiring architecture features a building standing atop an open palm courtyard. Accompanying it is a vaulted stone bridge straddling across a fishpond. Meander through the paved streets or take a ride in those traditional horse-drawn carriages to sightsee town. St. Augustine is also a wonderful town for walking around.

Apalachicola National Forest
