National parks can provide some of the most romantic experiences, so get extra cuddly with someone you love when you make a getaway or plan a national park honeymoon to these national park hotspots.
Sunrise Point at Bryce Canyon National Park
There’s something inherently romantic about watching the sun rise or set. Bryce Canyon National Park tours offer one of the best spots for viewing the sky as it changes throughout the day and offers some of the most amazing canyon views. From Sunrise Point, not only will you be able to watch stunning sunrises and sunsets, but you’ll also be able to spot many different geological features. Look for hoodoos, sand dunes, and vast greenery while snuggling with your lovebug.
Cowboy Ranch House at Bryce Canyon National Park
Step into the award-winning Cowboy Ranch House at Bryce Canyon Resort and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the Old West with a taste of Mexico. Food sourced from local farmers and ranchers and then flame-grilled to perfection will give you the feeling that you’re sitting around a romantic campfire for two.
Stargazing at Grand Canyon National Park
Of Grand Canyon National Park, the National Park Service once said, “Half the park is after dark.” In fact, in 2019, after three years of working to minimize the impact of more than 5,000 light fixtures, Grand Canyon National Park was awarded certification as an International Dark Sky Park, meaning the view of the night sky is phenomenal and incredibly romantic. You can study the stars with the naked eye or by telescope. Some Grand Canyon National Park tours offer guided stargazing, though you’re sure to get a stunning look at the stars from almost anywhere in the park without any help.
El Tovar at Grand Canyon National Park
Open year round, the El Tovar dining room at the majestic and historic El Tovar Hotel is as romantic as romantic gets. No expense was spared when construction began in 1901, and when the hotel opened in 1905, El Tovar was one of the great hotels of its era. Today, you can enjoy much of the same ambiance and luxury guests have enjoyed over the past century while dining on new and classically prepared dishes, breads, and desserts made in-house. Just be sure to book a reservation in advance—the popularity of an experience enjoyed at El Tovar makes it sometimes difficult to secure a table.
Angels Landing at Zion National Park
While the hike to Angels Landing can be strenuous and even perilous, the views of Zion Canyon offered at its highest point are considered some of the best in the national park. Zion National Park tours can get you from Las Vegas to Zion to start your hike. While you’ll need to exercise caution along the trail, the romantic Angels Landing view will be well worth it.
