Non-Beachy/Close to Home-ish Idea
Given our penchant for visiting France, it’s not hard to understand that our first pick is:
Quebéc City, Canada
Quebéc City is the closest place you will find to France in North America. Its the perfect opportunity to experience the french culture without having to fly to Europe! Now, how great is that?
Quebéc City envelopes you with its culture and history. Strolling the winding narrow streets with it’s stunning European architecture, you will be swept away to another time and place.
But, history and charm aren’t the only things that Quebéc City has to offer. You will find amazing cuisine. Fabulous entertainment. Interesting and friendly neighborhoods.
In short, this is a fun and vibrant city, that can be visited quite easily by residents of Canada and the United States.

It goes without saying, that, if you are on an anniversary vacation, you are going to want some place romantic and welcoming to stay. And, preferably, downtown where everything is happening.
Located in the heart of things, Auberge Saint-Antoine is the very definition of romantic, and should be at the top of your list when going over any list of anniversary trip ideas.
The Petit Champlain district is right outside your front door. Where you can get swept up in the hustle and bustle of it all. Be sure to check out the fortifications and museums, bistros and shops.
Auberge Saint Antoine is a a beautiful mix of contemporary modern and classicly styled decor. All rooms are extremely well-appointed and the baths include heated floors. Not everyday you can say that about your hotel.
Few places in the U.S. have held onto their cultural and historical roots like Savannah, Georgia. Here you will succumb to the charms of the antebellum south.
Imagine strollin’ arm and arm under the Spanish moss listen to the whispering breeze on a balmy evening with your significant other. Can romantic anniversary trip ideas get any better than this? Maybe, but this is a good one.
Take a horse drawn carriage ride. Soak up the 18th and 19th century architecture. Dine at Circa 1875 Gastropub, and enjoy “unpretentious French cuisine”.

Romantic is always the keyword when offering our readers anniversary trip ideas. And, when it comes to romantic, it is going to hard to beat…
I’m sure that if you were to look up romantic in the dictionary, the definition would include mention and a photo of the Hamilton-Turner Inn. Ok, maybe not.
But, once you visit you’ll understand why I am given to hyperbole here. This bed and breakfast is without peer, in our opinion. Situated as it is on Layfette Square, your home away from home is smack-dab in the middle of the historic district.
Even with all the things there are to do near by, you may decide that you would rather stay ensconced in your exquisite, lavish, and distinct room. And, with the superior breakfast to start the day and an evening reception held in the parlor serving quality wines served with tasty hors d’oeuvres, you just might seriously think about staying in.
Wild West Romance
As it turns out the third of our anniversary trip ideas is also on the North American continent. But, this time in the desert country of Arizona.
Sedona is a unique destination. It’s a cross between rugged and lavish. Somehow exotic while still being inviting.

You’ll find luxurious spas nestled in amongst the spires and redrock formations that make up this geological wonderland. There is no shortage of things to experience.
From the natural wonders to hedonistic spas. From art galleries lining every street to vineyards offering locally grown fine wines.
You’re going to wonder why you haven’t come before!
