When most people think of a romantic getaway in Washington, staying the night in a hotel and relaxing in a spa come to mind. Those are a few ideas, but there are so many other great opportunities to impress your sweetie all over the state.
Renting an RV and spending a weekend snuggled up together at one of the places on this list will leave you with romantic memories that will last a lifetime.
Admire the Tulips in La Conner
La Conner is a romantic place, no matter what time of year. It is a top weekend getaway spot among people of all ages because it features a charming waterfront that beckons you to go for a lazy afternoon stroll. There are plenty of romantic restaurants in the area and plenty of opportunities to buy your significant other a special trinket at one of the shops.
However, one of the best times to visit is in April during the tulip festival. The entire town is covered in these colorful flowers and with them comes plenty of things to do.
Get Cozy on the Spokane Falls Sky Ride
If you’ve never ridden the Sky Ride before, it’s a must-do. It lifts you up and over Spokane
Falls, the second largest urban falls in the U.S.
Because it’s right in Spokane, you can spend the rest of the weekend in the city doing things like:
• Walk along Riverfront Park
• Gaze at the flowers at Manito Park and Botanical Gardens
• Learn more about art and culture at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture
• Get close to the animals at the Cat Tales Zoological Park
• Ride the Riverfront Park Carousel
• Do a little gambling at the Northern Quest Resort & Casino
Gaze at the Sunset on the San Juan Islands
There’s just something romantic about a sunset, and they don’t get any better than the ones you can experience on the San Juan Islands.
In between gazing at the sunsets, explore miles of beaches and do a little whale watching. Kayaking, bicycling, and hiking are also great options if you plan on visiting the islands with your sweetie. If you visit during the warmer months of the year, you may want to check out some of the events that take place in the spring, summer, and fall.

Sip on Some Wine at the Cave B Inn & Winery
If sipping on a little wine is your idea of a great date night, make a stop over at the Cave B & Winery in Quincy. Just make sure you stop by Tendrils.
