6. Carmel, California
Inviting eateries, art galleries, quaint shops, and storybook cottages all characterize this picturesque seaside village. Carmel is among California’s most fantastic swaths of sand. Particularly if your wife loves art, Carmel has plenty to offer. From Steven Whyte’s Sculpture Studio and Gallery, to Dawson Cole Fine Art, the city has a wide variety of art galleries your wife will love!
The redwood-laden road to the Big Sur, Pebble Beach’s scenic seventeen-mile drive and wine tasting in the nearby Carmel are all great at heightening the romance factor. Take your wife to sip a glass of wine on Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch patio. Sit down for a delicious dinner at L’Auberge Carmel’s pleasant Aubergine restaurant.
There’s plenty of romantic places for accommodation to choose from, for any budget. And since Carmel is a gorgeous city right by the sea, there’s plenty of opportunities for sunset walks on the beach.
