Choose a spot
Choose a romantic spot for your campsite and make reservations a few weeks in advance. Consider a site on an ocean or lake, in the mountains, or desert canyon.
Keep it short
Limit your trip to two days and one beautiful night to remember. Going too long without a shower, a comfy bed, and modern conveniences can dampen even the most romantic feelings.
Plan activities to do together during the day that you both enjoy, like hiking, mountain biking, sailing, skiing, horseback riding, or just walking on the beach.
Bring easy food
Bring a cooler full of picnic food and a bottle of wine, hot cocoa, or your favorite beverages -- and don't forget a decadent dessert.
Keep blankets handy to stay warm together. Before bed, zip two sleeping bags together so you can snuggle and spoon after your great outdoor adventures.
