Check out the best that nature has to offer with your boo!

If you and your significant other are athletic and crave a physical challenge, try a mountain for intense hiking or rock climbing. If you live in New York, the Adirondacks offer 46 peaks for hikers of all experience levels! Additionally, these beautiful mountains offer the perfect romantic setting to get cozy with your partner after a day outside. Relax by the fire, and be dazzled by the views at one of the area’s hotels, such as Lake Placid Lodge.
