In the mood for love? Alexandria just ranked as the 12th alternative romantic destination in America by the travel blog Honeymoon Always.
Honeymoon Always conducted a survey of 3,000 people this month with the goal of finding out which “lesser-known” romantic destinations they want to visit in 2023. There are 175 cities listed in their results, and three cities in Virginia made the list — Alexandria at number 12, Fredericksburg at 54 and Hampton at 101.
“Maui, Napa Valley, New Orleans… America boasts an abundance of fabulous destinations for couples seeking romantic experiences,” Honeymoon Always said in a release. “While these well-known destinations continue to dominate the market, the quest for truly unique and unforgettable experiences leads couples to explore lesser-known, yet equally enchanting, romantic getaways.”
A list of the top “alternative” romantic cities is below.
- St. Augustine, Florida
- Paia, Hawaii
- Hilo, Hawaii
- Asheville, North Carolina
- Carmel-by-the-Sea, California
- Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
- Durham, North Carolina
- Mackinac Island, Michigan
- Flagstaff, Arizona
