The Most Romantic Weekend Getaway in Iowa

In the Hawkeye State, enjoy some one-on-one time with your special someone in Decorah.

Thrilllist recommends booking a room at the Hotel Winneshiek and checking out activities with a day at Malanaphy Springs and Phelps Park.

And while you're enjoying the great outdoors, why not grab a cup of hot chocolate and strap on a pair of ice skates at the Wayside Skating Rink?

The Most Romantic Weekend Getaway in South Dakota


In South Dakota, it doesn't get much more romantic than Spearfish Canyon.

Thrilllist actually touts this Black Hills spot as 'older than the Grand Canyon, and, most importantly, less populated with screaming children'.

They recommend hitting the outdoors on snowmobiles or cross-country skis and working in a visit to Roughlock Falls on Highway 222.
