The list also includes Charleston, South Carolina, No. 5, Big Sur, California, No. 8, and Aspen, Colorado, at No. 12.

"When planning a getaway with a significant other, it can be difficult to decide on the perfect vacation spot when there are so many to choose from," said Erin Shields, assistant managing editor for travel at U.S. News. "Whether it's a romantic vacation 'just because' or the perfect spot to spend time together post-nuptials, the U.S. News rankings give consumers a chance to narrow down destinations that will provide the most ideal trip for each couple in every way."

With the help of user votes and expert opinions, U.S. News considered ambiance, privacy and a destination's reputation, as well as the abundance of couple-friendly activities, in order to rank the most romantic retreats.
