Looking to fire up the romance in your relationship? Book a getaway at one of the nation's best romantic getaways right in the Capital Region's backyard.

Is there anything more romantic than heading to a winter destination with that special someone to get cozy by the fire for a weekend getaway? Not really, and we have so many great winter destinations to keep the romance going throughout the season.

Three of those winter getaway destinations around the Capital Region in Upstate New York and in Massachusetts have been recognized by Trips To Discover among the 17 best in the United States for a romantic trip!

The Berkshire's - Massachusetts

The Berkshire's are stunning any time of the year, and Trips to Discover says the region is extra special in winter because the mountains are "...a quintessential New England wintry escape with its open roads, small towns, and classic red barns blanketed with sparkling white snow."

Lake George

Lake George is great in the summer, and just as fun, and well romantic in the winter! Trips to Discover says all the great local lodges, winter activities, and the splendor of the snow-covered Adirondack Mountains make Lake George on the country's most romantic winter getaways.

Lake Placid

Again, the Adirondack range, a pristine lake, and a wealth of outdoor winter activities make Lake Placid another super romantic local getaway. Trips To Discover says the Mirror Lake Inn Resort & Spa is a must-visit for one of their "...romantic escape packages that include a candlelit dinner, champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries...and more."
