February may be the month of love, but North Carolina is the perfect place to find romance year-round. These unique experiences take romance to the next level.

A Bike Ride For Two
A bike ride is a romantic way to explore an unfamiliar city, especially if it’s in one of the most romantic towns in America.  

Bestselling romance author Nicholas Sparks sets many of his love stories in coastal North Carolina. The ‘A Ride to Remember Tour’ in Beaufort is inspired by the locations in “A Walk to Remember” and “The Choice.”

A Mountain Getaway
The idea of a mountain getaway conjures up images of cuddling by a fire. Why not up the romance by cuddling by a fire in a castle-like inn?

The Four-Star Inn at Biltmore estate oozes elegance like a fairytale come true. With 24-hour room service, a heated outdoor pool, and live music, this luxurious inn is the perfect place for pampering. 

A Sunset Or Sunrise
Carolina Beaches are perfect for romantic strolls, and there are three just minutes away from Wilmington. 

Stroll the ocean shore or the Wilmington riverwalk with your love. Charter a private sail from Wrightsville Beach or walk hand in hand down the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. 

A Romantic Dinner
Many North Carolina cities, including Raleigh, Charlotte, and Asheville, offer world-class romantic restaurants perfect for date night. But a few are truly memorable.

Mount Airy’s Old North State Winery offers The Chef’s table by appointment only. Each of the seven courses is made by Head Chef Chris Wishart and comes with a unique wine pairing. 

The plates he prepares are as beautiful as the three-and-a-half-hour dining experience!

Cheers to love!
