Napa Valley, California

Where: Start with lunch at Thomas Keller's acclaimed restaurant the French Laundry (landing a reservation will be an impressive gesture), but be patient and don't pop the question until you're on the sky tram at Sterling Vineyards in Calistoga. At 300 feet above vines, the view of the mountains is the perfect backdrop to your big moment.

Why: Napa is heaven for all foodies—the perfect destination for whetting love's appetite.

Where to stay: Book one of Calistoga Ranch's chic wooden cabins—we love the one-bedroom lodges with outdoor jacuzzis, where you can lay back under a starlit sky.
