The only attraction here is usually between stalactites and stalagmites, but this was the perfect place for one couple to get hitched.

3. A coffeeshop wall

To turn Jo’s Coffee into a romantic photo opt, all it took was a little spray paint.

4. Truck beds

Great for 2×4s and canoodling.

5. A Fan Boat

Sometimes romance just needs the deafening roar of a rotating blade to bring two people together.

6. Airports

If you’re meeting someone, then the sound of Marvin Gaye actually drowns out the noise of people complaining.

7. Barns

Thank you, haylofts. You gave us the phrase “rolling in the hay” and countless farm babies.

8. The rain

If you’re drenched and alone, it’s miserable. If you’re drenched and with someone, it’s a Nicholas Sparks novel.

9. Tire swings


These are a different kind of fun once you’re old enough to know how to kiss.

10. Staten Island Ferry

Consider this a romantic boat around the Statue of Liberty for two (if you’re not commuting).

11. The Front Porch

Scooch a little closer…closer… closer.

12. Rooftops

They protect apartments and—when tall enough—have a surprising amount of privacy.
