This striking book features more than 200 photos of some of the most picture-perfect and romantic vacation spots. With smart travel tips for each of the 50 featured locations across the globe, it’s easy for newlyweds, love birds or those celebrating decades together to plan their next trip to a tropical, exotic or remote getaway thousands of miles away or perhaps right around the corner. From Italy, Hawaii or Charleston to the Caribbean, South Africa or New York City, there’s a perfect location for every adventure.

Each section of the book offers impeccable travel suggestions by season—a springtime getaway in Paris, a summer walk in Victoria Falls, an autumnal visit to Big Sur or a winter wonderland in Quebec City, and many more. Every destination is accompanied by tips on what not to miss, where to stay, best local cuisine and how to book the most relaxing or adventurous excursion.
