4 Favorite Things to Do on a Couples Getaway
Is there a right time for a romantic getaway? In Southern Utah, the answer is a resounding no. As a true four-season destination, Southern Utah offers something amazing for every season – and for every pair of lovebirds. No matter your relationship style – if you’re adventurers, foodies, sloths or sightseers – you’ll find the perfect place to reconnect as a couple anytime you visit the area.
Because there’s never a bad time for love and romance, here are our top activities for every season on a couple’s getaway to Southern Utah.
You’ll have no trouble rekindling the flames with our brand of winter fun. At Brian Head Ski Resort, you can get your hearts racing as you shred the slopes on skis or snowboards, enjoy some Nordic exploration, or try your hands (and bottoms) at snowtubing. And when your fingers are frozen, you can cuddle close together over a cup of hot cocoa or a handcrafted cocktail. With more than 650 acres of terrain and two full lodge facilities, you can spend an entire trip enjoying “the greatest snow on Earth”.
You’ll also find your perfect winter retreat in our Ski in/Ski out rentals. A cozy one-bedroom condo at Chalet Village will put you directly across from the main resort lifts while providing a warm space to relax in front of your wood-burning fireplace.
Spring is one of the best times of year for outdoor exploration. The temperatures are mild, flowers are blooming, and summer crowds are still on the horizon. From the local trails to our iconic state and national parks, there are so many great places to hike with your honey. And as a couple, exploring during the season of growth can foster growth in your own relationship as you blaze the trails together.
Romance is sure to bloom in Village Vibes, a charming one-bedroom cabin in the quiet Duck Creek Village. You’ll have plenty of privacy on your large, wooded lot, and you’ll enjoy having easy access to the vibrant trails around this mountain gem.
Summer is the time to put stars in your eyes – literally. Bryce Canyon National Park’s summer astronomy programs are a can’t-miss experience for couples who want an otherworldly vacation. A designated International Dark Sky Park, Bryce Canyon offers a stunning view of the night sky complete with twinkling stars, faraway planets, and a bright band of the Milky Way Galaxy. Around 10 p.m. on summer weekends, the park’s expert rangers lead visitors on an extraterrestrial journey as they point out constellations and shed light on local astronomy. Be sure to bring a blanket and leave your phones behind for this romantic adventure.
When you come back to Earth, relax and unwind in our cozy guesthouse Under The Rim. Just fifteen minutes from the park, this getaway property features stunning canyon views to keep you floating on cloud 9.
Love and leaves fill the fall air in Southern Utah. A scenic drive down Utah’s Patchwork Parkway (also known as Scenic Byway 143) is just the thing to put your relationship back on the map. The route winds through some of the area’s best fall scenes as it runs from Parowan to the heart of Panguitch City. Along the way, you’ll journey through historic pioneer communities and steep mountain passes; skirt ancient lava fields and lush aspen forests; and gaze over alpine meadows and deep slot canyons. With your favorite playlist and your partner by your side, it’s sure to be an unforgettable journey.
At the end of your romantic road trip, relax and recharge in a picturesque lakefront cabin. The Bison at Panguitch Lake is the height of indulgent luxury, with floor-to-ceiling windows, an oversized stone fireplace, and a private outdoor hot tub.
