Many public parks, state parks and scenic areas have lovely spots away from the crowds where you can enjoy each other. We love romantic picnics near a lake, river or waterfall.

Your romantic picnic can begin as a spontaneous part of a romantic vacation. Or, if you only have an hour or two for a lovers' interlude don't pass up the opportunity. Pick up some food at a market or restaurant and head for a nearby park.

Romantic Picnic Ideas Galore!

It's fun to be spontaneous; it's also very romantic to plan a romantic picnic in detail and make it an "all day affair." Here is a list of suggestions for items to include in preparing for a day of intimacy in the beautiful outdoors.

  • Bring a blanket to spread on the ground. We keep a colorful blanket that we purchased in Mexico in the trunk of our car so we are always ready for a last minute picnic.
  • Take along a portable CD player and some favorite romantic CDs. Have you heard the quote that "music is the food of love?" It's true. The right romantic music can add much to the romantic atmosphere.
  • Bring along a cooler filled with special treats.  Cheese, bread, wine and chocolate covered strawberries are traditional romantic foods to share. Choose those if you like them and add whatever else you both enjoy.
