train-getawayTrains are a romantic adventure, but they aren’t the first thought that comes to mind for most people looking for a romantic date. Why not? What’s more romantic that speeding through the most beautiful parts of California, eating an amazing dinner with the person you care most for?

Here are three reasons why train tours are the next romantic date you don’t know about yet.

The Destination

Take the Napa Valley Wine Train and you’ll find yourself headed to one of the most beautiful parts of the state, with a destination getaway. You can arrange to stay in Napa Valley if you like, going wine tasting or just relaxing at one of the many boutique hotels you’ll find. It’s not a terribly long trip, but it does take through some sweeping views.

You Control the Experience

Many trains offer different packages so you control the experience you get. Expect to spend anywhere from about two to four hours in a train with your loved one, so it’s wise to consider upgrading to whatever luxury packages are available so you have plenty of space to move around and relax. If you opt for a more cozy atmosphere, make sure you bring some things from home (like nice smelling lotions or romantic music) to make the experience more personal.

The View

Of course, the most romantic of all is the view you’ll see speeding through the country side. There isn’t really an average length of route, as every route is different, but bring your camera and be prepared to snap some photos. During Christmas time, it’s extra special because you get the snow and the starlight shining through clear night skies.
