Dolly Parton is moving! The country legend -- and godmother to none other than Miley Cyrus -- is putting her West Hollywood mansion on the market. The home served as her crash pad when she was in the area, though she currently spends most of her time in Nashville (and Dollywood, of course) with her beloved yet mysterious husband, Carl Thomas Dean.

But we know plenty of other couples who prefer the sprawl of Tokyo or the untamed jungles of Bolivia. What makes a destination romantic? Ambiance counts for at least half of the appeal—the other half comes from the chemistry born of your new locale. How To Take A Successful Vacation As A Couple
