1. London, Ontario, Canada

When people hear “London”, they automatically assume that it’s London, England.

However, London in Ontario, Canada is one of the most romantic places to be.

There are many attractions to visit and plenty of landmarks to enjoy.

One such attraction is the famous Victoria Park, a 7.3-hectare park we know for being one of the most famous tourist locations in London.

Moreover, if you appreciate historic landmarks, then the St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica should be on your to-do list as well.

2. Bruges, Belgium

If you’ve seen When In Bruges, then you know that this Belgian city looks like a medieval town out of a fairy tale. 

Its beautiful canals and cobbled streets make for excellent locations for photo ops.

Furthermore, you’ll find several canal tours offered in the city.

The sights that you see from said tours are as breathtaking as your partner.
