There are several annual occasions that call for a romantic getaway. Birthdays, anniversaries and, of course, Valentine’s Day are some of the occasions that come to mind. Still, there’s never really a bad time for a romantic camping getaway.
If you own an RV, you can enjoy the journey just as much as the destination. Depending on where you live in the U.S., we hope that at least one of these RV destinations for a romantic getaway is within reasonable driving distance!
Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston is a historic destination with plenty of attractions. From the picturesque plantations with trees covered in Spanish moss to the coastal beaches, there’s plenty to see and do in this romantic destination.
If you want to enjoy a day on the water, take your partner for a sailing trip up the wind-powered Schooner Pride. The Schooner Pride is an 84-foot-tall ship that glides through the water without the sounds (or smells) of a gas-powered engine. They offer several of tours, including sunset and moonlight sails.
The top-rated Good Sam RV parks near Charleston are Oak Plantation Campground and JThe Campground at James Island County Park. The Lake Aire RV Park and Campground in nearby Hollywood, South Carolina is another option just outside of the city that still offers quick and easy access to all that Charleston has to offer!
Staying in the south, it’s hard to beat the traditional southern architecture and historic attractions in Savannah. The oldest city in Georgia offers plenty of options for romantic strolls through Chippewa Square and catching sunsets from lush shores of Tybee Island, a beach getaway located just east of the city.
If you’re looking to learn more about why Savannah has unofficially been labeled “America’s Most Haunted City,” you should look into Ghosts and Gravestones. This highly-rated tour company offers visitors the opportunity to explore Savannah’s “darker side” aboard their acclaimed Trolley of the Doomed. You’ll pass by ancient cemeteries and learn the stories of some of the most macabre chapters in the city’s history.
The best Good Sam campgrounds near Savannah include Savannah Oaks RV Resort, Red Gate Campground and RV Park and CreekFire RV Resort. Still, within 20 miles of historic Savannah, you might also opt for the natural beauty and solitude of River’s End Campground on Tybee Island.
Napa Valley, California
It’s nearly impossible to beat Napa Valley as a romantic destination for an RV getaway, especially if you’re interested in sampling some of the best wines on the planet. And the icing on the cake is Napa’s incredible climate and beautiful landscapes.
One of the best ways to get an overview of all that Napa Valley has to offer is to book a tasting excursion with Platypus Wine Tours.

The landscape surrounding Tucson is representative of the extreme weather and climate that characterizes much of the American Southwest. Tucson boasts several landmarks that shed light into the often-turbulent development of the Western U.S. The town also basks in beautiful weather that’s ideal for outdoor exploration.

What’s possibly more romantic than a riverboat tour on the Tennessee River? That’s exactly what you’ll find in Knoxville, in addition to numerous festivals, gardens and theaters. And a visit to Knoxville is impossible without sampling some of the delicious Southern cuisine. Regardless of the activities you choose, love and romance are almost always in the air in Knoxville.
If you’re not sure where to start, the Knoxville Visitor Center is a great place to get more information on city attractions and add a couple souvenirs to your collection.
