Best Places To Kiss

Romance is alive and well (as you very well know) in the Northwest and this handy little guide will take you on a lovefest through the city. The Best Places to Kiss in the Northwest by Kate Chynoweth is the 9th edition of this lover's travel guide. Covering Washington and Oregon, Chynoweth takes you on an insiders guide to the region’s most romantic inns, resorts, B&Bs, and hotels, with detailed information on privacy, amenities, views, and décor. Restaurant reviews advise readers what to order and where to sit for the ultimate in dining romance. A "Romantic Highlights" section for each destination has insider information on the best sunsets, beaches, scenic drives, shopping, fireside snuggling, and outdoor activities. Sometimes even love can use a little inspiration, don't you agree? And who said date-night has to disappear just because you got engaged? We certainly didn't.
