Perfect for any occasion, even those special nights, If dinner is part of the plan, this list has you covered. One of these spots may become a new favorite.
Travel + Leisure just profiled Rockford as the location of one of the Most Romantic Places in the U.S. I was fully expecting the list to feature someplace around Chicago, but it was a spot that wouldn't be traditionally thought of as a romantic spot.
Time for some year-round nature-loving romance at Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens. When the cold sets in, you can move inside the tropical vibes of the huge greenhouse.
The conservatory and gardens would make a great stop for after dinner. Just the walk along the Rock River alone is enough to make it a very memorable night.
The Steve Shannon Show asked for suggestions of places to start this romantic (or otherwise) date.
