Columbia, MO Ranked as the 3rd Best Last Minute Romantic Getaway
Columbia has been given the unique title of one of the best last-minute romantic getaways in the United States, we love Columbia, do you think it deserves this title?
The website vacationidea.com came out with a really fun list of the 25 Best Last Minute Romantic Getaways and not only was I surprised to see Columbia, Missouri on the list but it came in at the number 3 spot! Now before I go any further I would just like to say personally I have been to Columbia a couple of times and have loved it every time, I think it is a fantastic town but I just never saw it as a romantic town. In the article they say...
"...Columbia, Missouri, is cultured, artsy and knows how to enjoy life. Start your visit by checking out the Francis Quadrangle with its historic columns... Visiting Rock Bridge Memorial State Park will give you an opportunity to hike, relax, or explore Missouri’s famous caves. Shelter Gardens is a delight for all senses, with diverse flower gardens where there is something blooming at all times."
They go on to say a lot more about Columbia, you can read the whole thing for yourself by clicking here!
I guess for me the reason why I haven't thought of Columbia as a romantic getaway spot is because every time that I go it is to catch a sporting event with friends. Now the list has some other great places on it like Jacksonville, Florida, Cincinnati, Ohio, Portland, Maine, and Houston, Texas as the biggest city on the list. So do you think of Columbia as a quick romantic getaway spot?
