5 – Visit Sun Valley or Stanley
There are few places in the country (or world)! that compare to Sun Valley, one of my favorite places in Idaho. If you are searching for an indulgent getaway and don’t mind the higher price tags on lodging and dining, Sun Valley is the ideal lover’s retreat. Stay at the legendary Sun Valley Lodge and experience world-class dining and spa services under the same roof. Sun Valley is most known for its access to the outdoors and has one of the world’s best ski areas – Bald Mountain. In addition to downhill skiing, you can also find excellent cross-country skiing, snowshoe trails, ice skating, and some of the most scenic (and romantic) sleigh rides. Here are more great things to do in Sun Valley in the winter.
Sun Valley is equally as amazing in the summer as well, so it doesn’t really matter what time of year you visit. The Ketchum and Sun Valley nightlife, restaurant scene, and apres-ski scene is also perfect for one of the best romantic getaways in Idaho. Keep an eye out for celebrities – there are quite a few who visit and live here!
If you want even more secluded outdoor adventures, head over to Stanley, Idaho where you can go horseback riding, hiking, hot spring soaking, or do a river float.
