     | Santa Barbara, CA

    A romantic boutique hotel for over a century thanks to its intimate cottages, world-class service and setting in the Montecito foothills, this is where Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh exchanged midnight wedding vows on the grounds, and John and Jackie Kennedy honeymooned in the cottage that now bears their name. And currently this is the area Meghan and Harry — and Oprah — choose to live.

    | Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

    Virgin Gorda is known for “The Baths,” huge granite rocks strewn around tropical sands — to get the same feel, you’d have to travel to the Seychelles, so think of all the money you’re saving!

     | Ketchikan, Alaska 

    At the southernmost entrance to Alaska’s iconic Inside Passage, Salmon Falls Resort is 90 minutes from Seattle.
