Opt for one of these low-key hideaways less than an hour from a major air hub.


Little Torch Key, Florida
45 minutes from Key West

The petite, five-acre Little Palm Island boasts just 30 thatched-roof cottage suites, so luminaries like Scarlett Johansson and several past U.S. presidents have come here to escape the paparazzi. Relaxation is the unspoken theme: Cellphone use is prohibited, while hammock lounging (and sunset viewing) is highly encouraged. 


Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia
30 minutes from Atlanta


Deep within Chattahoochee Hill Country sits the sustainable, 1,000-acre rural community of Serenbe. Eco-conscious couples will appreciate the organic gardens and 80 percent green space. From cooking classes led by some of the South’s top chefs to a restored circa-1905 farmhouse inn that exudes romance, the slower pace and Southern hospitality ensure postnuptial serenity.


Middleburg, Virginia
60 minutes from Washington, D.C.

This horse town in Virginia’s wine country draws the D.C. suits as much as it does couples seeking a romantic weekend. Salamander Resort & Spa, opened August 2013, is the place to hole up, snuggle up and relax — or ride horses through the countryside before enjoying a picnic lunch and tasting at one of the nearby wineries.


Newport Beach, California
45 minutes from Los Angeles

An easy drive from LAX puts you in this swanky Orange County town, where 1930s-era canals with broad sidewalks separate seven islands. Pelican Hill, Newport Beach’s chicest spot, sits atop a canyon, so what it lacks in direct beach access it gains in photo-worthy Pacific sunset vistas.
