Valentines Day has come and gone. We can all go back to romance being dead now, right?

Not so fast. You might have gotten drunk. Plus the sex was on fire, the food was good, and… maybe you said some stuff. Whoa, are you about to propose? Seriously? Are you ready for that step when you’ve killed every succulent and cactus that ever dared enter your apartment?

We asked CheapTickets to tell us where people go (in the US and outlying territories) to pop the question and here’s what they came back with:

10. Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston is one of the most romantic cities in America. With it’s beautiful, historic homes and cobblestone streets, it’s the perfect nostalgia-filled place to take the leap.

9. Sunset at Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur

This state park in Monterrey County, California is a prime spot to finally stop dragging your feet (through the sand). It’s picturesque and full of hiking trails. Step off one with a view and finally ask.

8. Puerto Rico

This Caribbean island is full of beaches and beautiful sights. After an evening walking around Old San Juan, surprise your loved one by getting down on one knee.

7. Vermont

Vermont is a mecca for skiing and outdoor activities in the winter. After a day of snowshoeing, grab a hot chocolate and ask in front of a roaring fire.

6. Key West, Florida

The southernmost city in the US is the home of Ernest Hemingway and beautiful, pastel shacks. Go snorkeling and then make your big ask while you watch the sunset over the ocean.

5. Forsythe Park in Savannah, Georgia

This 30-acre park is the largest park in the historic city. If you can’t get your partner to say yes in front of the beautiful, Parisian-style fountain, they won’t say yes anywhere.

4. Rocky Mountain National Park

If you’re the adventurous types, take a trip to Colorado and visit the Rocky Mountain National Park. Go for a long hike up Long’s Peak and propose while looking out across one of the best views in the country.

3. Napa Valley

The northern California-area is full to the brim with amazing wineries. After a day of getting buzzed, pop a cork before popping the question while you gaze out at a sprawling vineyard.

2. The Butterfly Conservatory at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC

Nature fans should flock to the Butterfly conservatory to watch butterflies slowly landing on things. After you’ve watched enough butterflies, finally ask if they want to grow old with you. Get it? Butterflies/delicate/impermanence/LOVE.

1. Kennebunkport, Maine

Maine in the summer is a beach-goers dream. One of the best places in Kennebunkport with its shops, whale watching and relaxing on the beach. Watch the sunset on Goose Rocks Beach and then stop stalling already and do the thing.
