One of our most luxurious anniversary trip ideas
Many Historic Hotels of America members offer up fine golf resorts, but none add the same kind of romantic twist as Tubac Golf Resort and Spa in Tubac, Arizona. Nestled on the 500-acre Otero Ranch in Santa Cruz River Valley, this Spanish Colonial resort boasts up 225 years of history, including one of Hollywood’s very own love stories – the romantic golf-themed movie "Tin Cup." Starring Kevin Costner and Rene Russo, Tubac’s own links deliver some of the movie’s charming settings.
For equally spirited romance, hit up this 27-hole championship course, considered to be the “Jewel of Southern Arizona Golf Courses.” Course architect Robert ‘Red’ Lawrence designed the first 18 holes in 1959, with local architect Ken Kavanaugh, weaving in another nine holes in 2006 to create Tubac’s now-famous course of bent grass greens and Bermuda fairways.
One of our most savory anniversary trip ideas
A romantic adventure in organic gardening, culinary enthusiasts can retreat to Airlie in Warrenton, Virginia, where delightful cooking classes and organic garden tours make for a filling weekend getaway, second honeymoon or anniversary celebration.
Set on 1,200 pristine acres of rolling hills near the Shenandoah foothills, guests can tour the resort’s four-acre garden and sophisticated green house, which supplies Airlie’s kitchens with farm-to-table goodness year-round. The gardens are also home to an apiary of bees that provide honey for its kitchen, pollination for its crops and vital research for Piedmont bee populations, making this one of our sweetest anniversary trip ideas yet.
