The website vacationidea.com came out with a really fun list of the 25 Best Last Minute Romantic Getaways and not only was I surprised to see Columbia, Missouri on the list but it came in at the number 3 spot! Now before I go any further I would just like to say personally I have been to Columbia a couple of times and have loved it every time, I think it is a fantastic town but I just never saw it as a romantic town. In the article they say...

"...Columbia, Missouri, is cultured, artsy and knows how to enjoy life. Start your visit by checking out the Francis Quadrangle with its historic columns... Visiting Rock Bridge Memorial State Park will give you an opportunity to hike, relax, or explore Missouri’s famous caves. Shelter Gardens is a delight for all senses, with diverse flower gardens where there is something blooming at all times."

They go on to say a lot more about Columbia, you can read the whole thing for yourself by clicking here!

I guess for me the reason why I haven't thought of Columbia as a romantic getaway spot is because every time that I go it is to catch a sporting event with friends. Now the list has some other great places on it like Jacksonville, Florida, Cincinnati, Ohio, Portland, Maine, and Houston, Texas as the biggest city on the list. So do you think of Columbia as a quick romantic getaway spot?

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
