Five Great Places to Propose

Valentine's Day is coming up, and Patch makes it ridiculously easy to find the best place to pop the question.

Do you have a burning question to ask? What's that? All you're missing is the perfect place to do it?

Consider our list and feel free to add your own suggestions to ours!

1. , Bushkill Township

You'll find whatever you're looking for here: water, extremely romantic scenery and historic buildings are all included. The Bushkill Creek is accessible from several spots along the trails. The homes offer a quaint outdoorsy backdrop, too, as the two of you look to your future.

2. , Bethlehem

One of the best features of this Bethlehem park is the pavillion that juts out over the Monocacy Creek. You can watch the ducks and lose yourselves in the sound of the water as it rushes over the falls.

3. , Hellertown

This lovely triangle deep in the heart of beautiful downtown Hellertown has a fountain that adds to the mood. It's also a great place to make a wish. The clock tower can provide confirmation of the exact hour of your proposal -- if you remember to look at it! There is also a music component to the tower. "Moon River" is among its repertoire.

4. , South Whitehall

Inspired by history and tradition, this is a place you can start some of your own. With a backdrop of two bridges -- Guth and Wehr's -- there's hardly a prettier place around. Very romantic.

5. , Lower Macungie

This gets Lower Macungie Editor Mariella Savidge's vote for the most romantic place in the Lower Macungie Patch. Go when the bluebells (grape hyacinth) are in bloom -- mid-April-ish -- for the best color. There's also a stone shell of a building on the grounds that looks like an open-air chapel. Extremely inspiring.
