Romantic Getaway #4

In the morning, the two of you can sip coffee while you take in a beautiful early morning view of one of the expansive private lakes.
Romantic Getaway #5
You’ll feel like you’ve taken a step back in time the moment you lay eyes on historic Caledonia. Most of the buildings here have remained unchanged since the 1900’s. You could book a stay at “The Old Brick House” B&B, which is right in the hub of downtown Caledonia. Antique shopping and hand-dipped ice cream are within walking distance, along with an amazing selection of gourmet fudge, cakes, and old time candies.
One Final Lover’s Tip:
No romantic Arcadia getaway guide would be complete if it failed to mention the breath-taking Mina Sauk Falls, the highest waterfall in Missouri. Local legend has it that an Indian maiden, called Mina-Sauk plummeted to her death from the top of the falls, to join her lover who had met the same fate at the hands of her people. Mina Sauk Falls is within a 30 minute drive of all Arcadia romantic getaways listed here.
