Nothing gets the heart pumping like exercise, but since you're not likely to schedule a trip to the gym on date night, how about taking a long, romantic walk?

I'm super optimistic about the weather in April, if you're in the South it's not too hot yet and the North is warming up. But if you need a map to get you and your paramour going in the right direction, here are some of the best.


Frommer's offers walking advice all around the world, but we like the San Francisco options (that is, since we're not planning a trip to Sicily anytime soon).

There are a lot of romantic walking around lake options in Minneapolis, and MapMyWalk also offers walk suggestions all over the globe. You can even look at them in 3D on Google maps!

TimeOut New York gives us creative options in all five boroughs of NYC where you can choose your type of walk from romantic to stalker. Choose wisely on date night.

You'd better walk now in Austin before the nights start heating up (breaking a sweat is not the goal here). Check out Travelmuse for some non-breathtaking options.

The Chic Ecologist gives you his five picks for the best Seattle walks. You can also learn about sustainable living -- bonus!

My new favorite find, Walking In LA, proves I don't have to become a car addict once we land in Los Angeles. Hooray!
