Murphys, California is located close to popular Northern California cities and attractions. One of America’s best small towns, Murphys is the ideal place to spend a quiet romantic getaway with your special someone. You’ll experience invigorating mountain air and valley views in California’s Gold Country. Here’s how to spend your romantic getaway to Murphys.

Stay at a romantic bed and breakfast

Murphys, and the surrounding Calaveras County, is home to several quaint bed and breakfasts for your romantic getaway. These bed and breakfasts offer unique rooms and a delicious breakfast every morning. Courtwood Inn sits on a 5-acre hilltop and offers five bedrooms all with amazing views. Some include spa or romance packages or in room extras, like flowers or chocolate covered strawberries, to make your stay extra special. Nothing is more romantic than a private, secluded stay in a unique bed and breakfast.

Have a picnic

The Murphys area offers beautiful state parks to explore then relax in afterwards with a picnic. Calaveras Big Trees State Park is in the middle of the Sierra Nevada foothills and has two groves of protected sequoia trees. The Murphys Community Park is close to other Murphys attractions and has a romantic gazebo in the center of the park. Stop by a local food market to pick up your picnic fare and lay out a blanket for a romantic afternoon.

Enjoy an afternoon on the water

There’s nothing more romantic than bonding with your significant other through outdoor recreation. You can rent a boat or jet skis on Lake Melones to cool off on the water for a day. You can also try your luck at stand up paddle-boarding or hydrobiking. Take a white water rafting trip on the class IV rapids of the Stanislaus River. The 65 mile river offers serene relaxation for canoeing or adventure filled rapids for rafting.

Go wine tasting

There are over 20 wineries and vineyards in the Murphys area to choose from. Indian Rock Vineyards farms its own grapes on its 70 acre vineyard including a historic tasting room and spring fed lake. The peaceful surroundings are perfect for a relaxing wine tour. Lavender Ridge Vineyards is full of beautiful lavender plants and they have a tasting room in downtown Murphys.

Murphys, California is a beautiful place to spend a romantic getaway. It’s a unique alternative to staying in San Francisco or near Yosemite National Park.
