Angela A's City Tips

  • When dining at an upscale restaurant, always plan on tipping 20% for the attentive service you will undoubtedly receive.
  • Stay hydrated! The heat and humidity can take a toll on even the most well thought-out romantic plans.
  • Make sure you leave time to simply wander the cobblestoned streets. The most popular areas are easily accessible on foot, and getting just a little lost is always a romantic adventure!

    Angela A Says:

    Bonaventure is a simply enchanting cemetery. 'How can a cemetery be romantic?' you ask. Well, stroll through these gorgeous grounds — with their 150 years of history, monuments, and final resting places here — and you will soon find out!
