You’ve found your person, you bought the ring, now you’re just waiting for the right time…and place. Finding the right location to pop the question can be a daunting task. This will be a story told for years to come, so you have to find the perfect spot.
Luckily, Henry County is full of scenic and unique locations to pop the question. So plan a romantic getaway and don’t forget to pack the ring! Pick any of these spots and you’re sure to create a memory you will never forget.
Kneel Down in Nature
Henry County is known for its beautiful, natural scenery. If your significant other is into the outdoors, there are plenty of places to take a knee and ask the question.
Panola Mountain State Park is a great location any time of day, but a Sunset Mountain Hike will make for a proposal that will leave your future spouse speechless. Call the park ahead of time and schedule a private hike. Make your way up the mountain until you reach the plateau. With the breathtaking fiery sky as your backdrop, ask the question you’ve been waiting for.
Speaking of hikes, another prime spot to propose is at Stockbridge’s Reeves Creek Trail. Take a walk through the paved trail surrounded by towering trees. The serenity of the area will make for an intimate experience.
Nothing quite screams romance like flowers. And what better place to ask someone to marry you than at the Tulip Festival at Yule Forest? Tulips are a classic flower loved by many for years, and they are known to mean “deep love.” So surround yourself with colorful tulips, take a knee, and start your life together!
That isn’t the only flower-filled destination that brings about feelings of love. Check out the zinnia patch at Southern Belle Farm. These adorable little flowers are the perfect backdrop for any romantic experience. Perhaps you can even schedule a photographer to capture the moment. Many will include an engagement session in the price of a wedding package.
Surprise in the Skies
Take your relationship to new heights by booking a ride in the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation’s helicopter “Huey,” a UH-1H flown by a veteran pilot. While your soon-to-be-fiancé gazes out over the horizon, take out the ring and surprise them from the sky. You can also book a private ride with South Atlanta Helicopters for a similar experience! Whichever you choose, it’ll be unforgettable.
Maybe flying isn’t your thing, and that’s okay. You can still take to the skies to pop the question in a unique way. When the Georgia State Fair comes to town, take your beau on a date to the midway. Enjoy some games and delicious fair food before you hop on the Ferris wheel. While in a car (bonus points if it’s during sunset) above the crowds, ask them to spend forever by your side.
If you’re still looking for a one-of-a-kind proposal experience, try one of the local selfie studios. The Selfie Experience in McDonough offers rentals of the entire studio so you can have fun with your partner alone. You can even book a photoshoot with the studio to capture the moment.
Love My Selfie, also in McDonough, has 42 rooms decorated with original art. There is an Instagrammable spot for every taste! Try one of the Valentine-themed rooms with red walls, a background of roses, a neon “I love you” sign, or romantic fireplace. The venue can even display the words “Marry Me” on the wall to make the experience even more special.
Eat & Engage
It may seem cliche, but you can’t go wrong with a romantic dinner. The perfect Henry County restaurant to ask someone to marry you would be Serafino’s Italian Restaurant. Enjoy upscale dining in an intimate and cozy setting with delicious culinary masterpieces. It will be hard to say no after a meal like that.
If dessert is more your style, have a custom cake created by one of the talented bakers at ELF’s Cakery or Crumbles. Spell out your love for your partner on a mouthwatering cookie cake. Or add a photo of you both and the words “marry me” on a fluffy cake. Yum!
