Romantic birthday celebration ideas abound in venues throughout the United States. Science-savvy couples can enjoy a birthday celebration under the stars with a picnic dinner and a telescope, while sport enthusiast couples may enjoy a day of navigating their way through a high ropes adventure course. Romantic birthdays can be simple, with an at-home private dinner for two, or elaborate, with a birthday gala at a New York City ballroom.

Front Range Climbing Company

For the more adventurous, couples can arrange for fun birthday celebration with a day of guided rock climbing in Colorado, with the Front Range Climbing Company. Guided trips are offered all year round, with ice climbing in the winter and rock climbing throughout the warmer months. Climbing destinations include the Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon, Boulder Canyon and the Golden Cliffs. For the inexperienced, Front Range offers a variety of classes and two and a half hour introductory trips at the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center. For the more experienced climbers, the company offers a six-hour Touching the Void program that allows participants to customize their guided trip according to their preferences.

Royal Caribbean International

Couples can commemorate a birthday with a romantic three-day cruise on board the Majesty of the Seas cruise ship, with the Royal Caribbean International cruise line. The cruise departs from Miami, Florida and travels to CocoCay and Nassau in the Bahamas before returning to Miami on the final morning. On board the ship, couples can spend an evening gambling at the Casino Royale, enjoy spa services and have dinner at the '50s-style Johnny Rockets restaurant. Throughout the cruise, couples can arrange for a variety of shore excursions, including a nature walk in CoCoCay, glass-bottom boat tours, an afternoon at Blackbeard's Cay Beach and a snorkeling or scuba diving tour.

Royal Palms Resort and Spa

Indulge in a romantic day of pampering at a hotel spa and spend the night in a luxurious guest suite. The Alvadora Spa in the Royal Palms Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona offers an extensive service menu and package experiences. The Mediterranean spa experience lasts for four hours and includes a Mediterranean Wrapture, manicure, pedicure and an intimate lunch.
