Best Place to Smooch Outdoors

Mount Bonnell

Towering more than 700 feet above the city, Mount Bonnell was selected by our readers for its breathtaking views ... which may have something to do with it also being chosen "Best Place to Smooch Outdoors." Hike with your sweetie up the park’s 102 steps to enjoy the 360-degree vista. Marvel at the urban landmarks visible from this vantage point. "Honey! That’s the 360 bridge!" "But look, my darling! It’s our lovely metropolitan skyline!" Aw heck, who are we kidding? You’ll be too busy gazing into one another’s eyes to notice.
