There’s plenty of romantic hot spots in Palm Springs that are the perfect backdrop for a romantic proposal, but bundle up with your bae and head to the sky with the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. Whether you propose during the ride as you sail over tree tops or wait until you’re ankle deep in snow at the summit, the views will make for a magic moment when you finally get on one knee and ask the big question.

Not a fan of heights? Try a proposal a little more in tune with the Earth. While Joshua Tree National Park is only open until 5 p.m., in winter that’s more than enough time to take your intended to enjoy the sunset and a little stargazing. A proposal when the sky is a deep purple and the stars are just starting to glisten couldn’t be more romantic.

After dinner wander over to Brandini Toffee, a local favorite, where you can share a creamy, vanilla toffee milkshake like lovers in a ‘50s diner. Blended with their gourmet toffee—that even Oprah claims as one of her favorites—it’s a sweet way to top off dinner. Even better, grab your shake to go and walk the downtown Palm Springs area basking in the glow of your renewed romance.

To toast to the start of your new life together, head to the top floor of The Rowan Palm Springs and head to the bar at 4 Saints. The views are gorgeous and the decor Insta-worthy, but the innovative drinks here will have you celebrating well into the night. Clink with one of their specialty house cocktails, aromatized wines or go for a glamorous classic, the G.H. Mumm Champagne.

Sure, you could call it a night and head home, or you could hop in an Uber and head to Korakia Pensione, where you can celebrate alone and in one of the most romantic properties in the desert. With Moroccan-style pools, candle-lit hallways, and turndown service options that include strawberries, Champagne and rose petals, the New York Times named it one of the sexiest hotels in America. Sounds like the perfect place to end the perfect proposal.
