Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward: Westport, Conn.
If there was a man more gorgeous than Paul Newman in his prime, you would have to shield your eyes to look at him. Newman's second marriage was one for the ages — when he died in 2008, he had been married to Joanne Woodward for 50 years. The pair met in a Broadway production of "Picnic" in 1953, and spent a low-key, happy life together in Westport, Conn.
Find your own romance: Visit the Westport County Playhouse, built in the 1830s as a tannery, and where Woodward served as artistic director from 2000 to 2005. Westport is home to numerous spas, and there's always nearby Marvin Beach for a seaside stroll. A Sunday drive along Long Island Sound, touring lighthouses (including Five Mile Point Light, pictured) and covered bridges, is not a bad idea either.

Tooltip Information:Why Do These Women Stretch Their Necks?Video by:Description: Starting at an early age, women of the Padaung tribe wear a coil of brass rings around their necks.

In their native Myanmar, Padaung people often faced persecution over these visible tribal symbols. Now, having relocated to a Thailand refugee camp, these Padaung women continue this centuries-old custom, memorializing the struggles of the past and maintaining a link to their tribe's history.Rating: 4Views: 917
