'The Notebook' (2004)

VACATION DESTINATION: Seabrook Island, So. Carolina

There's no romance like a summer romance: those three intense months together can feel like a lifetime. And for a lucky few -- like teenage sweethearts Noah (Ryan Gosling) and Allie (Rachel McAdams) -- that's exactly what it becomes. Sawmill worker Noah propositions vacationing rich girl Allie at a carnival in 1940, by climbing a ferris wheel and dangling from the bars until she says yes. Their idyllic summer, spent in swimming holes, ice cream parlors and country roads, gives way to separate lives as Allie's parents force them apart and WWII descends. But Noah never gives up on his first true love, even when she becomes engaged to another man. And into their twilight years, as she battles dementia, the memory of that perfect summer remains the key to her heart.
