If you’re like me, you roll your eyes at the thought of Valentine’s Day. Love letters, a box of chocolates, a dozen roses – so cliché, right?! Most people get caught up in this holiday, and that’s completely fine. But I think it’s important to shower your significant other with love every day of the year, not just on February 14. I dare you to break free from the norm. How about a couple’s vacation? Time spent and memories made are much more meaningful than chocolate and flowers (in my opinion). Here are some top spots to consider when planning your Valentine’s vacation.
Cozy up at one of the nearly 30 bed and breakfasts available in Savannah, Georgia this Valentine’s Day. You will experience true southern hospitality, historic charm, and relaxation. When you are ready to hit the town, you won’t be disappointed with your options. Savannah’s National Historic District is the largest historically preserved area in the United States. Shopping, tastings, art museums, and haunted ghost tours are just a handful of ideas to light a spark between you and your valentine.
When I think “all-inclusive” my mind automatically drifts to Mexico – and for good reason. Mexico is home to many (I could try to guess the exact number, but I’m sure I’d be wrong) all-inclusive resorts to fit any budget or vacation style. It’s an ideal location for a romantic couple’s getaway because you can do as much as you want or as little as you want. If you want to lounge in bed all day ordering room service, that’s perfect. If you want to leave the resort grounds and explore the surrounding towns, more power to you. Regardless, you will enjoy quality time with your significant other (and get an awesome tan!).
I know what you’re thinking. “You want me to go to Wyoming for Valentine’s Day?” Well, yes. It may not seem like the most romantic destination for you and your valentine, but keep an open mind. No matter what part of the state you are interested in, beautiful scenery waits. Cut yourself off from the rest of the world for a few days and escape in nature. Cabins, dude ranches, and resorts offer amenities to please those seeking a “roughing it” experience or those who seek luxury. Whether you hit the slopes or the spa, you’ll leave your Valentine’s vacation feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Valentine’s Day and wine – it just makes sense! Napa Valley consists of nine towns, making your vacation options just about endless. If you prefer city living, stay close to town. If you want the whole vineyard experience, try a private estate. No matter what you prefer, you’ll get your fill of romance and entertainment (and wine, of course). For those who seek the ultimate Valentine’s vacation, eat and drink your way around Napa Valley! (Is there really any other way to do it?!)
Hopefully these destinations provide you with some good ideas if you’re looking to celebrate Valentine’s Day a little differently this year. No matter what you choose, have the best time on your Valentine’s vacation!
