You don't have to leave the U.S. to find a romantic adventure for Valentine's Day. Do you love dancing under the bright lights of a big city? How about picnicking in a breathtaking vineyard? Would you rather sip bubbles in a bubbling hot springs? Maybe a long stroll on a gorgeous beach? It’s all here. So, pack your bags, take your partner by the hand and embark on a romantic getaway you will always remember.
New York City
When New Yorkers want romance, they look into quiet corners, cobbled neighborhoods, and late-night bistros. Cocktails over candlelight, new cuisine, a celebrity sighting over a delicious brunch—these are the romantic pleasures of New York, the things to experience together and later reminisce over once you’re back home. Fun ideas include a tasting itinerary of the city's best restaurants, renting a bike and pedaling through the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, and exploring a weekend flea market in Chelsea. End the days in a room with a view!
Long days on the slopes lead to lazy nights under the stars. Even if you don't ski, Telluride, Vail, and Beaver Creek offer something for everyone. You can admire the mountains from a hot tub or watch the snow fall from a cozy lodge.
And what could be more romantic than soaking in hot springs while the snow falls around you?
The best of Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean culture combine to make New Orleans a unique experience. Eat oysters, wander through art galleries, and get lost in the historic streets. If you plan ahead, you can make your trip coincide with some of the city's famous festivals. Or you can simply walk around on Bourbon Street and embrace whatever celebration is happening when you arrive. Fun days, great restaurants, and live music- what could be better?
Romance is in the air from the moment you touch down in Maui. Food and drinks just taste better when served in paradise. Your worries back home will fade away as you watch the ocean waves during your stroll on the beach. Maui provides all a couple needs to decompress and connect.
