Valentine’s Day is all about romance and spending time with your significant other. If you are hoping to have a weekend getaway with your sweetheart, consider one of these ideas for a romantic getaway. Here are five ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day.
Visit a Big City
Do you live just a few hours away from a large city? Consider an exciting weekend getaway in the closest city to your hometown. Plan to visit the city and take in some sights and sounds. Go to a concert or show or visit a museum. Stay in a nice hotel and eat at a restaurant or two that you’ve never visited before. Enjoy the novelty of being in a city you don’t visit often with your sweetie.
Rent a Secluded Cabin
If the hustle and bustle of a big city are not your cup of tea, consider renting a secluded cabin for a romantic getaway. Do some Internet research to look for accommodations in your area. Look for a cabin that isn’t far from a town so you can have access to restaurants if you don’t want to cook your own food. You can also check national parks that are located in your area for cabins.
Plan a Getaway in Your Town
If going to a large city or even a secluded cabin is not possible, how about planning a getaway in your very own town? Rent a room in a local hotel and take your sweetie out. Getting away can simply mean just getting away from home. Visit a new restaurant in your town or plan to spend time exploring antique stores and specialty shops that you don’t take the time to visit at other times.
How about visiting local wineries for your Valentine’s Day weekend getaway? Check around your area for local wine trails to visit with your sweetheart. Some wineries may offer tours that include accommodations and transportation and on Valentine’s Day weekend, there may be special events like concerts, wine tastings, and other activities that will make the weekend even better.
Visit Historic Sites
You can combine a romantic getaway with history if you plan to spend your weekend visiting local historic sites. Choose some sites that are within driving distance if you don’t want to spend nights away from home. Plan an itinerary of visiting historic sites and local history museums so you can learn a little about the history of your area on this special weekend.
Your romantic weekend getaway for Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be to a specific place. Be creative and focus on spending time together with your sweetheart whether you go somewhere away from home or you stay close to your own neighborhood.
