6 Best Valentine’s Day Getaways
Valentine’s Day Getaways
Every day is a day to celebrate the love between you and your significant other. You don’t need a holiday to remind you to pick up those roses or to head out to a nice dinner. But, regardless, Valentine’s Day is that special – and official – day of love that only comes once each year. Sometimes it is fun to let yourself get consumed with the hype and make it memorable for your better half. Perhaps, you can look into Valentine’s Day getaways!
This year, in 2022, Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday. While some may cringe at the inconvenience that may bring, why not turn it into a weekend? Or, better yet – a long weekend? Make the holiday unforgettable with a Valentine’s Day getaway. Whether you are looking for romantic, sultry, or a combination of the two, there is a destination for that.
1. Stowe, Vermont
Why not run straight into the white stuff and get bundled up for a skiing adventure for the weekend? If you are looking for an escape to a winter wonderland, you can spend your days on the slopes, taking in the magnificent mountain views here. Then, spend your evenings warming up by the fire with a nice, romantic dinner, some alone-time in the hot tub, and even time at the spa.
Stowe, VT is the perfect setting for the perfect v-day.
2. Joshua Tree, California
If life keeps you busy, then it is important to take time to slow down and re-connect with the one you love. That’s something you can find in Joshua Tree. With breathtaking desert vistas and the opportunity to hike through the Joshua Tree National Park
Be sure to book a stay out near the park to get the quiet peace and off-grid feel that the area brings.
3. Florida Keys, Florida
If you are looking to get away from the cold for some mild, tropical weather, then look no further than the Florida Keys. The smell of the salty air, the swaying of palm trees, and the local shops can all make it a wonderful getaway. Go fishing, enjoy sunrise/sunset cruises, get in the water for snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding adventures, get a massage at a spa, or just sip a frozen rum runner by the water. You are sure to fall in love all over again here.
Here’s a tip – fly private and you can fly right into Key West!
4. New Orleans, Louisiana
If you are looking to spice things up a bit, head down to the bayou. While Valentine’s Day is a little early for Mardi Gras, you can still enjoy everything the city has to offer. Its rich history and lively nightlife make it the perfect combination of romance and lustful passion. The French Quarter is as historic as it is vibrant. But relaxing in a bistro or indulging in baked goods is the icing on the cake.
You will enjoy music, cajun eats, boutique shops, and so much more when you visit this area. And, don’t forget to head over to City Park for a leisurely stroll and a cruise in the paddlewheel after the sunsets. You are sure to leave with lifelong memories.
5. Paris, Texas
Making a whirlwind trip to the romantic icon Paris, France just doesn’t seem logical – or even enjoyable – when you only have a weekend. But, with a trip to Paris, Texas your lover can still tell everyone about spending Valentine’s Day in Paris. Besides, they have an Eiffel Tower, too – although it is only about 60ft tall and topped with a bright red cowboy hat.
You will find that romance is alive in Texas. This town has a lot of vintage shopping and dining in the historic downtown. Art galleries and boutique shops, also. Plus, you will find hiking and biking trails that are sure to please.
It is the perfect little getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to connect with each other.
6. Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
Formerly known as Hot Springs, Truth and Consequences (referred to as T and C by the locals) is the perfect place to take a dip in – you guessed it – natural hot springs. It’s a quaint, artsy town that has several different springs to enjoy in all different varieties. But it’s more than that. Here you will find art galleries, boutique shops, a vintage movie theater, and more. The downtown area of T and C is almost as enjoyable as a soak in the hot springs!
Choosing the Right Destination
The list of Valentine’s Day getaways can keep going and going, but it will do you no good if you don’t consider a few things first. For instance, what do you envision for your trip? Are you looking to escape the winter and enjoy a tropical beach weekend? Are you looking for outdoor adventures, such as skiing, kayaking, or hiking? Or maybe you have a little hideaway in mind, like a sleepy, cozy – yet, romantic – town in mind?
Take the time to decide on what you want your weekend to be about before you book your trip. And, since it is only a weekend and you want to make the most of it, consider someplace that’s not too far – that way you can spend more time at the destination and less time in the air.
Make it Special with a Private Jet Charter
Now that you have an idea of where you may be heading, you are beginning to imagine the joy, excitement, and anticipation on your lover’s face, aren’t you? Well, then it is important that you pay attention because there are two ways this can go. One, you can squash the lovely daydream by dealing with the unpleasantries with commercial air travel. Or, you can enhance the getaway by indulging your partner in a private jet charter.
Have you ever seen Pretty Woman? Remember that quick getaway for dinner and the opera? Exactly. Make your significant other feel like a princess or prince this Valentine’s Day. It is sure to go down in the record books.
