Roses are red, violets are blue, how about a romantic getaway for two?
This holiday, grab your chocolates, flowers and wine and head for the hills — with your significant other, of course! Valentine’s Day allows us to celebrate love and friendship, and what better way to do that than to share an experience with your special someone?
Whether you’re a heartbreaker or hopeless romantic, we’ve got you covered. The Drive the Nation team has compiled our picks for your romantic trip. Check out our 6 Romantic Valentine’s Day Getaways:
1. Abingdon, Virginia
They say “Virginia is for Lovers” and that’s what we think, too. If you’re seeking charm and seclusion, why not check out The Martha Hotel & Spa in Abingdon? The hotel itself dates back to 1832 and served as a Civil War era hospital and a women’s college. Now a luxury hotel, you’ll be able to enjoy the spa services while your other half takes a dip in the year-round saltwater pool.
2. San Antonio, Texas
It’s been said that Texas is basically it’s own country and we can’t argue there. While each city in the Lone Star state offers something special, San Antonio’s River Walk is especially unique. Not only is it a popular destination for couples, but it’s also the leading tourist attraction in the entire state. Open 365 days a year, the river walk is home to shops, restaurants and romantic hotels.
3. Sedona, Arizona
Surrounded by a red rock backdrop, couples can escape to Sedona for a relaxing retreat in the Southwest. Nature lovers love Sedona, Arizona, but the eclectic city offers a little something for everyone. Sedona’s vibrant culture celebrates arts, history and community. If you have the opportunity to extend your stay, be sure to check out the International Film Festival taking place Feb. 22 – March 2.
4. San Francisco, California
From Hollywood to the Redwood Forest, the Golden State offers visitors just about everything. Still unsure where to visit for Valentine’s Day? San Francisco might be just the place. Plus, what’s more romantic than cable cars and kisses on the Golden Gate Bridge? Check out the Nob Hill Inn, a quaint bed and breakfast in the heart of San Francisco. The inn was converted from a Victorian mansion that survived the fire of 1906.
5. Savannah, Georgia
Savannah’s charming culture attracts everyone from honeymooners to retirees, and it’s no wonder why. The vibrant city offers history, charm and great weather. For a romantic and historic slumber, book your Valentine’s stay at one of the city’s charming bed and breakfasts. Be sure to book a romantic carriage ride to see the famous sites.
6. New York, New York
Nothing says “I Love You” quite like a trip to the Big Apple. With numerous lodging options, a trip to New York can be fun on almost any budget. If you’re seeking to splurge a bit, why not book a room at the famous Waldorf Astoria on Park Avenue and then catch a Broadway Play.
