Yes, it’s that time of  year again, and as Valentine’s Day approaches, we are challenged with the task of finding new and interesting ways to celebrate the holiday with our special person.

Flowers and chocolates are expected. A beautiful heart-shaped pendant is adorable. But what about a gift that really shows your person how much you care? Why not literally sweep them off their feet and jet-set off on a romantic weekend to one of the following destinations? Take a relaxing trip or a thrilling adventure for Valantine’s and hit the holiday out of the park.

New York, New York

If you can’t find multiple things both you and your person want to do in the Big Apple, you’re clearly not trying very hard. Make it a classic NYC getaway by taking a horse-drawn carriage ride through central park, followed by a spin around the ice rink at Rockefeller Center. Later, grab an amazing bite in literally any neighborhood, but consider the Meatpacking District where you can go for a post-dinner walk along the High Line. Look into the Valentine’s package at the Hotel Gansevoort – just think chocolate, strawberries, champagne, and a late check-out time.

San Francisco, California

Okay, so chocolate and champagne are your thing? PERFECT! Gourmet Walks presents a chocolate and champagne walking tour around SF of tastings and decadence that are right up your alley. Next, head over to the San Francisco Zoo’s “Woo at the Zoo” to learn about the fascinating mating rituals of some of the zoo’s inhabitants. Later on, consider heading to Campton Place Hotel for their “Lose Your Heart” package, promising wine tastings and romance.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Looking to get away without needing to really go that far? San Juan provides the destination with the added convenience. No passport necessary. Celebrate the holiday with a nice beach getaway and the Luminescent Love Package from the San Juan Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casinio with waterfront views, bubbly, massages, and a magical trip to the Bioluminescent Bay in Fajardo.
