A lot of couples look for time to sneak in a quick getaway during Valentine’s Day. There are a lot of places that you can escape to, but what about some of the unexpected Valentine’s Day getaways?
You might want to look for those spots where you aren’t going to run into crowds of other people but you know you can still really enjoy yourself.
That’s what we’re going to highlight in this post. Some fun and cool destinations that might not typically be on your radar for Valentine’s Day.
Let’s get into it.
New York City
Let’s be honest, New York City is hardly an unexpected destination. But it’s not always near the top of places you might think about when it comes to Valentine’s Day. It’s often thought of as a summer or Christmastime spot.
Valentine’s Day is a great time to spend in the city. You can still enjoy romantic outdoor events like ice skating and hot drinks at Bryant Park and get a romantic dinner at one of the many restaurants nearby.
Vegas has a lot more to offer than casinos, especially for couples. With dozens of world-class hotels, you can find incredible amenities including spas that often couples massages and other relaxing treatments.
Plus, then there’s the nightlife. Spend time taking in high-quality Broadway-style shows, magic, music, and comedians — anything to your heart’s desire. Regardless of what you love to do, you can probably find it here.
Head to the Big Easy with your loved one and enjoy a laid back vacation that can focus on long walks through the French Quarter or Mississippi River, great meals, and nights of soft jazz.
The Sculpture Garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art is one spot you should absolutely check out. It’s the perfect spot for a nice romantic stroll, and get some of those couple shots on your Instagram.
Nothing says romance like snuggling up by a fire after a long day playing in the snow, right? Or maybe some time in a hot tub is more your speed. Well in a ski resort town like Beaver Creek you can do just that.
If you want a break from skiing, check out the Beaver Creek Village Experience. Here you can go shopping, have a spa date, and grab a nice dinner. There are also year-long events including various festivals and culinary weekends.
Wine and romance often go together, but the crowds around places like Napa Valley can be a lot this time of year. So, head north to Oregon’s Willamette Valley, which is tucked between rolling hills and provides a beautiful landscape.
This is one of the nation’s most up and coming wine producing regions but it still has a local and laid back feel. There are a variety of wineries to explore as well as hiking trails in Silver Falls State Park to enjoy too.
