Valentine’s Day. Guys, whether those two words bring a feeling of excitement for the all the romantic possibilities or dread about how fast it’s approaching, you still need to figure out your plan of action. Remember, the goal is to sweep you loved ones off their feet and not out the door.
Are you preparing to shower your beloved with love poems, chocolate hearts and champagne toasts? What about taking an intimate walk along the beach followed by a candlelit dinner and a relaxing bubble bath? On a romantic getaway, you can enjoy all of these special moments with your sweetheart.
If you’re still feeling unsure, here’s a Cupid-approved guide to getting the most out of Valentine’s Day.
Set the Mood. There’s nothing like a fabulous meal paired with your favorite varietal to put you and your loved one in the mood for love. Begin by feeding each other chocolate covered strawberries at 10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn located in Auburn, NY, followed by a gourmet dinner by candlelight at a top restaurant in town. The next day, get cozy on a 6-hour private wine tour before returning to the inn for an in-suite picnic topped with a scrumptious sweetheart brownie ice cream dessert.
Give a Heartwarming Gift. Romantic surprises are a sure-fire way to melt your lover’s heart, guys. At the Inn at Craig Place, a San Antonio, TX, bed and breakfast inn, you will present your Valentine with a personalized card paired with flowers, champagne and a Murano glass heart pendant along with a single rose and touching Italian love poem.
Disconnect to Reconnect. Turn off your smartphone and gaming devices and turn on the romance at the Amelia Island Williams House on Amelia Island, FL. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the Fernandina Beach Historic District on a private carriage ride down the historic cobblestone streets. Upon return to your elegant room, you can warm up by the crackling fire before cooling down in the whirlpool tub.
Be Sexy En Suite. “Wanna play?” will take on a whole new meaning at Carson Ridge Private Luxury Cabins. Tease, flirt, and seduce each other after choosing a card from a satin pouch at this intimate sanctuary nestled in the Pacific Northwest Mountains of Carson, WA. And, don’t worry about staying up too late; you can sleep in and have breakfast brought to your room the next day.
Lock Up Your Love Forever. At the Tropical Inn, a Key West, FL, bed and breakfast inn, you are invited to attach a lock engraved with your names and date to the newly restored birdcage in the garden. After securing your lock to the cage, you and your sweetheart can walk amidst the inn’s lush tropical gardens and steal a kiss by the beautiful waterfall pool. Before you indulge in the romantic whirlpool for two in your private cottage, take a stroll to Duval Street and explore the restaurants, live music, and shops that are within walking distance from the inn.
Fellas, there’s nothing wrong with asking Cupid for a little help in the romance department, especially when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Sometimes a little guidance goes a long way in love.
