Updated on December 22, 2014

Romantic Vacation for Valentine's Day or Romantic Honeymoon

Valentine’s Day is coming up and maybe you are still thinking about what to get your guy or gal. Why not forego the usual flowers and chocolates and take a vacation? Are you ready for a romantic getaway? Many travel agencies offer discounted travel packages around Valentine’s Day, even if just for the weekend. So, where do you want to go?

Romantic Beach Getaway

White sands and balmy breezes may be appealing to you as a getaway from your own daily grind of going to work day after day in sub-freezing temperatures. Now is the time to save on your dream getaway. Sites such as cheapoair.com show you just how much you can save on your chosen destination. Have you thought about where you would like to go? What appeals to you as far as a romantic spot for you and your partner?

If you would like to get away from the cold clutches of winter, Jamaica is a popular beach spot that perhaps now you can afford. Besides Jamaican beaches, you can enjoy the mountains and cliffs, the cascading waterfalls and continual sunshine. Or put on your lei and head to the lush beauty of Hawaii. Work on your hula moves and attend a real luau. Cancun, Mexico is always a popular spot to relax and unwind with flowing margaritas under the hot sun. These are only a few of the romantic beach spots from which to choose.

Cozy Winter Getaway

Or perhaps you actually prefer the invigorating cold and want to get away where you can surround yourself in mounds of white snow. If snow skiing is your thing, and warming up to a cozy fire with hot chocolate sounds appealing, then head for the snow-covered mountains!

From the well-known ski resorts of Colorado in the U.S. to the rugged, natural snowy mountains of Switzerland, there are plenty of snow-covered hills to explore. Any destination with ski resorts, warm cabins, and hot beverages—and champagne, too—is definitely on the list of romantic getaways.


The City of Love

Romance in the City of Love

Of course the city of love is always on the list. Even Paris can be affordable with the right travel package. Stroll through the romantic city of lights and romance with your special someone. A trip to Paris may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and what better time to visit this special city than Valentine’s Day?

Maybe the romance and excitement of big cities is what appeals to you and your loved one. If you want to experience a thriving, bustling city, consider New York. Take in the most famous plays on Broadway and eat in the finest restaurants. Stroll in Central Park or see the city lights from the top of the Empire State Building.


Don't underestimate the power of a romantic hotel room!

      I don't see Olympia mentioned. I'm a little hurt by this hub. :)

      Good suggestions, unless you have zero money like us, and then you make do in Olympia, Washington.

      Good ideas! We were thinking of a cold-weather hideaway for V-Day. Groupon has some really good deals for the holidays or anytime!

      Switzerland - Approved by someone who lives there ever since he was born! "Engelberg" (Mountain of Angels) is a wonderful place!

      Anywhere with my loved one is fine with me, but the snowy cabin sounds a lot more romantic than a beach getaway at least for Valentines Day. These are wonderful ideas. thanks for sharing.

      Fortunately we live near the ocean so a beach vacation is convenient for us. As you mentioned, a hotel by the beach is ideal and adds to any type of romantic getaway. Come to think of it, we haven't been there in awhile and may have to make a trip there soon. Very nice hub and inviting!

      Wow, now my imagination is running wild. The problem is that I like the beach or a city, and he likes the golf course... LOL I just enjoy seeing new things together. If I could handle his golf cart driving (he drives like a maniac), I am sure I would have visited many golf courses by now.

      Great hub!! :-)

      So many places to choose from! Wouldn't it be nice to get to all of them?! Good suggestions, especially romance in the sun, on the beach. Trying to save to go to Canada this summer. I'll pretend that's Valentine's! Sharing the list with others.
