We are often asked, What is your favorite place that you have visited? The answer to that is complicated, because it has a habit of changing depending on our mood, memory, and where we have been most recently.
None of that matters for this collection though, since in honor of Valentine’s Day we will be confining our picks to places we feel are best for keeping the love flame burning. Sometimes there is nothing better for reigniting that spark than a romantic Getaway.
With that in mind, here are some ideas that stand out from over our last decade of globetrotting:
Ok, we know this is somewhat clichéd, but there is just no arguing that The City of Light is one of the most romantic cities anywhere on earth. That said, we do have a few ideas you may not have heard about before such as a walk through the catacombs, a picnic and boat ride on the canals, a search for the weirdest artworks in the Louvre, or a climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe.
Most of Northern hemisphere is still pretty darn cold right now, so we could not leave out a tropical escape. Hawaii means beaches and fun in the sun, but how about adding to that heat by visiting, and even going inside of a live volcano?
Wandering around the Czech capital feels like walking through the pages of a fairy tale storybook and much like those books, legends abound. Live them first-hand at the home of the Kings of Bohemia and Holy Roman Emperors the Prague Castle, or visit the enchanting Old Town Square and its magical Astronomical Clock. The chilling bone-filled Ossuary at Sedlec is a must see, as is the home to so many mysteries the Charles Bridge. After all of that, some legendary food awaits once upon any time.
The Big Easy is always near the top of our list of favorite places for fun, food, festivals, and of course, romance. It is as close as we can think of to leaving the country without leaving the country.
Speaking of staying close to home, how about exploring the options right in your own backyard? There must be a restaurant you’ve been wanting to try, or a museum that has piqued your interest, or some nearby attraction that is just begging for a weekend getaway.
There is no better time than the present to give it a try and…
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
