The expectations are always the same when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Every year there are a few ideas to choose from to symbolize the love you have for your significant other. For instance, it could be a heart-shaped box of chocolates, a bouquet of beautiful roses, a stuffed animal, or a balloon. Of course, it could also be an exquisite piece of jewelry or an elegant dinner reservation.
Don’t you think it is time to change things up a bit? What if you forego the ordinary this year and reach for the extraordinary?
A valentine’s getaway would give you both a chance to have an experience together that would get tucked away deep within the memory bank. You could even make it extra special with the help of a private jet charter.
There are so many places to see and things to do that can add value to your relationship. And, if you really want to give chocolate or a piece of jewelry, you can still do that, too. Just enjoy it at your destination – or on your way to it.
So, where should you take your valentine? Here are the six best places to visit for a valentine’s getaway.
Scottsdale, AZ is Phoenix’s classy neighbor. There are so many fun and romantic things to do while here – and some amazing places to stay, too. You will find a lot of romantic restaurants serving up delicious meals, scenic train rides, hiking, and lots of shopping. Plus, you won’t want to miss the live entertainment and drinks that you will find throughout the city. Snuggle up or dance – either way, it is sure to be a great time.
And did we mention that the weather here is beautiful, too – especially during the month of February?
Looking for a tropical escape? Key West, FL – the southernmost tip in the continental U.S. can be a great getaway for lovers. Like typical island life, the pace here is slow. Wake up to the beautiful sunrise over the water and watch the magnificent sunset over the water on the other side of the island.
It is typically still warm enough to spend your days by – or in – the water here. That means snorkeling, boating, fishing, and scuba diving. Stroll through the local shops, sip an adult beverage under a tiki hut, and listen to live music. You won’t want to miss some incredible restaurant options, too.
Life here is a change of pace – and the perfect spot to spend time with someone you love.
New Orleans may have a reputation for being sultry, but romance is well and alive here, too. Imagine sitting snug in a booth listening to live music in a jazz club – after having a delicious cajun dinner. It is so simple yet it captures all that love the feeling of love is about.
What to do in New Orleans?
Go for a romantic walk through City Park, holding hands and taking in the world around you. Enjoy all the celebrations that take place in the French Quarter’s Jackson Square. Ride on a streetcar and see the sights. Take a river cruise. Eat at romantic restaurants. Take an airboat ride. Should we keep going?
There is so much to do here that it is sure to help you create a valentine’s day that won’t easily be forgotten.
Looking for a quiet getaway? Why not rent a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains?
Waking up surrounded by the sounds of nature – and the view of mountains as far as you can see – can be incredible. You can explore the area, experiencing gem mining, ziplining, and hiking. You can also enjoy cozy mom-and-pop restaurants all throughout the area. You will even find neat markets and shops to check out, too.
The best part? You can spend your mornings sipping coffee on your cabin porch – and your evenings by the fire. Follow it up with a dip in the outdoor jacuzzi before heading off toward bed.
Blue Ridge allows you to slow down time and just enjoy one another’s company.
Are you an avid skier? A novice? Regardless of your level, if you are interested in hitting the slopes with your significant other for a valentine’s getaway, Telluride is where you need to be.
This town screams romance from the mountaintops. It is a fun, romantic winter wonderland just waiting for you to explore.

You are sure to enjoy your time in Telluride.
Surprise your significant other with a trip to New York City – the city that never sleeps. Some of the most incredible restaurants are in this city (be sure to make a reservation) and shopping, too.

Overlook the city from the Empire State Building. Stop by Grand Central Station.
There are so many things to see and places to go throughout the city. And, whatever you do, don’t miss the city at night. The sights and the sounds are all you need for a romantic night.
