Why not step it up a notch and take your sweetheart on a romantic getaway this Valentine’s day? Sure, money can be a problem, but here are some cheap weekend getaways for Valentine’s Day filled with romance and fun.
Any city can be a good city to visit especially if you have good company. A weekend getaway can be an amazing adventure spent alongside your better half, an opportunity to bond with him or her or simply two days off work spent on the beach doing nothing in particular. It all depends on everyone’s taste.
However, if you are planning a getaway, take into consideration everything from both your partner’s and your own schedules, preferences when it comes to destinations and hidden (or not that hidden) wishes and desires. Choose a destination neither of you has ever been to and discover new things together or surprise you partner with a getaway in a city he or she wanted to visit but never had the opportunity.
For those of you who still need ideas, here is a list of affordable travel destinations as weekend getaways for Valentine’s Day.
1. LaGrange in Georgia
LaGrange is not only a city filled with picturesque sightings, but they also organize special events during Valentine’s Day . You can enjoy some outdoors activities as LaGrange has a beautiful 26,000 acre lake and loads of parks suitable for hiking trails and running. If you and your partner are more the indoors type, you can enjoy yourselves with some shopping, dining at the local restaurants or enjoy the art exhibitions.
2. La Jolla in California
California spelled backwards is romance (it’s actually not, but you get the point) so enjoy yourselves on the west coast of the Pacific Ocean and visit La Jolla, the hometown of boutique hotels and amazing restaurants.
3. Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina
For mountain lovers or simply a couple of people who want to try out new things and new experiences, the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina are definitely a sight worth seeing. There are plenty of cabins available for rental and some of them even have romantic touches such as a fire place or a hot tub.
4. Rockland in Maine
Rockland is quite an unique travel destination because it combines rocky and stiff mountainous landforms with beaches and shores. Enjoy some time spent on the beach, then try some local cuisine in one o the small, fancy dining places. What more can you ask for?
5. Molokai in Hawaii
Hawaii can be a fairly expensive travel destination and it is not suitable for any budget but the island of Molokai has a bit of a different story to tell. There are not many fun activities available on the island as it may be considered somewhat deserted by tourists, which actually makes it the perfect romantic weekend getaway for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy the company of your partner without anyone interrupting!
6. Poconos, Pennsylvania
If this Valentine’s Day you want to offer yourself and your partner a break from your daily routine, some time apart from all the everyday stress and hassle, then Poconos is your best weekend getaway for Valentine’s Day choice. Rent a cabin (they can be cheaper then you expect), fill up the fridge with some delicious food and champagne and relax. You can either bring already prepared meals and simply heat them up or choose to cook together on the spot.
These were our ideas for cheap weekend getaways for Valentine’s Day. All of these destinations can be used throughout the year and not only for the most romantic day in February as sceneries are worth seeing no matter what time of the year it is.
