Sure, you could pick up some flowers or take your partner out for a nice meal to celebrate Valentine's Day.


Or you could plan a trip for just the two of you! The romantic memories of a luxurious few days away from your everyday lives will certainly last much longer than flowers or a fancy dinner.

But where to start? How to plan? We've made it easy on you with these seven ideas for a romantic weekend away -- a perfect gift any time of year.

Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas

We never say no to a good spa treatment, and that’s why we love the idea of an escape to the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Hotel & Residences. Just four hours from Los Angeles, this luxurious oasis spoils couples with signature spa treatments, including the Heart of Romance, a body exfoliation and hydrotherapy botanical bath with aromatherapy massage, and the Karmic Happiness Ritual, designed for couples seeking romance and longevity.

Deer Path Inn

Do you fancy relaxing in a cozy inn modeled after a 15th century English manor house? If so, we found the perfect English-inspired escape at Deer Path Inn, just 45 minutes outside of Chicago. Couples can spend the night in the Royal, Cornwall, or Buckingham suites, complete with traditional tea service and a snack-pantry stocked with complimentary English-inspired favorites.

Letchworth Farm B&B

Active couples will love escaping to the Letchworth Farm B&B, located on an 88-acre estate with private lake and four en-suite bedrooms. Letchworth State Park, also known as the Grand Canyon of the East, is within walking distance and features breathtaking waterfalls and miles of trails to explore.

The Collector Luxury Inn & Gardens

If you and your honey have a strong appreciation for art and history, you’ll love a visit to The Collector Luxury Inn & Gardens. This historic, luxury inn is located in the heart of St. Augustine and has been an integral part of the city’s history, serving as a 16th-century hospital and cemetery, an 18th-century Spanish defense line and the setting for Abraham Lincoln’s reading of the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation.

21c Museum Hotel Lexington

Equestrian loving couples can spend a romantic weekend at 21c Museum Hotel Lexington, a boutique hotel and contemporary art museum located in Lexington, Kentucky, known as the Horse Capital of the World. Couples will even have the chance to meet the city’s famed championship thoroughbreds – an experience that was previously unavailable to the public.

The Bristol Hotel

A serene weekend away from the kids is just the kind of Valentine’s Day treat we deserve, and we think we’ll find it at The Bristol Hotel in Bristol, Virginia. Their Dine & Unwind Package includes romantic cocktails for two overlooking the dreamy Blue Ridge Mountains and a scratch-made breakfast served bedside.

Inns of Aurora

If the quiet respite of the Finger Lakes is more your speed, you and your sweetie will love the Inns of Aurora, a collection of four luxurious lakeside inns in the Finger Lakes of New York, overlooking Cayuga Lake. This escape offers opportunities for restorative yoga and meditation sessions, essential oil or tea blending classes, and award-winning, farm-to-table cuisine.
