For the third year in a row, Vegas holds the #1 spot for Valentine’s Day travel. Couples enjoy Vegas because of the affordable room rates ($112 per night and up) and the countless entertainment, dining, and shopping options along the famous Las Vegas strip. Vegas has something for everyone, including a wedding chapel if you want to tie the knot or renew your wedding vows, and plenty of great spots to pop the question (like on a gondola cruise, at the Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower, or at the Bellagio Fountains).
Couples travel to New Orleans for Valentine’s Day simply because of the city’s enchanting, slow-paced, jazz-filled atmosphere. Take a horse drawn carriage (located in front of Jackson Square) through the French Quarter to begin your holiday. Be sure to book early for your hotel or bed and breakfast, and especially for any dinner reservations. New Orleans will have you falling in love all over again.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day in New York can be magical. You could see all the tourist attractions (like Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and the Empire State Building) or you could just enjoy walking through Time’s Square and Central Park together. While you’re in the Big Apple, don’t miss out on the chance to splurge big at one of the city’s most romantic restaurants, like the Spotted Pig and Peter Luger Steak House. Celebrating in NYC will be a memory you and your love will treasure for a lifetime.
The city of San Francisco is full of romantic things to do year round, which is probably why so many couples love visiting the city on Valentine’s Day. Whether you decide to watch the sun set over the Golden Gate Bridge, take a romantic stroll along Fisherman’s Wharf, or sail along the Bay Area, you won’t be disappointed in the romantic setting the city has to offer. San Francisco is also in close proximity to Napa and Sonoma Valley, too.
Orlando isn’t just for family vacations. While theme parks are the main attractions, you’ll find that Orlando has a romantic atmosphere waiting to be discovered by you. Swim and play with bottlenose dolphins at Discovery Cove, stroll down Park Avenue and stop for ice cream at Haagen-Dazs, or dance the night away at Disney’s Pleasure Island (adults only). Of course, Orlando has world-class dining and romantic eateries scattered throughout the city. Orlando has plenty of romance to offer, you just have to know where to look!
