While we can create romance in our lives any time of the year, it’s Valentine’s Day that brings out the creative and romantic ideas and dreams in all of us. It’s a special day to celebrate love. That said, here are our top 10 suggestions you may want to consider for you and your honey.
1. Go on a cozy sleigh ride
It’s the quintessential New England picture – glistening snow, majestic horses pulling a quaint sleigh in a beautiful winter wonderland setting, and you and your sweetheart cozied up together under a blanket. Visit New England Sleigh Rides for suggestions on the best location for your romantic ride.
2. Renew your wedding vows
Who wouldn’t love to celebrate their relationship in such a romantic way? Arrange for a private ceremony and then do a romantic, honeymoon overnight stay at a quaint inn. Here are a few suggestions for your planning pleasure:
- The Birchwood Inn, a lovely 1767 B&B set in the heart of the historic village of Lenox, MA.
- Four Columns Inn, that sits at the foot of its own mountain, overlooking the village green; located in the southern Vermont town of Newfane.
- The Saybrook Point Inn and Spa resort nestled along the southern shoreline of CT – just two hours from NYC.
3. Cozy up at home – where the heart is
The art of cooking together can be very romantic – bottle of wine, music, and a roaring fire to enjoy your culinary creation. Share a romantic dance together, take out your wedding album or pictures from your favorite and most romantic vacation and rekindle the love.
4. Take a Valentine’s Day Dinner Cruise
Cruising with your Valentine…how romantic. Roses, dinner, champagne, dancing, snuggling together as you take in the beautiful Boston skyline. You can find it all on Boston’s own luxury Odyssey, as it embarks on a very special Valentine’s Day dinner cruise.
5. Select that special lingerie… together
No need to elaborate here. Take your honey bunch to a lingerie store and together have fun selecting beautiful lingerie for her, or should I say, for you both… then, go home and enjoy a romantic evening.
6. Learn the sizzling hot Argentine Tango
Arrange a private dance lesson for you and your Valentine to learn the dance known for its up close and expressive passion – the Argentine Tango. Go ahead and do it! Turn yourselves into hot Argentine dancers…even if for just the evening.
7. Enjoy a relaxing spa weekend
Romance can’t help but be in the air when you surprise your sweetie with a weekend getaway to the Woodstock Inn and Spa, or perhaps the Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa. Be sure to arrange for a private couples massage in your suite – you can’t go wrong with this one!
8. Visit beautiful Newport, RI
Spend the day, or even an overnight, in charming Newport, RI. Explore its winter season coastal beauty, visit some of its romantic and elegant mansions, and explore its quaint little side streets dotted with shops, intimate B&B’s offering afternoon tea, museums, and more. Then cozy up to a romantic dinner or stay at one of these two suggested venues overlooking the ocean:
9. Join the “Be Mine: Chocolate and Valentines” celebration
You just might want to get in on the fun planned at Old Sturbridge Village, February 9 – 10, 2013 where you’ll go back in time to a quaint New England village and enjoy the special display of antique Valentine’s Day cards and learn about the history of chocolate through live processing and cooking demonstrations by historic interpreters. And, weather permitting, there’s more fun in store – sleigh rides, ice skating, and sledding. A perfect setting for an old fashioned Valentine’s Day.
10. Simple and sweet – go to the shore
“Baby, it’s cold outside,” but who cares? Grab your better half and take a ride to the beach and enjoy its winter personality – take a walk, hold hands, snuggle up close and keep each other warm, and watch the sun set. The rest is up to you….
Fall in love again… wishing a very happy Valentine’s Day to all.
