Aside from being the only month with less than 30 days, February is also called the month of love since Valentine’s Day falls on the 14th of the month. While traveling outside the United States might not be advisable for the moment, couples can travel within the country to rekindle the romance of their love.
If you’re planning to travel at this time, make sure to follow health protocols and guidelines set by each state. Here are some of the most romantic places to visit in the United States.
Napa Valley, California
Napa Valley is among the world’s most famous wine regions in the world. Its rolling vineyards, chic restaurants, and cozy wine vineyards give it the romantic ambiance couples are looking for during the love month. It is the ultimate getaway for wine lovers who might even see sparklers from Kravit Jewelers slid into the fingers of lucky brides-to-be while they’re savoring gourmet wine at wineries of the Napa Valley.
Some wineries couples can visit include The Hess Collection Winery, Etude Wines, Domaine Carneros by Taittinger, and the Trefethen Family Vineyards. They can also go through a Napa Valley experience, such as the Taming the Lion Wine Blending Experience, the Cycle, Sip N Smile in Calistoga, and an Exclusive Tour with the Vintner. They can also join the Learn How to Fly Fish at Wine Country organized by the Napa Valley Fly Guides at the Potah Creek.
These are just some of the activities couples can look forward to when they visit Napa Valley during the month of love.
It is the fourth largest island in Hawaii, and Kauai is also called the Garden Island. It is blessed with lush green valleys, cascading waterfalls, and tropical rainforests. The island also offers dramatic sunsets that couples can witness while sitting on its pristine beaches. Some areas on the island are only accessible through air or sea, which makes it more appealing for anyone looking to spend a romantic weekend with their significant other.
Couples can hike along the Napali Coast, snorkel on Poipu Beach, or kayak the Wailua River. They can also book a private helicopter and get a bird’s eye view of this island paradise. The simple yet appealing beauty is highlighted by its rural feel with resorts that are not towering over the island, unlike other tourist spots in the world. It is one place couples can relax and spend quality time together.
Charleston, South Carolina
Couples who love history and art will feel at home in Charleston, South Carolina. Among the notable art galleries of the town named after Charles II of England include the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, the Robert Lange Studios, and Gibbes Museum of Art. If the couple wants to learn about African-American culture, they can visit the Beyond the Fields: Enslavement at Middleton Place and the Old South Carriage Co.
Couples can also join a sunset harbor cruise or board the Charleston Princess for a romantic evening for two. They can also take a stroll at the James Island County Park or become acquainted with southern cuisine by joining a Charleston Food Tour.
For their accommodations, they have the option of staying at a beach resort, a historic inn, or a simple bed and breakfast. Vacation rentals are also available if they opt to stay for an extended period in Charleston.
Like Charleston, Savannah, Georgia has a unique appeal for couples who enjoy the south’s culture and cuisine. The different districts of the city give it a diverse ambiance that many people find attractive.
Aside from its well-known Historic District where couples can immerse themselves in the culture and art of the city, Savannah also has a Starland District where creativity and design have taken over the community, the Victorian District and its 1800s Victorian homes that seem to bring people to the past, and the Moon River District where outdoor enthusiasts will have a little bit of fun on a barrier island or visit an aquarium filled with a variety of sea creatures.
The delightful year-round weather in Savannah also makes it ideal for couples to check out the city’s alfresco restaurants. Some popular restaurants that couples might want to visit are Vic’s on the River with its menu of fresh seafood and classic dishes, the Moon River Brewing Company and its house-made beers, Starland Yard, which was originally a food truck that evolved into a full-blown restaurant, and Treylor Park with their specialty cocktails and creative food items.
These are just some of the many options couples have if they plan to spend quality time together during the month of love.
