Valentine’s Day is a holiday we usually don’t associate with travel, which is why it just might be the perfect holiday to plan a dream getaway.
It certainly is less congested than traveling over Thanksgiving or Christmas.
It is the off-season for some places, so you can easily spot a hotel, resort, flight or cruise deal with enough searching.
It’s only a little over a month removed from New Year’s, so if you resolved to travel more or experience a significant change in your life–now’s your chance.
Lastly, Valentine’s Day, which falls in the middle of February comes at a time when most parts of the world are in the middle of–or already sick of enduring–a long, dreary winter. A little sun (aka “hope for brighter, spring days ahead”) is almost required to fight off the seasonal effectiveness disorder (SAD) that sets in from the like of the sun.
My question to you this Monday is: why not travel somewhere or gift yourself, your girlfriends, or your special someone a chance to explore this Valentine’s Day?
You can snag a last-minute travel deal to somewhere warm and spend Valentine’s Day in the sunshine–with a sweetheart or solo by yourself. The sun will be all the companionship you need!
You and your single girlfriends can spend Valentine’s Day night together having a trip-planning party to decide on a place to visit that everyone’s heart will desire.
Got a date?
Travel in style for the date. The horse carriage rides throughout the cities are the first things that come to mind, but think outside the box–take bikes or a double-Decker bus to be a tourist in your own city.
