It’s the time of the year when chocolate, cinnamon and candy hearts creep their way into stores and the hearts (well, stomachs) of love birds, or the broken-hearted, worldwide.
Food can be comforting, but the Travelzoo deal experts have an alternate solution -- romantic retreats. Whether traveling with a loved one, or getting away with friends, the selection is endless.
The following are a few favorite romantic getaway spots:
Niagara Falls: Gaze at the falls from a hotel with a view, or kick up the romance with rooms featuring heart-shaped Jacuzzis. Wine lovers can double their pleasure by adding a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake -- an Ontario wine country favorite.
Hawaii: Aloha! Throw on the grass skirts, coconuts and don’t forget the lei -- all imperative for this romantic getaway.
Napa Valley: Red and white are the colors of the season, and Napa Valley is overflowing with both. Peruse through the vineyards on a winery tour, or break for a meal on a terrace while looking out at the picturesque scenery.
Paris: Oooo Paris … the lover’s capital. What says amour more than the thought of strolling alongside the Seine River while catching a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower from the corner of your eye.
Riviera Maya and Los Cabos, Mexico: Home to upscale hotels, lazy rivers and scenery made for postcards. Between the hot weather and mariachi bands, both of these spectacular destinations are a lover’s paradise.
