Romantic Getaway Packages

While February is the month of romance — with Valentine’s Day smack in the middle of the month — here at Getaway Packages, we believe that romance should be a year-round state of mind. After all, a romantic getaway with your special someone doesn’t need to only take place on a certain day, weekend or week in February!

Here are some vacation packages that will help ignite romance in your life — whether you book them now or file away the ideas for trips this spring or summer.

City Chic: Boston Harbor Hotel
Explore all that the historic city of Boston has to offer from  your home base at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The romance package includes luxurious accommodations on the waterfront (on the 8th through 16th floor, for lovely water or city views), plus champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries and a full American breakfast for two.

Coastal Getaway: Catalina Island
This marvelous little island off the coast of Southern California is the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of city life with your sweetie. Retreat to the New Pavilion Hotel for this romance package that includes accommodations, in-room continental breakfast delivery, chocolate and champagne delivered to the room, a $75 dinner credit at the Avalon Grille, two tickets to the iconic Casino Theatre and 50% a zipline eco tour.

Quiet B&B: The Barn Inn
Retreat to Ohio’s Amish Country with this “Spoiled Rotten” package from The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast. Book any two-night stay and add on these extras: a 1 lb. box of assorted Coblentz fine chocolates, sparking juice and cheese basket waiting in your room; a 30-minute foot massage by a licensed reflexologist; hors d’oeuvres delivered to your room whichever evening you prefer. Each of the rooms in the big red barn are uniquely decorated, and a farm-fresh breakfast is included in the nightly rate.

Desert Delight: L’Auberge de Sedona
This luxurious property in the desert community of Sedona, Arizona, offers the Amour Package, with chilled champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries waiting in your room on arrival, plus a $170 dinner credit and $36 breakfast credit at L’Auberge Restaurant at Oak Creek.

Enjoy your vacation package, whenever you travel — a next-weekend getaway, or a longer escape later this year!

The Vacation Gals are big fans of romantic escapes, whether it’s to a quiet nearby hotel or an exciting getaway across the country.
