This list of 7 romantic February getaways will definitely help you get started.
Seems like millennials are romantic travelers.
There are many reasons why we should love traveling. By visiting different places we have a chance to meet new cultures and people, fall in love with the food, and even find our soulmates. And falling in love while traveling seems to be the reason most millennials go on a trip. Research by Topdeck Travel shows that one in eight millennial men hopes to find “the one” while traveling.
A tech-savvy generation is trying to find alternatives to online dating options which became popular in the past decade. Another study by YouGov found that the main motive behind millennials traveling is finding a soulmate without having to reach for the apps, and even 37% of them are willing to give up dating to save money for travel.
Whether you are single or not, there are enough reasons why you should go on a trip. Continue reading and find out which 7 locations are ideal for romantic February getaways.
One of our top romantic February getaways is Paris.
Our list of 7 top romantic February getaways couldn’t possibly go without listing Paris as a “must-see” destination. The city of love will amaze you with its glorious architecture, impeccable food, artistic treasures, and much more. It’s the place to be if you are planning a romantic trip with your significant other.
This city has a lot to offer and it is crucial to plan your travel wisely, or you risk being overwhelmed by it. An attraction you should visit is definitely the Eiffel Tower. Its grace and the fantastic view from the top will offer you a one-of-a-kind experience.
Avenue des Champs-Élysées is at its best in the spring, however cold February shows this street in a whole other way. If you and your partner are into shopping, Avenue des Champs-Élysées will give you a unique experience with its luxury shops.
Another thing to love about Paris…
… is food. France has a great reputation when it comes to cuisine. Whether you love a cozy bistro or a Michelin-starred restaurant you won’t make the wrong choice. You will have a chance to try the most amazing cheeses and drink the best wine and eat French pastries from their boulangeries (bakeries). No place can top Paris.
As we said, no place can top Paris, except maybe Rome.
If you’re actively searching for romantic February getaways, Rome might just do the job. It maybe sounds like a cliché, but making a wish and tossing a coin in the Trevi Fountain with your significant other might be one of the most romantic things to do for Valentine’s day. And the tradition goes in our favor. It is believed that a coin tossed ensures your return to Rome, two make you fall in love with a Roman, and three medals tossed guarantee your marriage to them.
Like the French, Italians are also known for their food. There is something for anyone, and even the pickiest among us will find something to crave for. Delicious pastries, strong flavored coffee, and an eye-catching view fit everything we should look for in a romantic gateway trip.
The third candidate on our romantic February gateways list is Tahiti.
If you’ve had enough cold weather and city landscape then Tahiti might be the right destination for you. And Tahiti has it all – leafy forests beside sandy shores, impeccable French food, sheltered blue lagoons, and shadowy mountains. And that’s not all – discovering local handcraft and Polynesian culture and eating their delicacies will make your visit worth traveling.
St Moritz is definitely among the top romantic destinations for the ones with a bigger wallet.
If you’re into skiing and winter sports while staying in a luxury retreat then this Swiss city is the right place for you this February. Snow-covered St Moritz dares couples to try different winter sports like bobsled, ice skating, and skiing. And a mulled wine beside a fireplace makes it truly a romantic destination to be at this February.
Buenos Aires is the gem of South American soil and our fifth choice for a romantic getaway.
The place where the most sensual and romantic dance was invented will knock you off of your feet. Tango remains the light motive of every visit to Argentina. And it’s danced everywhere – from small local bars to the big clubs and even in parks. Make your romantic travel memorable by learning a few sensual tango moves.
Still not convinced by our romantic February getaways list?
… then reading about Verona might change your mind. There is a reason why Shakespeare chose to place the most romantic of his plays in Verona. This picturesque medieval city is waiting for you to light the love flames. The famous balcony where Romeo and Juliet met waits just for you to visit and a Roman amphitheater from the 1st century will amaze you in its glory. Get your tickets and order a glass of Prosseco. And this will be a romantic journey to remember.
And last, but not least among our top February getaways.
Finally, there is Cape Town, South Africa. If you love sunny weather, clear skies with strong breezes, and warm nights then Cape Town might be the right destination for your romantic getaway. Visit the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway which offers an awe-inspiring panoramic view of the city. If you are a wine lover, then Cape Town’s wine-tasting routes will offer you a one-of-a-kind experience. And there’s something for foodies here – with its rich cultural background Cape Town’s cuisine will wake up all your senses.
Traveling always represents a unique experience and sharing it with our significant other takes them to a whole other level. Traveling in two makes the relationship stronger.
However, if you’re on a budget, don’t worry. You can still have a romantic getaway. You do not have to travel a long distance in order to experience the wonders of a romantic getaway. Be a tourist in your hometown, and explore beautiful parts of your city.
