Make love an adventure, let travel transform your Valentine’s Day. Chocolates, flowers, and jewelry always make a good impression, but sharing a new experience together is where great stories and lifelong memories come from. Here are five amazing places to have a romantic weekend with that special someone.
Lakeside Inn of Mount Dora, Florida is the kind of special place that makes one question whether or not to tell everyone or keep it a secret, and preserve the magic. “There are no strangers in Mt. Dora. As the sun sets each evening over Lake Dora, the community comes alive with performed music around every corner. Fabulous restaurants and wine bars are in full swing as visitors and locals mingle, laugh, swap stories and enjoy the moment.” Many restaurants, antique stores, and sport and leisure opportunities make Florida’s “Festival City” fun, but the authentic sense of community and honest enthusiasm for life make it special. Lakeside Inn, Florida’s oldest continuously running hotel has a Valentine’s weekend package for $505 that includes 3 days, 2 Nights, breakfast each morning, and a special dinner on the 14th with candles and roses.
