There are some pretty great romantic weekend getaways you can take for this Valentine’s Day, considering the holiday falls on a Friday. Extend the special day on through to the entire weekend and whisk your date away to a quiet bed and breakfast, a mountaintop resort, or to a simple seaside destination.

Ready to romance? Here are seven of the most romantic weekend getaways for Valentine’s Day 2020.

Romantic Weekend Getaways For Valentine’s Day 2020

1. New Orleans, Louisiana

Valentine’s Day aside, New Orleans is actually one of the best options for a 48-hour getaway in the United States. But, we also can’t deny just how spectacular it is for a romantic weekend getaway for Valentine’s Day 2020. Check into a lovely spot like the Henry Howard Hotel before preparing to treat both the foodie and the romantic in you. The city’s brimming with wonderful eats, charming streets, and lots of great spots where you can steal a kiss or two.

2. Telluride, Colorado

Forget about Aspen and ditch the plans to head to Utah for some snow. For Valentine’s Day 2020, it’s all about the snow-capped mountains that tower over Telluride. Here, you can spend the weekend skiing, snowboarding, and sledding the majestic San Juan Mountains. Or, you can explore the small yet historic city with a special someone. It’s a famous foodie city. But, you’ll also find that it’s home to a delightfully charming historic centre to enjoy in-between quiet evenings holed up in your mountain-view hotel.

3. Berlin, Maryland

Berlin was once voted as the ‘Coolest Small Town in America.’ Now, we’re looking to put it on the map as one of the most romantic, too. In fact, it’s so charming that both Runaway Bride and Tuck Everlasting were filmed here. A coincidence? We think not. Take your bride and run away to this charming New England town. You can spend the weekend exploring local shops as you walk hand-in-hand down sycamore-lined streets. Locals are super friendly and there are lots of great restaurants to try.

4. Catalina Island, California

After a bit of a beachy vacation but can’t afford to shell out thousands of dollars to head to the Maldives? Catalina Island is a lot closer and, honestly, a lot more charming than the Maldives anyway. Located just 22 miles off the coast of Southern California, you’re just a short boat ride away from a picture-perfect paradise. And, a weekend getaway is just long enough to relax, explore, and unwind with some intimate ocean-side dining.

5. Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston is one of the United States’ most charming towns. From its deep-rooted history to the gorgeous architecture that’s framed perfectly by nature and greenery, there’s nothing not to love about this iconic Southern town. And, it’s even better when explored as a couple. The hospitable will welcome you home for the weekend where you can explore distinguished restaurants that personify the city. Also, the city’s loaded with charming bed and breakfasts and you’ve got yourself one magical Valentine’s Day.
