This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday – the timing couldn’t be better to romance your honey all weekend long.  But where do you go and what do you do? No worries… we’ve put together a list of our Top 10 Romantic Getaways for Valentine’s Day. Each destination includes a brief description of fun things to do and a link to sightseeing tours and activities. Have fun celebrating with your sweetie and make it a Valentine’s Day to remember.

1.  San Francisco, CA

It’s no secret that San Francisco is one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. It’s also a top foodie destination. We may be a teeny bit biased because we live here, but it is really is a very special place. Whisk your honey away on a scenic twilight bay cruise with the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the city skyline as your backdrop. Explore North Beach and its outdoor cafes, a perfect spot for a cappuccino and espresso. Enjoy a romantic Italian dinner, then take your honey to see Beach Blanket Babylon, a hilarious, one-of-a-kind, only-in-San Francisco show featuring song, dance and comedy – it’s so good, we’ve seen it four times! Visit Fisherman’s Wharf and feast on San Francisco’s famous sourdough bread and fresh Dungeness Crab. For a romantic setting overlooking the ocean, head over to the Cliff House for cocktails and dinner as the sun sets over the Pacific. If you have time, take a fun day trip along California’s spectacular coastline and visit Monterey and Carmel – both offer a truly romantic setting for Valentine’s Day.

Las Vegas offers so many FUN Things To Do 24/7 – and many of the attractions are FREE! We’ve put together some of our favorite “freebies” – check them out and let us know if there are any more we should add to the list.

The Fountains of Bellagio is one of the most popular attractions on the Strip. In our opinion, it’s the best show in town! Day or night, it’s a “must-see” when visiting Vegas – we try to catch it whenever we’re in town. The fountains dance to music, ranging from Opera, Country and Classical, to Pop and Broadway Show Tunes. Night shows are pure magic. Arrive early to get a good viewing spot along the street promenade directly on
Las Vegas Strip, facing Bellagio’s lake.
