Another year, another Valentine’s Day. Sure, most people agree that this is an overrated holiday, but you can’t just write it off (no one wants to be banished to the couch!). So this year, do something different! Forget the cheesy heart-shaped box of mediocre chocolates and some last minute gift you picked up after work, and give the gift of travel! There’s nothing like a romantic getaway for a long weekend or a once-in-a-lifetime trip to an exotic destination. Whether you spend the day relaxing or exploring, you’ll enjoy quality time with your significant other as you experience a new destination and make new memories. Some of our Advisors shared their favorite romantic getaways both domestic and international below.

“South Africa – there is so much to discover in this destination, from the charming wine lands to Cape Town to safari, and what better way to experience a bucket list destination than with your significant other?!” – Brooke Whatley
“Maldives!” –Sarah Lee
“I think New Orleans is a very romantic destination if you avoid the throngs of party-goers on Bourbon Street. Intimate restaurants, romantic hotels, and mystery abounds.” –Haisley Smith
