Our Favorite Romantic Getaways


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.
