Valentine’s Vacations

“Happiness is in your ability to love others.” – Leo Tolstoy

With Valentine’s Day 2014 landing on a Friday, many people are choosing to take that day off in order to have a four-day weekend. Extra days in a weekend often mean more time to travel! While buying flowers and chocolate are always good, sometimes spending money to travel together can be just the thing you need to ignite your romance again! Rekindle your love by taking a trip to one of the following locations:

  1. Las Vegas
  2. Cancun, Mexico
  3. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
  4. New York City
  5. Orlando
  6. Honolulu
  7. San Francisco
  8. San Diego
  9. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
  10. Chicago

Keep in mind that Las Vegas was voted both the #1 destination for a Valentine’s Day destination as well as #1 on the Sexiest Cites survey, both of which were based on Orbitz booking data. Learn more about these surveys by reading “Vegas named America’s Sexiest city, top hot spot for 2014 Valentine’s weekend.”

Las Vegas

While Las Vegas might not be the perfect place to¬†find love, it can definitely be the right spot for a vacation with your significant other! Valentine’s Day activities in Vegas can have a variety of prices depending on what you’re up for. This miniguide describes “Upscale, moderate, and/or tightwad budget choices for hotels, dining, entertainment, nightlife, and offbeat activities.”

Also, for unique dates that you can only have in Las Vegas, see the slideshow PHOTOS: Valentine’s Day dates in Las Vegas.

Will you have a “Vegas Enabler” this year? You know, the people who talk you out of your comfort zone, are unpredictable, and yet still seem irresistible? ¬†If you go on a group trip and you’re also with your significant other, you might just find yourself talked into a marriage this Valentine’s Day!
