10 Romantic Places to spend Valentine’s Day

No Gravatar

It’s time that those of us who boycott Valentine’s Day suck it up. It’s just not cool to be too-cool for love. Why not just take the opportunity to treat ourselves (ahem, significant others) to something nice – or see it as an excuse to travel together!?

Here are the places I’d be happy to find myself on Valentine’s Day, built from nostalgia for places I’ve been, and places I dream to be.

5 Practical Places:

A Weekend in Montreal

Sultry dining at Au Pied du Cuchon

Anyone located in New England can make a trip to this romantic city for quite less than one might think.  A train from New York takes a full day, but adds some romance in itself – buses, though not as romantic, are easily found from most cities.  Flights can be found for under $200 round trip, and the cozy bed and breakfasts like University Bed and Breakfast or  Anne ma soeur Anne Hotel Studio can make you a good deal.  Save some cash though for a coma-inducing fois gras themed dinner at Au Pied du Cuchon. (I can think of a few ways to work up your appetite…)
