February is notorious for being a tough month but this year things feel different. With no jacket required temperatures lately, you could be forgiven for thinking the days of February blahs were behind us. The one thing that has remained a constant: Valentine’s day.

There’s no escaping the fact that for many, February is the month of love. Why not take a cue from our Spring-ter season and change things up this year? This year instead of sharing a box of take-out in front of the fire with “sleeping kids” as your only ambiance, escape it all with a night you’ll remember.  

We’ve rounded up some amazing Valentine’s Day travel deals to inspire your romantic escape.
