Itineraries for a Romantic Getaway

Rekindling and Rejuvenation for Two

Ah, now that the holiday season's hustle and bustle is behind us, it is that time of year when romantic getaways are at the forefront of our minds.

Whether it's Valentines Day or an day, many quick getaways are driven by romance: honeymoons, anniversaries, proposals, rejuvenations, etc... It is a time to celebrate relationships and to appreciate our loved ones. 

Although most travel industry commercials conjure up images of luxury, lavishing attention and spoiling each other does not necessarily have to break the bacnk. Here in Minneapolis Northwest, we  have put together two itineraries: luxurious versus budget-friendly. The total tabs may be different but romatic quotient remains intact. So book your room, reserve your table, create your playlist, bring your champagne, pack your LBD, leave your laptop at home and let the fun begin!
