Virginia Romantic Vacation

A Late Given Rose

A single rose - that's romantic.

Virginia bed and breakfasts excel at creating romantic environments, thanks in large part to the love and attention of the innkeepers. Let’s face it, when was the last time you stayed in a chain hotel and found it to be romantic? They can be comfortable, they can be convenient, but they don’t offer that inexplicable “je ne sais quoi” that is the purview of individually owned and operated inns.

Romantic Specials at bed and breakfasts Virginia vary widely. You may find chocolate dipped strawberries and a bottle of Virginia Wine in the room upon arrival. You may dine at the inn or at a nearby elegant restaurant. You’ll breakfast in the morning on fine china by candlelight.

Some Virginia bed and breakfasts arrange a tour of nearby Virginia Wineries and provide two wine glasses to help you remember your romantic stay. Others include a night at the theatre in their romance specials. You may find yourself skimming over the tops of trees during an early morning hot air balloon ride, or enjoying side by side in-room massages. The possibilities are endless.

Virginia Romantic Getaway – It’s Time

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Don’t let another summer pass without making time for a Romantic Getaway in Virginia.

If summer romance means water and sun, head to a Virginia Bed and Breakfast near the Chesapeake Bay or the Virginia coast. Woe your sweetie with a moonlit canoe trip, or an afternoon sailing adventure. Share a bottle of Virginia Wine that you select after touring the region’s wineries. Watch the sunset while holding hands as you walk along the beach.

If summer romance means cool wooded trails and mountains, head to the Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Drive the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway in search of the perfect scenic overlook to share a picnic. Go horseback riding in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. Sleep late, eat an amazing breakfast at your Virginia Bed and Breakfast, and spend a day poking through antique shops in search of treasures.

If summer romance means late nights in the city, head to Northern Virginia and enjoy excursions into the nation’s capitol. Spend days exploring the many historic sites of the region, and then dress up and go to the city for dinner and entertainment.

No matter what defines romance for the two of you, you’ll find it in Virginia. For inspiration, check out our Virginia travel packages and specials page; many inns offer romance packages that can help make any holiday cause for celebration.
