We know that it’s easy for the romance to quickly give way to work, play dates and rushed meals. To that end, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite three romantic weekend getaways. Sure, anyone can recapture love at the top of the Eiffel Tower at night or standing beside the running waters of the Trevi Fountain, but it takes a real romantic to find it in a place that fits your budget and is near by.
Don’t give winter the cold shoulder, warm up with the one you love on a romantic weekend getaway!
Yep. You read that right.
Wherever you may live, there are romantic spots, we assure you. Whether it’s a lavish weekend at a spa/hotel or a weekend at home while the kids are at grandma’s house, you can easily rekindle that spark in your own home town. Go to a (grown-up!) movie, have dinner, visit a comedy club, buy chestnuts and roast them at home, go skating, go for a ski weekend, take a cooking/skating/painting/dance/computer/snowboarding/dodgeball class…TOGETHER and let the smiles, adrenaline and flushed faces reconnect you.
Named in honour of a visit by the Duke and Duchess of York, the Prince of Wales Hotel is perched at the main corner of the picturesque Old Town. With an enviable location at the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario’s most exciting theatres, shops, and restaurants are at your door. Though once you experience the serene atmosphere of the Secret Garden Spa, the decadence of Escabèche restaurant, and absolutely beautiful period décor, you may not want to leave your hotel sanctuary.
Spacious premium guest rooms are individually decorated with Victorian-age accents like dark-wood furniture, patterned wallpaper and rich floral fabrics; most feature a gas fireplace or jetted tub. If you book your stay through Travelzoo, you can get an excellent couples get-away deal that includes a welcome bottle of Niagara wine, full breakfast for two in the Escabèche Restaurant, tasting Passes for CDC and Oast Brewery, as well as a tour and samples at Chocolate F/X. What’s better to get romantic than wine and chocolate in a beautiful setting?
You might also want to splurge and indulge in a relaxing salt-water soak at the on-site Secret Garden Spa or reconnect with your love over afternoon tea in the drawing room.
