you and your better half cuddling fireside as the sun dips behind the distant
mountains. The only sounds are from the wild; the only sights are canyons and the
stark desert. No, you’re not in the Sahara. You’re at Utah’s ultra-romantic
Valentine’s Day looming and no end to winter in sight, who doesn’t dream of
stealing away on vacation? But you don’t need to travel to the ends of the
earth (or beloved spots like Paris or the Caribbean) to find that

perks like a gratis convertible inspire drives along scenic Highway 1 with
impromptu picnics on any of the breathtaking beaches.

suites with kiva fireplaces set among the red-rock canyons of Sedona, while 2 1/2
hours gets you from Atlanta to a Blue Ridge Mountains retreat.
sometimes, romance is just a subway ride away. Lovebirds who want to fall in
love with their hometown all over again—or flock to a hotel with urban
sophistication—can look no further than actor Robert De Niro’s Greenwich Hotel
in New York City.
