RAVE Reviews Releases Ranking of the 25 Most Romantic Valentine's Day Destinations

RAVE Reviews has published a ranking of the "25 Most Romantic Valentine's Day Destinations."

It's that time of year again. Plastic hearts start sprouting up everywhere and stores are stuffing shelves with unnecessary amounts of chocolate and teddy bears. For some, this is a reminder of their sad single lives, but for others, it's a reminder that they need to start preparing something for the special person in their lives. Heart-shaped Hersheys, flowers, and a cheap bear will do the trick again, right? Sure, it will do the trick if you like being boring and running the risk of sleeping on the couch. But if you really love that person, it's time to do something that shows you truly care.

You need something that encapsulates thoughtfulness, novelty, adventure, and a touch of sexiness. Not many gifts can do this, but a carefully planned romantic getaway checks all of the boxes. Imagine this: you spend the day with your honey strolling the streets of a rustic town, ice skating, going on a scenic hike, and decompressing with a heavenly spa treatment. You finish the day with a delicious dinner and then go back to your charming B&B for a glass of wine and then, well, you get the picture. If this appeals to you, RAVE has you covered. This ranking gives a brief tour of the most romantic Valentine's day destinations all the way from fairytale-esque Ashland, Oregon, the number one pick, all the way to the idyllic Kennebunkport, Maine. To make your planning easier, RAVE has also included a top-ranked restaurant and lodging option for each city.

In determining which locations to feature, RAVE triangulated similar lists from across the internet and took into account multiple factors such as frequency of appearances on other lists, how unexpected the location is for Valentine's day, and the number of activities at the given location.
