It’s that time of year again. Time to make romantic plans with that special someone; whether that means opening up the wallet or simply escaping it all with the one you care about most. Valentine’s Day may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until next year to make memorable plans with a loved one. And, if you’re anything like us, you’ll find any excuse to get back on the open road to new and exciting destinations. So, we at Dutchmen suggest a few romantic getaways that allow RV owners everywhere to continue their roving lifestyle, while also keeping close to destinations where the amenities are often lavish, the activities are perfect for bonding and the atmosphere is always nice and cozy. 

Ideal locations for those romantic winter getaways

What could be more romantic than escaping into the heart of wine country? Napa Valley is known for its beautiful vistas, warm moonlit terraces, and of course, the wine.

Best things to do or sights to see:

  • First, of course, explore the hundreds of wineries dotting this rich and inviting countryside
  • Whether by bike, trolley or even hot air balloon, experience an in-depth winery tour
  • Visit spas and world-class eateries overlooking endless rows of grape vines

It’s about celebrating one another and escaping the daily grind… and a good excuse for going somewhere that takes the work off your shoulders for once.
