For some couples, turning up the romance factor on Valentine’s Day can feel like a lot of pressure. But getting away with bae doesn’t have to be hard. Renting a romantic property in a nearby city with lots to offer is always a simple yet promising plan.
In case you’re looking for inspiration, popular home sharing platform Airbnb just released some fun facts about the most desired Valentine’s Day weekend destinations for 2019 and they may be closer to home than you think.
If you’re on the West Coast, Lake Tahoe, which is situated in the Sierra Nevada of the U.S. along the state lines of California and Nevada, is the top trending destination couples plan to visit for Valentine’s Day weekend 2019. In addition to the breathtaking views the area has to offer, many of the city’s attractions are perfect for parties of two (think couples massages, spa sessions and dinners overlooking the mountains.) For East Coasters, New Orleans, the Catskills and Hudson Valley areas, and New York are also trending hotspots this season. And, don’t sleep on Phoenix, Arizona, which is a short ride away from Scottsdale, where luxury spas reign supreme. Those seeking an international romantic destination have their sites set on Seville, Spain, the site reveals.
For Valentine’s Day (which falls on a Thursday this year), Airbnb renters are headed to Miami, Toronto, Los Angeles, Christchurch, New Zealand and Cuba West, Cuba.
If you like to plan ahead, after you book a romantic Airbnb rental for two, you can also use the site to book local activities and excursions to make the most of your short, but sweet, stay.
For instance, Airbnb also offers sunrise or sunset hikes to the Hollywood sign for the perfect photo opp.
If you have extra airline miles to spare or simply need a last-minute win to spice it up this Valentine’s Day, we suggest you get to booking. (You’re welcome.)
