If you are planning on a romantic getaway for Valentine's Day, take a close look at an island just off the United States coast. If you havenít already selected a location for your getaway, I would encourage you to examine St. Thomas. The island of St. Thomas is located in the Virgin Islands. It is most well-known for its amazing weather and tropical climates. Doesn't that sound great for February?
If Valentine's Day in St. Thomas sounds interesting to you, you will have to start planning - NOW! Depending on the days you decide to go, you may have a difficult time obtaining reservations at the most popular resorts in St. Thomas. This is because St. Thomas is known as one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. Scheduling your reservations ahead of time will ensure that you will be able to stay at the resort of your choice. If you want to avoid the Valentine's Day rush, you could go the week after and you might get better rates. The romance will be just as good, right?
When selecting your romantic destination, it is likely that you will take a number of factors into consideration. You may be wondering why St. Thomas is the perfect place for you and your partner to vacation. In addition to the above mentioned tropical climates, you will find that the scenery in St. Thomas is absolutely beautiful. When combined with a tropical climate, the ocean views are sure to create a romantic atmosphere.
When planning your honeymoon I would encourage you not to make the same mistake that most other couples make. This mistake involves picking a vacation destination that is overrun with children. Your Valentine's Day holiday is supposed to be a private, intimate, and romantic event. You may find it difficult to focus on romance when there are a large number of children running around the area. Another reason why St. Thomas is such a popular Valentine's Day destination is because a number of hotel resorts have age restrictions.
Vacationing at a resort that has an age restriction in place has an unlimited number of benefits. At these resorts you may find it easier to focus on your romance. In addition to restricting guests, many of these resorts cater specifically to couples. If you vacation at a resort that caters to couples, you are likely to see that the atmosphere is romantic. Many of these resorts create that atmosphere by offering ocean views and in-room Jacuzzis.
While on your adventure, it is likely that you will want private moments, but on the other hand, you may wish to get out and be active. St. Thomas has an unlimited number of activities that you can participate in. Many of these activities offer adventure and excitement. If you wish, you can enjoy a guided boat tour, snorkeling tour, or scuba diving tour.
In addition to fun filled adventures, you will see that St. Thomas offers a wide range of other activities. Swimming, boating, sunbathing, golfing, and spa visits are just a few of the many ways that you can fill up your day. At night, if you wish to party and socialize, you will find that St. Thomas is home to a number of trendy bars and nightclubs. These bars and nightclubs is the perfect way to closeout your evenings.
The above mentioned reasons are just a few of the many reasons why St. Thomas is the perfect place to schedule your Valentine's getaway. After comparing alternative destinations, it is likely that you will be back to schedule your St. Thomas Valentine's Day reservations.
