Romance in the Sunshine State

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

If you are looking to wrap up the summer with a romantic getaway, Florida is the place to go. There are innumerable spots throughout the state that will soften even the most hardened of hearts.

Amor I love you

Nothing says "I love you" like a romantic getaway in Florida.

Lovers Key State Park, in SW Florida, is a good place to start. Long accessed only by boats, Lovers Key is now one of four barrier islands that make up this state park. Walk hand in hand along sandy beaches, rent a canoe or kayak and paddle among dolphin and manatee, or go for a relaxing bike ride along a trail that traverses the four islands. There are few places so lovely to watch the sun set.

Amelia Island, in NE Florida, is another excellent spot for a Florida romantic getaway. Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through the historic district and toast one another in the Palace Saloon, Florida’s oldest continually operating bar. Gallop up the beach together on horseback, the wind whipping through your hair. This is romance like you find in the movies, but it’s real.

If it is called Venice, it has to be romantic. The Venice of Central West Florida boasts a lovely historic downtown and many miles of uninterrupted sandy beaches. You’ll find quaint restaurants in which to linger over a lengthy dinner, and endless opportunities to play together in the sun.

The weather in much of the country is unpredictable these days; cloudy days are lowering spirits on the west coast, and the upper mid west is suffering from relentless rain. Escape from all that with a romantic getaway in Florida as soon as possible. Your sweetie will thank you.
