What’s not to like about Miami? If you have your eye on traveling to Miami during Valentine’s Day, remember one thing: it’s hot! The weather isn’t the only thing that’s warm when it comes to this city: the culture and the people simmer with an inner heat that has to be experienced directly in order to be believed. Miami is a diverse city filled with people from all walks of life, with a rich Spanish culture serving as a strong backdrop. Make sure that you take the time to check out any of the tango parlors, since tango focuses on the closeness between dance partners. How romantic!
If you live in the northern hemisphere, then Valentine’s Day is going to be at least a little bit chilly for you. However, if you decide to travel down to Australia you’ll find a much warmer climate waiting for you. It’s worth the long plane ride for you and your sweetie to enjoy the best of the “land down under”. The friendliness of the people that call Sydney home on a daily basis makes it really worth giving a closer look — you’ll be hard pressed to find a city filled with nicer people.
3. Las Vegas
Some might feel that Las Vegas is too over the top to list as a Valentine’s Day vacation destination, but that’s the main quality that makes Vegas such a fun place to visit! If you thought New York City never sleeps, you’ve never seen Vegas – it is truly a place that has no concept of bedtime at all. In the daytime, there are plenty of conventions, shops, museums and shows to choose from. At night, you’ll have your pick of casino attractions, even more shows, and world class cuisine from around the world.
Prague is the heart of the Czech Republic, and has been on many travel lists for decades because of the unique charm of the city. You’ll enjoy this city if you’re into rich history and even richer food. If you really want to go all out, take a day trip down the river to get a unique perspective on this centuries-old city.
Antigua has long been a paradise and safe haven for travelers. The weather is not only friendly, but the culture seems to welcome visitors by default. This is a great Valentine’s Day hotspot because you can sit on the beach, or even go snorkeling.

All things considered, deciding to travel is a great idea on Valentine’s Day. If you decide to take the plunge, don’t forget to give yourself a couple of days after Valentine’s Day to enjoy the best of any city you choose to visit. You’ll come back refreshed and ready for another year of enjoying life with your special lady!
