The weather may be cold but hearts are warm as we approach that great American holiday known as Valentine’s Day. Sure, flowers and candy – and of course, jewelery – are nice, but why not mix it up a bit with something different? Here are two ideas:
Belle Grove Plantation Bed & Breakfast: If history, charm and killer sunsets are high on your list of favorite things, take a trip to King George (just east of Fredericksburg) and spend Valentine’s at the home of President James Madison on the banks of the Rappahannock River. Innkeeper Michelle Darnell has just two suites left at this historic home, now open to the public as a bed & breakfast. Mention Brides & Weddings when you book yours and save 20%! To make your reservation, call 540.621.7340 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. In the mood to tie the knot? Ask about the special Valentine’s Vows package.
If dinner and a movie are more your thing, then head out to Winchester for Red Carpet Romance at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, sponsored by Go Blue Ridge Travel. Enjoy a delicious four-course dinner and then sit back and watch the movie “Winter’s Tale”. Beforehand, toast your love at the champagne reception and take a pic of you and your sweetie in the photo booth. Don’t feel like driving back after the show? The Comfort Inn, located next door to the theater, has a special room rate. For details, visit the theater’s website.
