Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and if you're still stuck on finding the perfect romantic outing for you and that special someone, look no further. We've compiled a list of some of the best romantic date ideas in Southern Vermont for you to use how you will. And before you ask, yes, it's OK to pretend you thought of them yourself.
Uncork Some Romance
No romantic date would be complete without a bottle of wine to share, so why not make the wine the centerpiece of the date? At Honora Winery in Jacksonville, Vermont, you can do just that. Honora offers private tasting tours to sample their wines and learn about the history of their vineyard, a Five Star, Diamond Award-winning facility.
Let Your Love Run Wild
Looking for something a bit more adventurous in a romantic date? How about a dogsled ride for two? Husky Works Mushing Company, a few miles north of Wilmington, lets you and a loved one take an exciting romp through the wilderness with a team of real-life Siberian Huskies. These sled dogs are the real deal, and they'll take you on a fun and romantic journey through the scenic snowy woods of Southern Vermont.
De-Stress, The Romantic Way
If adventure isn't what you had in mind, maybe relaxation is? You and your special someone can enjoy a day of peaceful bliss at the Naturespa at Mount Snow's Grand Summit Hotel with a fantastic couple's massage. The Naturespa offers a variety of massage packages, including hot stone massage and a Thai massage for two, where an instructor shows you how to perform the art of Thai massage on your partner.
Night Time is the Right Time
Who says your day of romance has to stop when the sun goes down? With a private nighttime snowshoe tour at Stratton, you can still have fun long after darkness falls. With a variety of tours available, including walks to a campfire next to a mountain stream or a field walk to an historic stone cabin, you can design your own evening of fun.
No matter what you choose to do on your romantic excursion, you can round out your day with a stay in a premium Vermont rental home. The extra space and sumptuous accommodations will make your stay far more comfortable than any hotel, guaranteed.
