Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a snowy, winter escape to Lake Tahoe for Valentine’s Day. And nothing says romance like starting your day in peaceful luxury as you cozy up in your private villa at Northstar Lodge or One Village Place by Welk Resorts. You and your sweetheart can then spend a peaceful day in the stunning Northstar Village as you shop local boutiques, hold hands as you skate around the ice rink, or take in a movie. If fresh snow is more your style, you can experience exhilarating adventures together on the world-class slopes.

The nightlife around Lake Tahoe provides even more romantic ideas for Valentine’s Day that you should be excited to try. Just because the days are shorter in winter, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy more time outdoors together. Why not try a romantic outing snowshoeing through stunning scenery at twilight or during an evening of stargazing? For intimate fine dining, your options include gourmet dinners prepared by talented chefs at the Ritz-Carlton to intimate wine tasting options at Petra and other great wine bars. You can also enjoy the vibrant aprés-ski dining options and events on the mountain.

Welk Resorts San Diego

Sunny Southern California offers gorgeous weather and amazing variety for couples to explore and enjoy time with each other. Welk Resorts San Diego has a number of onsite offerings to enjoy and is only a short drive away from relaxed, intimate activities to try. When staying here, you can start your day with an easy lounge by one of our multiple pools, and even set time aside for a peaceful pampering at Elevate Spa.

You can also spend your afternoon onsite with our INSPIRED For You™ team who has creative romantic ideas for Valentine’s Day—like the chance to make your own themed treats. If you decide to head into the neighboring area for a date, just up the freeway, you can spend a comfortable afternoon tasting local varieties of wine as you relax at gorgeous wineries, overlooking the rolling hills and scenic vineyards of Temecula. In the evening, you can find a number of unique options, all right on property. If you and your sweetheart love live performances, you can take in a show at our intimate Welk Resort Theatre. And for a romantic meal, our executive chef at Canyon Grille has created a decadent, multi-course meal full of delicious flavors and indulgent options for couples.

Desert Oasis

For a warm, desert getaway this Valentine’s Day, the Palm Springs area is the answer. And no place is a better option to be close to all the great activities and sites like Desert Oasis by Welk Resorts. During your stay, you and your sweetheart can can spend your day relaxing and lounging by the pool or basking in the sun with a round of golf. For a unique evening, you can join our INSPIRED for You team, kicking back in style as you sip on your drink at the Prohibition Speakeasy.
