Ways a true love will make my heart race on Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day, I’m single, yet I have plenty of ideas for how a special someone could sweep me off my feet in celebrating the holiday of romance. Whether nearby or far off, spending time with a love interest in these settings would make a date spot one seriously heart-melting experience.

The Moshulu ~ I love history, including sites with maritime tales. Docked at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, this historic tall ship is quite a place to win my heart with dinner out on the water. Lights reflecting on the Delaware River’s gently rippling surface would add extra ambiance to a beautiful evening.

Gone Country ~ There’s always been a side of me that loves horses and donning cowgirl boots; red ones for Valentine’s Day. A guy who loves country girl spirit can get my heart beating faster anywhere we’d share an adventure on horseback.

Cove Resorts ~ A touch of snowfall in the Poconos, surrounding a suite filled with cozy amenities for two inspires me to crave winter. I’d surely enjoy fun on the slopes with a special guy, then warming up by a fire together and clinking wine glasses to our love.

The Melting Pot ~ Starting the night with indulgent chocolate covered strawberries will melt my heart. It’s the perfect sensuous dessert for a couple’s sense of romance, paired with the sparkle of champagne.

Camping or Glamping ~ The summer person I usually am, I’d want to visit a park in one of the southern states for a romantic getaway in nature. One with waterfalls appeals to me even more, as a loved one and I hike trails to take in such beautiful sights. Another favorite idea is beach camping, spending time together while listening to the sound of waves rolling in.

Keeping a Lighthouse ~ Well, sort of. A love interest would make my eyes light up at the idea of staying at one of these historic beacons. Watching a ship pass by, wondering together in the mystery of its seafaring path conjures a perfect coastal romance for me. Maybe a special someone and I would take in the sight of vessels while snuggling close on a porch swing. Maybe we’d catch a glimpse over a candlelit dinner, between gazing into each other’s eyes.

Private Drive-In ~ My heart would be set afire for a guy who arranges watching a romantic movie projected onto an old barn. I saw this on an episode of “Gilmore Girls” and fell in love with such an idea for cuddling close. If only I could live out that scene with a dream guy in my dream car, a red ’67 Camaro. I imagine using that cool ride because it was part of a favorite long-ago daydream.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
