Romantic Destinations in Florida
What couple doesn't want to get away to that sunny Florida beach, where they can just sit and enjoy each other's company? Florida is one of the most commonly visited states in the United States by families as well as lovers, and it is a great spot to enjoy the beauty and relaxation of a tropical vacation while staying in the US. The historical significance of such spots as Key West and St. Augustine, as well as the amusement of the areas around the Disney Resort in Orlando are big draws to couples looking for a place to have fun.
There are many romantic destinations in Florida, because different spots all throughout the state appeal to a diverse number of people. St. Augustine is the oldest city in Florida, and in fact, it is the oldest European city in the United States. A trip here means you can step back in time, and enjoy the antique charms of one of the many bed and breakfast establishments located in the city. One of the spots that is best known for romance in St. Augustine is the Bayfront Westcott House bed and breakfast.
The Westcott House, as it is usually known, is located in the historic district of St. Augustine, overlooking Mantanzas Bay and the Bridge of Lions. Built in the mid 1800's, this building is within walking distance of both the marina and the pristine beaches of St. Augustine, as well as many gourmet restaurants and quaint shops. While the building itself has been completely redone, the Westcott House retains its link to the past with decorations that remind you of the history of the city. Modern amenities, such as queen to king size beds, phones, cable TV and air conditioning assure you will have a pleasant stay.
As far as romantic destinations in Florida go, it doesn't get much more romantic that the Bayfront Westcott House's Romance package. For an additional fee (on top of the room rate), the Westcott House will be happy to provide you with chilled champagne upon arrival, scented candles lit in your room and a dozen roses to grace your accommodations. You will also be treated to a carriage ride through the streets of St. Augustine on a historic tour, and a Ghost Walk is even part of the package on weekends (nothing brings a couple closer together than being scared!).
Florida is the perfect place for your next romantic holiday, and whether you are planning to have a short or long stay, St. Augustine is a great city to visit. The historic and antique aspect of the inns and resorts here is a great backdrop for romance.
