Authentic Florida’s Favorite Romantic Getaways

Ah, February … A month sprinkled with an extra serving of romance! Yes, chocolates and flowers are wonderful, but nothing beats a romantic getaway with your favorite person. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we put together a few of our favorite Authentic Florida romantic recommendations. These destinations are sure to warm your heart and put a continuous smile on your face. From two stunning state beaches designed for lovers (one happens to be pet-friendly) to stellar sunsets in the Southernmost Point of the USA to a horse carriage ride and B&B stay in the “Old City” to a fun night out at a retro drive-in movie theater, Florida offers an array of activities that will create lifetime memories with the ones you love.

Here are five recommendations for romantic places to visit in Florida:

Carriage Ride/B&B, St. Augustine, FL

What is better than staying in quaint B&B (breakfast & bed) in the famous St. Augustine downtown historic district where you are only steps away from some of the most historic sites in the USA? This is an ideal romantic weekend getaway any time of the year. Whether you prefer to stroll through the downtown historic district or enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride, you just can’t help but fall in love again with each other and the Old City. Check this out for a more in-depth look at romantic St. Augustine.

St. Augustine also has a variety of delectable dining selections (including Spanish, British, French, Greek and many more). There’s a great Facebook group called Auggie’s Fresh or Frightening Food Reviews. This group is made up primarily of locals who are brutally honest. They keep up with the latest and greatest restaurants in St. Augustine and we have found some awesome places and dishes thanks to this group.

Here you can find lots more information about St. Augustine.
