Three romantic getaways to visit this Valentines day

This is the season for baecations. I mean just scroll through your Instagram, Facebook or Twitter timeline and chances are you will come across a few pictures of couples smooching, cuddling or just hanging out at some foreign location enjoying a romantic getaway.

With it being winter in the northern hemisphere, many of the most appetizing destinations in the world are in “off-season” meaning that hotel prices (and other holiday-related costs) are lower than usual.

Santorini, GreeceAnd who would blame him — Santorini, Greece is a truly magical destination. A sunset view over its sparkling blue Aegean Sea is arguably one of the most romantic sights in all of Europe.

New York City, New York

New York might not immediately strike you as a romantic city but, this time of year, it really is.

New York City, New YorkThe snow, the holiday displays that adorn virtually each corner of the city and the energy of the city make this a prime spot for a baecation this time of year.
