Plan a luxury vacation weekend in the Pacific Northwest for your favorite valentine this winter. At TMI Tours of Coeur dAlene, Idaho, we are always looking for uniquie ideas for couples who enjoy the great outdoors. What better way to suprise your “special someone” than with a weekend get-a-way to somewhere exciting and remote. Below are some of my favorite romantic vacation ideas for this Valentines Day.
Nightrider Snow Mobile Tour
Spokane, Washington is a beautiful city with luxurious hotels and fabulous dining opportunities downtown and along the riverfront. The Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park is a short 30 mile drive from downtown and offers great day and night activities. Try the Nightrider Snowmobile Dinner Tour which includes snowmobile rental for two, 3 hour snowmobile guided tour from 5:00pm -8:00pm and ends with a steak, chicken or salmon dinner at Bear Creek Lodge. Riding experience is not necessary.
Pacific Ocean Storm Watching
Winter brings the most spectacular ocean storms ashore at the Pacific Rim National Park on the west coast of British Columbia. Resorts cater to couples looking for a good storm, offering complimentary rain slickers and boots as well as floor to ceiling windows in their restaurants and lounges that face the raging sea. What could be better than beachcombing for treasure washed up after a great storm! Enjoy 2 night packages that include luxurious accomodations, rain gear for two, specialty ‘stormwatchers’ coffees in the lounge and a 3-hour guided nature walk with a local naturalist.
Suite Indulgence on Lake Coeur d’Alene
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is famous for it’s beautiful lake, it’s quaint downtown and mountains that seem to go on forever. The perfect romantic get-a-way includes a stay at the Coeur d’Alene Resort in their Signature Lake Tower rooms. Enjoy fireplace accomodations with fantastic lakeviews, champagne and strawberries upon arrival as well as dining credits and complimentary spa services. Be sure to take a stroll downtown for fun shopping and lively entertainment.
Wine-tasting along the Columbia River Gorge
The mild climate of the Washington State wine country allows these tours to operate year round and the range of unique accomodations make this destination a perfect get-a-way for any couple. Imagine a resort poised 900 feet above the Columbia River surrounded by estate vineyards and fragrant orchards. Romance packages include 1 night in a cozy cliffehouse or cavern room, breakfast for two and a bottle of CaveB wine, signed by Winemaker Freddy Arrendondo. For the adventurous, enjoy a night in a Ranch style Bed and Breakfast that includes a wine-tasting tour on horseback. Enjoy a trail ride through the vineyards to nearby wineries, wine tasting at selected tasting rooms, a picnic lunch and free delivery of your wine purchases.
While this is not in the Pacific Northwest, what a great way to say “I love you” to a NASCAR fan. Race day is February 14th this year in Daytona Beach, Florida and I can’t think of a better place to visit in February. Packages include roundtrip airfare, rental car, tickets to the race and hotel accomodations.
Space is limited and subject to availability for all of these package ideas. Call Linda Bruno or Rhonda Sand at TMI Tours for information on any of our Valentines Day specials for 2010. We are your unique vacation specialist in the Pacific Northwest. 1-800-975-7775 or [email protected]
