With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, now is the time to take advantage of living in the beautiful state of Colorado and share a special weekend getaway with your sweetheart.

Whether you’re a couple of adventure seekers or are simply wanting to spend some quality time together, there are endless romantic getaway options right outside your door.

  1. Downtown dwelling

The Mile High City offers something for everyone. Home to seven professional sports teams and a thriving arts and cultural scene, it’s easy to make lasting memories on any given weekend. Stay downtown, in the Lower Highlands (LoHi) neighborhood or River North Art District (RiNo) district to be walking distance to shows, the best restaurants, breweries and night life. Explore even more to do in Denver here .

  1. Mountain retreat

If you and your valentine enjoy winter adventures, a mountain escape is perfect for a weekend away! Opt for your favorite resort or venture somewhere new to enjoy outdoor winter activities during the day, like snowshoeing, skiing and skating, and relax at night with drinks and hot tubbing. Make the weekend extra special with a horse-drawn carriage ride to dinner. Find a Colorado cabin perfect for any getaway here .

  1. Heat things up

If you’re over the winter chill, a weekend spent soaking in hot springs will certainly warm you up and lift your spirits. Enjoy the thermal benefits of relaxing in mineral-rich water, relieve pain and aches and experience stress relief all while spending time with your loved one. Add on a couple’s massage for even more serenity.

Check out Iron Mountain Hot Springs  in Glenwood Springs, Strawberry Park Hot Springs  in Steamboat Springs or Yampah Spa  in Glenwood Springs, which feature spa services in underground geothermal caves.

  1. Sweet staycation

Strapped for time or looking to stay close to home? A staycation — or spending time in your own city from a new perspective — could be the perfect way to spend a weekend with your special someone.

The best part of a staycation is you can completely tailor it to your needs. Whether you’re looking to stay in and relax or seize the night life, experiencing your city free from the distractions of home is priceless. Hotel Tonight  caters to late bookers looking for the best deals and Airbnb  is a great option if you’re looking for more space. Don’t forget to switch your phone to airplane mode. You’re on vacation after all!
