January 27, 2022 — Love is in the air! Shelves are stocked with heart shaped boxes, floral shops are cranking out bountiful bouquets, and restaurants are gearing up for weekend-long service filled with two-tops enjoying artfully prepared multi-course meals. This Valentine’s Day, take a more relaxed and unique approach to the lover’s holiday by planning a road trip or weekend getaway with your better half.

From New Hope to Philadelphia, two of Pennsylvania’s landmark locations for sightseeing, culinary finds, and hidden historical gems welcomes lovebirds near and far to experience a romantic riverside stay at Ghost Light Inn or Carriage House of New Hope in Bucks County, and an exclusive Valentine’s-themed overnight stay at the upscale, contemporary Hyatt Centric Center City Philadelphia, both destinations easily accessible from Philadelphia, NYC, Boston, and beyond.
