Ahhh, the month of love! Did you forget that sandwiched right in between this weekend and next is Valentine’s Day? Don’t fret, my friend, I’ve got you covered! With two weekends for a chance to have a mini getaway with someone you love, here are some quick ideas (and places to stay from throughout 2017’s posts!) to sweep your loved one off his or her feet this year! Whether it’s with your Sig O, a best friend or just you, here are some ways to Share the Love… <3
Share the love of: DONUTS!
Enjoy Butler County’s Donut Trail! With 12 delicious places to pick up a donut along this fun trail in SW Ohio, you’ll definitely need a place to stay to break up the trip. Check out the newly renovated Cincinnati Marriott North! Looking for something else to make it a weekend trip and work off some of those donut calories? Take a swing at Ohio’s first TopGolf, just across the street! But whatever you do, don’t forget your passport!
Share the love of: MUSIC
When was the last time you had a full Jazz experience? Last February, we celebrated Valentine’s Day with a trip to Miamisburg (where?? Yes!). The Blue Note Bistro & Lounge is about as authentic as you can find, specially in Ohio. The music, the food, and the atmosphere all equal love at first site. Obviously, after a late night out, you’ll need a comfortable place to stay. Check out the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dayton Mall I-675, just down the road, or make a weekend out of it! Just a little farther away in quaint Yellow Springs, you’ll find the Mills Park Hotel.
Share the love of: WINE!
Did you know the country’s Best Wine Country Hotel is in OHIO? Yep! That’s right, according to USA Today’s 10Best Reader’s Choice Awards. So if you love wine, share the weekend with your loved one at the Villas at Gervasi Vineyard.
Thinking you want to mix wine and water…as in the lake? Consider grabbing a cottage in Ohio’s actual wine country in the far NE corner of the state, near Geneva-on-the-Lake. Vineyard Woods is a new cabin property, nestled among Ohio’s vineyards.
Share the love of: MUSEUMS
Why not just stay in one? Did you know Ohio has a Museum Hotel? That’s right! You can enjoy it all in one. The 21C Museum Hotel in downtown Cincinnati is the best place to experience contemporary art and a beautiful overnight stay. Don’t miss dinner at one of the fantastic restaurants near by, like Jeff Ruby’s or Boca. (My personal favorites – you WILL need reservations!)
Share the love of: PAMPERING
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could escape to somewhere secluded where you could just unwind, relax and just *be*. There is. Enter the Sebring Mansion & Spa, in Sebring, OH. The Sebring Mansion is one of the most romantic places I have ever visited in our great state. The guest rooms are immaculate and custom, each with their own whirlpool tub. There is a full service spa, including indoor/outdoor therapy pools. Sebring Manion is an adults-only facility.
