Romantic Florida Vacations Spots

 Florida is a Southern state in the United States. A long, low peninsula between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, Florida is bordered by Georgia and Alabama. Florida is known as the Sunshine State. "Florida" is a Spanish adjective which means "flowery" because it was discovered by Spanish explorers during the Easter season, or Pascua Florida in Spanish. Much of the state of Florida is situated on a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. Its geography is marked by a coastline, by the omnipresence of water and the threat of hurricanes. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States.

 Everyone has dreamed of that perfect romantic vacation, honeymoon, or getaway – warm tropical breezes, beautiful sunsets, exquisite dining, luxurious accommodations – alone with your spouse. Whether your dream includes an oceanfront cottage with strolls and picnics on the beach, or a luxurious penthouse, fine dining and dancing in the moonlight, you're sure to be inspired by these ideas. Balmy breezes, white powdery sand, and year-round sunshine make Florida's beaches the most sought-after vacation destinations. Whether you seek a secluded spot for a weekend getaway or a beautiful backdrop for a romantic weekend or honeymoon, it's unforgettable. One of the most romantic vacation destinations for the beach is Southwest Florida's The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel. In fact, it even boasts the state's most romantic park, Lovers Key, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico; and, Captiva Island has been ranked as one of the country's most romantic beaches by Dr. Beach, Stephen Leatherman, Ph.D., recognized as the nation's foremost beach authority. Disney is hardly secluded, but it can be romantic – it is simply up to the accommodations you choose. My choices would be Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa or Wilderness Lodge. The Grand Floridian has the Victorian opulence and pampering service of a bygone era, while the Wilderness Lodge is reminiscent of the park lodges of America's Great Northwest. Both offer a variety of activity and dining experiences – enough that you'd never have to leave the resort unless you wanted to.

 At least once in your life you ought to do something outrageously romantic – something you'll both remember for the rest of your lives. The luxurious accommodations and gourmet dining are expensive, but for those who want to splurge... the oceanfront Ritz-Carlton in Palm Beach is the place. The understated elegance of the Mediterranean architecture is the perfect romantic setting for a special getaway. You'll be wishing upon your lucky stars as you and your sweetheart enjoy an evening of dinner and dancing aboard the Starlite Majesty Dining Yacht. Elegant decor, fine dining, first-rate musicians, and an ever-changing water view on smooth inland waters, all combine to make a truly memorable night.

Tips and comments:

 In Florida, romance is anything you want it to be. An intimate vacation awaits you, whether it's a waterside sunset, a day at the spa or an outdoors activity for two. Whether you are up for a romantic sunrise or a romantic sunset Florida can provide the best of both worlds. Nicely positioned in a climate that is almost always warm and cozy you can enjoy the city lights or the country shore, sunbathed shores and full moon nights.
