There is a lot going on in February. Not only is it Black History Month, but it’s also one of the last months of winter and a month with the most romantic holiday, Valentine’s Day. With so many things to celebrate in February, we’ve put together a list of vacations where you can take advantage of these celebrations, experiences, and so much more.
The Daytona 500 race is held in Daytona, Florida, on February 16. Spend the whole day cheering on your favorite driver at this 500-mile-long NASCAR motor race, then return to a nearby hotel called DAYTONA, which pays homage to the racing history of Daytona with vintage cars in the lobby and a bar made of engine pistons. If you stay beyond the race, check out hot spots like the beach and the Daytona Boardwalk.
Grab your partner and head to Sintra, Portugal, this Valentine’s Day. The pastel-colored town is home to gallant palaces and scenic beaches with gorgeous rock formations. Add to the magic by staying in a boutique hotel, taking a hike in the green woods of the nearby mountains, and enjoying platters of seafood and great wine.
Temecula is a hidden gem in California wine country. Book a stay at the South Coast Winery Resort & Spa to enjoy soaking tubs, massages, farm-to-table meals, and a vineyard at your doorstep. You might also want to book a hot air balloon experience or just spend time visiting a variety of wineries throughout the area.
