It seems as if almost before you have put away the last wreath, opened the last present, or drank the last bottle of champagne, Valentine’s Day arrives with the pressure of finding the perfect gift for that special person who deserves so much! Love isn’t always an easy road, and we want to do what we can to show the ones we love how grateful we are that they have stuck by us, and although candy and flowers are a sweet gesture, maybe this year is the time to go big with a weekend getaway to our favorite mountain town of Hood River. Oregon in February will bring out the stars in your bride’s eyes, and these reasons to spend your long Hood River Valentine’s Day weekend here will put an extra spark in a relationship you cherish!
Candy is dandy but a really good bottle of wine shows how much you care! Hood River is an integral part of the Northwest wine country, and the variety of vineyards and tasting rooms ensure that you and your Valentine will have plenty to smile about! A private tasting from Cathedral Ridge Winery offers an intimate experience that is both educational and delicious! Located at 4200 Post Canyon Drive, reservations are required for this special tour, so plan ahead by calling 1-800-516-8710
A waterfall is a breathtaking sight to behold at any time of the year, but a frozen waterfall will stun and amaze. Bundle up a for a winter wonderland hike to Tamanawas Falls when the temperatures drop below zero. The trail to the falls is accessible in the winter, and because the journey is as important as the destination, holding hands and quiet conversation as you walk will bring back memories of the days early in your relationship when walks together were a commonplace and much-loved event!
A Dinner to Remember
The best meals are remembered long after the last bite has been finished, and when looking for a special place to take your sweetheart for a taste of romance and a sip of something special, we recommend Stonehedge Gardens at 3405 Wine Country Avenue. Also a wedding venue (Considering renewing your vows? This would be the place to do so!), this converted farmhouse is famous throughout the state for its romance, casual elegance, and of course, the delicious meals they offer!
