Florida Keys in February
With less than 2 inches of precipitation on average during the month, Key West, FL is one of the best places to holiday in Florida (and the U.S.!) in February.

The Southernmost Hotel - at the quiet end of Duval Street, this romantic inn is custom made for couples getaways in the Keys.

Exotic & Romantic February Vacation in Dubai- it's in the Middle East, but don't worry, Dubai is perhaps the safest destination in that part of the world. It's a long flight from the U.S. or Canada, but it is a travel experience not to be missed. February is a great time to go to Dubai because temperatures are quite comfortable (daytime highs of around 25 C or 77 F) and humidity is low compared to other times of the year.
Valentines Day Cruise Deals- February is a good month for a warm winter cruise in the Caribbean or South Pacific. Cruisecompete.com has cruises just for lovebirds in February (and over 100 agencies bid to give you the lowest quote).
Aston at the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach, Maui - we know lots of couples who have had fantastic February vacations in Maui. Whale-watching season is at it's best, weather is dependably good (highs of 73 F), and it's just before the spring break season.
Valentines Day Getaways to Carmel, California - come to this part of the Central California Coast in mid-February 2018, and you'll find low season discounts, fewer tourists, and the rugged California coast that's just as beautiful year-round.
Bahamas Beach Vacations in February - The Bahamas has miles and miles of white and pink sand beaches! The February weather is hot, and so are the deals on a romantic all-inclusive resort vacation in February 2018.
South Padre Island - this attractive destination on the Texas Gulf Coast enjoys high temps of about 71 F during the month, and usually low amounts of rain. But the best reason to plan on this month? It's a romantic February vacation before the Spring Break crowds arrive in March!
