Cards? Flowers? Candies?
Change it up this year! Plan a memorable Valentine’s getaway in Florence—Oregon’s Coastal Playground!
Book a riverfront room or oceanfront room in Florence! Come stay in a romantic B&B!
Enjoy romantic walks in the forest or on long stretches of uncrowded beaches. Find a heart-shaped stone or shell in the sand. Hike a dune. Get a little sand in your pants.
Treat your sweets to a fresh catch-of-the-day or a special surf-and-turf combo dinner at one of Florence’s many excellent restaurants. You’ll find a great variety of local, international, and unique fusion foods in Historic Old Town and all around town.
Over the last several years Americans have spent about $20 billion on Valentine’s Day, according to the National Retail Federation. Loved ones are expected to spend $2 billion on flowers, more than $1.7 billion on candy, and approximately $1 billion on pre-printed cards.
Don’t be predictable.
Add a new layer of romance. Get out of town!
Many of our lodgings have holiday specials, some of which run all month long!
If you can’t make it on Valentine’s Day itself (on a Wednesday this year), come the weekend before or after! Insider’s tip: Keep in mind many of our local lodgings have some great midweek rates. Call their front desks to ask.
The five most common items purchased for the holiday and their nationwide average prices, according to Bankrate.com, are a box of chocolates ($15.11), diamond earrings ($323.26), a dozen roses ($41.66), dinner for two ($80.46), and a bottle of champagne ($51.54).
A memorable overnight trip to Florence will probably cost you less than those earrings, and you can get all the rest of the obligatory accoutrements here in town and have them delivered to your room. Some lodgings have Valentine’s packages that include goodies like this. Call in advance to learn more.
