Seasonal Frequently Asked Question:
Question: Valentines Day Weekend Trip - We are considering taking a long weekend trip over Valentines Day but are concerned there will be nothing to do in the off-season. Can you find enough sites to see or things to do for a 4 - 5 day trip in February?
Answer: If your are looking for top entertainment, excellent restaurants, romantic spa's and some gambling, Atlantic City has plenty to offer. Hotels with romantic Spa packages include Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and Seaview Golf Resort & Spa in Nearby Gallaway, NJ
For a more subdued experience, Cape May has many hotels and B&Bs that remain open and offer Valentine Day weekend specials which often include a trip to the spa, a massage or a free dinner wrapped up in the package.
