Top Locations to Propose in Florida This Valentine's Day

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2011) - Valentine's Day is fast approaching – and contrary to what some sections of the media might have us believe, romance is very much alive. Increasingly, couples are planning to mark February 14th with that special romantic break.

And where better for a lovers' holiday than Florida? Jim Shore, Sales Director at the Florida holiday specialists Florida4Less outlined some of the romantic attractions the Sunshine State has to offer on February 14th.

"Everyone knows that Florida is a fantastic holiday destination," Jim said, "But it's becoming more and more popular for that perfect romantic break. And if you're looking for somewhere to propose, I can't think of anywhere better."

From Jacksonville and Tallahassee in the north of the state to the Florida Keys on the Gulf of Mexico, Florida is teeming with romantic destinations and special events for Valentine's Day.

"Florida has some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world," said Jim, "And there aren't many more romantic things to do than cruise round the Keys as the sun goes down. Some of the cruise companies will include a cordon-bleu chef, so you can have an intimate dinner for two as you watch the sun set over the ocean."

If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land you can spend a romantic day at Walt Disney World – where they'll even carpet your hotel room with rose petals – or you can simply take a picnic down to any of the beautiful gardens in Orlando or Miami. And whatever your taste in music, you won't have to go far to find an open-air concert!

Feeling more energetic? Then you can spend Valentine's Day water ski-ing, paragliding, white water rafting, or mastering a jet-ski. If it involves sport and water, then there's simply no better place than Florida.

And if you've finally decided that Florida is the perfect place to pop the question…where should you go down on one knee?

"Well," said Jim, "you can take a helicopter ride, ask your beloved to look out of the window and she'll see 'marry me' written in the sand. You can go up in a balloon and pop the question as you float over Orlando. But if I had to choose one…there's an endless, white sand beach at Honeymoon Island. Just the two of you, the waves breaking gently on the shore and the sun sinking into the ocean. Florida has to be the most romantic place in the world…"
