Ahhhh, L’Amore. The birds and the bees are doing their thing, your friends are showing off their engagement rings, and this year you’ve decided you want to do something special for that special someone. But, dinner and a show…well, that’s been done before. Like, every year. Probably every week. Teddy bears and chocolates are…fine but typical. However, this year, maybe you want to do something… big. You want to sweep that special someone off their feet! What about…a weekend getaway to a cute little boutique hotel, set right in the middle of some of the most beautiful ocean views in the world? Allow me to set the scene:
You’ve just arrived to the Summer Place Inn. You’re greeted by friendly agents, and a pretty lobby where, yes, you may immediately purchase wine. You check in, and head up to your room. Along the way, you notice the indoor heated pool. Some ideas spring to mind that you decide to save for later…Finally, you reach your destination and open the door, with your beau following close behind. Once inside, you find a quaint, attractive room waiting for you, complete with a comfy, king-sized bed. What’s that on the table? Why, it’s champagne, chilled and inviting, just waiting to tickle your taste buds. And, next to that a box of delicious chocolates. There’s also a personal note, welcoming you both to the beautiful and romantic sea-side of Destin, Florida. Kicking off your shoes, you and your paramour decide to take a little time to settle in and relax.
A little while later, you’re driving alongside pale, soft, cream colored beaches (tempting you, in their own unique fashion, to come curl your toes in the sand) as you make your way to dinner…Perhaps, tonight you’re eating at one of our award-winning seafood restaurants like ‘The Back Porch’ (Hey, there’s a reason that tv shows tend to use lobster when depicting dates of a romantic nature); or, maybe you’ve decided to try out one of our other award winning restaurants, like Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. Wherever you’ve decided to eat, you sit down to enjoy an intimate meal as the blue sky slowly fades into a stunning, mutli-colored sunset; and the city’s night life outside your window lazily stretches it’s arms and awakens.
Afterwards: You walk to your car, holding hands with your significant other, and consider what to do next. You think “maybe we should go dancing and get a little crazy. Or perhaps, we can take it easy and catch a movie.” You may even find yourself saying “when in Florida, do as the Floridians do,” And decide to see a gator show and get the blood pumping; Or spend the night on a rented boat, under the stars. The possibilities are nearly endless. And although, this time, it’s a Valentines kind of weekend; There is always something new and exciting to try here that’s specific to each season. After all, romance can happen anytime. As a matter of fact, we want you to feel the love whenever you can, as much as you can, so we offer this package throughout the year. What can we say, we love Love. And, if what you desire is a lovely time with the one you desire, we are just a button click away.
