Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year, so that means we have the whole weekend to spend enjoying it!

1.) Take a stroll through a charming Downtown Area. Explore wine shops, unique shopping boutiques and enjoy delicious dining options throughout Lake County’s enchanting downtown areas. Take your time and stop in one of a kind coffee shops, and enjoy the lovable scenes of historic buildings throughout Historic Antioch, Grayslake, Libertyville Mainstreet, Lake Forest, and Historic Long Grove.

2.) The Illinois Beach Resort in Zion offers panoramic views of Lake Michigan’s beautiful shoreline. The natural landscape along beach bring a peaceful and serene feeling during the winter months. Cozy up for the night by booking their Romance at the Beach package.
3.) Nothing’s more romantic than wine. Let the experts at Lynfred Winery or Valentino’s Vineyard and Winery pick “your” special wine as a couple. Sample wine with grapes grown right here in Lake County at Valentino’s, and relive this one of a kind experience in years to come by celebrating special occasions with “your” wine.
4.) A romantic fine dining experience never goes wrong. Romantic music playing, a fireplace rustling in the corner, white linen table cloths and beautiful flowers help set the scene. The delicious food doesn’t hurt either. Pick from an array of options and find the perfect romantic dining experience for you on our fine dining page.
5.) For the couple who’s looking to get away from it all, consider a romantic stroll through the Chicago Botanic Gardens. With over 350 acres of perfectly designed gardens, you’re bound to find a special alone moment to share. Or take a temporary vacation to a tropical getaway in their indoor Orchid Show.
