We asked our new RVND™ 7720 LM for directions to Valentine’s Day destinations and found routes to wineries, natural wonders, small towns, and romantic places galore. Pack your RV and hit the open road for these beautiful and charming stops that are sure to make your sweetie pie swoon.

Wineries that will wow her:

  • Oliver Winery, Indiana: This Bloomington wine destination’s pairing art and dance with their vino this Valentine’s Day. Check out their February events for more great date ideas.
  • Pend d’Oreille Winery, Idaho: With one of our most beautiful small towns as a backdrop, this destination features fine wine, community events, and natural beauty. Wine and dine with tapas or pizza, too.
  • Blue Mountain Winery, Washington: Tour this gorgeous vineyard and enjoy the fruits of their labors at Tranche Cellars in Walla Walla, both a friendly and foodie town in our rallies.
  • Habersham Winery, Georgia: One of the state’s oldest wineries, Habersham features group tours, tastings, and a gift shop within Nacoochee Village.

Places where he’ll feel on top of the world:

  • High Point State Park, New Jersey: This state park provides a panoramic view of three states from New Jersey’s highest point at 1,803-feet above sea level. Enjoy hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, and camping among woods, trails, and three lakes, in addition to a war memorial dedicated to New Jersey’s military heroes.
  • Gallatin National Forest, Montana: Among the forest’s six mountain ranges, discover Granite Peak, the highest point in Montana at 12,799 feet. The 1.8 million acre forest gives opportunity to hike, camp, hunt, fish, and even ski and snowmobile this time of year.
  • Carson National Forest, New Mexico: Outdoorsy couples have every option imaginable here from camping, fishing, mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, motorcycling, climbing, hiking, and horseback riding in the warmer months to snowshoeing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and skiing in any of three areas in the winter. Access the state’s highest point, Wheeler’s Peak, from Taos Ski Valley or the Red River Ski Area to get a view from 13,161 feet.
  • Acadia National Park, Maine: Take in wildlife, hiking, and boating at the home of Cadillac Mountain, the highest peak on the eastern seaboard, at 1,528 feet. Here you can camp, bike, hike, climb, or take a guided tour in one of the country’s most popular parks.

Waterfalls to make her weak in the knees:

  • Fall Hollow Trail, Tennessee: A five-minute walk off the Natchez Trace Parkway will take you to a viewing platform to see a small waterfall and continues on past numerous small cascades.
  • Bridal Veil Falls State Park, Oregon: This park features a hiking trail to a waterfall, a handicapped-accessible paved path to a gorge overlook, and picnicking.
  • Brandywine Falls, Ohio: The 60-foot falls carved by Brandywine Creek were named one of the “Ten Best Waterfalls” in National Parks by National Geographic. A boardwalk and steps bring you into the waterfall’s gorge for viewing and photos.
  • Tahquemenon Falls State Park, Michigan: Michigan’s second-largest park features several waterfalls in addition to 45,000 acres of hiking, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. View the upper and lower falls from platforms along the trail or the Toonerville Trolley in Soo Junction.

Geysers that will impress any guy:

  • Old Perpetual Geyser, Oregon: Located at Hunters Hot Springs Resort, Old Perpetual is the only geyser in Oregon. It shoots 200-degree water 60 feet into the air every 90 seconds.
  • Old Faithful, Wyoming: the most popular geyser in the Upper Geyser Basin, Old Faithful erupts more frequently than any of Yellowstone’s others. On an average of 85 minutes (although actual eruption intervals vary from 40 to 115 minutes), Old Faithful shoots a steady stream of water 106 to 189 feet into the air. Eruptions last one and a half to five minutes, predicting the relative span of time to the next display.
  • Noris Geyser Basin, Wyoming: This is the hottest and most compact thermal area of Yellowstone, and the activity in Norris’ Back Basin and Porcelain Basin is fast and furious. Norris geysers include Dark Cavern and Constant Geysers, which erupt sporadically, and numerous others. Explore two museums and paths to other basins from here.
  • Old Faithful Geyser of California: One of the few predictable geysers in the world, Old Faithful puts a performance on every 10-60 minutes. The eruption lasts from about one to 15 minutes and is located at 1299 Tubbs Lane in Calistoga.

Towns too cute for words:

  • Valentine, Nebraska: Also known as America’s Heart City, Valentine hosts the holiday in a unique way on Main Street with a Bull Bash, wine tastings, gun and art shows, and meat cutting demonstrations.
  • Loveland, Ohio: Plan dinner and a show at the Loveland Stage Company, a wine or beer tasting at Paxton’s Grille, or shopping through Studios on Main.
  • Loveland, Colorado: The Heart of Northern Colorado offers art galleries, museums, theater, and recreation. Stay at a bed and breakfast or campground, hike beautiful trails, or shop and dine downtown.
  • Kissimmee, Florida: What’s more romantic than a Disney vacation? Well, coffee shops, wine bars, luxurious resorts, historic districts, and antique shopping to name a few of the Orlando suburb’s offerings.
