BRING OUT YOUR INNER ROMEO OR Juliet!
-- Or, where to find a romantic rendez-vous to reconnoiter? -

Valentine’s Day is rolling around again. What would February 14th be without all those wretched little red, cinnamon-flavored candy hearts and calorie-laden chocolate candy kisses?
Well, if you’re not into any of these sumptuous “sweet nothings”, maybe a Valentine vacation might do trick. If so, you’ve got plenty of "hot" spots to choose from in North America.
For benefit of mapless folk, North America includes UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and that cold comfort country (on other side of 49th parallel, just a tad due south of Santa's hangout at North Pole lies an off-the-beaten track place) called, "Canada".
For digitally-inclined, a quick peek at any road atlas or an on-line GPS geo-locator service will certaintly whet one's appetite for a romp in hay with a sizzling “Voluptuous Vixen” or a secret rendez-vous with a “Rudolph Valentino”, far away from madding crowds.
Let’s see, my list of romantic reconnoitering retreats includes these humdingers and doozies. They may look a tad over-the-top, but I’ll have you know these little gems actually exist.
So Don Juan, Casanova and Romeo, not to mention damsels-in-distress like Juliet and all other divas ...what are your waiting for? Just grab your gear, step on gas and hit highway of life. And don't forget to stop off at these delightful destinations to get in mood and set hearts a flutter!
On second thought, perhaps you'd like to think twice about your last-minute libidinal travel plans. After all you, may have to blow some serious coin in all these pleasure palaces filled with all manner of decadent indulgences or at very least how to cope with red heart-shaped balloon-filled events.
Hmmmm...let's see where to begin...
