Valentine's Day will fall on a Wednesday this year. If you are already thinking about what kind of special thing you can do for your loved one for the big day, we have been too.

Through scouting the website, I have found seven different spots in Acadiana where you could visit for several days to have a fun getaway. Why only seven? Well, there are technically hundreds, but as part of my search criteria, I asked to site to show me properties in our area with hot tubs!

Now, for many of us, we might be motivated to stay closer to home because it's Mardi Gras right before Ash Wednesday which just so happens to be Valentine's Day this year as well! That's not a problem as each of these seven locations is right in Acadiana. They are right in our backyard basically.

Why Take a Romantic Getaway?

Why not? Some people may wonder if a romantic getaway really that great for a relationship, and the simple answer, from various sources, is "yes" it's good for your relationship.

Relationship expert Elizabeth Overstreet told Brides magazine that romantic getaways allow couples to be "spending time with one another, learning how to navigate and enjoy these new surroundings, and creating new fresh experiences with one another."

There are tons of resources explaining why getting away helps you to reignite your relationship. A article points out that a trip away can help you remember all the things you fell in love with in the first place. Now let's check out some of the places I found:
