Valentine’s Day Escapes

After three kids and 10 years of marriage, we don’t always get to celebrate Valentine’s Day the way we used to. But, if we were to get a sitter for the kids to make a February escape, here are a few of the places I’d love to go.

I’ve had a bit of a crush on the Hotel Greenfield since it opened after renovations.  The towering brick building dates back to 1920 and the historic rooms are unique in their size and antique furnishings.

I’ve heard over and over again about The Drake Restaurant in Burlington.  Located on the downtown riverfront, this restaurant offered delicious views of the Mississippi River and a mouthwatering menu.

The Travel Iowa event calendar is filling up with fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day.  One that caught my eye is the Wine, Beer and Cupcakes Flight at Jasper Winery.  They’ll pair 4 mini cupcakes with 2 Jasper Wines and 2 Madhouse Beers.  Yes please!
