11 romantic getaways for different types of travelers


If you and your special someone would like to travel together to a romantic getaway. There's more to see than just your personal chemistry.

To choose the perfect destination possible, you also have to consider what else you enjoy and what kind of traveler you are.

Keeping that in mind, here are nine romantic getaways for every type of traveler whether it's for a Valentine's Day celebration or really any time of year:

1. Foodies: Gourmet walk

Los Angeles, California

A food tour to Los Angeles including places such as Koreatown which is a romantic way to spend a day with your sweetie.

2. Singles: Pub crawl

Prague, Czech Republic

Singles may find a Czech pub crawl that satisfies their romantic thirst.

My advice for singles looking for a great time in a beautiful neighborhood? A beer tasting tour of Prague.

Prague Pub Crawl hosts the Czech beer tasting experience, as well as a beer master's brewery tour.

For the beer tasting experience, guests can taste seven beers, both major and micro-brewed many of which are unique to Prague and learn the six steps of properly assessing beer.

But if you're willing to go for a little bit crazier, try the Brewery Tour, which takes guests to three microbreweries and offers 10 types of Czech beer.

Plus, the tour implies that guests get to travel to tram through Prague's beautiful New Town. Who knows who you may meet?

3. Parents: Things for your kids

Round Hill Hotel, Montego Bay, Jamaica

Round Hill Hotel has plenty of things that will keep the kids busy

What’s the better way to deal with the kids than to give them their own vacation?

Jamaica's Round Hill Hotel has been there around since the 1950s and was originally meant to be the private getaway for celebrities the likes of Frank Sinatra.

So while the hotel is plush, the atmosphere is homely and more than open enough for kids to tear through without judgment.

Each private villa comes with an expert in-house team, with, butlers, housekeepers, and chefs who maintain the villas, clean up after the kids and cook breakfast.

Round Hill offers a team for nannies, many of whom have been employed for years, who keep the kids occupied with activities such as tie-dyeing T-shirts, driving around the resort in swimming or golf cart in the calm beach or kiddie pool.

While the kids are having a blast here.

4. Outdoor lovers: Biking

All around Denmark

Ride a bike with the partner in Copenhagen, Denmark.

With more than 10,000 kilometers (around 6,200 miles) with marked bicycle routes and mostly flat terrain, Denmark is the best explored on two wheels.

You can bike along the 7,314 kilometers of coastline and rest it up at one of the many nature campsites or just fly into the Aarhus, which has a bus service that takes passengers to the railway station.

From there, bike rentals are easy to find, and the Open Air Museum is nearby. It has 0.34 square kilometers of land to ride around and shows Denmark as it was between the 1600s to 1900s through much of its focus is on the 1800s, the time of Hans Christian Andersen.

Picnics are also allowed here (so get a bike with a basket). Aarhus also offers a cycle route that takes bikers through the City Hall, city center, and the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, an art museum which is topped with a rainbow-colored skywalk.

From Aarhus, bikers with stamina can ride to the Copenhagen while their jelly-legged friends catch the train.

Once in the Copenhagen, bike by The Little Mermaid statue in Langelinie and then go to the south to see the Gefion Fountain in the Nordre Toldbod area and make a wish.

Other offerings around Copenhagen are Tivoli Gardens, the city's most famous amusement park with the world's tallest carousel, the Pantomime Theatre, The Star Flyer, and several outdoor scenes with live music, as well as fireworks displays at night also come under Copenhagen's offerings.

5. Children at heart: Animal Park

Discovery Cove, Orlando, Florida

For those who are kids at heart, head towards the amusement park and relive those childhood days when love could be presented through a candy heart.

Discovery Cove in Orlando, Florida, that keeps the crowds thin with a limited admission (1,300 guests at a time) and no lines. Guests can frolic with dolphins, swim with the tropical fish and snorkel near the park's very own coral reef.

You can also interact with the land-based animals such as hand-feeding toucans, parrots, and other exotic birds. Or you can wade alongside otters.

After all the animal interaction, you can hang around over the resort pool and swim along a tropical river.

The entry also includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

6. Literary lovers: Classic hangouts

Paris, France

Père Lachaise cemetery is a different but still romantic place to go in Paris.

For a novel come to romantic Paris, take a spin through the literary hotspots of the City of Light.

The current Shakespeare and Company not the same bookstore that was owned by Sylvia Beach and frequented by Ernest Hemingway, but has now become a bookstore/library that is a tribute to Beach and opens their doors to struggling writers who can sleep and relax there.

A completely resting place for some of the world's most favorite authors, Père Lachaise is the largest cemetery in Paris and is a great place to meander, even if you never find the graves of Balzac, Oscar Wilde, and Proust.

For the slightly less morbid date spot, there's the Café de Flore in the 6th arrondissement, which even has its own literary prize (Prix de Flore), or its rival, Les Deux Magots in the Saint Germain-des-Prés, which has also won the literary prize (Deux Magots).

Paris at night can be enjoyed more at La Closerie des Lilas, Hemingway's preferred bar/cafe, and the place where he wrote "The Sun Also Rises." Or you can visit Harry's New York Bar, the birthplace of the Bloody Mary and the hotspot in the early 1900s for international visitors, that includes the Sinclair Lewis.

7. Movie buffs: Italian cinema

Tuscany, Italy

Cortona, in Tuscany, Italy, is the splendid backdrop for an amorous getaway.

Many a film has been shot in Italy, from the known ("Roman Holiday") to the less so ("Star Wars Episode 1" and "II").

Arezzo, a town in Tuscany, makes it so easy to find movie locations with placards and signposts marking filming locations for "Life is Beautiful."

The Piazza Grande is the city's most famous medieval square and can be searched behind the church of Santa Maria della Pieve.

Just a few miles ahead of the south of Arezzo is Cortona, the setting for much of "Under the Tuscan Sun," which means expanses of countryside and Tuscan gardens. When a town is that pretty, and there's not much more work to do to make the sparks fly.

8. Older couples: Jjimjilbang

Spaland in Busan, South Korea

Just because you're a little up there in age it doesn't mean things have to stop being steamy. Literally.

One of the most common date spots in South Korea is also most frequented visited by the elderly -- jjimjjlbangs, or Korean-style saunas that provides a range of options.

Head towards the natural hot springs with minerals that benefit the joints and muscles. Or try one of the many themed rooms meant to keep the guests occupied and pampered -- charcoal room, Bali room wave, dream room, etc.

One of the most popular attraction is the Finnish sauna. You will also find massage and therapy rooms, restaurants, cafés, and DVD rooms making it easy to pass the maximum four hours without getting bored.

9.All-Inclusive Resort

At an all-inclusive resort, transfers to or from your resort, food, accommodations, alcohol, activities, entertainment, gratuities and taxes are all included in the cost of your vacation package.

These resorts, which can be only for adults only, provide you with everything you need to have for a good time. Plus, there are no surprise expenses at the end of your trip because everything is conveniently included in the upfront cost!

This hassle-free way to see and do it all makes all-inclusive resorts an ideal place for all types of romance travel.

10.Cruise

It offers unlimited potential and fun for your travel plans. On a romantic cruise, you can sleep as late as you want, enjoy a constant view of the ocean, eat whatever you want and see multiple destinations without having to pack and unpack.

Cruises sail to every continent and you can turn any one of them to your destination. One of the most popular cruise trips in the world sails to the Caribbean islands of St. Thomas, the Bahamas St. Maarten.

You might also consider an Alaskan Cruise or Mediterranean Cruise which offer unique itineraries with many activities and experiences to share.

11.Tours

Tours and European adventures are a completely great way to explore the history of the world and the unique cultures that make traveling a worthwhile experience.

You can engage in the multi-city touring or choose to settle down in a charming seaside town. Rome, Italy, and Paris are top in the list of romantic destinations. If you’re a couple that loves to share new experiences.
