Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to escape on a romantic getaway with your sweetheart. We might be a little biased, but at Forever Houseboats, we believe there’s nowhere quite as ideal for romance as a houseboat vacation. Treat your Valentine to a romantic weekend on the water this year. Here’s how you can make it extra memorable.
Cozy Up All Night Long
Because the weather will be a bit cooler on the water in February, we recommend bringing a few of your favorite blankets from home for extra warmth. After beaching your houseboat, find a comfy spot around the upper deck lounge area. Cover it with blankets, comforters, snacks and drinks, and lay down just as the sun begins to fall beneath the horizon. Watch the sunset together and enjoy the rest of the evening stargazing and cuddling.
Make it Special
Enjoy a nice long day soaking in some rays, or beach your houseboat and explore a quiet canyon hike nearby. Whether your loved one is a thrill seeker or a professional relaxer, there is an activity on the lake for every personality. Up for some added fun? Rent a small watercraft to take you into more hidden or remote areas.
Chocolate Fondue for Two
Who could forget about dessert on Valentine’s Day? We’ve found an easy recipe with lots of variations to delight your palate. Place 1 cup of your favorite chocolate chips and ¼ cup of heavy cream into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds, then stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds and stir. Continue heating in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until the chocolate is fully melted. For a fun variation, add peanut butter or jarred caramel sauce into the mix. Fruit, marshmallows, cookies, and even potato chips make great dippers for your homemade fondue!
