Valentine's day is Wednesday, February 14th, and lots of us look forward to the holiday.

Naturally, some people don't. Are you the traditional candy and flowers type? Romantic dinner type? If you're like me, you enjoy traveling. I've made it my mission this year to experience as much of Washington as I can. Most of my travel falls on free weekends.

According to the website Thrillist.com, the most romantic weekend getaway is in north-central Washington. It's described as a nature lovers' resort destination in the mountains with water sports, hotels, hiking, and local wine. Lake Chelan is the 3rd deepest lake in the U.S. Fishing is popular on the lake and winemaking is really popular. Lake Chelan is also a popular wedding location. There are more than 30 tasting rooms.

Lake Chelan offers many restaurants and ambiance. Maybe you'd like to pop the question, or relax after a day on the lake, there's a restaurant for every taste and occasion in Lake Chelan.

Pick your poison and price range for sleeping quarters.

With so much to experience in Lake Chelan, you can make a reservation at a variety of resorts, cabins, hotels, and motels. Rental homes and condos are available, too. Personally, I'm always looking for the deal.
