A U.S road trip with a loved one is the perfect romantic adventure this Valentine's Day. Driving along some of the world's most spectacular coastlines, lazy days on sun-kissed beaches, nights snuggled up in cosy cabins in the heart of awe-inspiring forests and enjoying a taste of old-world Americana, will make for a truly unique, romantic break. Explore the Southern Rocky Mountains of Colorado and head to the town of Loveland which plays host to the nation's biggest Valentine's festival. Dubbed the Sweetheart City, Valentine's Day is more than just a day in Loveland – it's a way of life. Heart-shaped love notes dot the streets, art and sculpture take on romantic forms and local craft brews are transformed into love potions, culminating in the huge Fire and Ice Festival; a giant celebration of love, life and the arts.

A short drive east is the tiny town of Romance, Arkansas, which could be the perfect place to make some romantic memories – just be sure to avoid a trip to Bad Luck Creek which happens to flow by the side of the town.
