Just in case you hadn't noticed, Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching.
That means you don't have a lot of time to plan that special romantic getaway that will hopefully keep you out of the doghouse for the next year.
The folks at Thrillist are here to help with their list of The Most Romantic Weekend Getaway in Every State.
If keeping it close to home is priority number one, check out the romantic places they recommend in the Tri-State (Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota) area.
The Most Romantic Weekend Getaway in Iowa
In the Hawkeye State, enjoy some one-on-one time with your special someone in Decorah.
Thrilllist recommends booking a room at the Hotel Winneshiek and checking out activities with a day at Malanaphy Springs and Phelps Park.
And while you're enjoying the great outdoors, why not grab a cup of hot chocolate and strap on a pair of ice skates at the Wayside Skating Rink?
The Most Romantic Weekend Getaway in Minnesota
If Minnesota is more your speed, you're not going to find a more picturesque getaway than Lutsen, on the North Shore Lake Superior.
Thrillist strongly suggests booking a room at Lutsen Resort where you can enjoy a romantic dinner at The Strand.
The Most Romantic Weekend Getaway in South Dakota
In South Dakota, it doesn't get much more romantic than Spearfish Canyon.
Thrilllist actually touts this Black Hills spot as 'older than the Grand Canyon, and, most importantly, less populated with screaming children'.
They recommend hitting the outdoors on snowmobiles or cross-country skis and working in a visit to Roughlock Falls on Highway 222.
