Does it feel like summer is moving too fast? Travel, like summer, is all about savoring the moment. Don’t worry. There is definitely still time to get away to places near and far. This month, we visit Japan, go on a family cruise to the Caribbean, and share why private jet charters are on the rise.

Valentine’s Day falls on a weekend this year. A perfect excuse to plan a mini getaway around the country or across our northern border.
New York City
The dazzling suites in this Big Apple stunner will definitely make a statement. All month long the Baccarat will add champagne and amorous treats for the occasion. And with complimentary hair blow outs and La Mer spa services and amenities, couples will be ready for a night in – or out on the town.
Hôtel de Glace
Quebec City, Canada
The coolest way to impress your Valentine may just be at the Hôtel de Glace in Quebec. This seasonal spectacular is built entirely from ice and snow. It certainly gives new meaning to snuggling by the fireplace. Even the dramatic ice sculptures and Ice Bar are designed to impress.
Little Palm Island
Little Torch Key, Florida
A romantic private island getaway is closer than you think. This swanky adults-only resort in the Florida Keys is only accessible by seaplane or boat. Soak up paradise in the privacy of your own bungalow. They will even arrange a warm bath waiting upon arrival. No wonder it’s a celebrity favorite.
Post Ranch Inn
Big Sur, California
Enjoy a dramatic sunset over the Pacific while perched high above the cliffs at this architectural and eco-friendly marvel. For added romance, the hotel will pack a picnic lunch for two and lend you the keys to the house Lexus convertible (no charge) for a spin down the Pacific Coast Highway.
