With the holidays approaching, maybe you’re overdue for a little one on one time. Being with friends and family is great and all, but sometimes spending time as a couple is what you really need.  A romantic getaway. Listen, it’s not hard to find a great hotel or resort in Florida. The state is absolutely full of them. For those of us who live in Southwest Florida, you’re probably no more than a short drive away from an amazing resort.

Last year, a few weeks before Christmas, I was fortunate enough to spend time with my girl at Fontainebleau on South Beach. Getting away, just the two of us, really helped reconnect. It really reminds you why you got with that person in the first place. You don’t even have to go all the way to Miami. We had a similar experience at Tween Waters on Captiva. Just the two of us, adventuring, as we call it.

Frommer’s, a travel brand started back in 1957, detailed some of the best romantic hotels and resorts in Florida. Probably not the best places to take the kids, but ideal for a couple. Several of these places are in the Florida Keys, a noted romantic destination.

Here’s 9 South Florida locations that could be exactly what you’re looking for in a romantic getaway.
