Romance and the Rites of Spring

Let me tell ya ’bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called “Love”

We can thank Jewel Akens for those words and a reminder of what spring brings to mind. We re-establish our relationship with the sun and reconnect with people. Winter so often sends us into doldrums that spring really becomes a time of awakening.

As we watch the buds bloom on bare tree branches we know that we too can bloom. The butterflies and honeybees are looking for nectar and the flowers beckon them with bright colors. Human beings are not much different.

Now is the time to refresh for your new venture into romance or maybe spruce up the one you have. Pack a picnic basket and head for one of our great parks, like the glorious forests of  Shenandoah or the wonderful waters of Assateague. You can even take the metro to the National Mall and take in the sites while sharing the fun with someone new or someone already special in your life.

If its raining, make some popcorn, snuggle up, rent Fantasia and enjoy the music and imagery that came long before MTV and Anime.

But the sun will shine and a warm wind will blow most days. Unique Events can help make those days special with Getaway and Date Night plans.

Even Cruises are affordable and really give you a chance to see the world.

Send us an email and ask how we can make your spring something to remember.
