Surprise your special someone with a romantic getaway. Here you'll find three ideas from high-end elegance to down home country fun.

1. The Wild Iris
Located in picturesque LaConner, WA a stay at the Wild Iris offers the finest guest suites with a king bed, large jetted spa tubs, a fireplace, cozy bath robes, and more. They are located just a short four block walk from downtown LaConner where you can boutique shop to your heart's desire. Take her to the charming Bunnies by the Bay store. One has plush gifts for woman and baby and their flagship location right next door offers their trademark bunny designs in a clever home. Look for the picket carrot fence. Then head to the LaConner Brewing Company for dinner and request the table by the fireplace for a romantic meal.

2. Salish Lodge & Spa
This romantic mountain getaway is a retreat for the soul. Only 30 miles from Seattle stay at this luxury hotel and treat her to a spa visit before visiting the famed Snoqualmie Falls right next door. You'll both enjoy taking a romantic stroll down tree-lined trails in the area.

3. Tulalip Resort & Casino
For a high-rolling experience stay at the Tulalip Resort for a night of casino fun. Eat dinner at Tulalip Bay fine dining. Then take their complimentary shuttle for a short ride to the Seattle Premium Outlets for a day of shopping. The upscale outlet shopping offers designer brands, including couture (Burberry, Coach, Juicy Couture, Michael Kors, Kate Spade) with more than 100 outdoor stores.
