    That's the first place I thought about but didn't reply. I love going there. I don't even go with much money. I used to go just to get away for a weekend.

    Allyuh it's my first time there, I mean to actually chill not pass through.. but I can't wait, I need some me time, and the discount I'm getting on hotels so happens to work outside a 50 mile radius of NYC, so NJ was the only choice...

    For some Valentine's Day quality time, go into seclusion at one of these romantic out-of-town destinations.

    Litchfield's Mayflower Inn
    There's a three-night minimum to stay at the luxurious Mayflower Inn but the spa services offered at this English manor-style inn in Connecticut's Litchfield County are so deluxe, you won't be in a hurry to leave.

    Inns on Shelter Island
    The stately seaside Ram's Head Inn is offering rock-bottom rates for Valentine's night and for February 18-21. Rooms from $35-$90 include continental breakfast, and on Valentine's Day, the inn's Champagne & Chiffon evening will feature live jazz. Rooms at the nearby Chequit Inn start at $65.


    Going Gourmet in Maine
    Cute Victorian bed-and-breakfasts are practically a dime a dozen in Maine, but the Berry Manor Inn ($85-$115 per night) in Rockland offers "evening sweets" and it's not far from James Beard Award-winner Melissa Kelly's restaurant, Primo.



    Bond-Like Bermuda Escape
    The Sonesta Beach hotel will take you out of the city and back to the sixties, with a decor straight out of 007. Rooms are $145-$200, and right now the hotel is offering a fourth night free if you book three nights. Be sure to check the Web site's "Last Minute Net-Only Specials" before you book.



    Boston's New Beacon
    The tony new Fifteen Beacon hotel offers a "Romantic Getaway": For $675 ($495 each additional night), you'll get an amenity-laden studio including a working fireplace, whirlpool tub, bottle of champagne, flower bouquet, and continental breakfast in your canopied, 300-thread-count-sheeted bed.


    Schussing in Killington
    Most rooms at the Killington Grand are booked, but ski-in/ski-out condos with fireplace, full kitchen and whirlpool tub are still available, from $434 per person and up. If you'd rather avoid the President's Day weekend rush, the resort is also offering cheap packages that start the following Monday.


    Tucked Away in Turks & Caicos
    The very private Parrot Cay offers 1,000 acres of tropical escape just south of Miami, but take heed: The hotel requires a five-night minimum stay during that period. Winter rates start at $560.


    Capital Valentine
    Located in one of D.C.'s hipper 'hoods, the Tabard Inn has beautiful rooms and a critically lauded restaurant. Rates for two with private bath start at $125.


    Catskills & Cabaret
    The Bradstan Country Hotel offers a base for antiquing and taking in the charm and fresh air in Woodstock. Rates from $100-$125; ask for a room overlooking White Lake, and check out the Saturday night cabaret offering.


    Boca Is for Lovers
    Not only does the Boca Raton Resort & Club offer the golf, tennis, spa and luxury amenities you'd expect from a chi chi resort, it's got a little touch of New York nearby: Drew Nieporent's Lucca restaurant. Room rates range from $260-1300.

    Oh gosh, nothing out my mouth came out of order dahlin! Sometimes, these trips people need to take to get away from home to escape the dramas of the dollar cabs, B 35's, 8's, 41's, the 4train, the 2 train, the traffic and the attitudes.... That's all, I'll probably look a for a massage therapists while I'm there! Is that clean for your ears??? LOL
