Things are warming up to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but it’s not just about romance: love comes in many guises! Whether it’s a getaway for two lovers or two girlfriends—or more!—here’s a roundup of some fun things to do the week the world sees love everywhere.

Valentine’s & Galentine’s

Getting away with the one you love doesn’t necessarily mean heading out with your partner—sometimes there’s nothing better than gathering the gals you love and celebrating them with a Galentine’s Getaway! Wine and friendship go together like wine and cheese, and if you’ve been there and done that in Napa and Sonoma, why not head down further south and hit Mexico’s famed Valle de Guadalupe’s wine region?

El Cielo Resort & Winery has put together the perfect Wine & Friends package to help you celebrate your gals, and it comes with world-class wines (natch), make-your-own wine sessions, wagon rides through the vineyards, luxury digs, award-winning eats, and endless bonding opportunities by the firepit. Falconry lessons? Check. Poolside lounging? Check. The package also has the option to include a 3-course lunch or dinner at Latitud 32 and is available throughout the entire month of February.
