From Romantic Cooking Classes and Sunset Kayaking to Ziplining over Vineyards and a Fun Way to Pop the Question, Unplug and Reconnect on California's Central Coast*

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In our fast-paced, fairly routinized world, it's hard to find time for true romance.  So when Valentine's Day rolls along, we tend to cram a year's worth of romance and expectation in one night – which often produces decidedly unromantic results.

In a place often ranked among the happiest regions, our laid-back attitude and child-like sense of adventure will rub off, and you'll remember what the good life is all about. From cooking romantic dishes sourcing regional ingredients and Love Potion #9 wine blending classes to kayaking under a Crayola-colored sky on Morro Bay, there are so many ways to get off the grid and reignite those feelings you had when you first fell in love.
