If you wanna go above and beyond to impress and show your lover that this Valentine’s Day will consist of more than just beer & hot dogs, or picking up road kill to make a stew with cornbread and sweet tea, then listen up boys and pay close attention!

I have compiled this list of the best romantic getaways in Lawton/Ft. Sill especially for you. From the economically affordable to the ridiculously expensive, there is something on this list for everyone.

If you’re secretly in love with someone…now’s the time to speak up and take some real action. Who knows, you might even get some! But remember, if you treated your lover like they mattered every day, Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be so special, and you wouldn’t have to spend so much money.
