Valentine's Day getaway to Florida for under $500

This bohemian-style resort is decked out with vintage touches and local art throughout, yet modernized with WiFi and flat screen TVs in guest rooms. Most accommodations have either a pool or ocean view.

The inn has two spots on-site to imbibe. The PCI Beach Bar & Snack Shack and the acclaimed Wildwood BBQ.

Downtown St. Petersburg and Tampa are both short drives away. But who wants to go anywhere else but the beach?

A "Valentine's Day Getaway" package invites couples to spend a day biking or simply relaxing on a sunny St. Pete's beach on Florida's west coast.

Included is a two-night stay, a beach picnic lunch with champagne and a choice of a one-day beach cabana for two or the use of a tandem bike for one day. Rates are from $489, based on double and valid Feb. 12-14.

To get there, book one-way rates from just $64 to Tampa on AirTran. This low rate is valid for travel seven days a week through Sept. 29. Give at least a one-week advance notice of travel.
