Redefine Romance Over a Long Valentine's Day Weekend at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

Explore a wilder side of Valentine's Day and cap the weekend off with a Presidential encounter for President's Day

California (I-Newswire) February 5, 2014 - With a long weekend in store for Valentine's Day and President's Day, Wuksachi Lodge at Sequoia National Park and John Muir Lodge at Kings Canyon National Park are offering couples and adventurers a number of special packages to fall for.

From romantic to patriotic, both parks offer something for lovers and lovers of our country. Take a romantic walk through a quiet forest of giant Sequoias, followed by delicious dinner for two. Or hum "Hail to the Chief" as you hike to either the President Tree, a 3,200- year-old specimen growing in the Giant Forest at Sequoia National Park, or the General Grant Tree, named for America's 18th President and growing in Grant Grove in Kings Canyon National Park.

Valentine's purists will delight in the Romance Package, which offers overnight accommodations, a bottle of private label wine and keepsake glasses, local chocolates and a $50 dinner voucher for The Peaks Restaurant at Wuksachi Lodge or Grant Grove Restaurant in Kings Canyon. With rates starting at $209 for Wuksachi Lodge and $189 for John Muir Lodge, couples can take advantage of incredible prices for one sweet and rustic getaway. Outdoor lovers will adore the brand new Deluxe Winter Explorer Package and the Night Sky Package, both of which are available at Wuksachi Lodge and John Muir Lodge. During snowy weather, the Deluxe Winter Explorer Package includes an overnight stay, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing for two, a souvenir backpack, water bottles, trail mix and a winter trail map; starting at $199 at Wuksachi Lodge and $189 at John Muir Lodge. With the Night Sky Package, couples can snuggle up under the stars with a keepsake blanket and enjoy overnight lodging, an astronomy wheel, a flashlight and a recycled materials tote bag; starting at $175 at Wuksachi Lodge and $159 at John Muir Lodge.

When Valentine's Day hunger strikes, couples can head to The Peaks at Wuksachi Lodge to experience a special holiday menu by Executive Chef Jeff Graham. The Peaks offers sustainably sourced meats, seasonal vegetables and other fresh ingredients; as well as an array of signature cocktails like the Toblerone Martini and watermelon-infused Champagne. For Valentine's Day, Chef Graham will prepare a four-course meal featuring grilled prawns, strawberry and feta salad, a choice of salmon or filet mignon, a chocolate course and even a signature mint melon cocktail for $95 per couple. In Kings Canyon, the Grant Grove Restaurant will be offering casual, yet delicious fare like Dungeness crab cakes, filet mignon and scallops, served a la carte.

After the romantic glow of Valentine's Day weekend, visitors have an extra day to enjoy the sights and scenery in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks over the President's Day holiday. Along with paying a visit to the grand old President, Washington and Lincoln trees in the Giant Forest, explorers can experience Round Meadow and the Giant Forest Museum. For an extended holiday stay, rates begin at $109 at Wuksachi Lodge and $89 at John Muir Lodge.
