    Worth the Drive: The After-Valentine's Valentine's Package
    Hotel Oceana
    Valentine's 2010 has passed, but you can stil celebrate at Hotel Oceana in Santa Barbara.

    Your job: Decide to get out of town and fast. Our job: Help you find where you're headed. This week, NBCLA's Worth the Drive takes us to...

    Hotel Oceana: Think Santa Barbara. Think plenty romantic, with a bougainvillea-pretty, California-funky character. And think close to the beach (the "Oceana" in the name is a giveaway).

    Valentine's Day, contd.: So, the heart-iest day of the year wrapped about a week ago. But that doesn't mean everyone celebrated. People maybe didn't have time to honor the holiday. They had other plans, Mardi Gras, work, life. But there's still time: Hotel Oceana is offering its Valentine's Day Package through the month of February.

    What's included: A bottle of wine, two 60-minute in-room massages, continental breakfast, and the beach-close favorite: Beach Cruisers, a pair of 'em, for two hours.

    Prices: Rooms per night per couple for this package start at $229; an ocean view will be a bit higher.

    Valentine's every day: That's what people say. We all say. Those in love try to celebrate well after February 14th. If that's you, here's your chance to live it, on, say, February 25th.

    Month-long packages: And couldn't every hotel and restaurant offering a holiday special make that special last past the holiday itself? A trend we'd love to see grow.
