For rejuvenation seekers, come soak in the healing mineral waters of a hot spring. In the aptly named town of Paradise, Quinn’s Hot Springs Resort offers a Winter Romance Couples Lodging package with live music, dinner, dancing and lodging, or cuddle up at Lolo Hot Springs in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley.
