FARMINGTON HILLS – Looking for a special gift for the love of your life? Give the gift of time.
Joe Gagnon, who arranges travel for LGBT singles and couples for Gateway Travel in Farmington Hills, says that a trip is one of the most romantic ways to both celebrate and renew your relationship.
“Couples need time by themselves to enjoy each other’s company without interference from others,” said Gagnon. With the hectic schedules we have, we need to focus – it’s about coming together as a couple and discovering one another.
Gagnon recommends these LGBT-friendly destinations:


Hotel Allegro – “Snuggle ‘n’ Shop Romance” – Deluxe accommodations for two, a bottle of champagne, a bowl of fresh strawberries and a large can of whipped cream, plus fresh fragrant rose petals spread on the bed before check-in.
