Tired of the same-old Italian restaurants for date night? Been to that B&B one too many times for Valentine's Day? Then surprise your special someone with a visit to the solar system's most famous and largest heart, Tombaugh Regio! Located just north of Pluto's equator, and flanked by Cthulhu Macula and Krun Macula to provide that extra edge, Tombaugh Regio is sure to delight your loved one to mark that special occasion. Just get a raise? Celebrating a birthday? Just married? Then book the 4 billion mile ride to Pluto for a relaxing and romantic getaway, far from the hussle and bustle of all things terrestrial, on the frozen nitrogen plains of Tombaugh Regio. It will take your breath away, because it will literally freeze your breath. Tombaugh Regio, the Kuiper Belt's most romantic spot.
