A Romantic Day at the Beach
What could be more simple and romantic than a day spent at the beach with your loved one? Walking across the soft sands, playing in the cool water, letting the suns rays warm your skin... pack a picnic and maybe some card games, or just walk along the sands and have a heart to heart conversation.
Spend the Day at an Arcade!
Nothing beats old school arcade games! Take your significant other with you to a local arcade and play ski-ball, air hockey, pin ball and much more! Don't forget to hop into a photo booth and take some adorable photos!
Make a Romantic Dinner at Home
As you're probably already aware, getting a reservation at a quiet, not too packed restaurant on Valentine's Day is next to impossible. Rather then spend a ton of money on an expensive meal and be cramped in with a bunch of other couples, head to the grocery store and make a meal for two at home! Cooking together is a great bonding experience and is highly underrated. Give it a try!
Spend the Day at an Amusement Park
For the thrill seekers out there, take your Valentine to a nearby amusement park or carnival! Whether its a local temporary fair, or something as big as Disney Land, your significant other will never forget it! Steal a kiss on the ferris wheel, hang on tight on a roller coaster, and stop for some cotton candy or a corn dog!
Visit a Nearby Museum
Whether it be art, history, science or anything else, walking around a museum with your love on Valentine's Day is a great way to spend the day. Admire all there is to see hand in hand and get a little exercise in while you're at it!
Go on a Romantic Camping Trip
This may take a little planning, but if you've gone camping before, then this will be a cinch! Take Valentines Day weekend to go camping somewhere with your sweetheart and enjoy each others company in the beauty of nature! Go fishing, make s'mores by the campfire, go on a hike, there's adventure out there waiting to be had!
Plan a Romantic Picnic
Whether its in your backyard or at a nearby park, a romantic picnic is a very simple but effective way to spend time with your Valentine! Pack some wine, shatter proof glasses and your favorite snacks and desserts and spread it out on a cozy blanket! Bring some card games or maybe even a Frisbee to throw around while you're at it!
A Valentine's Day Hike
Go and venture out into the unknown with your love on a romantic and adventurous Valentines Day hike! Visit a national park or local hiking spot and get some exercise in while you take in all the beauty of the great outdoors! Pack some snacks and some water and have an impromptu picnic while you're there as well!
Couples Massage/Spa Day
Nothing could be sweeter than a couples spa day! Get massages, pedicures, facials or anything else on the menu that strikes your fancy. Treating your partner to a relaxing day of pampering is just what the doctor ordered, and you'll both feel refreshed and rejuvenated after it's all said and done! After you leave, you can go home and cuddle up to a romantic movie or play some games!
We Hope You Have a Wonderful, Romantic Valentines Day!
