OK, you have the flowers. Maybe even some candy. Definitely the card.
So have you thought about what to do next? In the Mile High City, you have a slate of options that can bring a memorable Valentines Day for you and your love.
Here are some of the more unique items taken from a list compiled by the Denver tourism bureau.
Ice skating at Southwest Rink, Skyline Park. What’s the great thing if you can’t ice skate? Relying on your partner, hand-in-hand or arm-in-arm, to get around the rink. What could be more romantic than that, provided the two of you don’t take a massive tumble?
Valentines Day 5K. This race actually takes place four days before Valentines, on Sunday the 10th in Washington Park. But it’s a great way to get fit, or at least to start, so you can be energetic and pumped up for the big night.
The Dive Lounge at the Downtown Aquarium. In landlocked Colorado, there aren’t many places where you can view colorful marine life as you would if you were scuba diving in Cozumel or Maui. Here’s the exception, and the two of you can have a pre- or post-dinner drink. Plus, you stay nice and dry.
Horse and carriage ride. Like their New York counterparts, the horse-drawn carriages in downtown Denver inherently lend a romantic air to your evening out. You can pick up your own ride at various points on the 16th Street mall.
Salsa Dancing. If doing Zumba workouts have inspired you to take your Latin dance skills to the next level, this class for couples would be an ideal place to start. These lessons take place every Sunday, at the D Note in Olde Town Arvada.
Culinary Date Night. Maybe the two of you already cook and enjoy creating meals together. This class can add a few mad skills to your knowledge base. If nothing else, you’ll have a some new recipes to impress each other.
