5 Awesome Valentine’s Date Ideas

Couple celebrating Valentine's Day | Victoria, TX

The last thing you want to do on Valentine’s Day is stay stuck at home having the same night as usual, or go out for a too-expensive dinner at a restaurant where the food is certainly not worth the bill. Instead, check out these five awesome Valentine’s date ideas below.

Go ice skating

Ever notice how most rom-coms feature couples ice skating? That’s because there are few things as romantic as gliding on the ice together. And conveniently, February is a great time to go do just that.

Watch a comedy show

What’s more romantic than laughing together? Forget about the stress of day-to-day responsibilities and head to a local comedy club to relax and have a laugh.

Chill at the spa

Spas often offer reduced rates and extended hours for couples on Valentine’s Day. Take advantage of the opportunity to get a massage and treat yourselves together. You deserve it!

Book a hotel

Spending the night in a different environment can do wonders for romance. Book a nice hotel with your partner and order some champagne to your room to celebrate your relationship.

Have a themed night in

Okay, so maybe you like to stay in. Just don’t make it like every other night. Switch things up by picking a theme, then choosing a movie and cooking a meal together that matches it.

If you decide to go out on Valentine’s Day, impress your date with a nice new ride at Atzenhoffer.

What better way to get cozy than next to a fire? If your backyard allows, gather up some firewood and make some s’mores. You could even head down to the beach.


Instead of just going to a club, impress your love with some legitimate dance moves. Sign up for a couples’ dance class. Try Let’s Dance Victoria.

Ghost Tour

You will be holding on to each other a little tighter after a spooky tour. Try the Yorktown Memorial Hospital in nearby Yorktown.


Expand your horizons by taking a walk through a local museum. Here in Victoria, we have the Museum of the Coastal Bend, the Nave Museum, the Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Art Car Victoria Museum.

Themed Night

If you want to spend Valentine’s Day at home, you can still make things exciting with a themed night in. Pick out a romantic movie and plan a creative dinner that ties it all together. For example, watch Roman Holiday and make a big Italian dinner.
