Looking for a date with a difference this Valentine’s Day? While there’s nothing wrong with the classic candlelit dinner, why not take your Valentine to one of Philadelphia’s romantic, quirky, or downright delicious special events this February 14th? You’ll be sure to make it a night they’ll remember for your best Valentine’s Day yet.
- Get creative
Channel your inner artist and take your Valentine to a romantic evening pottery class at one of The Clay Studio’s special date night events. You’ll learn the art of four-handed throwing, by candlelight, whilst sipping champagne and enjoying delectable chocolate treats. If getting your hands dirty is not your thing, try the Print Love-In at the Fleisher Art Memorial. The 18th annual weekend of artist guided print-making will allow you and your love to create unique Valentine’s cards, block-printed tote bags, or vintage style pennants.
- Love is sweet
If you want to indulge your date with the finer things in life, try one of the chocolate and wine pairing events going on at a number of wineries in the local area. The picturesque Chaddsford Winery is offering tasting events every weekend in February and on Valentine’s Day itself, where guests can stroll the historic grounds whilst visiting 5 different stations featuring artisan chocolates paired perfectly with Chaddsford’s award-winning wines. Alternatively, head to Black Walnut Winery who are pairing wines with gourmet chocolates from Bridge Street Chocolates on select afternoons throughout February.
- Cruise and dine
For a date night dinner with a twist, treat your Valentine to a cruise aboard the Spirit of Philadelphia. You can enjoy brunch, lunch, or dinner cruising along on the romantic yacht whilst taking in spectacular skyline views and the shimmering waters of the Delaware River. There will even be a professional DJ spinning romantic ballads so you can take to the floor with your love whilst you glide across the water.
- Take to the ice
There is something timelessly romantic about skating over the ice, hand-in-hand with your Valentine – so what better way to celebrate all things ‘love’ than with a trip to one of Philadelphia’s picturesque outdoor rinks. The Rothman Institute Ice Rink are offering a Sweetheart Skate event with buy-one-get-one-free entry and skate rental, and the chance to cosy up with cocktails in the Rothman Institute Cabin after you skate. At Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest you can go all out to show your Valentine how much you care with entry including flowers, chocolate, and photo booth access. You can warm up at The Lodge next door to the rink for a romantic bite to eat and cocktails afterwards, too.
