Don’t be caught without plans for your special someone on Valentine’s Day. We’ve put together a list of 10 ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Phoenix.
Updated for 2015
1. Romantic dinner out
Probably the most popular way to spend Valentine’s Day is a romantic dinner out with that special someone. Plenty of Phoenix area restaurants have special menus planned for Valentine’s Day with bonus like live romantic music and flowers that come with dinner.
2. Romantic getaway
Phoenix area resorts have put together special Valentine’s Day packages which include special perks like champagne, chocolates, spa treatments and more.
Flowers, chocolate and champagne have become synonymous with Valentine’s Day, so we put together a handy list of the best places in Phoenix to get chocolate.
4. Baked goods
So maybe your Valentine isn’t a chocolate fan – try satisfying their non-chocolate-loving-sweet-tooth with Valentine themed baked goods from local bakers like Urban Cookies, Barb’s Bakery, or Tammie Coe Cakes (they have chocolate dipped strawberries!)
5. Anti-Valentine’s Day
Don’t want to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Hula’s Modern Tiki is throwing an Anti-Valentine’s Day Celebration.
6. Mix up a romantic cocktail
The Amore Smooch from Sassi Restaurant is sure to make your Valentine smile.
7. Local love
8. Arizona wine
Did you know that Arizona’s birthday is on Valentine’s Day? Celebrate with a bottle of Arizona wine. We’ve heard that a sharing a bottle of Sparkles Peach from Sonoita Vineyards with your sweetheart is a perfect way to celebrate. (You can find Sparkles Peach at Sphinx Date Ranch).
9. Desert by air
What’s more romantic than a sunrise hot-air balloon ride with champagne? Or a sunset helicopter ride with sweeping views of the desert? This Valentine’s Day, explore the desert by air with your special someone.
10. Watch a sunset together
Grab a bottle of something sparkling (see above) and catch one of our spectacular sunsets, which paint the desert sky on a nightly basis. We know the best places to see a Phoenix sunset and are happy to let you in on the secret.
