Love is in the Air – Creative Dates in Reno Tahoe

The weather may be cool but there is plenty of love warming up the air in Reno Tahoe as Valentine’s Day approaches. Forego the typical dinner date and plan a heart-warming surprise for that special someone with one of these unique date ideas.

Explore the Great Outdoors

Sometimes the most romantic activities involve being outdoors together, and in Reno Tahoe, we have year-round outdoor activities suitable for everyone. Strech your legs as you and your partner enjoy a leisure bike ride along the Truckee River (rent your bikes from Reno Renaissance) or take advantage of the picturesque scenery as you play in the snow. Pack a picnic and enjoy wine and snacks during your romantic adventure. The best part? Outdoor Activites are great for the whole family! Whether that includes your kid or your four-legged fur baby. Check out the Outdoor Activites page under things to do and fall in love in Reno Tahoe!

Get Artsy

If art and creativity warm your heart, you are sure to find an abundance of options in the area. From art walks and galleries to production art spaces, the Reno arts and culture scene is sure to make your honey’s heart melt. Create a piece of artwork at The Wedge Ceramics Studio or take a leisurely stroll along the Riverwalk and experience the beautiful public art and landscapes the city has to offer. After all, the more picturesque the date, the better for a guaranteed dreamy Valentine photo (and of course share your experience using the hashtag #RenoTahoe!). Visit our Arts and Culture page for more artsy things to do!
