Love is in the Air – Creative Date Ideas

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. Stretch your legs as you and your partner enjoy a leisure bike ride along the Truckee River 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 activities are great for the whole family! Whether that includes your kids or your four-legged fur baby.

Get Artsy

If art and creativity warm your heart, you are sure to find an abundance of arts and culture experiences 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 through the Riverwalk District 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!).

Relax and Unwind

Relax and unwind at a Reno Tahoe spa. Book a Romance Package at Spa Atlantis that includes a one night room stay in the Luxury Tower and a couples Swedish massage. Tune out the stress and worries with your sweetheart at Spa Toscana inside of the Peppermill Reno with massage treatments and relaxing therapies. Offering services inspired by the air, water, earth and fire elements of the region, Stillwater Spa & Salon, inside The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe, is a tranquil and relaxing environment where you can enjoy this Valentine’s Day. Visit our spa page for a full list of offerings.

Indulge Your Sweet Tooth

There is just something about love, romance, and Valentine’s Day that has us craving something sugary and sweet – besides our honey. Luckily in Reno Tahoe, there is no shortage of dessert spots. Browse our food and drink page to find something sweet for your sweetheart.

Bring the Night Out Home

Whether you’re in a hotel suite or found a cozy vacation rental with your sweetie, bringing the dining experience home is still an excellent way to get some of that Reno Tahoe flavor while staying safe. Choose from a variety of meals like Korean fusion at Arario Midtown or some Fresh Mex from Mari & Chuy’s. Pick up dessert from Black Rock Dessert or Dorinda’s Chocolate. Top it off with a nightcap to-go from Rum Sugar Lime or be your own bartender with some of our local cocktail recipes. We think this will be a date night you’ll always remember.
