You may be traveling to Denver for the snow and a good ski session, but with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it is a good idea to consider some of the more romantic options the Mile High City has on offer.
From horse-drawn carriage rides to cozy cabin overnights, travelers arriving on flights to Denver have all the opportunities to make Valentine’s in Denver a special getaway for themselves and that special someone.
Secluded Cabin Retreats: What could be more magical than a private cabin getaway in the middle of the snow? With a couple bottles of red wine, chocolates and a fire, it sounds like a perfect Valentine’s Day for capturing the whole sense of being disconnected.
Ski cabins are a dime a dozen in the Denver region. An alternative option is to splurge on a luxurious Denver hotel room for the night.
Book a Spa for Two: A couples massage or relaxation treatment for two screams Valentine’s Day treat. The Body Massage Wellness Spa in downtown Denver has couples massages for just the occasion.
Ride a Horse-Drawn Carriage: You can take advantage of a romantic staple with your sweetie by enjoying a carriage ride through the historic sections of Denver this Valentine’s Day. Irish Horse Carriages offers special downtown carriage rides during Valentine’s week starting from $75.
Reserve a Candlelit Dinner for Two: There is no shortage of romantic restaurants to choose from in Denver. Some options include:
- Bistro Vendome – Located in Larimer Square, this French Bistro offers a delight of French cuisine that can be topped off with a orange-chocolate fondue.
- Cucina Colore – This authentic Italian restaurant with a bistro feel is seated in Cheery Creek North. For a decadent romantic dinner, be sure to indulge in the Peach Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce.
- Mizuna – Mizuna only holds 16 tables, so you will never feel like you’re needing to talk over the noise of the restaurant you’re at on Valentine’s Day. It’s a French restaurant meaning you can stuff yourself with rich foods before tucking in to the warm chocolate cake.
Take in the Rocky Mountain View: Mountains fill Colorado and they also fill the skyline surrounding Denver. Why not find a restaurant or a bar with a view of nature’s beauty for this romantic evening? The Peaks Lounge, located at the Hyatt-Regency, is a rooftop bar with excellent cocktails and appetizers. Check in for a special wine and chocolate pairing package just for Valentine’s Day.
In Denver, there’s literally no excuse to not be romantic on this coming Valentine’s Day. What else do you have planned for your Denver getaway?
