It’s that time of year again! Love is in the air and you don’t want to wait until the last minute to make plans. Yes, being spontaneous can be charming and the classic fancy dinner date is a solid go-to, but it’s time you shake things up and take advantage of all the Valentine’s fun Denver has to offer! We’ve highlighted some of the more fun and unique ways to spend Valentine’s Day for you and your sweetheart.
Love Potions From the Vine Tour
One of the most romantic and serene places in our city is the Denver Botanic Gardens. For the season of love, the Gardens are stepping it up with tours of aphrodisiac plants. Such plants are said to tease the senses and spark the imagination. The tours take place Feb. 8-10 and 13-15 so you have plenty of time for more on our list too!
Hearts for Art
If you and your Valentine are art lovers, then Hearts for Art at the Denver Art Museum is a perfect, unique way to celebrate the day of love. Between February 11-15, spread the love at the Art Museum by placing a paper heart on the floor in front of your “artwork crush.” You can pick one as a couple or compare which pieces of art you and your partner fell in love with! Don’t forget to snap a photo and tag #DenverArtMuseum and #HeartsForArt!
Comedy Works Valentine’s Weekend Shows
We all know laughter is such an important part of any relationship and what’s a better place to celebrate love with laughter than Comedy Works! Romantic dinners are nice and all, but this could be the year you and yours loosen up for a few drinks with one of the comedians headlining over Valentine’s weekend. Catch Chris Distefano at the downtown club in Larimer Square or Nick Guerra at the south club in Greenwood Village. You might recognize Chris and Nick from their appearances on late night shows and Comedy Central!
A Classical Romance
If you’re more in the market for a musical show instead, don’t miss “A Classical Romance,” at Boettcher Concert Hall! You’re bound to fall in love all over again thanks to an evening of music inspired by love. The Colorado Symphony will perform pieces influenced by the poetry of Pablo Neruda, Shakespeare, West Side Story, and Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo! You can catch a performance on February 14, 16, or 17.
Make this Valentine’s Day a special one by treating your loved one to a wonderfully unique weekend celebrating love. Whether or not you have a date, you can still take in all the happenings going on in Denver – just grab a few friends and head to any one of these great events.
