Heads up guys and gals – Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Whether you’re looking to take your wife out for a night on the town, or are just getting around to planning that first date for your new love interest, we’ve got you covered with how to plan the perfect date in our beloved city.
Paint the Town
For a unique night out, try booking a trip to a local paint night location like The Painted Palette. Enjoy a glass of wine or beer, and follow an instructor step-by-step to recreate the featured painting of the evening. A truly carefree option, these establishments provide everything you need to create your own masterpiece while allowing for a lot of fun and conversation.
Sail Away on a Dinner Cruise
Definitely not the best option if one of you is prone to sea sickness, but if you’re both up for a spin around the harbor, book a date on one of Baltimore’s many dinner cruise options. The Spirit of Baltimore features large dance floors, a live DJ, full-service bars, climate-controlled decks, and an open-air rooftop lounge. Best of all, it offers cruises year round. Their specialty cruises are the perfect option for Valentine’s Day. Visit their website for more information.
Go Out for Drinks
Not your average night out, heading out to Baltimore’s “Power Plant Live!” will guarantee a lively time. Located just one block from Inner Harbor, this collection of bars and restaurants ranges from mechanical bulls and country music to DJ booths and night club vibes. It even features many outdoor beer gardens for when you’d just rather sit around with a good IPA. There is truly something for every couple.
Do You Brunch?
If you’re trying to plan a more casual date, brunch is just about perfect. It’s safe to say that most everyone likes breakfast foods, and BONUS – mimosas and bloody marys are pretty much standard. A local favorite, Miss Shirley’s Café offers an award winning menu that is sure to impress. Not only was the café featured on Food Network’s Diner’s, Drive-Ins & Dives, it has also been praised by the likes of The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and Food Network Magazine.
Plan a Romantic Staycation
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor has some pretty grand hotels. But if you’re from the area, you may not ever get a chance to experience them in all their glory. Booking a night in one of our local inns can create that magical staycation you and your significant other need without having to go through all of the hassle that travel involves. Plus, when you stay in the heart of the city you’re able to explore the many options detailed above while on foot.
Whether you want to keep it simple or jazz it up, there are plenty of date night options allowing you to be the most charming date in Charm City for this coming Valentine’s Day.
