How to Spend Valentine’s Day 2017 in Detroit
If you’re looking for innovative ways to spend Valentine’s Day 2017 in the greater Detroit metropolitan area or throughout Michigan, here are some ideas for couples to consider:
Hit the slopes. The state of Michigan actually ranks second in the nation for the number of ski areas found across the state- 51 total! Take advantage of the chilly winter weather and hit the slopes, whether you like downhill skiing or cross country. Then, warm up in the lodge over a hot beverage together.
Head to the Detroit Zoo. The Detroit Zoo hosts their annual Valentine’s Day event, Love Gone Wild, on February 14, which offers an intimate glance into the love lives of the many animals that call the zoo home. This 21 and older event welcomes both singles and couples to enjoy not only the animals, but drinks and hors d’oeuvres, too.
Enjoy a some live music. Going to a concert is a great idea for a great date, and luckily, you’re sure to find an event that suits the tastes of both you and your significant other in the Detroit area, whether you’re looking to rock out or chill out. Here’s a list of some great concerts to check out for the perfect Valentine’s Day date.
Share dinner with a view. Try something new this year- like having dinner at Coach Insignia, where you can take in views of the sparkling Detroit skyline, the river and Canada. However, make your reservations sooner rather than later! If the restaurant is totally booked for Valentine’s Day, try a pre- or post-Valentine’s Day date.
Indulge in local culinary eats and drinks. Do you love all things Michigan? Then head to the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market on Saturday, February 11 for the Michigan Love Celebration to taste treats from local food trucks, breweries, and distilleries. Or, here’s a list of some of the best breweries in Michigan to try some local craft beers. Fan of grapes instead? Try these Michigan wineries with your loved one.
Go ice skating. The Rink at Campus Martius Park is always a great place to head for date night. Weather permitting, the Rink is open through March 5, so get there and skate the night away with your significant other.
Plan a romantic spring getaway. If venturing out or traveling during the cold season isn’t really your thing, surprise your loved one by planning a spring getaway. Michigan.org sums up some of the best vacation packages and deals in the state for hotels, dining and attractions.
