When you’re ready to leave the cold behind and swap it out for mild temperatures and a Florida-bound view, make sure to make plans to travel to Orlando this year when it’s time to book a well-deserve and romantic getaway over Valentine’s Day. Orland is a city that’s known for fun, but also comes with access to romantic activities in Orlando that are sure to inspire! The following are a few to be sure to add to your Valentine’s lineup when you’re looking to make the most of every romantic moment.
Enjoy the Wheel at ICON Park
The city of Orlando has a way of highlighting the fun and excitement of a getaway for couples that set their sights here over Valentine’s Day. Beyond the Disney theme parks, ICON park is just as popular amongst those visitors looking to make the most of rides, fun museums, and sensational area dining. If you’re looking to take your romantic getaway to new heights, hop on the Wheel at ICON Park and enjoy settling in for a ride on this impressive 400-foot observation structure. Climate controlled capsules make the ride a must and if you don’t want to share your romantic moment with others, there are options to book a private ride on the wheel as well.
Spend Time at Harry P. Leu Gardens
Quality time enjoyed with the one you love most in Orlando over Valentine’s Day is best spent surrounded by an amazing view. When you’re looking to set the romantic scene, head over to the Harry P. Leu Gardens and savor time strolling hand-in-hand through this 50 acres botanic garden brimming over with lush greenery and florals. There are plenty of benches along the way to settle in amongst the flowers and enjoy quiet conversation. The tropical appeal of this incredible destination will have you feeling like you’ve been transported to your own private island.
Savor the Swan Boat Experience at Lake Eola Park
Orlando is the ideal Valentine’s Day destination for those couples that love to spend time city-center just as much as they crave time out in nature. One of the most unique places in town that provides this convenient balance is Lake Eola Park. Settled right in the heart of downtown, Lake Eola Park provides guests with a tranquil retreat complete with options to take a romantic swan boat ride if they choose to. You’ll peddle your way across the water in a two-person vessel, taking in the sights of lakeside strollers as well as surrounding downtown buildings.
Dine at Chez Vincent
You don’t have to go all the way to Paris to enjoy the feeling of traditional French dining when you make your way to Orlando over Valentine’s Day. Instead of hopping on a plane, make your way to Chez Vincent in nearby Winter Park and savor a meal that’s inspired by the traditions and flavors of France. This upscale dining stop is a popular one amongst those looking to give their romantic dinner the European flair it deserves. Reservations are required and once you book your spot, you’ll find yourself settled into an elegant dining room looking over a robust and inspiring menu. Whether you go with the quail and raspberry sauce or rack of lamb topped with blue cheese your tastebuds will thank you for the experience.
Don’t Forget Disney
Of course, if your Valentine’s Day getaway was set for Orlando because you and your loved one are both Disney enthusiasts, then you won’t find anything more romantic on earth than watching the fireworks go off over Cinderella’s castle. This year you can celebrate the day in Magic Kingdom with your other half. Grab a milkshake with a Mickey straw or savor the flavors of the Epcot International Festival of the Arts.
Try Eddie V’s Prime Seafood with Live Jazz Music
When a savory seafood and steak dinner would take your Valentine’s adventure over the top, a stop at Eddie V’s Prime Seafood Restaurant is a must during your getaway. Situated near Big Sand Lake in Orlando, this restaurant is known for its upscale ambiance which lends itself to a romantic moment—especially in light of the fact that this locale hosts live jazz performances in its lounge. Take time to unwind with the one you love most and add some sensational flavor and wine options into the mix as well. You’ll enjoy an elegant setting that’s as romantic as it is palate-pleasing!
Spend Time at Quantum Leap Winery
If a wine tasting is where you and your significant other prefer to connect, Quantum Leap Winery will do the trick. Located at 1312 Wilfred Drive in Orlando, Quantum Leap Winery is a unique urban winery that serves up sensational flavors in their tasting room which is open for private events during the winter months by reservation and also offers tours upon request.
