L.A. is for Lovers: 3 Classic Ideas for Valentine's Day Featured

25 January 2019 Written by   Jeff Shotwell Published in blog

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, we've put together some Cupid-approved date ideas for you and your special someone. Let the City of Angels put you in the mood for love!

The Dinner Date

A romantic dinner never goes out of style. Pick a restaurant with cozy ambience and a killer wine list and you can't go wrong! Look for soft lighting to create an intimate atmosphere, and romantic staples like seafood and pasta (don't forget about chocolate for dessert.) Try Love and Salt, where even the name screams romance, for incredible Italian. Looking to expand your palate? Check out Little Sister for innovative Southeast Asian cuisine. L.A. is a foodie's dream, so you'll definitely be able to find the perfect place to wow your sweetheart.

Get Your Hearts Pumping

For the young or just the young at heart, why not head to an amusement park? The Santa Monica Pier is more than just a symbol of L.A. It's also the perfect place for couples! You can give your main squeeze a loving squeeze while enjoying the views from the top of the iconic Pacific Wheel, or take a stroll hand-in-hand through the aquarium while gazing at the exotic fish. There are sweet treats galore, and to up the romance factor the Pier will have a special art installation throughout February! This spot is especially good for new couples, because who has time to be nervous when you're hurtling down the Pacific Coaster?

Long Walks on the Beach

Talk about classic romance! With beautiful scenery and the lush sound of the waves, it's a classic for a reason. Time your walk for sunset to get the best lighting for snapping some cute photos together, and–if you're feeling a little old-school–write your initials in a heart on the sand. It's a great way to end the day (perhaps after your romantic dinner!) or to start the evening off before heading out for drinks
