Miami has plenty of things to do on Valentine’s Day this year. So many, in fact, that you may have a tough time picking just one. I’ve put together a list of my favorite events in the area to help you decide before the deadline this Thursday:
Dining with Dolphins at the Seaquarium
If you’re looking to impress an animal lover, treat your date to a night with the dolphins at the Miami Seaquarium. From 8-10 PM this Thursday, the Seaquarium will keep its doors open for couples to enjoy a candlelit dinner overlooking the Dolphin Harbor. Here’s a look at the menu from the Seaquarium’s website:

Second Annual Love in the Park
Popular grocery chain Publix is hosting its second annual Love in the Park Event from 5:30 – 10 PM in nearby Ft. Lauderdale complete with wine and live music. Couples are invited to bring picnic blankets or opt for the VIP lounge with tables and chairs to enjoy a variety of foods from Publix Aprons’ top chefs. Each couple will also be treated to a wine tasting and a bottle to accompany their meal.
General admission tickets are $40 a person, while VIP tickets are $63. A portion of ticket costs will benefit Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale, a nonprofit benefiting the Riverwalk Park and Downtown community of Fort Lauderdale.
Live Concert at the Deering Estate
This live jazz concert at former residence of Charles Deering, a prominent businessman and philanthropist of the late 19th century. The three floor stone mansion’s expansive lawn will host two jazz performers, opener Ariel Pocock and world-class singer, guitarist, and songwriter Allan Harris.
Admission to this event is just $20 per person, making it a steal in a city that is not always so budget-friendly. Couples are invited to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and a picnic basket to enjoy during the 7 PM performance. Afterwards, end the night with one of the most popular things to do in Miami – a stroll along the beach.
