Looking for last minute Valentine’s Day ideas for the weekend in Los Angeles? In the city of glitz and glamour, you can expect businesses and restaurants to go all out on the romance scale. While this is great for some, many prefer Valentine’s Day plans that are less expensive, more casual, less stuffy, and more fun! There are so many exciting things to do in Los Angeles this Valentine’s Day, no matter what your interests.
The Theme Park Date
Show your special Valentine a good time with one of the many different theme parks in Los Angeles—or see them all! You’ll get your taste of showbiz when you visit Universal Studios Hollywood, which includes both a behind-the-scenes tour of the working studio and an amusement park filled with thrill rides based on all your favorite movies
and television shows. Meanwhile, Six Flags Magic Mountain is a thrill seekers paradise, Pacific Park offers a romantic setting on the Santa Monica Pier, and Knotts Berry Farm holds the impressive title of first theme park in America!
The Outdoors Date
If you and your date are the outdoorsy type, you’ll be happy to know the sprawling Los Angeles mecca is more than just pavement and glitter. Beautiful natural landscapes surround the city and there’s certainly no shortage of opportunities for outdoor recreation. A Spokes N Stuff bike rental is always a great idea for an active date, and there’s nowhere better to rent and ride than on Ocean Front Walk, which passes through Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Marina del Rey, and Manhattan Beach for a total of 19 miles of trails. Other cool places to look into for hikers, campers, and nature enthusiasts include the Santa Monica Mountains, Angeles National Forest, and Channel Islands National Park.
The “A Little Bit of Everything” Date
If you’re an eclectic couple and you have some time to spare, you may want to spend some time attraction hopping between the Los Angeles attractions that draw so many tourists. You can mix it up a bit – some art, some showbiz, and a bit of relation and sightseeing sounds like a good date combination. Try starting at the MOCA Grand Avenue for a venture into modern art, hit up the Hollywood Museum or Madame Tussauds for a taste of showbiz and celebrity, and end the day with a romantic and relaxing Los Angeles Harbor Cruise with Spirit Cruises.
