Making Orlando your destination of choice makes the experience that much better! The following activities and attractions are just a few of the many reasons you’ll want to book your romantic getaway to Orlando this Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re a couple that loves relaxing together or you’re ready to make the most of the city fun, Orlando has it all waiting just for you.
Take a Stroll Through the Gardens
A trip to Orlando in February for Valentine’s Day often means couples can count on mild weather and great options for getting outdoors and enjoying the sunshine. When you’re looking for a romantic twist to add to the mix this holiday, be sure to set aside time on your Valentine’s Day itinerary for a stroll hand in hand through the Harry P. Leu Gardens. Located at 1920 N. Forest Avenue, these gardens offer up a gorgeous mix of florals, towering trees, water features, and trails to explore. Sprawling across 50 acres of terrain, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to beautiful settings to enjoy quality time together. From the 200-year-old oaks to the tropical flower beds, it’s a place that’s bound to inspire.
Enjoy Dinner and a Movie
Couples that are looking for an intimate and more traditional take on Valentine’s Day fun in Orlando will find it when they plan on dinner and a movie at the Enzian Theater and Eden Bar. Found at 1300 Orlando Avenue, the Enzian Theater is an arthouse cinema stop that’s truly one-of-a-kind! Those enjoying a movie here will find a lineup of indie films alongside cult classics. It’s a charming theater that offers up a unique take on movie-going which couples are sure to love. If cravings come calling before or after the show, head over to next door Eden Bar, where you can enjoy a meal or make it a night with handcrafted cocktails included. The outdoor dining at Eden Bar is loved for its twinkling overhead lights and romantic atmosphere that’s hard to top.
Book a Valentine’s Day Show
For the couple that can’t wait to enjoy a performance while they’re in Orlando over Valentine’s Day, booking tickets for a show at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is a good place to start. This sprawling arts complex hosts everything from Broadway and ballet to orchestras and fan-favorite musicals throughout the year. Located at 445 S. Magnolia Avenue, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts can host upward of 4,700 guests across its multiple theaters and performance spaces. Those who are in town over Valentine’s Day will be in time to catch Moulin Rouge The Ballet from February 9th through the 12th in 2023. The Philadelphia Orchestra is up next, starting February 17th for those who are planning to stay in the city past the holiday. Tickets for these events can be booked online in advance.
Make the Most of a Ride Around the Wheel at ICON Park
A top Orlando attraction for visitors year-round is the 400-foot Wheel at Icon Park. Over Valentine’s Day, the setting takes a turn for the romantic with those heading over to International Drive offered options to book a trip around the wheel complete with two glasses of champagne included! Drinks can easily be picked up at the deck bar in advance and if you’re looking to make the moment that much more meaningful, be sure to book your ride around sunset. It’s an incredible way to take in the Orlando landscape from above and a sure way to let your loved one know you care.
Savor a Spa Day
When rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation are your idea of the perfect Valentine’s Day experience, Orlando is a city packed with spa options to choose from. That said, the Ritz-Carlton Spa is often a fan-favorite thanks to the many world-class services available on-site and the elegant surroundings too. Whether you go for a couple’s massage or make it a full-day package complete with wraps, exfoliating treatments, and Champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries to top it all off, it’s a pampered experience that promises to be worth your while.
