Valentine’s Day is coming up fast, and what better way to spend it than under La Quinta’s desert stars? Our beautiful city is full of romantic destinations to make an evening you and your special someone will never forget. Check out these spots for a great start to a wonderful evening.
Out and About With Love in the Air
A romantic hike for two on one of La Quinta’s many scenic trails is often a date of choice for longtime city locals – after all, it’s hard to grow tired of the beautiful desert landscapes, and a picnic for two on the trails is a perfect place to while away a romantic afternoon. Whether it’s an evening spent hiking and stargazing at Joshua Tree National Park, or a weekend skiing and cozily snowed in at a private Bear Mountain cabin, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities for a La Quinta Valentine’s Day to remember.
However, don’t miss out on all the special Valentine’s Day events the city has to offer. Head down to Old Town La Quinta for a special Art Under the Umbrellas event, and marvel at local artists while enjoying the weather and the best shopping the city has to offer. If you and your special someone are looking for something a little more thrilling as far as a romantic outing goes, take the trip down to Cathedral City for the Cathedral City Hot Air Balloon Festival. You’ll enjoy live music, gourmet food trucks, and a view unlike any other as you and your loved one take a trip for two across the skies in a hot air balloon. For more festival fun and excitement, the Riverside Country Fair and National Date Festival kicks off Valentine’s Day weekend: the headliner music acts, fairground rides, and festival treats are excellent not only just for a romantic trip for two, but for a Valentine’s Day outing for the whole family.
A Special Dinner for Two at La Quinta’s Finest Restaurants
La Quinta is home to some of the finest restaurants in the nation, and on Valentine’s Day, these dining destinations take it to the next level with events and ambiance tailor-made for one of the most special nights of the year for couples. Morgan’s In the Desert will host its special Valentine’s Day Festival at the La Quinta Resort from February 12-14, a splendid finale for its Aphrodisiac Festival (running February 1-11). For a taste of Paris to add to the romance, both La Brasserie Bistro and Bar and Lavender Bistro have their own special Valentine’s Day menus. Twenty6 offers a more relaxed setting, and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse is hosting a Valentine’s Day brunch for early risers. Whatever spot you choose to feast your senses, book early – tables will fill up fast.
