Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and Cupid is getting his arrows ready! The most romantic holiday of the year is a great chance to show your sweetheart just how much they mean to you. And Atlanta offers plenty of opportunities to spend quality time with the one you love. You could go the traditional route: chocolates, flowers, and dinner. While there is nothing wrong with this plan, sometimes you want to shake things up. Here are a few ideas for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day in Atlanta.
Hot Air Balloon Ride
Take to the skies and soar over Atlanta in the arms of your love with a hot air balloon ride at Atlanta Balloon Glow in Piedmont Park. This is the first time this event will be taking place, so you can get in on the ground floor of a new Atlanta tradition! There will be delicious food trucks to enjoy, along with a complimentary champagne toast for VIP ticket holders! Spend some time alone in the air with the one who makes you feel like you can fly!
Valentines in the Botanical Garden
Sure you could buy a bouquet of flowers. Or you could surround yourself with the colorful beauty of thousands of flowers at the Atlanta Botanical Garden! Enjoy a beautiful 3-course pre-fixe meal, followed by a stroll around the grounds where you will experience some of the most gorgeous flowers in the world! The Gardens will be themed in Old Hollywood style. Head through the Roman Holiday Gardenhouse Gallery and make your way to Day Hall, Where The Great Gatsby will play out around you, complete with live big-band music!
Valentine’s Comedy Night
For those looking for a real change of pace, check out a Valentine’s Day themed improv show at Dad’s Garage. You can laugh your heart out at the comedy stylings of some of Atlanta’s funniest improvisers. Why go for the tired old V-Day cliches when you could have an experience you’ll never forget?
