Few days left until Valentine's Day. We have secured a reservation for one of the best restaurants in town and a hotel room in a 4-star hotel. (Do you have one?) Your night is well planned. But what about tags? And what about the rest of the weekend?
Fortunately, Phoenix offers a lot of romantic activities for both couch potatoes and adventurous lovers. Many of these activities are available all year round, but why does romance end on February 15th?
Take a walk in the Desert Botanical Garden
Take a walk through one of the many beautiful paths in the garden and see some of the most beautiful plants in the desert. The Sonoran Desert Nature Loop Trail offers unparalleled views of the gardens and Papago Park. For a limited time, watch the garden come alive at night with a spectacular electric dessert light show.
Hike one of Phoenix's most central mountains and see the valley from above. Early risers can see the sunrise from the Dobbins Lookout on the north side of the mountain. If you want to sleep, hike South Mountain late in the afternoon to watch the sunset.
Let's spend the morning taking a walk in the Japanese Friendship Garden.
Find your zen among the waterfalls and koi fish while enjoying Phoenix's mild weather this Valentine's Day. Couples can spend a lazy afternoon admiring the intricate detail of Japanese gardening and feeding the 300 fish that call the garden home.
Rent a boat at Lake Tempe Town Lake
Soak in the water in the afternoon, soak up the sun and exercise in Tempe. Couples can rent a foot row to water for sightseeing and romance days.
Fly to the sky with a hot air balloon
Fly in the sky with Hot Air Expeditions in February of this year. Jump over the valley in a private hot air balloon and finish the morning with champagne and breakfast at Vincent's on Camelback Restaurant.
