As one of the most romantic cities in the United States, Los Angeles is the perfect setting for a couple’s retreat. With an expansive coastline, beautiful views, and a dynamic culture, it’s an easy place to set the mood. So just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’re sharing some of the most romantic activities in and around LA.
Take A Stroll
It may sound cliché, but we can’t deny that taking a stroll hand in hand is romantic. Whether it’s along a beach, in the city, or through a garden, LA offers several romantic settings. With over 80 miles of coastline, head west from LEVEL Furnished Living and take a walk along the beautiful sandy beaches. If you’re interested in art and culture, check out Urban Light at LACMA, where you can stroll through over two hundred restored antique street lamps. Or, take a stroll through a garden, such as the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, or the James Irvine Japanese Garden.
Take A Class
Learning something new together with your significant other is a great way to bond over an experience. From cooking and painting classes to surf lessons or dance classes, if there’s something you’ve been dying to try out, chances are LA offers it. Try a salsa dance class nearby LEVEL at LA Live, or check out Paint and Sip Studio LA where you can uncork your creativity.
Private Sunset Air Tour
Take date night to a higher level. A private air tour above the city during sunset is one of the most romantic ways to spend an evening with your partner. Orbic Air flies you above Beverly Hills, Sunset Strip, the iconic Hollywood Sign, and over the breathtaking coastline. Perfect for a special occasion, this tour is a unique adventure you won’t soon forget. So pop the champagne, and enjoy the view.
If you’re a fan of horseback riding, LA’s landscape is a great place to do so. From the Santa Monica mountains to along the beach, tour companies offer sunrise, sunset, or moonlight adventures. If you’re looking to stay closer to downtown, we suggest riding up to the Hollywood Sign to take in sweeping views of the city beneath you.
Head To The Beach
We’ve mentioned doing the above activities at the beach, but the beach itself offers endless romantic activities. Head to Santa Monica and take a ferris wheel ride, go rollerblading along the boardwalk, or rent a boat. Or make a day of it sunbathing and swimming with your significant other. Pack a picnic to enjoy on the sand, and your day’s complete!
