Valentine’s Day is here, meaning that you need to set some time aside to spend with that special someone in your life. Although you could do something while ensconced in the comforts of your own home, that would be a shame when there are so many opportunities for romance that can be found throughout the City of Philadelphia.
A Memorable Valentine’s Day In The City Of Love
If you are still searching for the best way to spend Valentine’s Day, please consider these examples of what can be found:
- The Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest is open until March 1, meaning that it is not too late to spend a romantic night skating out on the ice. Better still, the winterfest comes with all of the amenities of the Delaware River Waterfront, which range from mouth-watering food and cocktails to shopping and other seasonal attractions.
- For sightseeing, head on over to the John F. Kennedy Plaza, or as it is better known, the LOVE Park. Its sculpture of the word is its most famous attraction, but the rest of its sites are well worth seeing. If you are interested in either mementos or a bite to eat, rest assured that the plaza has the facilities needed to accommodate those needs as well.
- The Race Street Pier is a secluded oasis of peace, perfect for a picnic with that special someone out on Valentine’s Day. Sitting in the shadow of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, it offers a spectacular view of the Delaware River that contrasts well with the trees planted along its length. In fact, the Race Street Pier sits so low that it is on the edge at high tide, making it an excellent spot to watch the soothing rhythm of the water.
- Whatever your palate and whatever the palate of your special someone, know that Philadelphia restaurants are prepared to serve everything ranging from French fare and Italian favorites to Chinese classics and Mexican tapas. In other words, you and your special someone are sure to find something suited to both of your palates.
Dinner & A Night In
Since Valentine’s Day falls on a long weekend in 2015, it would be a shame to miss the chance for a romantic meal and a night at one of the hotels. Likewise, consider ending the day with a romantic night at Morris House Hotel and then booking yourselves a room (see our room rates here). Like the rest of the places mentioned here, we are prepared to help couples make their Valentine’s Day something to remember. So get ready to luxuriate in the elegance of our surroundings before waking up to the coziness and comfort of our catering. All while ensconced in one of Philadelphia’s finest historic buildings.
