Our Favorite Valentine’s Day Date Ideas
The perfect spot for you to celebrate love on Valentine’s Day is here in the Centennial state. Below are some options for everyone, whether you like your romance rustic or refined.
Estes Park River Walk
If you’re into scenic strolls, the Estes Park River Walk follows the Big Thompson/Fall River through downtown Estes Park. There are benches for pondering, cafes for nibbling, and boutiques for browsing. You can even get a massage along the way. While you’re in the area, explore Roosevelt National Forest and Rocky Mountain National Park, go ice skating, or take a sleigh ride.
Yampah Spa: Hot Springs Vapor Cave in Glenwood Springs
Want a different take on the hot springs experience? The Yampah Spa offers natural underground rock chambers heated by the steam from the mineral springs that flow through the area. You can also order massages and traditional spa treatments, such as facials and haircuts.
Strawberry Park Hot Springs in Steamboat Springs
Colorado has many amazing hot springs, and each of them offers a distinctly romantic experience. Strawberry Park is a day resort where you can book a private pool or a geothermal massage in a setting so rustic, you’ll need four-wheel drive to get there.
St. Regis Resort in Aspen
If high romance is your aim, the St. Regis Resort delivers. You’ll get a personal butler to unpack your suitcase and iron your clothes. Flowers, chocolate-covered strawberries and sparkling wine are standard. The Bloody Mary bar offers room service, and the rooms are all equipped with gorgeous views. You may never want to leave your room, but if you do, the restaurants, skiing, and live entertainment of Aspen await.
The Cliff House in Manitou Springs
The Cliff House looks like a castle and offers a Romantic Escape package that comes with upscale accommodations, chocolate-covered strawberries, breakfast, and a single rose. While you’re in the area, you can cuddle close to your sweetie on a lamp-lit cave tour. If you’re looking for something more vigorous, climb the Manitou Incline. Not for the faint of heart, the Manitou Incline is a former cable car track that goes nearly straight up for a mile!
Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City
Hold hands and take in the view from America’s highest suspension bridge. Since 1929, lovers have snuck kisses from the Royal Gorge, hanging 1,250 feet over the Arkansas River. You can also book a romantic dinner/railroad ride through the Royal Gorge.
