It’s that time of year again. Love is in the air, and couples are drawn to that one day when they can rub their love in everyone’s face. That’s right! It’s time for Valentine’s Day!
When thinking about your typical gifts, just remember that Valentine’s Day is a time to share your love, and the best way to do that is to be together. Fortunately, Nashville has plenty of things to do that will set this year’s Valentine’s Day apart. Here’s our Top 10 Nashville Valentine’s Day Adventure List:
1. Flying Lessons
In the words of Frank Sinatra, “Come fly with me. Let’s fly, let’s fly away.” Experience the thrill of a lifetime as you learn to fly with Nashville Flight Training. It’s the perfect gift for that person who already has everything.
2. Foodie Tour
There’s no better way to say “I love you” than with food. Take one of the Walk Eat Nashville Tours and experience six restaurants in one day. You can have an authentic Nashville experience and get your eat on.
Test your partner with a game of Escape. Will you be able to solve the puzzle in time to escape and win? Or will you lose? This fun activity gives couples the chance to work together in an effort to solve the ultimate real-life adventure game and get the chance to say “we escaped.”
4. Writer’s Night
A true Nashville experience for sure. Attend a Writer’s Night together and hear some of the best music Nashville has to offer. The Listening Room has live shows every week, including a special Valentine’s Day show. This is an experience worth repeating.
5. Glass Blowing
Glass it up! Who needs flowers when you can gift the experience of glass? The Franklin Glass Blowing Studio is certainly a great place to spend the day together. Learn the unique artistry of glass blowing and craft a souvenir to remember your day.
6. Hot Air Balloon Rides
Soar across the sky in a romantic hot air balloon. Take a romantic trip for two with Nashville Balloon Ride and experience a spectacular view as you leave the boundaries of Earth and look to the sky.
7. Ice skating
Join hands and glide across the ice. What a romantic way to stay warm and spend time with each another. The Centennial Sportsplex is open for public skating three days a week with morning and afternoon hours. So, lace up and grab hands for some fun time on the ice.
Who’s the speed demon in your relationship? Find out at Europa Go-Karts and Golf. If racing isn’t your thing, enjoy the two mini-golf courses, batting cages or arcade. If you’re busy on Valentine’s weekend, don’t worry. They’re open year round.
9. Cooking Class
Heat things up in the kitchen with a cooking class from The Chef and I. Classes are available for all skill sets and each one ends with you enjoying some delicious food. Learn to cook something new or just get out and have fun. Either way you’ll have a great time. Class size is limited, so register early!
10. Downtown Carriage Tour
Cheesy? Maybe. Romantic? Absolutely. Take a tour of downtown Nashville via horse-drawn carriage with Sugar Creek Carriages. Whether it’s an intimate party of two or a girls night out, there’s a carriage for you. Downtown tours can be booked for 15 to 20 minutes — even longer for those who want to trot the night away.
