Finding a romantic place to spend Valentine’s Day with your significant other isn’t difficult when you live in Golden Triangle in downtown Denver, CO. Here are our top 5 spots to spend a memorable Valentine’s Day evening.

1. Denver Botanic Gardens

Why buy a bouquet of flowers when you can take your partner to see breathtaking exhibits of living flowers? The Denver Botanic Gardens spans 23 acres and is one of the top 5 botanical gardens in the United States. In the winter, the lush landscaping is often covered with snow, creating a seemingly-magical winter landscape.

2. The Art Hotel

The Art Hotel isn’t just any old chain hotel — it’s a one-of-a-kind hospitality venue that melds innovative, modern guest stays with art appreciation. Rooms and hallways in the hotel feature stunning works of art to enjoy. The near-full-length window views of downtown Denver transform the entire hotel into a breathtaking art gallery.

3. Mile High Wine Tours

Wine tasting is a time-honored Valentine’s Day date tradition. However, few wineries know how to host a tasting as well as Mile High Wine Tours does. The company offers all-inclusive wine tours, complete with round-trip transportation and lunch or dinner at one of the wineries or restaurants on the tour. If you have special dietary needs, these can be accommodated. Just let Mile High Wine Tours know ahead of time.

4. Carriage Rides by Irish Rose Drafts

What’s more romantic than touring downtown Denver by horse-drawn carriage? Irish Rose Drafts is Denver’s premier carriage ride operator since 1990. They offer a one-of-a-kind experience for Valentine’s Day or any other special occasion. You can choose from a variety of routes depending on your time and cost restraints. We recommend The Everything Ride if you’re new to Denver or are visiting from another city.

The Everything Ride takes you through:

  • Denver Capitol
  • Trinity Church
  • Holy Ghost Church
  • Denver Performing Arts Complex
  • Denver Art Museum
  • Brown Palace

Bring a blanket and a thermos of hot chocolate or coffee to keep you warm as you take in the moment! Of course, don’t forget to bring your camera.

5. The Shops At Northfield – Outdoor Ice Skating

The Shops At Northfield, among many other amenities, also offer an old fashioned ice skating rink. Glide…or stumble your way into your ideal romantic evening while working up an appetite for your delightful Valentine’s day dinner. Don’t worry, The Shops At Northfield will continue to offer use of the rink until the end of February in the event you need to go back and practice your new-found love of ice skating.
