On Valentine’s Day, Vail, Colorado is for lovers. With exciting and romantic activities available from dusk to dawn, Vail is the perfect choice for a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway.
Breakfast: Start your day with an incredible breakfast at The Little Diner, a Vail legend!
Morning: Work up an appetite for the evening on Vail Mountain. Offering more than 5,000 acres of beautifully-maintained downhill runs, scenic cross-country trails, exciting terrain parks and back bowls, Vail Mountain has a well-deserved reputation as one of America’s top ski resorts.
Lunch: Grab a bite to eat on the mountain. If you’re anxious to get back to the slopes, The 10th offers ski-in, ski-out dining. Or enjoy the view and a bowl of famous buffalo chili at Two Elk.
Afternoon: Head back to the slopes or go a little crazy and book an afternoon of snowmobiling, tubing or bobsledding.
Late afternoon: Make time for a relaxing couples massage at Aria Spa, voted Best Spa and Best Massage by the Vail Daily. Return to your luxurious Vail vacation rental to rest and relax before dinner. While your sweetie soaks in the tub, slip out to the Golden Bear, Vail’s finest jewelry store, to buy something sparkly or stop by the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for chocolate dipped strawberries.
Dinner: Make dinner reservations at Kelly Liken. Selected an OpenTable.com Diners’ Choice 2012 winner and considered by many to be the best restaurant in Vail, Kelly Liken features superbly prepared and presented fresh seasonal cuisine in a richly-appointed romantic setting.
Apres Dinner: Take in the sights of downtown Vail. Sip cocktails and listen to the extraordinary pianist at Pepi’s or enjoy some smooth jazz at Sonnenalp before returning to your Vail cabin rental to open a bottle of champagne (don’t forget the chocolate-covered strawberries) and cuddle up in front of the fireplace for an evening of romance.
