Valentine’s Day in Atlanta: A Guide to Romance
1. Stroll Through the Park
There’s no better place to start your Valentine’s Day than in the heart of the city. Head to Midtown and take a stroll through Piedmont Park with your hands intertwined, surrounded by beauty. There are extensive walking trails, benches to take a rest, and bicycles for rent. You can even pack a lunch and enjoy a lovely picnic on the hillside!
2. See What’s in Bloom
Don’t tire yourself out too much at Piedmont Park. Save some energy to walk around the Atlanta Botanical Garden as well! This floral paradise is adjacent to the park, making it the ideal next stop on your Valentine’s Day adventure. Make sure you check out their vast collection of orchids in the Fuqua Center. It’s one of the largest in the world!
3. Take Romance to New Heights
The Ponce City Market isn’t just a spectacular destination for shopping sprees. When you take the elevator to the roof, you’ll find a treasure trove of activities waiting for you! Challenge each other to mini golf, win prizes at carnival games, or sip wine and gaze out at the panoramic skyline views. You can even go ice skating while you’re up there!
4. Enjoy a Gourmet Meal
Midtown Atlanta is full of top-rated restaurants, so you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect option for a romantic meal together. Some of our favorites include Bacchanalia, Campagnolo, and The Lawrence. If you go to The Lawrence, make sure you try their cocktails. Choose one of the tasty options on the drink menu or tell them what flavors you like and they’ll whip something special up. And, tell them Stonehurst Place sent you!
5. Make It Dinner and a Show
When planning your trip, don’t forget to check for Valentine’s Day concerts and events at our Atlanta theaters. Synchronicity Theatre, Alliance Theatre, Center Stage Theater, and Fox Theatre are all excellent options. After a stunning performance, you’ll know why we’re known as the “Heart of the Arts!”
