Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re still looking for romantic ideas, we’ve come up with some unique options to get your heart pumping.

Milwaukee Public Museum’s Planetarium and IMAX Theater – Milwaukee, WI

Spend an evening under the stars at the Daniel M Soref Planetarium, the largest in the state, located in the Milwaukee Public Museum. The most romantic program in the planetarium’s repertoire is definitely “Romancing the Stars,” playing before and on Valentine’s Day. Constellations that have romantic significance will be pointed out, and a rose and chocolates will also be handed out to each couple. “Romancing the Stars” has showtimes on Feb. 11, 12, and 14.

Harrison Hills Sleigh Rides – Merrill, WI

Just north of Wausau, you can find Harrison Hills Sleigh Rides. Ride through the northwoods on a scenic sleigh ride. You can take up to 14 people on the ride, but if it’s just you and a loved on on Valentine’s Day, you can save it for just the two of you. Make sure to reserve a spot early!

L’ecole de la Maison – Elkhart Lake, WI

Why do dinner and a movie on Valentine’s Day when you can make food together? Classes at L’ecole de la Maison in Elkhart cover everything from breakfast to dessert and are open to the public. Course lengths include 2-days, 4-5 hours, or 2-3 hours, depending on the month. If you’re looking for an activity the weekend before Valentine’s Day, you can sign up to learn how to make a European brunch or French desserts. Classes range from $125/person for workshops to $295 for two-day courses.

Valentine Candlelight Ski & Hike – Sheboygan

For the more active couples, the Valentine Candlelight Ski & Hike could be an ideal romantic activity. Grab your cross-country skis and glide (or hike) your way across a two-mile trail illuminated by over 200 tiki torches. Afterwards, snuggle up by the fireplace and grab some refreshments. The Candlelight Ski & Hike is on February 11 from 6-9pm.
