Rocky Mountain Food Tours

Want to get creative this Valentine’s Day? There are plenty of unique ways to celebrate with your special someone in Colorado Springs!

Valentine’s Day is always a fun excuse to wear something fancy and eat at your favorite restaurant in the middle of potentially the most boring month of the year. If you’re planning on celebrating Valentine’s Day in Colorado Springs, there are plenty of options for romantic specials and fixed-priced menus at some of the best local restaurants. However, if you don’t plan far in advance, it can turn out to be a stressful night of trying to find a restaurant that takes last minute reservations. Eventually you might just swear off celebrating the holiday altogether.

This Valentine’s Day, opt for something more creative and unique you’ll beat the crowds and avoid the ever-stressful reservation dash. Here are five creative alternatives for this year’s Valentine’s Day in Colorado Springs:

 

1. Book a Couples’ Massage at the Base of Pikes Peak

SunWater Spa sits tucked away just minutes from the bustling Manitou Avenue. If you’re looking for a romantic and relaxing date, look no further. Book a couples’ massage and then sit in one of SunWater Spa’s cedar pools as you look out on Downtown Manitou Springs and watch the sunset over Pikes Peak.

Thursday, February 14, 2019  5:00-12:00 PM  | Brooklyn’s on Boulder Street

Treat your special someone to a prohibition inspired Valentine’s Day. Brookyn’s on Boulder is a modern spin on the prohibition era speakeasy. From the street, it’s disguised as a small haberdashery, however, once you’re inside, expect craft gin cocktails, romantic mood lighting, and some of the best bartending in town. Visit Brooklyn’s on Valentine’s Day this year and you’ll receive free tasters of their creme de rose liqueur and a chance to win a free cocktail. Just bring someone special and be ready to play their version of the newlywed game!

 

So whether you’re trying to avoid the crowds or you’re looking to mix things up, any of these ideas will be sure to make this year’s Valentine’s Day a memorable one! And if you’re not able to hop on a food tour this time, it’s never too late. We offer public and private tours all year round!

Cheers, Your Rocky Mountain Food Tours Team

(So, what’s a food tour, anyway…?)
