Valentine’s Events in Colorado Springs

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

Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, which means that you can easily celebrate the weekend before or after! If you’re planning on celebrating Valentine’s Day in Colorado Springs, there are plenty of options for romantic restaurants, if you’re going the traditional route. But there are a lot of other creative ways to celebrate! 

If you’re looking for a fun gift, we recommend a gift card to a food, brewery, or cocktail tour! They can be purchased in any amount, be applied to any available public tour, and they never expire!

This Valentine’s Day, opt for something more memorable and unique! Here are 10 creative alternatives to celebrate Valentine’s in Colorado Springs:

This option is perfect if you’re a nature lover or are working on a budget.
