Miami may not be Paris, or Florence, or even New York, but it’s a romantic city, and there are far worse places for you and your significant other to spend Valentine’s Day this year. With beautiful beaches, elegant restaurants, and plenty of special events and shows, there are a lot of options for couples to spend their special day. Here are four great ideas for couples looking to make Valentine’s Day plans in Miami.
An Evening with Andrea Bocelli
If you and your significant other like music, what better way to spend Valentine’s Day than to treat your date to a concert put on by one of the world’s most renowned singers? Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli is coming to South Florida on Valentine’s Day for the sixth straight year, and this is becoming a tradition that is not to be missed. Bocelli is performing on both Saturday the 13th and Valentine’s Day night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino up the road in Hollywood, FL, so you can go Sunday night to cap off a romantic Valentine’s Day or go Saturday night as a preamble to your V-Day celebration. Either way, spending an evening with Andrea Bocelli is one of the most romantic ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Broadway Love Songs
Andrea Bocelli isn’t the only musical option on Valentine’s Day; you can also take in a performance from members of Florida Grand Opera’s Young Artists program. These are some of the best young musicians in the world playing a wide range of romantic songs. The concert is being held at Steinway Piano Gallery in Coral Gables, and tickets are free. The best part is that the concert starts at 3 in the afternoon, so you can take in the matinee show and still have plenty of time to go to your favorite restaurant and take a romantic walk on the beach before your Valentine’s Day comes to an end.
Turnberry Isle Resort
Up in Aventura, Turnberry Isle Resort has everything you need for a memorable Valentine’s Day. It starts at the club’s Spa & Fitness Center, which is offering a Couples Fijian Body Butter Massage all weekend long, as well as a Fijian Ritual featuring a milk bath soak and body exfoliation using Fijian sugar scrub. You and your beau can be pampered while also enjoying complimentary champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. Afterwards, you don’t have to go anywhere, because both the Bourbon Steak and Corsair restaurants at the Turnberry are offering three-course meals that will have your mouth watering, not to mention the romantic setting. You could spend your entire Valentine’s Day at Turnberry Isle Resort and not regret it one bit.
Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
If all else fails, it’s never a bad idea to spend Valentine’s Day at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, the spot that many consider to be the most romantic in Miami. Aside from a house full of spectacular rooms and incredible artwork, the grounds of Vizcaya are full of breathtaking gardens, sculptures, and grottos, not to mention a great view of Biscayne Bay. You and your date could walk around all day and not grow tired of the astonishing scenery at Vizcaya Museums & Gardens, making it the perfect romantic spot to visit on Valentine’s Day.
