February 12, 2018

The most romantic holiday of the year is just two days away. We trust that you’ve already planned out a perfect night full of dreamy surprises, BUT just in case you haven’t, here are some great last-minute date options in or around Pittsburgh:

For the Adventurer
Pittsburgh offers tons of great museums and unique activities, if your Valentine is looking for a fun-filled holiday. Visit the Schenley Park Ice Skating Rink for a special night under the stars or Phipps Conservatory for a romantic day time date surrounded by the beautiful botanical gardens. If you are planning to celebrate over the weekend, Phipps Conservatory is open on Saturday evening.

For the Art-Inspired
Express your creativity by blowing your own glass art at the Pittsburgh Glass Center, or stop by the Candle Lab in Lawrenceville to pour your own scented soy candles. These options are a fun way to make memories while enjoying each other’s company.

For the Hopeless Romantic
Surprise your loved one with a night’s stay at one of the wonderful local hotels. Pamper them with a spa treatment at the Fairmont hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh or share a candlelit dinner at the Commoner in Hotel Monaco.

For the Sweet Tooth
We all know that the real way to your loved-one’s heart is through their stomach. Take your sweetheart on a trip to Duck Donuts in Upper St. Clair for a treat.  These made-to-order customizable donuts are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Head to Waffallonia in Squirrel Hill for freshly made Belgian waffles or make a pit stop at Naturoll Creamery for rolled ice cream!
