Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year when guys discard their beer-guzzling bravado to reveal the huge softy that lies under all that testosterone. Apart from the odd Don Juan, most guys approach Valentine’s Day with a distinct sense of trepidation, because they honestly have no idea of what constitutes an appropriate date. In their idealess desperation they turn to mothers, sisters, best friends and women’s magazines for advice – but they rarely find what they are actually looking for. Fortunately, for those living in South Florida, we have done all the hard work! So, sit back and enjoy as we present the top five things that you can do in Miami for Valentine’s Day this year.
Picnic on the beach
The endless golden stretches of Floridian coastline present an excellent opportunity for you to dust off the picnic basket and treat your significant other to a romantic afternoon, which features Mother Nature’s relaxing playlist of the ocean gently lapping the shore. But remember, drinking in public is illegal. So substitute the wine for sparkling fruit juice, lest you want to spend your romantic Miami night in a holding cell.
Salsa Lesson + Meal
Miami’s strong Latin influence makes it the perfect place to take salsa lessons with your girlfriend. She has probably asked you to go dancing in the past, but you have always rejected the idea without a second thought. This an opportunity to show her that you’re willing to step out your comfort zone to give her what she wants. As a bonus, most salsa clubs feature restaurants, which will undoubtedly be kitted out with romantic décor on Valentine’s Day. After an evening of standing on each other’s toes, you can enjoy a quiet meal of authentic Latin cuisine.
Most people have been in an airplane, but few have been suspended over a city under the chopping blades of a helicopter. While you fly over Miami you will see the city from a completely different perspective, and the exhilaration of the experience will linger with you for years to come.
Biscayne Sunset Cruise
The one thing we learnt from the film Titanic is that a boat trip can tickle your romantic nerves into a lovelorn overload. If you want to reignite the wavering flame of your love, then treat your significant other to a Biscayne Bay cruise in the late afternoon. The setting sun will serve as a picturesque backdrop to the romantic story of your lives together.
Valentine’s Day concert
The annual Miami Valentine’s Day concert is always a huge hit among romantic couples who are looking for a good way to spend the evening. During the concert, you will sit under the moon, eat dinner and listen to the emotions of a troubadour pouring into a microphone. But remember to book in advance, because seats are limited.
