Valentine’s Day in Long Beach

Valentine's Day

Dinner and a movie is always great, but there are so many more options locally. If you’re seeking a fresh idea, here are a few ideas you may want to try.

1. Stroll Through Downtown

Start your evening with a leisurely stroll through the heart of Long Beach. Admire the city lights from the iconic Ferris Wheel at The Pike Outlets or pop into nearby Laugh Factory for a comedy show. If you enjoy craft beer, make a pit stop at Beachwood Blendery. You may also want to have a nightcap and enjoy the cozy ambiance of the Blind Donkey. Cap off your evening with a romantic dinner at the Ammatoli, an inviting restaurant with mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine.

2. El Dorado Nature Center

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and immerse yourselves in the tranquility of the El Dorado Nature Center. Take a leisurely walk hand in hand along the nature trails, surrounded by lush greenery and the soothing sounds of nature. It’s a perfect setting for couples looking to connect with each other while appreciating the beauty of the outdoors.

3. Hit the Water

For a date with a splash of adventure, consider renting a Duffy boat and cruising along the picturesque Alamitos Bay. If you’re feeling more energetic, opt for water bikes or kayaks to explore the coastline together. Or you might want to experience a touch of Venetian romance with a Gondola Getaway, creating unforgettable memories on the serene waters of Naples canals.

4. Visit A Rancho

Step back in time and explore Long Beach’s rich history with a visit to one of its historic ranchos. Wander through the gardens and adobe buildings of Rancho Los Alamitos or discover the charm of Rancho Los Cerritos. These well-preserved sites offer a glimpse into Southern California’s past, providing a unique and educational backdrop for your date night.

5. Get Artsy

Indulge your creative side by exploring Long Beach’s vibrant art scene. Immerse yourselves in Latin American and Caribbean art at MOLAA or wander through the galleries in the East Village. If you’re feeling inspired, participate in a Brushstrokes and Beverages or Sip and Paint event to create your own masterpiece. You can also create your own tour of public art scattered throughout the city, adding a touch of spontaneity to your artistic adventure.

In Long Beach, the possibilities for a unique and memorable date night are endless. So, whether you’re enjoying the city lights, connecting with nature, exploring history, hitting the water, or getting artsy, Long Beach provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic and unforgettable evening.
