    6 Unique Valentine's Day Dates

    The most romantic day of the year is upon us, so are you ready to make your sweetheart swoon? Going out on Valentine's Day is important for all couples. New couples will find it's a great opportunity to spend time with one another and get to know each other more. Couples that have been together for a long time can treat themselves to a special activity that keeps the romance sizzling. The question remains, though: what should a great Valentine's Day date look like? We've got you covered with these six unique ideas, specific to Floridians!

    1. Watch the Sunset on Horseback
    Most Florida beaches offer horseback riding. Book a ride with your honey just as the sun is setting for an unforgettable experience. If you're not into horses, hop on a sunset cruise. This idea also works as a fun group date. Consider having a beach bon fire ready to snuggle beside after the sun goes down.

    2. Enjoy Nature
    Active couples can hit one of Florida's many state parks for a hiking, camping, or kayaking adventure. Being surrounded by nature not only de-stresses you, but you'll spend quality, one-on-one time with your loved one.

    3. Drink Up!
    Take a tour of a local brewery or winery. Not only will you learn something, but you'll enjoy tasting samples while you do it. To commemorate the day, be sure to bring home a bottle of your favorite brew or wine.

    4. Take a Class Together
    The couple that learns together, stays together! Take a class based on your interests: cooking, salsa dancing, painting, pottery, or even a physical class like aerial yoga or rock climbing. You could unlock a new hobby or couple's ritual.

    5. Send Each Other On a Scavenger Hunt
    This requires a bit of set-up, but we promise it is well worth it! Send each other on a scavenger hunt that hits your favorite places, includes some hobbies, or inside jokes. If you're pressed for time, partake in a local scavenger hunt. They usually involve finding certain items in downtown shops.

    6. A Romantic Dinner at Isle Casino® Racing Pompano Park
    Plus, don’t forget… any night is a romantic night when you dine at either of our fine dining restaurants at the Isle®. Be sure to make a reservation in advance, as our seats fill up quickly for Valentine’s Day!

    Our steak and seafood lovers will enjoy Farraddays® Steakhouse. Begin your meal by sharing oysters on the half shell. Then, enjoy a wet aged New York Strip steak, or succulent Grilled Atlantic Salmon served with orange relish.

    If Italian is more your style, reserve a table at Bragozzo® where we serve your old world favorites with a twist. Try the Lobster Francaise, a cold water lobster tail drizzled with lemon butter sauce and served on a bed of wilted baby spinach and capellini. We also have an extensive award-winning wine list to complement whatever meal you choose.

    Looking for more casual dining experience? Try Farmer's Pick Buffet®. Our extensive variety satisfies everyone, and the local, fresh ingredients will have you coming back for seconds. Be sure to leave room for dessert!
