Valentine’s Day is just over a month away and, if you are like many people, you are already trying to make plans to impress your partner. If you live in Decatur, you are just about 20 minutes away from some of the best activities for the holiday. There are several hot spots in Atlanta that are sure to please your sweetheart. Here are the best spots for your big evening.
1. Moulin Rouge
If you’ve seen the movie, you know just how beautiful a love story it is. The Atlanta Ballet is putting on its version of Moulin Rouge as a way to kickoff February. The show runs from February 5 through 13 and tickets start at only $20.
Make an evening of it. Picture a lovely romantic dinner followed by a night at the ballet. Your loved one will be floating on air when you walk out of the theater. Nothing says that your Valentine’s Day surprise has to take place on V-day!
2. Atlanta Botanical Garden
Let’s say you are looking for something a bit slower paced. The Atlanta Botanical Garden may be exactly what you are looking for. A trip through the gardens can make for an incredibly romantic day. Grab a sandwich or quick snack at the garden’s cafe or take a class before you head out on to explore. You and your loved one can learn how to arrange flowers, make art and more.
If you would prefer to head out in the evening, there is normally an event in the garden on Valentine’s Day. It’s difficult to say exactly what the Atlanta Botanical Garden is planning for the big night because their activities change every year. For more information or to make reservations, call 404-876-5859.
3. Hot Air Ballooning
To be honest, this activity isn’t right for everyone. If your partner is afraid of heights, this activity may be a bit much. If, on the other hand, your honey has dreamed of riding through the evening sky in a hot air balloon, this is the perfect way to surprise them. The views from above and the memories you create make this event well worth the cost.
Balloons launch either just before sunrise or just before sunset, allowing you to pick the perfect time. Rides vary in length from 45 to 90 minutes, and you will need to make a reservation far in advance as these rides book quickly. Not surprisingly, Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest of the year for Balloons Over Georgia. Call 678-947-9866 to make your reservations.
