What to do on Valentine’s Day in San Diego

Looking to impress your Valentine with some out of the box Valentine’s Day ideas? Let us give you a hand! It isn’t easy to think of that perfect Valentine’s Day date. Luckily, San Diego is full of cool things to do with that special someone. Here is San Diego Fly Rides’ handy guide for what to do on Valentine’s Day in San Diego.

Sunset at Sunset Cliffs

Sunset Cliffs is one of my favorite parks in San Diego. There just aren’t many places like Sunset Cliffs. Enjoy the view of the Pacific while walking on 40 foot cliffs above the beach. This is also a great spot for whale watching in the winter time. Bring along a picnic and stake out a spot in this 68-acre natural park in time to see the sun disappear over the horizon with your Valentine.

Valentine’s Day Sunset Cruise

Maybe you’re looking to watch the sunset, but you want to do something a little more active. Check out our Valentine’s Day Sunset Cruise for a guided tour of the La Jolla coastline to start off a romantic evening. We’ll even bring along some delicious rosé and chocolates to top off the evening. This fun and easy tour will definitely set you and your Valentine apart, and we’ll get you back in time for that dinner reservation.

Lamb’s Valentine’s Day Cabaret

Keep trying to express how much your Valentine means to you but can’t quite find the words? Let San Diego’s top performers do it for you through song at Lamb’s Valentine’s Cabaret. You’ll indulge in drinks and a three course dinner while being serenaded and entertained. The event takes place at the remarkable US Grant hotel in Gaslamp. Why not have a walk around and enjoy the nightlife after the show?

Coronado Valentine’s Day Fun Run

Afraid you might indulge a little too much on Valentine’s Day? Wipe those worries away with a fun jaunt on the beautiful Coronado Island. Challenge your Valentine to a race, or agree to take it easy and enjoy the bayside views together on foot. Either way, you’ll have earned all the chocolates from a heart-shaped box you can eat!

Valentine’s Day Themed Kids Cooking Class

Include the kids in the Valentine’s Day fun at Waypoint Public! Come hang with chef Richard Sweeney for an educational afternoon that culminates in an awesome lunch made by you and your kids. Get yourself off the hook for when just the two of you want to go out later that night!

Casablanca Movie Night

What better way to celebrate the season than with a classic love story? Hang out on the historic USS Midway and grab a drink while Ingrid Bergman and Humphery Bogart entertain you. Don’t forget to wear your best period attire!
