It might seem strange but we think there’s something undeniably romantic about aquariums. Perhaps it’s the dim lighting, the elegance of the underwater creatures or the simple beauty of the light playfully refracting along the walkways, either way, there’s no denying that the aquarium is a great option for Valentine’s Day. Even better, some aquariums are really getting into the spirit of Valentine’s Day by offering intimate dining experiences. Look up your local aquarium to organise a Valentine’s Day dinner that will truly leave them speechless.
Visiting the zoo is a great idea no matter the occasion but it’s an especially good choice on Valentine’s Day. Many zoos organise their own romantic events to suit the occasion, with some even offering dining under the stars and live music (gentle enough for the animal residence, of course). Some others even organise gourmet hampers for you to enjoy a romantic picnic on your zoo date. If your Valentine loves zoos, or even just adores animals, then the zoo has your romantic Valentine’s Day date taken care of.
