7 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Metro Atlanta


This year requires a little more creativity when it comes to planning Valentine’s Day celebrations. If you’re still looking for unique ideas, we’ve come up with 7 fun ways to safely celebrate the holiday for 2021. Even though the events listed below are held outdoors, please remember to wear masks when required and maintain six feet of distance.  

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day Hike: Head to Panola Mountain State Park for a Valentine’s Day Couple hike on both February 13th and 14th. 

Valentines in the Garden: Decades of Love: The Atlanta Botanical Garden is hosting a romantic Valentine’s event from 7 pm – 11 pm on February 14th. Attendance is limited, so please purchase tickets in advance. 

Order-In: Contact your favorite restaurant and ask if they are offering special ‘to-go’ meals for Valentine’s Day. For example, two restaurants at Avalon are offering Valentine’s Day to-go specials, Atlanta’s restaurant Marcel is preparing meal kits to-go for the entire week leading up to Valentine’s Day, and local food delivery service Garnish & Gather is partnering with St. Cecilia for homemade Valentine’s Day meal kits. Want to impress your Valentine with a treat from another city? Online retailer Goldbelly ships gourmet Valentine’s Day food & gifts from all over the nation.  

Skyline Park: Vintage amusement park rides and games, mini golf, drinks, and food – Ponce City Market’s Skyline Park is the perfect setting for a fun and unique outdoor date.

Romantic Patio: Enjoy a romantic dinner for two on a weather-friendly patio. Most of Metro Atlanta’s have altered their outdoor seating spaces to safely accommodate winter dining, but a list of some of the best local patios can be found here.  

Ice Skating: With a heated tent and rink-side dining, the Rink at Park Tavern is a fun option for a Valentine’s Day outing.

Family Scavenger Hunt: Looking for a weekend event that the whole family can enjoy? Both the Atlanta Botanical Garden and the Chattahoochee Nature Center are offering kid-themed winter scavenger hunts now through February 28th.
