With our swaying palm trees, intoxicating salty breezes, sexy nightlife and date-night-worthy restaurants, love is always in the air in Greater Miami & Miami Beach. If you’re looking for a special way to celebrate your special someone this Valentine’s Day, we’ve rounded up some ideas that are certain to impress.

Editor’s Note: Please check with event organizers to confirm that events are happening as planned.

Take the Valentine’s Bay Cruise & then explore Deering Estate

Valentine’s Cruises and Concerts

Listening to music while surrounded by candlelight? You can’t go wrong. Make plans for Candlelight: Valentine’s Day Special on Sunday, February 13 at the Hotel Colonnade Coral Gables. As the venue is bathed in flickering candles, the Biscayne String Quartet will woo guests with a classical concert, showcasing romantic favorites including songs from “Romeo and Juliet.”

If you’re in search of a stunning setting to create the mood, take off on a Valentine’s Bay Cruise that departs from the Deering Estate on Sunday, February 13. Your ticket includes admission to the estate’s lush grounds, as well as a romantic cruise on a 45-foot catamaran, the Pelican Skipper, around beautiful Biscayne Bay. Guests receive a complimentary glass of bubbly, and those views are worthy of a toast.

Bring your chairs and blankets, and pack a picnic filled with all the foods that your sweetie adores. (There’s also an option to buy food when you arrive or pre-order through Joanna’s Marketplace.) Sit under the stars and listen to music from The French Horn Collective and the star of the night, Keba.

Indulge in a staycation

Sultry Staycations

Staycations are always a great gift idea, including this decadent Self Love Spa Package at Hotel AKA Brickell. Book at least two nights at the hotel and they’ll give you a $250 spa credit to indulge in nature-based treatments. This package is available throughout the entire month of February, and guests also receive a complimentary cocktail of the month at Nativo Kitchen + Bar.

Or, escape to the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Miami-Kendall, where they’re offering a package that includes a bottle of sparkling white wine, a box of chocolates and a flower bouquet.

For other staycations that will help the sparks fly, stay and play at one of these romantic Miami hotels.

If a memorable meal is the way to your loved one’s heart, make a reservation at one of Miami Beach’s best restaurants.

In Coral Gables, Tur Kitchen is offering two prix fixe menu options on Monday, February 14, with options ranging from a three-course meal for $79 per person to the Exclusive Valentine’s Day Experience for $140 per person. Spring for the Exclusive Experience, which includes a bottle of Veuve Champagne and a bouquet of roses with the meal.

Family Celebrations

For many couples, it’s just as important to include their kids in Valentine’s celebrations. Spend a day the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Downtown Miami, where kids can run free from floor to floor, falling in love with marine life and science exhibitions. On Sunday, February 13, they can attend a special Mini-Me Science: My Amazing Body event, where they’ll learn about the human body.
