Valentine’s Day is less than a month away, so it’s time to start making plans for how you’ll spend the day with your sweetheart. If you’re looking for fun Valentine’s Day dates around Oklahoma City and Moore, OK, you’re in the right place.
Valentine’s Day (Or Any Day) Dates in OKC
There are always so many things to do around Oklahoma City, from arts, music, and museums to dining and nightlife. With so many options, it can be hard to narrow down what you actually want to do, but these creative and unique date ideas can save the day.
Sweetheart Skating Date
OK, we can’t say we’re not biased, but is there anything more romantic than skating under a mirror ball and colorful lights to “your song” while holding hands with your significant other? Roller skating is a perfect date because it’s fun, active, and nostalgic… And hey, who doesn’t love an affordable date idea?
Bring your Valentine to Skate Moore and enjoy a few hours of roller skating, and for extra bonus points, buy them a new pair of roller skates from our pro shop! Buying them their own pair of skates in a style and color that fits their personality will be sure to earn you MVP (Most Valentine-able Person) from your boo.
Dinner and an Indie Movie Date
You may be thinking, “Nothing could be less unique than a dinner and a movie date,” and normally, you’d be correct…But not if your date involves dinner at one of OKC’s fantastic local restaurants and a movie at local independent movie theater Rodeo Cinema.
With the right person, even exploring restaurants and things to do in your own city can feel like a new and exciting adventure. Show your Valentine how much you care by planning a day of activities that make home feel like a vacation.
Chocolate Lovers Date
No Valentine’s Day is complete without chocolate. If your significant other has a sweet tooth, you’ll rock their world with a trip to the Normal Chocolate Festival! This annual event is legendary, bringing together 30 local OKC restaurants, bakeries, and confectioners to show off their most delicious and decadent chocolate masterpieces. Your general admission ticket will get you 10 free samples, but you can also indulge with a VIP tasting session that includes 15 samples and a drink—plus a to-go container for all of the chocolate you want to take home for later.
No matter what you choose to do for Valentine’s Day, make sure that you let the people you love know how you feel. Fancy gifts and expensive nights out are fun, but hearing “I love you… And here’s why” will beat any material item you can give them.
