Since today is Valentine’s Day, we have decided to list a few fun and romantic activities around Tampa Bay! Whether you’re searching for heart-pounding thrills or a candlelight dinner for two, Tampa Bay offers a romantic setting for everyone.

Since it opened in 1956, Bern’s Steakhouse has been considered one of the most romantic places to dine in the area. Bern’s offers custom sized steaks, the world’s largest wine collection (Sommeliers included), outstanding hospitality and unique dining areas (a separate dessert room and a “Cave du Fromage”). Having gained vast amounts of national attention for their first-class dining experience, it is no wonder why Bern’s is Tampa Bay’s choice spot for Valentine’s dates and engagement proposals.

The St. Pete Pier provides a great venue for both day and nighttime romance. Spend the day visiting the Pier’s Florida-style shops or gazing at underwater creatures at the aquarium. You can also sail away on a Dolphin Cruise or rent a boat for a romantic two-person voyage. End your date with dinner at the Columbia Restaurant, known for its breathtaking waterfront views of Tampa Bay.

The Starlight Dining Cruise offers delectable cuisine and live entertainment. Set sail, then dine, drink and dance with your date, all while taking in the beautiful sights of Tampa Bay.

St. Pete Beach is the perfect setting to take a sunset stroll with your significant other. Don’t forget to stop by the Don CeSar Resort for a delicious treat at their old-fashioned ice cream parlor.

If you are in need of a little more excitement, why not take your date horseback riding at Amber Glen Equestrian Center in Pinellas Park. With 25 miles of trails and local beach riding, it is an ideal date spot.

At Old Hyde Park Village in Tampa, you can wander through the shops or visit the CineBistro Movie Theater, which offers much more than peanuts and popcorn. You and your date can indulge a Crème Brule trio or Pan Seared Salmon while sharing a bottle of Champagne.

Don’t forget, the Florida State Fair is in Tampa from February 9th – 20th. Live entertainment, thrilling amusement rides, a petting zoo and mouth-watering concession food makes for an entertaining date night. On Valentine’s Day admission is only $5 (after 5:00pm).

As you can see, Tampa Bay has romantic places for everyone all year. So take advantage of it today or any other romantic day.
