Do you want to go out to celebrate Valentine’s Day…but not do another “dinner and a movie” combo? Take a look at our ideas for outings that you might not have tried before. Hopefully, you will find an idea that appeals to you and your date- or “dates” if you have to bring the kids along!

I’ve always wanted to go to a dueling piano show! This is on my list of things I want to do this year.
Who doesn’t love a good magic show?
I’ve never personally done one of these. I don’t like the thought of being trapped in a locked room, call me crazy… But some people seem to really like the thrill of figuring out the clues! There are so many different escape rooms, you can find quite a lot of different themes:
- Escape Room LA- The Detective–A Noir Escape Adventure
- Escape Room LA- The Cavern
- Insane Asylum at PanIQ Escape Room
- Escape Room LA- Unlock The Pyramid Puzzle
- Escape Room LA- The Alchemist
- Escape Room LA- The Theatre–A Haunted Escape Adventure
- The Virus Escape Room
I have always wanted to head out to a dinner show. I have never been to one but think they sound like a lot of fun! I like the combination of dinner and entertainment in one.
- The Dinner Detective
- Teatro Martini Dinner Cabaret
- Flamenco and Spanish Cuisine
- Jammin’ Reggae Dinner Cruise
One of my favorite things to do- especially on a date- is to go to a theatre production. If you’ve never been, here are a few ideas…
- Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella at The Ahmanson Theatre
- Ragtime The Musical at Pasadena Playhouse
I also LOVE going to concerts. This concert would be especially fun for people that were in junior high/high school in the 90’s 😉
Assuming that everyone involved likes going to sport events…this would be a great gift! Go Bruins!
Kid-Friendly Valentine Date Ideas
Here are some completely random and unrelated outing ideas. The great thing is that kid’s would enjoy these outings just as much as the adults. Sometimes you just can’t get a babysitter, but you still want to go out and have some fun. Am I right?
- K-1 Speed Indoor Racing
- Valentine’s Screening of La La Land at The Palace
- OUE Skyspace in Downtown LA
- Aquarium of the Pacific
- Whale Watching Cruise
- LA Arboretum Digital Art
I hope that this list has provided you with some good ideas for an outing in honor of Valentine’s Day. At the end of the day, it really is just about spending time with the one’s you love!
