Whether you’re staying in for a relaxing night at home, booking a romantic dinner for two, or partaking in the Galentine’s Day celebrations, there are many great ways to celebrate the season on any budget in Newport. Below are some of our favorite festivities when love is in the air!

$ Hot Chocolate Bar at the Chanler – Did you know the hot chocolate bar is back this year? Take a romantic stroll on the Cliff Walk and stop by the Chanler for a gourmet chocolatey drink! (Alcoholic pairings available for 21+)

$$ Ice skating and hot cocoa – Take advantage of the Gurney’s ice rink while it’s still in season, lace up your skates and grab your date! Enjoy a few laps around the twinkling rink and warm up with a mug of hot cocoa (or a cocktail) from Gurney’s!

$$-$$$ A romantic dinner for two – Don’t sleep on the “cliche” dinner out! While it might seem overdone, it’s a popular choice for a reason, everyone loves it! Living in Newport, the options for upscale and cozy dining are endless. Consider taking a break from your usual spot to try something new. Some of our favorite romantic spots include White Horse Tavern, 22 Bowens, The Vanderbilt and Mama Luisa!

$$$ Helicopter ride – Maybe you have a birthday, anniversary or just feeling like spoiling someone you love. If that’s the case, consider a helicopter tour of Newport and surrounding areas with Birdseye View Tours. Take in the stunning views and create a memory you’ll never forget this Valentine’s Day!

$$$ Couple’s Massage – A few of our favorite places to book massages are Gurney’s Spa, Hotel Viking Spa Fjor and Bodhi Spa. With so many options around town, you can’t go wrong!

Note: This is also a great way to treat yourself if you’re indulging in some alone time this season!
