Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love, we can all agree on that. But, something we can also agree on is that love isn’t all about romance – it’s also about having fun whether you’re with your lover or without.
If you’re visiting the US, here are some fun places full of adventure, hiking, nature, scenery, culinary delights – and of course, we didn’t leave out the romance part for you to experience with that special person in your life.
LA – Runyon Canyon Sunset Hike
Located in beautiful West Hollywood, this part of LA boasts magnificent scenery and hiking views. Visit the popular Runyon Canyon with either a guided tour with Bikes and Hikes LA or venture out yourselves as the sun rises or sets.

Seattle – Pike Brewing Company
In the heart of Seattle within the Pike Place Market, you’ll find this independent craft brewery – a local favourite.

What is there not to do in New York? It’s arguably one of the best cities in the world for Valentine’s Day activities. Stroll through Central Park, stop by the Museum of Natural History or the Guggenheim, take riverside strolls, visit Broadway shows aplenty, check out the “LOVE” sign at Times Square, try out gourmet meals or cupcake milkshakes. New York is your oyster.

Home to some of the world’s most stunning natural scenery, Colorado is perfect for a romantic and fun trip into nature’s backyard.
