Spend a Mild & Romantic Valentine’s Day in Orlando
Lovers’ Day 2020 is just around the corner and this is one “holiday” you shouldn’t miss if you want to impress the one you love. Orlando is the theme park capital of the world, sure, but it’s not without some romance as well. Here are a few ideas of what you can do with your valentine this V Day 2020 which falls on a Friday this year so you can make it a weekend of love in beautiful Central Florida.
Valentine’s Concert at Leu Gardens
Experience a very special Valentine’s Concert featuring music from Dave Capp Project, Slickwood, and Mud Rooster Blues at beautiful Leu Gardens near downtown Orlando. Bring your own dinner picnic (you can make it in your villa’s fully equipped kitchen or pick it up on your way to the show) with your favorite foods and beverages (alcohol is permitted), and bring seating (chairs or blankets) to thoroughly enjoy this fantastic outdoor concert. Remember, even if it’s warm in the afternoon, temps can drop and get chilly or downright cold so be to bring layers of clothing as well. Friday, February 14 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Hellenic Fun at Taverna Opa
Even if your figure is less than Greek, you and your funny valentine can enjoy a delicious meal at Taverna Opa with restaurant’s 3-course Valentine’s Day menu ($85 per couple) which features delightful favorites from the land and sea.
