Toss the movie tickets, cancel the dinner reservations, and add a bit of variety to your plans for Valentine’s Day or any date night. Naples is full of potential for unique and romantic ways to celebrate that special someone in your life.
Get creative with a night of wine and artistry at Painting with a Twist (239-249-8848). Bring your favorite bottle (or bottles) of wine and some light bites to this quirky Naples venue where you can eat, drink, and playfully paint your own “love-inspired” masterpieces.
Prefer the great outdoors? Head over to the Naples Cyclery (239-566-0600) and rent a tandem bike or two-person, pedal-powered surrey for a casual daytime or sunset pedal to the beach for a picnic. The knowledgeable staff can help tailor your romantic ride by recommending a route that you and your date will enjoy.
Foodies can spice things up with one of Sur La Table’s gourmet cooking classes (239-598-1463). This Valentine’s weekend, you and your sweetheart can enjoy making a romantic Italian dinner for two, or master the sweet art of crafting French macarons. Be sure to sign up soon, as these date-night classes fill up fast.
