One of the most celebrated February holidays is quickly approaching. We’re talking about Valentine’s Day, also referred to as the love day. For those of us who love to celebrate love, Savannah is the perfect destination location for switching things up on Valentine’s Day. 

Here are some unique ways South Key recommends spending time with your special someone. 

1 – Valentine’s Day Dinner Cruise

For those couples who want to see the city from a unique angle and enjoy a nice meal together…

Spend an unforgettable evening on the Savannah River during an adult-only two-hour cruise with a four-course dinner, live entertainment, drinks, and dancing. 

If the dinner plan won’t work, but you still want to cruise, there is also a brunch Valentine’s Day cruise.

3 – Have a romantic picnic at Forsyth Park

For those couples who want to spend time alone doing something more low-key…

An awesome low-key Valentine’s Day option is to set up a romantic picnic at Forsyth Park. Grab some takeout from your favorite restaurant downtown and pick a romantic spot within the park. Bring some wine and a nice dessert, and you are all set for an intimate romantic meal.

This is an option that can be done for lunch or dinner! 

4 – Go out for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner

For those couples who want a traditional way to spend Valentine’s Day…

One of the most popular options for Valentine’s Day in Savannah is going out to dinner at one of our delicious restaurants. 

Here are a few romantic options we recommend:

  • a.Lure – Consider this fancier restaurant if you are renting one of our vacation rentals in the heart of the downtown scene. From steaks to fresh scallop dishes, there will be choices to please even the pickiest eater.
  • Garibaldi – Features a wide variety of delicious dishes like crispy duck, lobster pasta, and veal parmigiana. 
  • The Olde Pink House – Enjoy classic Southern dishes in a mansion built in 1771. And if you’re looking for a cozier spot to lounge in front of the fireplace, opt for the Tavern on the lower level. 
  • Vic’s on the River – Enjoy traditional dishes like shrimp and grits, jumbo lump crab cakes, and fried chicken with a River Street view.
  • Elizabeth’s on 37th – One of the best experiences for romance. The Victorian mansion on 37th street converted into a fine dining restaurant offers a fresh seasonal menu and exceptional wine pairings to satisfy your date. Their award-winning service and wine selections for attentive pairings are the embodiment of old Southern charm. Check out their menu here

For any of these restaurants, we highly recommend getting reservations days in advance as they will likely be booked up for this special occasion.  And if that is the case, no worries! Check out our Concierge’s Food & Bars suggestions to reserve the perfect spot for your Valentine’s Day.

5 – Get your love’s heart racing with a 5-10K

For those couples who want to do something athletic together…

While this option might not be applicable to most couples, if you are a runner, here is a sporty way to celebrate the love month. Let your heart race together through exercise or outdoor activities at the Love Chocolate Half & 10K, a great race to run through scenic Savannah. The race takes place on February 11th with a somewhat residential course full of lake views, smooth roads, and sidewalks.
