It's that time of year again to pull out all the stops for the one you love (even if it's just for yourself!) If you're still looking for Valentine's or Galentine's plans, look no further because we've got you covered.


For the Couples:

1. Take Your Love to the Skies

You, your significant other and a romantic dinner served from over 400 feet in the air with the Dallas skyline as your backdrop – sounds perfect right? From Feb. 11 -14, Reunion Tower is offering special Valentine's deals and packages for couples to enjoy.

If you have little ones in tow, head to the GeO-Deck on Sunday, Feb. 16 for Family Date Night, an evening filled with live entertainment, arts and crafts and more.  

Reunion Tower is a popular spot for Valentine's – so make your reservations and book your tickets soon!

2. Indulge Each Other's Sweet Side

They say the way to one's heart is through the stomach. Explore Dallas' culinary scene with your significant other at one of various chocolate tours offered around the city by Dallas by Chocolate or make your own sweets at the Valentine's French Macaron Class.

3. Have a Heart to Art

What's more romantic than a professional portrait of you and your significant other? Celebrate your love at the Art Dazzle Show – The Most Epic Valentine's Day. On Feb. 14 and 15 at the Artistic Transfer Showroom, watch live painting performances by award-winning local artists, view original paintings and get a featured artist to do a portrait of you and your partner.

4. Learn Something New

Learning something new can be exciting, especially with your significant other. This Valentine's Day head to the Perot Museum's Romancing the Stone adults-only event. From 7-11 p.m., enjoy a romantic Italian dinner by a Dallas top chef, while learning about the science of love and attraction. For a bonus the Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall will be open for you and your significant other to make jewelry and fragrances, participate in a scavenger hunt, pan for gems and even dance a little!


For the Singles:

5. Dance it out with Beyoncé

Calling all the Single Ladies – sweat it out this Feb. 14 at the Beyoncé Ballet and Rosé class at the Arts Mission Oak Cliff. This beginner's dance class teaches you all your favorite classic Beyoncé dance moves (Beychella anyone?). Plus, there's rosé involved.

6. Party with other Singles

Just because you're single doesn't mean you have to stay home this Valentine's Day. Venture to the 3Eleven Valentine's Day Singles Party on Feb. 14 for night full of cocktails, a three-course meal, live music and other singles ready to mingle.

7. Laugh about Love

Got a romance horror story? Trust us, we've all been there. Laugh it out at Crush(ed): A Valentine's Day Variety Show on Feb. 14 and 15. Presented by Stomping Ground Comedy Theatre, the variety show features stand-up, sketch comedy and songs all about love, heartbreak and everything in between.
