As Valentine’s Day rapidly approaches, men and women all over the world are entering the first stages of panic. You still have some time to make plans, but what if you have no idea what kind of gift or experience will show your valentine how much they mean to you? It can be difficult, but this year will be different! This year you have made plans for a long Valentine’s weekend in romantic Steamboat Springs; following this guide to romantic Steamboat Springs activities will ensure that your sweetheart knows exactly how you feel!

Not Every Experience Has to Be a Grand One

The grand gesture has long been a romance writer’s favorite, but realistically, it’s the small moments that often make the largest impact. A single flower placed in a bud vase on a tray piled high with her favorite donuts as you serve your sweet breakfast in bed may be remembered for years to come. Powder Day Donuts on Lincoln Avenue offers the best coffee and sweetest donuts in town; the Peanut Buttah is tied with the Maple Bacon for first place in the favored donut competition!

Ice Skating Hand in Hand

The most romantic winter movies almost always include an ice skating scene where the hero and heroine skate hand in hand; it’s sometimes funny when the leading man falls flat on his face, sometimes sappy when they do a twirl that ends in a kiss, but always romantic for the folks in the audience. If you want your own romantic moments on ice, a visit to the Howelsen Ice Complex is the only way to do so! After you do your turn on the ice, mittened hands clasping mittened hands, a stop at Big Iron Coffee Company on Lincoln Avenue will help melt any lingering chill. If you want to stick with the Hollywood script, sharing a cup of their creamy hot cocoa does the trick!

The Best Way to His Heart

Ok, ladies, men have gotten a bad deal when it comes to romance on Valentine’s Day, and if you want to show how much he means to you, the best way to his heart is still through his stomach—with a thick and juicy steak from E3 Chophouse on Yampa Street, to be exact! Offering his favorite cuts of meat delivered from a farm in Kansas, the menu is guaranteed to bring heart emojis to the eyes of the man of your dreams!
