With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there is no better time to start planning your special night out than now. If you are looking for something fun to do, here’s a look at five haute spots to make your date unforgettable.
1 Boston Harbor Hotel
The Boston Wine Festival is still in full swing at the Boston Harbor Hotel and so are the festivities. Celebrate Valentine’s Day a day early on Saturday, February 13, with a dinner dance brought to you by the wine festival’s founder, Daniel Bruce of Meritage. The evening includes dinner, dancing, live music and wines from Moet and Chandon, all held in the beautiful Wharf Room. After dinner, head outside to the hotel’s outdoor Rotunda Rink for some fun ice skating.

2 Spirit of Boston
If you love to be near the water, celebrate the special day aboard the Spirit of Boston all weekend long. The cruise, which boards behind the Boston Harbor Hotel, is offering Valentine’s cruises on February 13 and 14. Onboard you will enjoy a buffet dinner cruise from 7 to 10 p.m. both nights along with live entertainment and dancing. You can also upgrade your package to include a half dozen roses and bottle of champagne.

3 STRIP by Strega
There is no better day to pop the big question than Valentine’s Day. If you are planning to do just that, STRIP by Strega is here to help by offering an “Ultimate Proposal” dessert. The $75,000 specialty includes a five carat diamond solitaire engagement ring by Elite Time & Jewelers of Boston. The gorgeous ring’s platinum band is nestled into a piece of delicious vanilla sponge cake that is placed in the center of the homemade chocolate orb with edible gold leafing for a spectacular presentation. (The ring must be pre-ordered in advance of Valentine’s Day).

For a romantic weekend escape, head to the Big Apple to celebrate Valentine’s Day in sweet style. To get you there, LimoLiner will take the stress out of getting you from Back Bay or Framingham to New York City with its first class ride. Relax in a leather seat with extended leg room and onboard Wi-Fi and enjoy heart shaped treats and chocolates, romantic comedies, complimentary wine and a snack from Cape Cod’s Pain D’Avignon when you return on Sunday, February 14.
