Valentine's Day is considered to be one of the most romantic days of the year, and Savannah is one of the dreamiest places in the U.S. to celebrate it. Love is in the air 24/7 in our city, which emanates storybook beauty and magical charm. It's why Savannah frequently appears on lists of big names in travel like Travel + Leisure, Trivago and U.S. News and Travel- touting the most romantic spots. And it's why finding sentimental things to do here on Valentine's Day is a real breeze.
To get you started, here are a few of the options for celebrating this day of romance in our city.

Celebrate the day with a nostalgic two-hour Savannah Riverboat dinner cruise. Savor the serene views seen from the majestic Savannah River, as well as a 4-course plated dinner paired with a bottle of bubbly or wine if you prefer. You get a fresh-cut rose bouquet too, and there's live music after dinner so wear your dancing shoes.
Nothing says romance quite like an intimate dinner for two with fine food and wine (or other adult beverage of choice). Many restaurants in town offer specials or other Valentine's Day treats. And although the list of fantastic area restaurants is a lengthy one, a reservation (check out OpenTable.com.) is a must for this particular occasion.

Surprise your sweetheart with a heartwarming musical gift. Order a Live Singing Valentine to have one of Savannah's finest Barbershop Quartets (gussied up in red blazers) deliver a fresh red rose, a card from you, and a serenade of two love songs. You can choose a delivery day from February 12 through February 15.

Snuggle up with your Valentine on a private carriage ride through Savannah's storied streets. It lets you experience the ethereal beauty of our city at a luxurious pace while the cadence "clip clop" of a gentle steed adds to the amorous tenor. Ready to "pop the question" on Cupid's Day? There's a proposal tour that's perfect for that.

If you and your sweetie have already decided to get married on Valentine's Day, you could do so in the idyllic courtyard garden at historic Davenport House. Every February 14 they offer "speed weddings" (one every 15 minutes) for those seeking an intimate ceremony in a blissfully memorable setting. Couples who wish to renew their vows are welcomed too.

Channel your lavey-davey side by taking a slow stroll. Saunter hand-in-hand through Savannah's moss-draped squares. Walk arm-in-arm along Tybee's quiet beach just in time to catch the setting sun. Or meander down River Street in a loose embrace with the Savannah River languidly flowing alongside the old-world cobblestone concourse underfoot.
If you like, go "old school" with sweet treats, which are plentiful in Savannah. Homemade ice cream from Leopold's, gourmet goodies from Byrd's (cookie Company, handmade confections from River Street Sweets or Savannah's Candy Kitchen, decadent delights from Lulu's Chocolate Bar or chocolatier Adam Tourini - to name just a few.
Relax and spend some spa time with your significant other in a cozy "couple's suite" where the two of you are pampered with a tension-melting massage. To top it off, most local spas, with everything offer Valenti with everything from aromatherapy to hand and foot treatments to chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne.

If Cupid's day comes with patio weather, have cocktails with your honey at one of Savannah's rooftop bars. For instance, cozy up next to the fire pit at Rocks on the Roll or settle into any seat at Top Deck to enjoy unparalleled views of the Savannah River. Admire city views at rooftop roosts like Church Hill's Pub (overlooks historic Bay Street) or The Perch (on Forsyth Park's south side).
