Romance Flourishes in the Spectacular Colorado High Country

Glistening snow-covered mountains, cozy lodges with blazing fireplaces, gourmet-quality dining experiences. What could be a better way to spend time with that special someone, and what better time than Valentine’s Day to take advantage of such romantic surroundings in picturesque Summit County? And there are plenty of idyllic places to stay in Frisco.

February 14th will be here before you know it, so what better time to plan a romantic retreat with your significant other to the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains, indulging in healthy outdoor sports and activities, browsing in unique resorts and shops, taking in popular night spots, and enjoying an abundance of dining options.

Valentine’s Day in Summit County

Visitors to Summit County for Valentine’s Day will have a plethora of amorous adventures at their fingertips. Many of these are unique to the natural beauty and landscape of the area:

Beautiful sunsets over the Rockies are unparalleled in their ability to awaken the spirit of romance. Take in a majestic sunset with your valentine, and then head to the slopes for some night skiing at one of the area’s premier ski resorts, including such locations as Keystone.

Taking in couples skating at one of the area’s ice rinks is a great time to hold hands and snuggle a little closer. Options abound such as the Keystone outdoor rink or the Stephen C. West ice rink at Breckenridge.

Strike out on one of the many local cross-country ski trails, taking in simply amazing scenery while enjoying time together in well-groomed and marked trails that suit every level of athletic ability. If you don’t have your own ski equipment, don’t allow that to stop you – rentals are plentiful and easily arranged. There are several Nordic centers in the immediate area presenting opportunities for couples to take in the gorgeous scenery while enjoying an outdoor adventure at your own pace.

What is more romantic (and less stressful) than a ride in a horse-drawn carriage? Head over to the Breckenridge stables for daily carriage rides that are available even without a reservation.

Want to take that one more romantic step farther? Visit the Frisco Adventure Park for the Two Below Zero horse-drawn sleigh rides. Sip on hot chocolate as you enjoy the scenery with your sweetheart. For a more intimate and private sleigh ride, make an advanced reservation. Dinner rides are also available that include your unforgettable sleigh ride, a 3-course home-cooked meal, and live entertainment.

Valentine’s Day Dating

While many couples visit the resorts and towns of Summit County specifically for the abundance of outdoor sport activities: snowboarding, cross-country and downhill skiing, ice skating, and more, others seek out the many other offerings in the area.

Dining is a favorite activity for celebrating Valentine’s Day, and Summit County has plenty of options for casual dining or the most discriminating tastes. Sample fine wines, champagne, or local craft beers expertly paired with creations prepared by expert chefs. Many restaurants offer special menu items specifically for Valentine’s Day.
