Adding Romance to Your Flagstaff Valentine’s Day
Flagstaff and Pine Canyon offer romance every day of the year, but Valentine’s Day is when it’s fun to take things up a notch. For Pine Canyon residents who want to stay close to home on February 14 – but want something more special than cooking for themselves or ordering out – the answer is easy: Head to the Clubhouse for Happy Hour and Valentine’s Day Dinner, 5pm-8pm. Executive Chef Lapinski and his culinary team always make it a magical evening. Another great option is spending an entire romantic weekend in one of the Pine Canyon Club Cabins – but make sure to contact us for reservations ASAP, because space is limited!
Prefer to venture into town? Here are a few suggestions from our team:
For movie lovers, February 14 happens to be day two of the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival, which has been celebrating a cultural alternative to the mainstream commercial film experience for nearly 20 years. Plus, there’s no venue that’s more old-school romantic than the Orpheum Theater. Click here to buy tickets.
Trip Advisor’s top 3 romantic restaurants in Flagstaff include Brix Restaurant and Josephine’s Modern American Bistro, while Yelp’s top 3 is Tinderbox Kitchen, Nomads Global Lounge, and Josephine’s. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to have a great time – but don’t forget to make reservations, since it’s a popular evening out.
What could be romantic than a night under Flagstaff’s starry skies? Cosmic Questions at Lowell Observatory, from 8-10pm on Friday nights, features a Lowell educator for an informal discussion under the stars and live viewings of the universe through one of their telescopes (weather permitting).
If you’re lovers of outdoor adventures, S’more Skiing & Snowshoeing at the Arizona Nordic Village will be just the ticket. Put on your headlamp, and from 4–7 pm, you can ski or snowshoe to your heart’s content – then relax in front of the bonfire with s’mores, or drop in for the movie in Discovery Yurt. At just $5 for trail passes and ski and snowshoe rentals, it’s a sweetheart deal, too.
