Make Everyday Valentine’s Day!

Year round “Date Nights” that will make your sweetheart swoon, romance ideas for every interest and budget in every season…

Howard County Tourism & Promotion thinks the Beatles said it best, that all you need is love, and there’s sure lots to love, love, love about Howard County, Where Maryland Comes Together! So we’ve gathered a list of romantic experiences for every season. Allow us to help you turn every day into Valentine’s Day!

Spend and Evening Wining and Dining

Make a reservation at one of Howard County’s finest romantic restaurants and with the fantastic wine pairings, well, who knows! Tersiguel’s French Country Restaurant in the Ellicott City Historic District, The Elkridge Furnace Inn which was recently identified as one of the Top 100 ‘Most Romantic’ in the US by OpenTable, The King’s Contrivance in Columbia, and the new Gadsby’s Bar American are among the most romantic in the county Superb food, excellent service and an atmosphere that makes you want to hold hands between courses are what you can expect.

With dining comes wining, so take a tour of Linganore Winecellars or enjoy a wine sampling at The Wine Bin. Do you prefer a brew? Take home a growler from Victoria Gastro Pub or the Ale House Columbia or see how it’s made at the Heavy Seas Brewery. Take a cooking class together from one of our renowned chefs and reap the culinary rewards of a job well done.

Looking for a Getaway?

There are plenty of Howard County locales to do just that. The Spa at Turf Valley offers great couple’s get-a-ways like Couple’s Golf & Spa. Romantic stays can also be had at The Wayside Inn Bed and Breakfast, or the Columbia Inn at Peralynna.

Have a Dazzling Evening Out

An evening out to catch a live performance can be quite nice when you are with the one you love. Warm up a cold winter evening with dinner and a show at Toby’s Dinner Theatre. The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, our local and highly acclaimed theatre company, offers performances under a starlit sky all summer long! If classical music is your style, check out the Columbia Orchestra.

For some out of the ordinary romantic experiences in and around Howard County consider the following ideas: Take your honey to Terrapin Adventures where you can climb, swing, and zip your way to a special bond! Stroll the beautiful Azalea Gardens just outside Howard County at Brighton Dam. This is a wonderful spot with 20,000 shrubs on 5 acres overlooking Triadelphia Reservoir and it’s absolutely free. The Shrine of Saint Anthony is a little bit of Italy right here with a 70 year old late Italian Renaissance building on 310 acres of rolling hills and woodlands. A stroll here with that special someone may just have you asking the friars to tie the knot that very same day.

At Tea on the Tiber you can experience the quiet elegance and refinement of a grand English Tea parlor. As you sip your tea you can imagine ladies and gentlemen of a bygone era in their afternoon finery enjoying the comfort and camaraderie of friends. Join them for an afternoon of fine teas and traditional English fare with your special someone.

Are wedding proposal plans in the works? Or, do you want to treat your sweetheart to a unique experience? Top it all and schedule a surprise romantic flight for two at Friendship Hot Air Balloon Company.
