Valentine’s Day may bring a lot of stress to couples, from what flowers to buy to planning a fancy date, the pressure is always on for it to be perfect and filled with romance. If you’re pressed for ideas or want to do something a little more out of the ordinary, we’ve complied a list of ideas to fit the interests of the different types of couples out there.

THE ART LOVERS

El Paso has emerged as an artsy city with murals popping up all over downtown and popular monthly art crawls. If you’re that couple who enjoys the art scene, why don’t you take some time to visit a local museum or paint a masterpiece of your own at I Painted That. http://ipaintedthat.com

THE FOODIES

Don’t think that you have to go all out and spend a fortune on a fancy dinner because there are plenty of options when it comes to dinner or even lunch spots. Salt & Honey is usually only a lunch or breakfast spot, but this year they are featuring a dinner menu on Valentine’s Day. St. Augustine Artisan Pizza and Craft Beer is the new kid on the block. This quaint restaurant specializes in brick oven pizza and craft beer. Because it will be a popular dining day, reservations are highly recommended for both.

THE MOVIEGOERS

Movie dates are always a go-to dates, even on Valentine’s Day. This year, for one night only, think about taking part in a drive-in movie theater.  It’s being hosted by El Paso County and Special Events and it’s absolutely free.

THE COFFEE DRINKERS

Who doesn’t love a good café? Fahrenheit 180 is the newest spot in town and offers tasty desserts along with their simple menu of caffeinated and non-caffeinated drinks.

Eloise also offers a delicious menu with great cocktails. Sometimes it’s nice just to sit and have a deep conversation with your date and these two would make great options for the night.

THE THRILL SEEKERS

Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be a low-key occasion. It’s good to get an adrenaline rush once in a while. Operation Outbreak is a fun alternative to getting the blood pumping. These escape rooms have grown in popularity and are a fun way to establish teamwork in order to win the game. For more information, visit https://escapegameep.com/

SINGLE AND READY TO MINGLE

Don’t worry, if you’re not in a relationship, there’s a spot for you too.

Not everyone cares for Valentine’s Day and some may find themselves single and happy on this day. Others might take this as an opportunity to connect with others who may be feeling the same.

Night spots such as Later, Later and Born TX Raised are hosting Valentine’s Day parties at their bars with drink specials all night.
