Unusual ways to spend a romantic evening in Florida

Do you want something different than the same old candlelight dinner? Here are some unique things you can do in Florida during Valentine’s:

Grand 1, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Get a full water view for dining and enjoy your meal aboard the Grand 1 while you cruise on the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake at sunset. Request specific meal options or any other surprises you prefer if you’re planning on popping the question. You can also book this as a separate outing after a romantic meal at Victoria’s & Albert’s or a dinner served directly on the beach.

Underwater Kiss, Miami Seaquarium

If you want something quirky, grab her hand while you walk underwater for 20 minutes along with tropical fish in a 300,000 gallon tropical reef. You don’t need to be scuba certified or even wear snorkeling gear – you get a dive helmet that enables you to breathe naturally. You’ll be swarmed by fish during a part of  a feeding frenzy so it’s a moment to have a smooch in private via your helmets. A helmet kiss is a moment you won’t forget! Make a reservation for the SeaTrek Reef Encounter at the Miami Seaquarium. Cost is $99.

The Love Swing, The Hoxton

Who says love has to cost a fortune. The wicker chair for two hangs in the lounge’s corner, just waiting for two lovebirds. Enjoy a ride on the “love swing” in section 600 while you sip on a $12 cocktail. Try the Saint Valentine, infused with Ketel One Vodka, lime, strawberries, agave, coconut and pineapple purée or the Honey Ryder, a masculine mix of Bulliet bourbon, honey, fresh lemon, blackberries and rosemary.  The walls in this intimate space at the Hoxton are covered with classic black and white photographs of actors and guests.
