to keep the love alive, no matter the date:

Take a stroll together. We’ve written about which parks are best for small children before, and several from that list can be romantic, as well. Coolidge Park is great for stroll after a romantic dinner at any of the restaurants on the North Shore.

Spend an afternoon in the Bluff View Art District. Enjoy coffee at Rembrandt’s, then enjoy the River Gallery Sculpture Garden, the Hunter Art Museum, or the Houston Museum of Decorative Arts. Finish up with a romantic dinner at Tony’s Pasta Shop & Trattoria.

For a more traditional romantic excursion, visit Chattanooga’s wine and cheese bar: Brix Nouveau. You can enjoy wine, cheese, meats, fresh bread, a beautiful outdoor patio, and an all around excellent atmosphere. There is often live music scheduled, too!

If you and your sweetie prefer a more outdoorsy kind of romance, spend a weekend exploring and camping at Raccoon Mountain. There are extensive hiking trails, campgrounds, cabin rentals, events, and, of course, the caverns to explore.

Share a day, an afternoon, or even an hour of luxury at the Chattanoogan Hotel Spa. Even if you aren’t staying at the hotel, you can make reservations to enjoy a wide range of relaxing and rejuvenating spa services.

Whether your relationship is brand new, well established, or you’ve been together for a million years, some time for romance is always a good thing!
