Valentine's Day can be a stressful time of the year due to the pressure that comes with making the holiday special for your significant other.
If you're traveling to OKC over the long weekend and looking for things to do that will impress your special someone, you've come to the right place! Stay safe and stay warm with your loved one this Valentine's Day in OKC.
Create a Classic Dinner and Movie Date
If you're looking for a classic dinner and movie experience and don't know where to go, spend your night at one of OKC's premier restaurants. Ludivine in Midtown is offering a dine-in special for Valentine's Day, as well as the Metro Wine & Bar Bistro and The Jones Assembly. If you're looking for the best view in Oklahoma City, fresh fare, contemporary cocktails and a stunning skyline await you at Vast. OKC is home to several cozy steakhouse establishments and a few of the best for the occasion are Red Prime, The Mantel, Broadway 10 and Mahogany Prime Steakhouse.
Your Valentine's Day doesn't end there, though. Head to Rodeo Cinema in Stockyards City and catch a movie of your choice. The quaint cinema originally opened in 1924 to show silent movies and now serves as a modern-day movie theatre, showcasing prime independent films while offering guests an exceptional movie-watching experience.
Plan a Spa Day
If you and your date are over the common Valentine's Day festivities, maybe it's time to mix it up with a spa day. Booking a couples massage is a cinch and OKC's premier spas are open for business, with some limitations. Sweet Mimosa, Three Graces and Udander are ideal options for ultimate relaxation. Spots fill up quickly over Valentine's Day, so be sure to book in advance. Who's going to turn down a romantic day at the spa with their beau?
Stay at a Romantic Hotel
If the spa isn't your cup of tea, enjoy Valentine's Day weekend at one of OKC's most luxurious hotels for a romantic night out. Spice things up on Valentine's Day morning by ordering room service to surprise your loved one or visit the hotel's on-site restaurant for the full experience. 21c Museum Hotel is offering a romance package that will turn up the heat this Valentine's Day. Guests can enjoy deluxe accommodations and an evening filled with libations and contemporary cuisine at Mary Eddy’s Kitchen x Lounge, in addition to champagne and strawberries for the room.

Guests can also take advantage of the on-site restaurant, Café Cuveé, or head to the rooftop bar for one of the best views of the downtown skyline.
Visit a Museum
Valentine's Day doesn't have to be limited to an evening event. After breakfast in bed or dining at one of the city's romantic hotels, there are plenty of activities to do during the day. You can't go wrong with taking your date to a museum where you can explore OKC's culture and diversity. Before your evening out at one of OKC's romantic restaurants, visit the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Factory Obscura or the new Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center. The Myriad Botanical Gardens is offering free admission to the Crystal Bridge Conservatory on Saturday, Feb. 14th for a special date that won't break the bank! For a night on the town, take your date to the debut of Oklahoma City Ballet's "The Firebird" at the Civic Center Music Hall or stream the performance online from your hotel room for just $30. If you really want to outdo yourself, the Oklahoma City Zoo is hosting a special socially-distanced dinner experience at the Sea Lion Stadium from Friday, Feb. 12 through Sunday, Feb. 14. This is a great option if you want to keep a dinner tradition while switching up the regular Valentine’s Day routine.
