Ideas To Celebrate Valentines Day In Orange County

Looking for something to do on Valentine’s Day in Orange County? Here are some great ideas! Whether you’re looking for a romantic date night or something fun to do with the family, we’ve got you covered.

Take a romantic stroll through Huntington Beach or Newport Beach. The beaches are always beautiful, and they’re even more special during Valentine’s Day. If you’re taking the little ones with you, we suggest visiting Aliso Beach down in Laguna. It has a playground in the sand!

Take a heartwarming hike on one of Valentine’s Day trails like Sweetwater Trail in Trabuco Canyon – dogs are welcome too! If you’re looking for a more challenging trek, head to Strawberry Peak in Silverado Canyon. This moderate six-mile loop offers views of Santiago and Modjeska canyons as well as Mount Baldy.

Take a mini cruise, Southern California has several harbors and a vast coastline for special trips out on the water. In Long Beach, check out Harbor Breeze Cruises’ historical tour of the Los Angeles Harbor, a 45-minute narrated cruise that includes the Long Beach skyline, the Queen Mary and wildlife hanging out in the harbor like sea lions or, if you’re lucky, gray whales.

In Newport Beach, you can charter your own Duffy boat for a more intimate cruise, packing wine and cheese or grabbing a meal from a dockside restaurant at Lido Marina Village.

In Dana Point, stop by the harbor’s  “Love Wall” mural for a photo op with your own love before heading out on a cocktail cruise on Saturday or Sunday with Aventura Sailing. Captain Dave’s Dolphin & Whale Watching Safari will host sunset safaris for sweethearts and also offers romantic private charters, or join Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching all weekend for cruises at sunset with a complimentary drink and treats.
