Valentine’s Day is a time for romance, spending time with your partner, and reconnecting. Sure, life gets busy, and you lose sight of what is important — but this romantic and love-field weekend is meant to remind people why they are in love, what they love about their partner, and why they want to spend time together.
Instead of being consumed by work, school, or life, you can take a vacation to 30A to spend quality time with your husband or wife, enjoy being outside in the beautiful sunshine, and participate in some local festivities. Plus, with local events and romantic restaurants in 30A, there is no shortage of fun things to do during this unforgettable weekend.
Let’s check out the most romantic spots to grab a bite to eat, have a few cocktails, and dance the night away.
Pescado is one of the most romantic spots for you to have an intimate date night with your partner. If you enjoy fresh seafood, amazing views, and sipping on full-bodied glasses of red or white wine, this place is for you.
We recommend starting with the spicy grilled octopus with chimichurri, fingerling potato, and jicama salad to begin the evening with a nice kick. Or, you can split the cheeseboard with salumi and pickled vegetables if you have expensive taste buds. Other popular starters include pan seared diver scallops, the arugula salad with a honey rosemary vinegarette, or spicy marinated shrimp.
As a main dish, you can’t go wrong with the Chef’s Feast with a whole grilled fish, clams, mussels, shrimp, and vegetable melange or the braised pork shank with creamed cabbage, caramelized apple, bacon, pecans, and pan jus. Doesn’t this just make your mouth water?
Cuvee 30A is an upscale and luxurious dining experience that is perfect for a date night in the 30A. The head chef specially curated a Valentine’s Day menu to make sure every couple enjoys the diverse and local food. Cuvee offers special Valentine’s Day gifts for couples, accepts reservations to ensure you get a great seat overlooking the water, and offers a special holiday menu that can kick off your romantic weekend in the best way possible.
We recommend getting the crab and corn bisque as an appetizer soup. Or, you can split the seafood tower with your loved one, munching on some of the best Alaskan king crab, cocktail shrimp, Maine lobster, and housemade remoulade, that is an ideal way to start the meal. Next, try one of the healthy and crunchy salads to feel good about yourself during this indulgent meal. We recommend the classic caesar salad with eggplant parmesan croutons or the warm salad with roasted peppers, mushrooms, goat cheese, and crumbled bacon bits. Yum!
As a main dish, you can’t go wrong with any selection. We highly recommend trying the Kurobuta pork chop with oven-roasted cheese sauce and corn, the signature black pepper-crusted yellowfin tuna with braised spinach, or the New Zealand venison steak with sweet potatoes and tobacco onions.
To finish off the meal in style, check out the Cuvee 30A dessert menu to satisfy your tastebuds. Split the Cuvee dessert sampler with five mini desserts, indulge in Jerry’s white chocolate banana cream pie, or take a few bites of the Corleone with white and dark chocolate. This is a high-class culinary experience that takes date night to a whole new level!
Gallion’s is famous for its excellence in gourmet cuisine! And what is more romantic than splitting crab cakes with your loved one and sipping on a bottle of fancy wine? We say nothing. His picturesque fine dining establishment is located right in Rosemary Beach, only a few minutes away on foot or by car from the beautiful 30A properties. Head here to enjoy some of the most mouthwatering dishes from the head chef, while you gaze out at the incredible nightlife and the bright white sand beaches of Florida.
Last but not least, The Bay is a down-home and casual seafood restaurant that offers Southern food, high-class fare, and rolls of sushi — but in a laid-back and cool hangout spot that is great for a relaxed Valentine’s Day weekend. Head to this hangout with a beautiful outdoor space that is right on the water to enjoy some live music, spend time with your loved one, and imbibe one — or more — carefully crafted cocktails.
Doesn’t 30A sound like THE ideal spot to spend a romantic weekend with your loved one? We think so too! Head to 30A to have some amazing seafood, spend some quality time with your partner, and really enjoy time in the sunshine. We can’t think of anywhere better to relax on Valentine’s Day weekend in an otherwise-dreary month of February.
