Love is in the air and whether you are the “lover” or the “lovee”, I have some amazing unconventional ideas for the one you are trying to impress or the one that already has your heart but needs to know that you can really shake things up! Keep in mind these are, as I stated, a bit unorthodox but guaranteed to get you to the top of the “perfect for me” list.
1. Ziplining: Plan a day for the two of you or even make it a couple’s adventure. You can’t beat zipping from one stand to the next! Certainly nothing says “I love you” like flying down a mountain hanging from a zipline! Check out Zipline Eco Tour on Catalina Island http://www.visitcatalinaisland.com or Action Zipline Tour at Big Bear Lake http://actionziplinetours.com/
2. Aerial fun: Schedule a class of Aerial Yoga for two. I ask you, what could be better than hanging from the ceiling in a beautiful hammock with the love of your life? Art Flying Aerial http://www.artflyingaerial.com/ for instance is offering a special “Valentine’s Partner Flying Yoga”. You never know you may just fall in love….with aerial yoga I mean and become a high flying regular.
3. Whale watching: Maybe your significant other wouldn’t mind seeing a mammal in beast mode other than you! Sign up for some very cool whale watching and enjoy a gorgeous day on the ocean. Trust me you haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen that incredible eye looking up at you from under the water. Check out Newport Landing for some super fun activities to do at and around the landing. http://www.newportwhales.com/
4. Helicopter tour: Hooray for Hollywood! See the most beautiful sights and romantic sunset from the sky, aboard one of the most incredible modes of transportation. This is a once in a lifetime adventure that will be hard to top. http://www.tours4fun.com
You are all set and on your way to the Valentine celebration that will have your valentine talking about for a long time. Of course everyone else will hate you for making their flowers and chocolates look oh so lame but you will zip, hang, and fly right to the top of cupid’s list and you will have a whale of a time doing it!
