Valentine's Day in Phoenix, Arizona, is the perfect time to bring the heat to date night. The temperature is in the 70s and pool chairs are filling up, but that Southwest sun can't work alone! These romantic date night spots are sure to wow that special someone and make this Valentine's Day the hottest one yet.
1. Watch the sun set from the South Mountain skyline
A Phoenix sunset is the best wingman you can ask for. Let the sky do the work, sit back, and enjoy!
2. Get in the spirit with the Biltmore's Happy Hour History Tour
Drinking in the name of education sounds like a fantastic Valentine's Day. Get to know your date as you get to know that bottle of Prosecco.
3. Sweat it out on Camelback Mountain
If you really want to see what your date is made of, sweating it out on Camelback is the perfect place to start. You'll either be broken up or incredibly bonded when you get to the bottom...a successful Valentine's Day if I've ever seen one!
4. Indulge in bread boards at Postino Wine Cafe
The most traditional equation for romance includes cheese and wine. I don't make the rules, that's just how it is. Choose one of the Valley's many Postino locations, ask your server for a recommendation, and share a bruschetta board (or two).
