While reading the upcoming events in local publications about things to do in SCV on Valentine’s Day, we were disappointed! Many of the ideas shared for Valentine’s Day, actually take place outside of SCV, or were were centered around which restaurant to dine at. We’re here to share, there’s absolutely no reason residents can’t enjoy a good time without leaving SCV. Sure, a helicopter ride over Los Angeles would be cool, but our visitors need something different! What about things to do that are unique, fun, and without having to travel outside our hometown of Santa Clarita. So, here are three insider ideas to enjoy some Valentine’s Day Fun.
Insider Tips – Things to Do in Santa Clarita for Valentine’s Day
- If you haven’t seen downtown Newhall lately, it’s quite enjoyable, especially in the evenings. After dinner, head on to Old Newhall and take a stroll. If you plan ahead, you might even be able to take in a play called I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change at the Repertory East Playhouse
- Go to the Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Canyon Country. Drive behind the building and you’ll find a quiet spot and some benches to sit back and relax and enjoy the view. Take a little picnic basket with food and drinks and you’re all set! After a little relaxation, try a walk at one of the wonderful neighborhood Paseos.
- Our third idea to share for Valentine’s Day is not unique, but it’s an old standby and needs to be shared. How about dinner and a movie. Start your evening dining a local old favorite, Backwoods Inn. This restaurant is located in Canyon Country and has been there since at least the early 70’s, probably longer. It’s an amazing steakhouse and locals continue to rave about it! After that, try taking in a traditional movie at the Edwards Theaters on Soledad Canyon Road.
Reminder: With Valentine’s Day falling on a Friday, be sure to make dinner reservations in advance, or plan on cooking at home.
We hope you enjoy your Valentine’s Day fun and we would love for you to share your ideas of Valentine’s Day fun.
