Refined Dining In Heber Valley
A Romantic Getaway in Heber Valley
Fall in love all over again in Heber Valley, Utah. Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone and make it memorable with some of the below tips and suggestions.
Keep It Simple
But show him or her that you love and care about them. A small token of love in the form of local chocolates or fresh flowers goes a long way. This tried-and-true approach really does work. It’s a simple and affordable way to show your affection. Or branch out and do something a little less conventional but still simple to show your love. Local businesses throughout Heber Valley are stocking up to provide you with exceptional and tasty products this Valentine’s Day. Here are a few recommendations:
Twisted Sugar: gourmet specialty cookies say a lot and offer a sweet treat for your sweetheart. The variety of cookies is really impressive at this locally-owned cookie shop.
Suss Cookies: this beloved cookie business has cookies and macarons made onsite and ready to go. Order online for a sugary fun delivery to your loved one in the area or even out of state.
Ritual Chocolate: the bean-to-bar, no nonsense chocolate bar selections at this local chocolatier and café tells your special someone that you have great taste – in both chocolate and in your relationships. Try the limited-edition Raspberry Blush bar that debuted for this Valentine’s Day. Or, better yet, book a chocolate tasting experience at the Ritual Chocolate Café.
Quench It: stop in or drive through for a flavorful soda concoction. This local's favorite is sure to have something on the expansive menu that you'll both enjoy.
House Made Gelato: choose from a variety of flavors at Spin Café and taste the rich flavors of this specialty dessert treat.
Milkshakes to Go: a visit to either Granny's Drive In or Dairy Keen usually includes one of their amazing ice cream shakes. Pick one up for your loved one and drop it off to them at work or on your way home. Valentine's Day is a time to indulge a little (or a lot!)
Step It Up A Notch
Wanting to do something a bit more extravagant for your significant other? Dinner is always a safe bet. Reservations do fill quickly at the great local restaurants, so book early. But don’t fret if your top dining pick is booked. Consider any of the other 40+ local eateries, or do a Valentine’s day breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Here are some great ideas to make dining out a bit more special:
Alpenglobes at Café Galleria: these dining globes are great for any time of day and any meal period. The globes are already decked out with pillows, blankets, and hanging floral décor, so the romantic setting is provided.
Nordic Yurt Dinner: snowshoe less than a mile to the Nordic Yurt for a four-course dinner unlike anywhere else in the state. The pre-fixe menu is prepared to perfection by the local OG Café team and onsite guides and servers ensure your every need is met. Roast s’mores around the fire and gaze up at the starlit night sky. This dining experience is the ultimate romantic dinner date.
Order in and light some candles: it sounds cheesy, but the effort will not go unnoticed. Pick up tacos or burgers or pasta – whatever you both love – turn the phones to silent, ignore that chore list and pile of laundry for one night, and enjoy an evening together in the comfort of your own home. Have kids? Arrange for a sitter or a neighbor play date for a couple of hours.
Go All Out
Book a night’s stay at one of the select luxury lodges, hotels, or B&Bs in town. For an added bonus, plan a special welcome gift to greet your loved one upon checking in. This can easily be done by talking with the front desk staff or property manager to arrange ahead of time. Some ideas for special gifts:
Chocolates or favorite candy already in the room or delivered at time of check in
Flowers or rose petals with a bottle of bubbles to welcome you to your room (pictured here is a room at the Heber Senator B&B)
Room service is an indulgent treat, especially when paired with a favorite movie or streaming series that you both love
Spa treatment for two is a great way to unwind and share a relaxing experience together
Day Dates Are Back!
Spend the day together and plan something special for just the two of you. Take advantage of this amazing winter season and try one of the below activities.
Snowmobile Excursion: book with any of the local outfitters or guides or, if you’re comfortable on the machines and terrain, rent the equipment and go out on your own. Pack a snack bag with his or her favorites and a thermos of hot chocolate then plan for a mid-morning or lunch stop on the trails. If going with a guide, make arrangements in advance for a special moment in the backcountry. The local guides love making each excursion special.
Wintry Horseback Ride: there’s something truly magical about taking a quiet horseback ride through the snow-covered trails. Get with a local outfitter or guide to arrange a fun-loving ride on horseback.
Swim in the Geothermal Crater: A soak in the therapeutic waters can make for a unique and relaxing experience together. If you’re staying the night at Homestead Resort, this is an easy add-on activity.
Ice Skating: take a spin around Utah’s largest outdoor ice skating rink. This scenic ice rink has easy access from Midway Main Street and offers some gourmet hot chocolate and cider drinks, along with an indulgent food menu all onsite. It’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors together.
Snow Tubing: a little less intimate, but a whole lot of fun! Book a 2-hour day time or night time slot, bundle up, and glide down the snow-packed lanes. This is a great group date activity too.
Play A Game Or Two: bowling at Holiday Lanes isn’t necessarily a romantic evening, but it is a fun way to spend some time together. The onsite café offers a variety of food, beverage, and snack options. Join some friends or keep it to just the two of you.
Paint Night: unleash your inner artist and plan a fun paint night at the local art studio. These classes are open to the community or private sessions are also available. It’s a great way to reconnect and spend quality time together.
Above & Beyond
For those wishing to do something a bit over the top, we’ve got some thoughts on that too.
Hot Air Balloon Ride: soar above the stunning winter wonderland of Heber Valley in a hot air balloon. Pack a bottle of something special and toast at high altitude. The experience will make memories that last a lifetime.
Private Flight: book a private scenic flight from Heber Valley Airport and take your loved one on a tour from the air. These special flights give you a bird’s eye view of the valley floor below and create special memories and moments for the two of you.
Sleigh Ride: plan a private horse drawn sleigh ride and snuggle under a blanket while gliding through the snowy hillside. Pack hot chocolate and bring a cozy blanket for a special touch. This experience is very romantic and adds a perfect start or cap to the evening.
Try an Art Class: a variety classes are offered at the beautiful Sundance Mountain Resort all year long. Everything from candle making to pottery, or jewelry making, soap making, and printmaking. Stay and dine onsite after the art session. This posh resort is a stunning setting for a couple to spend time together.
Now it’s your turn. Get a plan, make a reservation, and spend this Valentine’s Day celebrating the love in your life.
