Love is in the air in Oceanside, California, where the annual Oceanside Valentine’s Week will take place from February 2nd-14th. To celebrate the romance and intimacy this holiday encapsulates, numerous businesses and attractions around the city are offering love-themed specials to help you and your loved one create lasting memories.
Oceanside offers a variety of activities for couples desiring a relaxed but sophisticated weekend. For instance, Oceanside Adventures and Beach House Winery have combined efforts to create a luxurious oceanside harbor wine cruise featuring an appetizer platter and three wine tastings. On the other hand, if you prefer to immerse yourself in the art and cultural attractions available at Oceanside, there are several performances occurring at the historic Oceanside Theatre, including Eurydice and Barefoot in the Park. For a more active night out, the Oceanside Museum of Art is inviting you to tango the night away as the museum’s lobby is transformed into a dance floor. After your night of dancing, treat yourselves to a romantic couples massage at the Ocean Village Massage, which is offering several discounts to ensure you and your special someone get the pampering you need.
If you find that you and your loved one would prefer more adventurous and active activities to commemorate your love for one another, then Oceanside still has plenty of options for you. For the more daring couples, GoJump Oceanside is offering a buy one get one half off special for skydiving. While taking the 12,000 foot plunge, you will take in breathtaking views of California’s coastline. But if you prefer to take in the scenic coastal views from a more secure position, Waverider Helicopter Tours is offering specials for a memorable helicopter tour. To burn off some extra calories from all the chocolate indulgence this holiday traditionally involves, you can take a bike ride or participate in a fun run, hosted by Endurance House Openside -- which is free and open to all levels of walkers and runners. Best of all, those who participate in the run will be treated to champagne and chocolate after the run.
If your ideal Valentine’s day involves the beach, then Oceanside has a wealth of options to fill your week with beach-going activities. During this week of romance, Oceanside Boat Rentals is offering a 50% discount on kayaks and in-harbor boat rentals. Whitlock Surf Experience is also providing a Valentine’s day special for a comprehensive two-hour surfing class that will leave you riding some waves. When you are not in the mood to take a dip, but still want to enjoy the beach, Oceanside Parks and Recreation will be showing a classic romance movie, The Notebook, at the pier. Oceanside Parks and Recreation will also host a free concert featuring The Xceptional Tribute to Abba band following the screening of The Notebook.
For the outgoing, social couples, there are events such as the Oceanside Car Cruise, which features vintage cars that promise to transport you back in time. Oceanside will also be hosting the 8th annual Brewbies Festival, which benefits the Keep A Breast Foundation. While you and your loved one enjoy a selection of beers from over forty of the best breweries around, you will also be supporting breast health, so drink away!
Oceanside will also be featuring a variety of delectable dining options. From walking food tours, wine specialties, tasting menus, and heart-shaped pizzas, Oceanside has a culinary scene that is not to be missed.
