With Valentine’s Day around the corner, the pressure is on to plan a romantic escape for you and your significant other. But that doesn’t have to mean jetting off to a remote island or a mountain lodge. There are plenty of ways to stoke the romance right here in Nashville. Here are a few ideas to get you in the lovin’ mood.

A Night on the Town

There couldn’t be a better city in the country for catching a show that will rock your world. Treat your date to a night out at one of Nashville’s 150+ venues, whether it’s somewhere iconic like the Ryman Auditorium or Grand Ole Opry, or a local honky tonk along Broadway. And, if you’ve never been to the Country Music Hall of Fame, a leisurely visit, perhaps after an indulgent brunch for two, is a great way to soak up the magic of the city together.

Spa Time

Indulging in a spa treatment is one of those things we tend to save for a special occasion—what better reason for a little pampering than celebrating Valentine’s Day? Three blocks away from the hotel, you’ll find Woodhouse Day Spa, where you and your boo can unwind side by side with a Duet Massage in a private treatment room. Two other great pick-me-ups are the Seaweed Marine Eye Compress Treatment and the Gentlemen’s Hot Towel Facial.

For something a little more playful, head to O.liv’s Body Bar in East Nashville and detox in Tennessee’s only mud lounge. The fun begins in the Mud Room, where you’ll slater one of three organic mud blends over your bodies. Then you’ll hit the Steam Room for 20 minutes, followed by the Clean Room to shower and wash away the mud, leaving your skin baby soft.

Hole Up in Your Hotel Room

A staycation is always a good idea. Checking into a hotel means not having to worry about making the bed and all those other boring chores at home. It also translates into some serious rest and relaxation.

Our It’s a Love Story package at Loews Vanderbilt makes it easy to plan a romantic getaway. The deal starts with a $60 credit for dinner—either at Mason’s or from in-room dining, for the ultimate in privacy. It also includes two glasses of sparkling wine, a complimentary in-room movie, valet parking and a late-checkout. Which means there’s no reason to leave the comfort of your cozy robes in the morning—but if you do, there’s hot coffee from Frothy Monkey and house-made pastries by Chef Lexi Francisco waiting for you downstairs at POD Market.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
