February 7, 2018

Planning on spending Valentine’s Day in Columbus? February 14 may be fast approaching, but there are plenty of fun and romantic Valentine’s Day activities for couples looking to celebrate the season of love!
From ballroom dancing to ice skating, we put together five ideas of things for couples to do on and around Valentine’s Day in Columbus.
And while you’re checking out our list, be sure to enter not one, not two, but three Arena District Valentine’s Day giveaways below!

  1. Ice Skating at Winter Park [GIVEAWAY]

Few activities are more romantic than ice skating in Columbus – just picture you and your partner, bundled up in your warmest clothes, hand in hand, gliding down a rink of freshly Zamboni’d ice. That could very well be the scene when you spend Valentine’s Day at the Columbus Blue Jackets Winter Park presented by Worthington Industries– an NHL-sized rink located across the street from Nationwide Arena.
Downtown Columbus’ Winter Park is open for public skating, hockey and other community events for just 24 days a year (February 2-25) – making it all the more special when you take your significant other. And with a Tim Hortons nearby, couples can warm up with a delicious coffee or hot chocolate after skating.
To help make a lucky Columbus couples’ Valentine’s Day, we’re giving away a Valentine’s Day prize pack which includes (2) FREE entry tickets to Winter Park, along with a $5 gift card to Tim Hortons. Check Facebook for Valentine’s Day giveaways
