Have a hot date this Valentine’s Day? Whether it’s a new flame, your longtime significant other, or a gathering of a few friends, February 14th is about celebrating with the ones you care for the most, not worrying about where to go or what to do. Whether you’re planning an evening adventure or a getaway to celebrate all weekend long… Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley has what you need to feel the L.O.V.E. 

Space may be limited so plan today the Big Day is fast approaching!  

“L” is for the lovely restaurants that call Greater Wilmington home… 

If you're looking for a fine dining option with some comforts of home, The House of William and Merry, located minutes outside of Hockessin, Delaware, should be on your radar. Owners Bill Hoffman and Merry Catanuto give “opening their home” a whole new meaning. Nothing less than an amazing meal and a cozy atmosphere will come from this renovated 1922 farmhouse. 

For another fancier night out, look to Krazy Kat’s Restaurant located next to the Inn at Montchanin Village and Spa.  With an overly creative American Cuisine menu and whimsical décor, it’s an experience you won’t want to miss. And if you’re looking to really impress, turn one night into two by simply booking a room at the Inn and maybe even a massage at the spa for the next afternoon.  

“O” is for the Opportunity to experience date night in a new way! 

How about dinner and a show? Candlelight Theatre is dining, and entertainment wrapped up in one.  In February, the musical “Mamma Mia” comes to town bringing a mother and daughters' story to life on stage. Listen to an array of ABBA’s songs while you feast on an all-you-can-eat buffet. Don’t forget a glass of wine to set the mood! 

If plays aren’t your cup of tea, then may we suggest an evening out walking along Wilmington’s Riverfront. Try popping into restaurants like Banks Seafood Kitchen or Timothy’s Riverfront Grill, grab a drink at Iron Hill Brewery or River Rock Kitchen or just take in the beautiful sights of the area and reconnect with your partner.  


“V” is for a mini-Vacation... “Getaway” with us! 

Explore even more of Wilmington & the Brandywine Valley when you stay for the weekend in one of our many hotels! With their accommodating and unique features, you can’t go wrong. 

“E” is for an Exclusive package deal…

If you want to skip out on picking and choosing, and you want an all-inclusive getaway, look to the Hilton Christiana and their Valentine's Weekend Dinner Package. This package includes overnight accommodations, a bottle of champagne (or non-alcoholic cider) AND a four-course meal served via room service!  Don’t forget to make reservations for brunch at their Market Kitchen and Bar - this farm-to-table dining experience will make it a weekend to remember. 

Can’t celebrate Valentine’s weekend? That’s okay! Wilmington and Brandywine Valley attractions and restaurants are perfect for date night throughout the year. Wishing you and yours... Happy Valentine’s Day!
