5 Valentine’s Day Date Ideas in Prince George’s County


When you call Prince George’s County home, planning a special Valentine’s Day outing for your loved one or family isn’t a difficult ordeal. Here are five great opportunities to have a memorable, close-to-home Valentine’s Day this year.

Enjoy an Exciting Night Out at the MGM

It’s one of Prince George’s County’s newest gems, and it’s the perfect place to have a night out or an overnight escape.

See a show, hit the gaming floor, or make a reservation for a lavish dinner at the Voltaggio Brothers Steak House. If seafood is more your thing, be sure to check out Fish by José Andrés.

Make a Day of it at National Harbor

There’s so much more to do at National Harbor than just the MGM, too.

Enjoy a romantic dinner at McCormick & Schmick’s or Public House. Then, take a ride with that special someone on the Capital Wheel.

If you’re in the mood for something a little less formal, there are plenty of delicious craft beers to try at Granite City Food & Brewery. Or just hit up the always-popular Bobby McKey’s piano bar and laugh and sing the night away.

The possibilities are endless, but you’ll have a blast, we promise.

Paint & Sip with PG Parks

Reserve a place for you and your loved one for a special Paint & Sip event at Bowie Community Center on Valentine’s Day from 6:30-8pm. Unwind with a fun-filled evening of canvas painting during this interactive, guided class. Tickets are just $25 each for residents and $30 for non-residents.

Dine Out, Right Here at BeechTree

You don’t even have to leave the neighborhood to have a nice, relaxing night away from home. Grab your loved one and head over to Lake Presidential Golf Club for an evening of enjoying delicious food and drinks, plus one of the best views of BeechTree’s you can find.

Do Something with the Whole Family

If you’re looking for something more family oriented, the Gateway Arts Center in Brentwood is hosting a special Valentine’s Day crafting session this Saturday, February 10, from 2-4pm.

Work together with the little ones as they craft beautiful jewelry, key chains and other Valentine’s Day gifts during this fun, free and family-friendly event. Be sure to RSVP on the event’s official Facebook page!

The Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation is also hosting a special screening of Will You Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown? on February 14 from 6:30-8pm at the Beltsville Community Center. Tickets are just $5, and the evening will also feature light refreshments and kid-friendly arts and crafts.
