Explore Art Museums
Lyman Allyn Art Museum
Located in New London, CT this museum offers an impressive collection of art both permanent and temporary ranging from American Perspectives of the 18th, 19th, & 20th Century to Modern and Contemporary works of today. Be sure to take a romantic stroll through the 12 acres of grounds and explore the sculpture trail as well.
Florence Griswold Museum
Situated on the picturesque Lieutenant River in Lyme, CT the Florence Griswold Museum is titled as home of American Impressionism. Explore the vast collection in the gallery or step back in time and tour the Florence Griswold House.
Mystic Museum of Art
The collection of art at this museum is worthy enough to make the list, but the real treat is the special occasion they're hosting for Valentine's Day. This year The Mystic Museum of Art has a special "Artini Hour" titled Valentine's From the Heart. Couples enjoy Passion Fruit Martini's while creating custom greeting cards fit for the occasion.
Spend the day Underwater
If you and your significant other both love animals, then a trip to the Mystic Aquarium is the perfect activity for you both! Located right off exit 90 from I-95, you'll be able to visit an array of sea life such as Beluga Wales, African Penguins, Seals, Sea Lions, Sharks, Rays, and so much more!
Watch Your Favorite Team
In Southeastern CT we have many professional sports teams all within a day's trip. Whether you or your sweetheart's team is in Boston, New York, or even within state there's many options to take advantage of!
Ice Skating at Daton Arena
Ice skating is a great way to break the ice (pun intended) on a first date or enjoy a special evening with your special someone. Connecticut College offers open skate hours to the public.
Grab some hot chocolate afterward to warm up, or head over to a nearby bar or restaurant to continue Valentine’s Day festivities.
