Chocolate Fondue at Geja’s Cafe
For over 50 years, Geja’s Cafe has been one the most romantic restaurants in Chicago, enchanting couples with its candlelit, intimate atmosphere and intoxicating fondue courses. You and your date can enjoy a full meal, or simply indulge in dessert, dipping strawberries, cherries, pound cake, and more into decadent melted chocolate. Reservations recommended.
Ice Skate in Millennium Park
Take the hand of someone you love and skate under the stars at McCormick Tribune Ice Rink. Enjoy a peaceful turn as you glide past the Bean and Michigan Ave, bundled up and cuddled close. Skate rentals are available, and this free activity is sure to warm your special someone’s heart.
Valentine’s Cruise on Lake Michigan
