Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and many people are already thinking ahead to what they would like to do on February 14th. Whether you’re hanging out with your sweetie or your BFF, here are a few ideas for how to spend the holiday in Wichita Falls.

Ganache Cupcake Lounge

2412 Jack St. Unit B  940-766-3000

Ganache will be hosting a special Valentine’s Day four-course wine-pairing meal on the holiday. The event will be exclusive, so call early to make your reservation. The menu hasn’t been set in stone as of yet, but with Ganache you know it’ll be divine. If you’d like to tempt your sweetheart with a treat but can't make it to the dinner, gift certificates are available and make a great gift instead of the same chocolate you see each year.

Visit Ganache’s Web site or keep up with the current menu on their Facebook page.


2301 Midwestern Parkway  940-687-0072

If you’re looking for a tasty filet paired with the perfect wine on Valentine’s Day, Pelican’s is a great place to look. Known for having an excellent menu, you can impress your date with a couple’s special and specialty dessert. Reservations are recommended for the holiday, but if you’re okay with waiting for a short while, you may still be able to get a table without the call-ahead.

Wichita Falls Vineyards & Winery

3399 Peterson Road South  940-855-2093

When a restaurant isn’t cutting it as your ideal Valentine’s date, a tour of the Wichita Falls Vineyards & Winery may be a nice change of pace. They offer tours Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and other times by appointment. You’ll get a chance to tour the winery and partake in a wine sampling, which could be fun for you and a friend or romantic if you’re on a date. Two varieties are offered free of charge with the sampling, though additional samples can be purchased for only $1 or $2. When you’re finished with your tour, take home a bottle or two (or more!) and enjoy spirits made right here in Texoma.

Sometimes it’s nice to take time out and forget the world around you while you enjoy a soothing massage. Spa Bella offers couple’s packages starting at just $35 per person, and on Valentine’s Day they’ll be offering champagne and strawberries as well. Whether you’re there with a friend who needs to relax just as much as you do or the spouse you’ve been with for years, you’ll be pampered with a trip to the spa. Massage packages are by appointment only, so call early to book your time.

Visit the movies!

Carmike Sikes 10 – 238 Sikes Center Mall

Cinemark – 2915 Glenwood Avenue

Going to the movies isn’t a new idea for Valentine’s Day, but it’s always a good time. From the chocolate covered almonds to the butter-slathered popcorn, it’s a great date for you and your honey or an event for you and your friends. If you’re getting romantic, you can hold hands as a monster pops onto the screen or steal a kiss in the dark. Even when a movie isn’t as good as you expected it to be, the movie theater offers an experience that you just don’t get at home, and always makes a good option.
