    Take that special someone out for a nice dinner at one of the top romantic restaurants in OKC, any other top OKC restaurant or one of your own choosing. Dine in style and have some great food to begin your Valentine's date.

    After the meal, go catch a movie at one of the top OKC movie theaters. For something a bit different with your movie-watching, take a trip to the Noble Theatre at the OKC Museum of Art to catch an independent, foreign or classic film.

    Maybe you and your date would rather take it easy. Maybe you'd like to be pampered and just enjoy the relaxation together.

    One thing people often rave about are spas. Take a Valentine's Day trip to a spa and enjoy a massage. Many metro area spas offer couples specials, but they often fill up quickly.  So make your reservation well in advance.

    Then continue the theme of getting away while never leaving the city with an Oklahoma City hotel for Valentine's Day. You and your sweetheart can have a night away, relax and order room service.
