Book your cruise in advance; there are special dinner cruises at the Marina Del Ray Harbor and the Long Beach for Valentine's Day 2013.

Make Merry in the Museum
Who'll go to a museum to celebrate Valentine's Day? The answer: Anyone who wants to have a memorable evening.

Say It with Flowers
Lots of them! At the Huntington Botanical Gardens; propose your love at the lovely Japanese garden, take pictures with lush lilies and cute camelias or just sigh at the beauty of the Shakespeare Garden. The Grifith Park is another place where you can spend quality time (without spending too much money) with your Valentine.
Walk, Talk and Gawk
Walking may not on the top of the list of Valentine's Day activities; but if you are the sporty kind, hiking with your partner in LA can be a terrific experience. Take the six-and-a-half mile hike to the Hollywood sign, one of the icons of LA. Enjoy the spectacular views from the top and come back with splendid photos and cherished memories.
Of Course, The Romantic Dinner
No Valentine's Day can be complete without a cosy dinner with lovely food and desserts. In LA, there are restaurants for every cuisine and every budget. If you want to splurge on a memorable dinner, book your table at Ilcielo, Picca, Ado, or, as the occasion calls, Valentino. If you are looking for something different, the Anqi by Crustacean and Saddle Peak Lodge will fit the bill.
Love in the city of angels is manifest in every nook and corner. Just book your flights to LA for Valentine's Day 2013 and celebrate your love.
