If you are heading out with that special someone, make sure to include a little extra one-on-one time before you fly out.

Dine: Romantic waterside views await at Anthony’s HomePort Restaurant. Overlooking the Des Moines Marina, Anthony’s offers some of the area’s best-prepared seafood. Time your reservation to coincide with sunset for an extra-special evening. Experience food from around the world at Spice Bridge—and support women of color and immigrants. This food incubator business offers a rotating selection of vendors, who prepare authentic dishes from every corner of the world.

Sip: Get in touch with your inner Viking and experience the unique pleasures of a mead (honey wine) tasting at Oppegaard. After dinner, head to 13 Coins—a Seattle-area institution—where craft cocktails and a full bar come complete with live music every night (except Sunday and Monday).

Play: Indulge in any number of tantalizing treatments at Cedarbrook Spa—a hidden oasis of tranquility just minutes from the airport. Something more entertaining? AMC Theaters offers all the newest releases and special screening shown on 16 big screens, IMAX, and 3-D.

Explore: Romantically speaking, you can’t go wrong with an indulgent tasting and tour at award-winning Seattle Chocolate. Discover what sets their chocolates apart while sampling a wide variety of some of their best bars, followed by a bird’s-eye view of their factory in action.

Shop: Can’t make the tour? Hit up the Seattle Chocolate gift shop, or drop by World Market for treats and treasures from around the globe.

Stay: Cedarbrook Lodge provides the romantic respite you both need with the hidden oasis feeling, onsite farm-to-table restaurant and luxury linens.
