Flowers, chocolates and odes of love are the 3 pillars upon which the present day concept of Valentine’s Day rests. However, as far as the matter of dating on the 14th of February is concerned, things have taken a turn from the usual romantic candle lit dinners to something more pro health and fun without compromising on the romance front. Here are 5 such romantic activity dates that you can try for a newer experience of Valentine’s Day date…
Dance through the night – Be it jazz, waltz, tango or the classic ballroom, dancing your way through the 14th and into the 15th is one of the best romantic activities you can consider this Valentine’s Day. While you will manage to break a sweat and lose some calories, you will also be able to hold your date closer to you than you may have thought in your wildest dreams. A treat indeed!
Take a romantic hike – There is nothing more romantic in the world than nature in its virgin beauty. Hiking through meandering rocky paths etched along the hills and mountainous slopes while witnessing the beauty of lush green forests and wild flowers can be a treat to the ever hungry eyes. Hand in hand with your loved one, you can cherish this untamed beauty while losing a few good calories and shaping up your lower body at the same time.

If you have ever thought of proposing this Valentine’s Day, this could make a memorable option for you.
