5. Pittsburgh Glass Center: Looking for a hot date with your Valentine? Take a glassblowing class in the city! You and your partner can work together to make a beautiful creation, then enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

6. Narcisi Winery: Just north of Pittsburgh in Gibsonia, you can find a great date spot that is even pet- and family-friendly! Tour the winery and enjoy a private tasting, then stay for lunch or bring your own! Not only are picnics welcome, but so are your four-legged family members.

7. Carnegie Museum of Natural History: After dark, of course! Discover something new about your Valentine during this historic hot spot’s after-hours party. With hands-on activities, live music, drinks and more, who could say “no” to spending the evening at a pre-historic party?!

9. LumberjAxes: Are you and your love more of the active—or even aggressive—types? Check out Pittsburgh’s first axe-throwing venue, LumberjAxes, in the city’s Millvale neighborhood. Axe throwing? Yes, it’s safe—and so satisfying!

10. North Park: If you and your sweetheart are itching for some outdoor activities, head over to North Park. On Valentine’s Day, there will be a special ice-skating session. Once winter’s cold melts away, you can enjoy more outdoor fun, including everything from golfing to fishing!
