Love is all around us

Love in Lafayette

 

Are you scratching your head for ideas this Valentine’s Day? Does it feel like you’ve done it all? Or maybe you just don’t know where to start. Start here: Lafayette, Colorado (right outside of Boulder, Colorado) is a hidden gem of a town. Think Gilmore Girls’ Star’s Hollow meets a Grateful Dead concert. Lafayette has the charm of a small town with a bit of a liberal edge. And it could be the perfect date if you are looking to make a day of it or just pick one or two activities:

 

  1. Morning Couples’ Massage at Old Towne Therapeutics

 

Old Towne Therapeutics is a healing space like no other and they have been in Lafayette for over 25 years. Old Town Therapeutics is offering an amazing Valentine’s special: couples massage. For only $130 you get two 1 hour sessions with chocolate, sparkling cider, and a special gift included. To book this special session, email Debbie at ottmassage@gmail.com or call at (303) 875-8002. If you do nothing else in Lafayette for your date, massage at Old Towne Therapeutics is a must. Getting a massage with your partner is a unique bonding experience. Not only does it increase the emotional bond, but massage also releases endorphins, making you and your partner both happier and more relaxed by the end. Bonus: If you want more one-on-one yoga attention, Debbie Asmus, the owner of Old Towne Therapeutics, also teaches private yoga sessions!

 

A Waneka Lake Walk

 

Waneka Lake is the hidden gem inside the hidden gem. This beautiful lake reflects the sun often, and has scenic views straight across to the mountains. There is a quiet hidden swamp here, as well as paddleboats, SUPs, and kayaks for rent when in season. A walk around Waneka Lake with your honey is sure to be romantic.

 

Lunch at Eats & Sweets

 

This family-owned business will cure both your sweet tooth and your savory one. The owners and employees are super friendly, the food is fresh and healthy, and the desserts are to die for. They also have a sense of humor: “Straight Outta Lafayette” t-shirts for sale.

 

Afternoon Yoga at Soul Tree

 

In Lafayette, Soul Tree has two locations: South & Simpson studios. They offer yoga at all times of the day. Check their schedule any day and you will find an array of classes from restorative yoga to yoga nidra to monthly kirtan to vinyasa yoga flow and much more! Doing yoga together can reinvigorate your relationship in ways you couldn’t have imagined, bringing the mind, heart, soul, and body together in your relationship and having fun while doing it!

 

Live Music at East Simpson Coffee

 

After your day of adventuring, head just next door from OTT for one of East Simpson Coffee’s many events. Live music is a must and the cafe has a quaint but lively atmosphere. And choose your beverage: enjoy coffee, wine, and other food and drink.

 

Enjoy & Happy Valentine’s Day!
