With endless adventure in our backyard and plenty of intimate hideaways in town, Casper is the perfect place for a Valentine's Day getaway or staycation. Whether you're dreaming of answering the call of the wild alone together or you fancy a night full of romance, we've pulled together our top tips for how to spend this Valentine's Day. 

Adventurous Activities

Bundle up, unpack your gear (or rent some here) and enjoy a winter day with beautiful views. Head to Casper Mountain's Nordic trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or fat biking. For extra romance, try cross-country night skiing at the Casper Mountain Trails Center or night skiing on Friday or Saturday evenings at Hogadon Basin Ski Area. The truth is memories made under a Wyoming night sky full of stars is hard to beat! 

Snowshoeing

Get Inspired Together 

If you’re looking for an activity with a little less snow, head indoors to one of Casper's amazing museums or spas. Peruse the current exhibits at the Nicolaysen Art Museum and ART 321, or try something new and become renewed at Balanced Healing Salt & Sauna's Valentine's Day Date Night (complete with a private, hour-long salt therapy and infrared sauna session, massage tutorials, champagne and more).
