Romantic Spots and Activities in Lynnwood
Q Sauna and Spa
You can never go wrong pampering your partner. Take a couples’ trip to Q Sauna and Spa in Lynnwood and enjoy a day of luxurious treatments and services. Relax and unwind together with massages that melt stress away, refreshing facials, invigorating body scrubs and wraps. The included hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas will help the outside world melt away and focus on what’s important: each other.
Rain, wind and snow got you down? You’ll have zero weather worries when you come to Back9 Parlor. Sporty couples will love this virtual sports lounge and restaurant. With six sports simulators, you can get up to some healthy competition in golf, football, soccer, baseball, and more, including zombie dodgeball! Practice your swing, your throw, your pitch, your kick—and maybe show your mate how it’s done.
Culture vultures can get lost together in the stacks of vintage and new vinyl, CDs and DVDs. The Lynnwood outpost of local institution Silver Platters (they’ve been open since 1985!) has something for everyone. Share your favorite artists, albums, movies, and songs with your partner as you wander the racks. You’re guaranteed to find a surprise or two along the way.
Entangled Escape Room
Get locked in a room with only 60 minutes to figure out how to escape. If puzzle and problem solving lights up you and your boo, you’ll love every second you spend at the Entangled Escape Room. With three themed rooms (and a fourth opening soon), you can challenge your brains work together to solve intricate riddles, uncover hidden clues, and unlock your path to freedom.
Catch a Movie
If you’re more interested in the traditional dinner-and-a-movie type of romance, you’ve got multiple options in Lynnwood. Get your hair blown back at an IMAX screening of the latest blockbuster at the AMC Alderwood Mall 16, or enjoy your movie in the comfort of reclining leather seats at the Regal Alderwood.
Lace Up Your Skates
Bright lights and the cold, hard surface of the rink at Lynnwood Ice Center might not scream “romantic hot spot” to everyone, but once you lace up your skates, your opinion may change. Gliding around the ice hand-in-hand with your partner (or inch along the boards, it’s OK!) and you may find that trying something new and novel increases your feelings of excitement and romance. Don’t believe us? Multiple studies have found this to be true. And if ice really isn’t your thing, hit up the roller rink at Lynnwood Bowl & Skate and still get similar effects.
Get some fresh air
Make the most out of a dry day and take a walk or a hike together on trails and parks right in Lynnwood. Check out the tranquil beauty of Scriber Lake Park and take a quiet moment to yourselves right at the center of town. Or visit Lunds Gulch Meadowdale Beach Park for a 2.5-mile trek that will lead you through a ravine filled with wildflowers, ferns, and creeks. Make your way to the beach, where you’ll enjoy panoramic views of Brown’s Bay, Puget Sound, islands, and the Olympic Mountains.
Love at First Bite: Whet Your Appetite for Romance
After an activity or two, you’ll probably have worked up an appetite. Check out Lynnwood’s most romantic spots for couples to grab a bite.
Pier 88 Boiling Seafood & Bar
Perhaps because the Greek goddess Aphrodite was born of the sea, seafood is frequently considered an aphrodisiac. Add that to the spice of Louisiana-style Cajun seasonings (the capsaicin found in chili peppers have been known to boost libido), and Pier 88 Boiling Seafood & Bar‘s low country boil, fresh-caught seafood, and specialty cocktails could be your pathway to romance.
Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse
Try an exciting twist on the traditional steakhouse dinner as your big night out. Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse offers an upscale dining experience with delicious cocktails, sides, salads, and continuous tableside service. The attentive staff will bring out different cuts of meat, all seasoned with traditional Brazilian spices, and carve them directly onto your plate.
Fun and festive atmospheres can also ignite romance, so don’t overlook Todo Mexico as a potential romantic spot for you and your main squeeze. Enjoy an exciting and authentic Mexican experience surrounded by traditional décor and music as you savor your favorite Mexican classics. Don’t forget to give some extra spice a try!
The sleek, upscale environment of Wild Wasabi Japanese Cuisine is a great option for seafood enthusiasts looking for attentive service and sophisticated atmosphere. Enjoy the high-quality ingredients in the fresh sushi rolls, sashimi, and traditional Japanese entrees including teriyaki, tempura, and udon noodles.
Lumi Dessert Cafe
Cap off a day of romance with a sweet treat! Chocolate and many fruits are considered romantic foods by many, and if your special someone has a sweet tooth, they’ll love a trip to LUMI Dessert.
