For your first stop on your Valentine's Day itinerary, you and your partner are going to book dance lessons at Lux Dance Studio. Located right downtown, this is a splendid activity to do with your loved one, becoming closer by refining or developing a skill together! They make dancing not only educational, but also fun and exhilarating. Plus, what could be romantic than sharing a dance with the one you love?

If it's been a while since you danced last, you may feel a bit sore following your lesson. If this is the case (or even if it isn't) go recharge with a couples massage at Sage Healing Collective. You and your partner will get your very own private spa room for a side-by-side massage, and can choose from a Relaxation Massage if you've been feeling a bit stressed recently, or a Therapeutic Massage if your dancing muscles are acting up. This will help you feel at ease, that way, you can be in the best mood for the remainder of your evening.

Now that you're all relaxed from your massage, it's time to grab a bite to eat for dinner. Everybody knows that the most romantic cuisine is Italian, and when it comes to Italian, you can never go wrong with La Za'Za' Trattoria. A staple in St. Charles since 1995, you and your partner will be blown away by their Northern Italian dishes, expertly skilled cocktails, and fine wine and beer. To top it all off, their location is terrific, being just across the way from the Fox River on 1st Street.

Even though dinner has come to a close, it's not quite time to call it a night just yet. Just a stone's throw away from La Za'Za' Trattoria is Kilwins, and they will help you end your evening in the sweetest way possible! They have an assortment of chocolates and candies to choose from, and trust us, you'll begin to salivate the second you get a whiff of the smells when you walk through the door. They are famous for their Mackinac Island Fudge, but with an evening like tonight, you can't go wrong with one of their Valentine's-themed sweets, as well.

As the evening finally begins to wind down, you're going to want a comfy accommodation with an exquisite atmosphere to lay your head at. The historic Hotel Baker is nestled right by beautiful Fox River, and with state-of-the-art amenities combined with their elegant style, we're sure that you'd agree this is a stunning place to stay. If you decide to stay the following night, you can even stop by the Rox City Grill located in the hotel for some tasty bites, live music, and a martini.
