A little time together sounds like the perfect way to share that lovin’ feeling this February, especially in Torrance. It’s conveniently located on the sparkly SoCal coast, just 10 miles south of LAX and 17 miles north of Long Beach Airport.
Torrance has that laid-back beach vibe that feels like a private hideaway for two. A well-appointed hotel, a romantic dinner and maybe a stroll on the beach is our pick for a perfect getaway. Here’s everything you need to know:
You found the one you love, let us take care of the rest. From the hotel to the dinner, we gathered the best Valentine’s Day deals in Torrance. The Miyako Hybrid Hotel, Torrance Inn & Suites, Bluestem and Best Western are all offering discounted stays with Miyako including a special gift, as well.
With 15 hotels to choose from, it’s easy to make your Valentine’s Day experience in Torrance special.
What will it be for your and your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day? The special 3-course dinner menu at Andre’s, the Eat Your Heart Out, a 3-course dinner (roses included) at Black Angus, or the decadent Lobster Lover’s menu at Gaetano’s? If low-key is more your vibe, how about a heart-shaped pizza from Piccini?
For cocktails, we love Frida at Del Amo. You can’t go wrong with their classic margaritas – they’re sipilicious! If you’re ready for something a lil’ more “wild”, head to Madre, an Oaxacan restaurant located in the heart of historic Old Torrance, for one of these amazing fusion drinks; Paloma Spritz (tequila blanco, mezcal, grapefruit, lime, sparkeling rose), Chido Wey! (mezcal, tepache, honey, lemon) and even a Froze (tequila, rosé, passionfruit, raspberry, grapefruit, lemon).
If you still have room for dessert, swing by King’s Hawaiian on the way back to your hotel, for a heart shaped Dobash cake – a Hawaii classic. Or, pick up heart shaped cookies and a fire breathing dragon cake from Torrance Bakery.
A Walk on the Beach
A solid classic, it’s hard to beat a stroll on the beach when it comes to romance. Torrance Beach has the added bonus of being local and less crowded than most Southern California beaches. Plus, it has plenty of parking (big bonus), views of the Palos Verde Peninsula and loads of places to eat when you get hungry. Talk about great Cali vibes!
For Art Lovers
Art has that chat-and-hold-hands-romcom kind of vibe that makes for a great date night. While the sun is still out, walk the art walk and explore the insta-worthy mural scene – each has its own unique story. Also, check out the Torrance Art Museum – It’s free and the ever-changing exhibits will enhance your appreciation for modern and contemporary artwork.
If the kiss cam has taught us anything, it’s that love is alive and well at sporting events. With several stadiums nearby, Torrance is the perfect homebase for every major sport in Los Angeles. While most sports aren’t currently in season, you can still plan ahead by grabbing your Lakers, Dodgers, and Rams tickets, or maybe the Ducks, Galaxy, Angels or Chargers tickets. They’re all nearby.
There’s a lot to consider, but there’s no need to do that all yourself. Stop by the California Welcome Center Torrance to get more personal suggestions. You can plan your trip through our interactive kiosk, shop locally-sourced merchandise, get custom activity planning and more. The California Welcome Center is located in the Del Amo Fashion Center at the main entrance, level 1.
