You feel like maybe you are missing something. AH! Chocolate of course! Head over the Chocolate Covered Wagon to satiate you and your partner’s sweet tooth. Grab some of the best chocolate dipped raspberries and strawberries. And of course, you can choose the type of chocolate including white, milk, or dark. And don’t forget the salt-water taffy. Check out Chocolate Covered Wagon’s selection.

3. Archibald’s Restaurant

At Gardner Village, there are two amazing restaurants with two very different experiences. Archibald’s Restaurant and Mystique Dining. More about Mystique in a moment. First up, Archibald’s. The whole month, Archibald’s Restaurant has a special dinner lined up for you and your other half. Start with a fried green tomato and a breaded avocado sampler. Then choose from two of four select entrees. And you can finish it off by sharing a piece of Strawberry Creme Brulee or Chocolate Bombe dessert.

Mystique Dining is one of the most unique dining experiences in Utah. Only at Mystique will you be able to experience dinner and a magic show. Yes, you read that right. But it’s more than just pulling a rabbit out of a hat. The entire experience is in their grand dining room that is incredibly ornate and intimate. In fact, only 30 guests can witness each performance. This isn’t about grand illusions. You’ll get magic right up close and personal. Visit their website to book your reservations before it fills up!

5. Fresh Flowers At Simply Flowers

The Valentine’s Day flower arrangements at Simply Flowers are better than just any store-bought flowers. You can order Simply Flowers online. Delivery is available throughout the Salt Lake Valley. Pre-made flower arrangements are also ready-to-go at the shop at Gardner Village.

6. The Kissing Bridge

Lastly, before you leave, you’ll absolutely want to experience a romantic smooch and embrace on Gardner Village’s Kissing Bridge. It’s a great way to cap off your Valentine’s Day activities at Gardner Village.
