Love in Durham: Top Romantic Activities & Events in February

There’s always an element of romance when you book a getaway at Arrowhead Inn. Seeing as February is the month of love, we thought we’d provide a guide for the top romantic things to do both onsite and around Durham. Book your favorite room and make every night a date night.

Arts-in-DurhamLove & the Arts

You can’t go wrong with dinner and a show. Treat your honey to a night at the theater; there are some excellent performances coming to a nearby stage in February. If you’re in town on the 11th, don’t miss Virtues of Loving Her, A Cabaret Showcase. The Durham Performing Arts Center will be featuring the popular Hedwig & The Angry Inch and Tony Award-winning The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Nighttime next month. You can also get a behind-the-scenes tour of DPAC on the first Monday of the month.

Whether you love to play, love to listen, or love to dance to it, you’ve come to the right place. The music never dies in Durham and there’s something to do nearly every night of the week. Join a jam session specializing in bluegrasscountryblues, or even ukulele music! Get your groove on after dark at the illuminating GLOW Jump ever Friday night. On February 19th, the legendary Tony Bennett will grace the DPAC stage. A voice known to set the mood, this event alone is worth the trip and sure to add that extra romance to your Durham getaway.

The SunTrust Broadway 2017 season is underway at DPAC! The Broadway shows include Chicago, The King and I, The Bodyguard, Something Rotton, An American in Paris, Mamma Mia, Finding Neverland and Motown the Musical. View the showtimes and purchase tickets to plan a getaway to Durham you won’t soon forget.

Keep in mind we have a dinner and a show package where we can host an early dinner so you can make it in time for the show! Check it out.

We can of course offer recommendations based on your preferences. From food trucks to a New York Times and Food Network favorite, we have quite the range of local flavors and fusions. If you’re in town over a weekend, be sure to sample it all at the Taste of Downtown Durham Food Tour. Whatever you do, come hungry!

If you’re a beer lover, you’re in the right place! The Bull City can also be referred to as the Beer City with all of the incredible breweries and pubs. Grab your favorite drinking buddy and get your fill of the local suds. More of a wino? There are some fantastic wine bars and local tasting events in Durham.
