Future Shores Traditions: Valentine’s Day


Ready to fall in love…with Shores? Few neighborhoods in Los Angeles rival the romance found in Marina del Rey…whether your passions are ignited by watching an enchanting ocean sunset on your balcony, strolling hand-in-hand with your love along the Marina or enjoying one of the outstanding prix fixe Valentine’s Day menus offered at one of the many nearby restaurants, living at Shores will provide you with endless opportunities to share life’s most romantic moments with your amour. Here are a couple of ways to spend Valentine’s Day at Shores.

1. Spend an Evening At Home

If you prefer to spend a quiet night wrapped in your sweetheart’s arms, then stay home! Light some candles, chill a bottle of your favorite champagne and enjoy the comforts of home enhanced by the luxury amenities at Shores. Watch the sun dip below the horizon while eating chocolate covered strawberries on your balcony…or even better…from the Sky Terraces rooftop. Draw a bubble bath for your honey in your apartment…or head down to the community’s relaxing Jacuzzi, where you both can wind down (or steam up?).

2. Spend the Day At Burton Chace Park

Did you know that Burton Chace Park is only two miles away from Shores? That means it’s only a 35-minute walk or a 15-minute bike ride away. With the historically pleasant February weather in Marina del Rey, why not take the whole day off and pack a romantic picnic lunch so you can spend quality time with your love in the great outdoors?

3. Take Your Love Out To Dinner

There are plenty of fantastic dining options just minutes away from Shores. Café del Rey, Shanghai Red’s, Via Veneto, Casa Ado, C&O Trattoria…the list goes on and on. Whether you’re in the mood for Italian or seasonal California cuisine, many of these restaurants offer Valentine’s Day specials…just don’t forget to make a reservation a few weeks in advance!

4. Sail Around the Marina on  a Dinner Cruise

If you want to give your significant other a true “Marina del Rey Valentine’s Day experience,”you must book a romantic dinner cruise around the Marina at some point when you live at Shores. This year, Hornblower Dinner Cruises offer a private four-course dinner with champagne flowing all night long and live music entertainment to set the mood. (Not that you will need anything more than ocean breezes, the quiet lull of the cruise boat and the twinkling lights on shore to inspire the most romantic moment.)

February 14 will surely be a day to remember every year at Shores… whether you’re blissfully attached or unattached.  Even if you’re single, you could always join your fellow residents for a S.A.D. (Singles Awareness Day) party in the clubhouse! Happy Valentine’s Day from Shores!
