February 14 is approaching and, let's face it, just writing "Happy V-Day!" on your significant other's Facebook wall isn't going to cut it. Whether you've been with your partner for 5 months (for a hot date, here's a "wow'-worthy night that involves a little saving, a little splurging, and a lot of fun), 5 years (for a romantic getaway that won't include lengthy waits at the airport or hours-long highway drives, take a quick trip across the bridge to Coronado), or you're living it up as a San Diego single (grab a group of your coolest single friends and spend a night out in Solana Beach), we have Valentine's Day itineraries for you.

Prior to Feb. 14, make an appointment to get a haircut, facial and/or wax that will leave you feeling beautiful and ready for a hot night out. This salon in Ocean Beach has Aveda products, massage chairs, and complimentary wine.
Check in downtown for this hotel's Rock `n? Romance package that features a suite upgrade, priority access to the hotel's nightclubs, champagne, and a ?Whipped Cream Bikini? amenity that includes strawberries and whipped cream. This may sound like a teenage boy's fantasy come true, but it's not so bad for adults either.
Begin the night at this romantic French bistro just off Orange Avenue. Located in a historic Victorian house close to the Hotel Del Coronado, the restaurant specializes in seafood, duck, and irresistible desserts such as the warm chocolate souffle. Spring for a bottle of Chardonnay or bring a sentimental bottle of wine ($15 corkage fee).
