Are you looking for a way to make your Valentine’s Day more memorable? We asked peeps in our Pittsburgh and San Francisco offices for their recs, and they came up with a bevy of brilliant suggestions to help you plan some hip holiday activities. From rock climbing to a monster truck show and glamping with elephant seal pups, we’ve collected some cool ideas. Check ’em out:

Pittsburgh

“I’m a big fan of a date at a museum, specifically the Mattress Factory!”
-Jeanette K, Shipping Operations Manager

“The Climbing Wall! You can go bouldering in East Liberty, and the cost for two people — including shoe rental — is only $32! It’s super fun and challenging.”
-Stephanie S, Customer Care Advocate

“For fans of both the macabre and mini-golf, I highly recommend Monster Mini Golf in Monroeville. It’s a spooky indoor black light mini-golf course and old school arcade that even has throwback animatronic monsters along the course. My boyfriend and I went there on our second date and had a blast.”
-Roxana G, Plus Size Fit Specialist

“My friends have ‘Love Sucks, Give Me Trucks’ Valentine’s Day and go to the Monster Truck Jam.”
-Erin P, Intake Receiving Lead

“Go on a guided tour of the elephant seal pups in Ano Nuevo (south of Monterey). Camping or Glamping is available as well.”
-Canon P, Production Designer

“In S.F. (well, not really *in* SF), head to Crown Beach in Alameda. There are beautiful views of the city skyline, and a really mellow walk that spits you out in a bird sanctuary.”
-Janet H, User Experience Designer

“Go to a Sound Sculpture Concert! A couple I know went and they said it was an interesting experience. You sit in a dark concert hall with fantastic acoustics while the composer creates “sound sculptures.” It’s always different so every concert is one-of-a-kind.”
-Anna D, Associate Producer

“I love Corona Heights. It’s a big red rocky hill (and dog park!) in the middle of the city with nice views. Great place to share a bottle of wine and look at all of San Francisco.”
-Erynn H, Graphic Designer
