With Valentine's Day on Friday, there's a lot of love in the air -- or maybe some panic, if you haven't planned anything to do yet with your significant other.
But have no fear – if you didn't make dinner reservations, there are several things you can still look into doing around the Big D to have fun and impress that special someone.
Fun at Klyde Warren Park
You and your date could enjoy a romantic walk, picnic, or dance and listen to the Mad Men Swing Band performing at the Muse Family Performance Pavilion, Klyde Warren Park makes a great spot for couples to relax from 6:30 to 10 p.m. – for free. If you have a sweet tooth, there will be a pop-up dessert booth on site. Click here for more details.
If money is no object, you can take in the sights of North Texas from an entirely new level – from the air. Several area companies offer helicopter and plane rides, and some even offer specialty rides just for couples. Check out Epic Helicopters, Starlight Flight and Longhorn Helicopters for some ideas.
While many cooking classes are already booked, if dessert is the way to you or loved one's heart, you can learn how to make macaroons together from 2 to 5 p.m. at Sur La Table. Click here for details.
Enjoy the view from the GeO-Deck at Reunion Tower
Whether during the day or at night, the GeO-Deck at Reunion Tower offers some impressive views of Dallas. If you're looking to add a nice touch, you can buy a package that includes valet parking, admission to the GeO-Dreck and a sparkling wine toast from 4 to 6 p.m. But if you're trying to plan on a budget, just visiting the GeO-Deck makes a great spot for couples.

Music and a classic movie
Dinner and a movie on Valentine's Day might be a bit cliché, but music and a movie certainly aren't. Ricki Derek and his quartet will perform songs from Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole and more at the historic Lakewood Theater. Afterward, a screening of the classic Casablanca will be shown.
