4 Ways to Treat Your Sweet Around Council Bluffs for Valentine's Day

For Valentine’s Day, sweeten that box of chocolates or brighten up that floral bouquet with one or more of these treats in and around Council Bluffs.

1.) February 3-5 & 10-12 / “Steel Magnolias”

Reserve two tickets to this production at Chanticleer Theater. It’s the story of a young beautician, newly arrived in a small Louisiana town. She finds work at a local salon where a small group of women share a close bond of friendship and welcome her into their group. Tickets are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $10 for students. Friday and Saturday curtain times are 7:30 pm. The Sunday matinee is at 2 pm. The theater is located at 830 Franklin Ave, Council Bluffs. For more information, call 712-323-9955 or visit them online

2.) February 8 / Gaylin Sudik Big Band

Swing and sway with your Valentine to the tunes of the Gaylin Sudik Big Band, 7-10 pm at The Center. Admission is $10 per person for non-members. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own beverages and snacks to share. The Center is located at 714 S Main St, Council Bluffs. For more information, call 712-323-5995 or visit the Bluffs Center online.

3.) February 11 / Sweethearts Love Nature

On Saturday, the 11th, enjoy hot cocoa and a warm fire 7-9 pm at Hitchcock Nature Center, Honey Creek. Couples are invited to take in the beautiful view from the Loess Hills Lodge at night. Hit the trails for a special guided hike or take a more private walk along a lit trail. The only cost to participate is the $2 vehicle daily entrance pass required to enter the park.  To participate, please register online or call 712-545-3283.

4.) February 12 / The Lettermen

Find romance again listening to the hit recordings of The Lettermen.  It’s hard for members of a certain generation to forget “When I Fall in Love”, “Shangri-la”, “Put Your Head on My Shoulder”, and other timeless favorites. The performance begins at 3 pm at The Arts Center, Iowa Western Community College, Council Bluffs.  Tickets for this trip down memory lane can be purchased online or by calling 712-388-7140.
