How to Spend Valentine’s Day at Millville by the Sea


Ahhh, February, how we love thee. After running full speed ahead in January, it feels that much sweeter to wind down, get a much-needed pedicure, and indulge in a glass of wine and a few tasty morsels of dark chocolate. (You deserve it.) 


On that note, you’ve probably been so busy that you haven’t even thought about planning something special this Valentine’s Days. Little known fact: Millville by the Sea is one of the best places to spend quality time with the people you love most. If you’re still trying to plan the perfect day filled with self care and pampering, take a look at our agenda below. 


Show Your Body Some 💗

Begin your day with some deep breathing and meditation. Kick off Valentine’s Day by doing some early morning yoga or aerobics at our onsite Fitness Center. 


Picnic in the Park 
After a refreshing workout, you will most likely have worked up an appetite. Pack a yummy lunch with all of your favorite fixins and set up camp on a table at Huntington Park. There’s even a beautiful view of our very own Sand Dollar Lake!


Shall We Brunch?

Or, if you feel like letting someone else do the cooking, head down to Bethany Beach for some breakfast at Sunshine Crepes with your gal pals. We recommend the Florentine crepe or the Riviera! 


Explore Bethany Beach

Since you’re already in Bethany Beach...stick around and explore the area! Between all of the unique shops and fabulous eats, you and your friends or (your partner) can make a full day out of it.


Walk the Boardwalk

Ice cream, souvenir’re going to love walking around the Bethany Beach Boardwalk. After lunch, grab a cone with your sweetie and take in the sights. 



Cheers to Self Care 

If you feel like spending the day solo, treat yourself to a glorious massage at The Spa on Hollywood. This relaxing oasis is located inside the charming Bethany Beach Ocean Suites Residence Inn - you can even drink a mimosa or two while you’re getting pampered!
