5 awesome reasons to skydive on Valentine’s Day
So it seems it’s that time of year again… time to start thinking of what to do on Valentine’s Day, what gift to buy your significant other, or for some, how to avoid anything that involves Valentine’s Day all together. Love it or hate it, February is here, and you’ve got less than a week until that February 14th date rolls around.
Not that we’re biased or anything, but here are 6 awesome reasons you should definitely go skydiving on Valentine’s Day. Trust us, its way cooler (and more fun) than dinner and a movie.
1. Ditch chocolates and flowers and do something different.
Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day becomes pretty routine after awhile. Chocolates, flowers, dinner and a movie… most of the time it’s something along those lines. Break the mold this year and do something different. Maybe it’s way out of your comfort zone or seems too out of the box… but why not? Change it up this year and book a tandem skydiving jump for yourself, you and your plus one, or your entire group! Either way, we promise it will be a Valentine’s Day you won’t forget, and you’ll have awesome pics/video to prove it.
2. Get closer to your significant other with an adrenaline-packed experience.
For naturally adventurous couples, this is right up your alley. For everyone else, you know what they say — “couples who play together, stay together”. Whether it’s the excitement that builds in anticipation for hours (or even days) leading up to your jump, or the memories you share from your exhilarating skydive, jumping out of a plane is an experience that will last far beyond the lifetime of chocolates or flowers!
3. You don’t have to stress about finding a gift.
Ever notice a pattern of “the usual” V-day gifts? According to the National Retail Federation in this Mashable article, here are the most common Valentine’s Day gifts: greeting cards, candy, flowers, an evening out, jewelry, clothing & gift cards. Don’t be a statistic…this year give the thrill of a lifetime with a skydiving adventure! Finding the perfect gift (or any gift) can be pretty stressful, so why deal with that when you can give someone an adventure that they’ll remember forever?
4. You can avoid annoying restaurant waits and reservations.
Dinner and movie – the classic Valentine’s date plan that never (or sometimes) fails. If you’re like most people, you hate long waits, crowded restaurants, and dealing with restaurant reservations – and that’s what you get on Valentine’s Day if you’re planning ahead. If you’ve ever tried to throw together a last minute Valentine’s dinner, the long wait sounds like a walk in the park. This year, why not avoid that all together and go tandem skydiving! Save the dinner and a movie for a day where everyone isn’t flocking to every restaurant in town, and head to Skydive Santa Barbara, jump out of a plane, and have a day date instead.
