The Adrenaline Duo
This type of couple lets their love soar at Knott’s Berry Farm, home to record-breaking roller coasters like HangTime, California’s first dive coaster, or GhostRider, the tallest wooden coaster on the West Coast. For a twist in time, the duo cheers on their favorite knight at Medieval Times, an authentic jousting tournament complete with real blades of valor and full knight regalia. For a thrilling night out, they venture to The Cauldron, a haunted house-themed bar serving French fare and craft cocktails. Holding their sweetheart tight as they share a face-to-face encounter with the other side, this couple completely immerses themselves in the spooky ambiance of the evening.

For those yearning to take their adventure to new heights, they can travel nearby to Flightdeck Flight Simulator. This immersive and exhilarating experience allows enthusiasts to step into the virtual cockpit of an aircraft, giving a taste of piloting without ever leaving the ground. The DoubleTree by Hilton is the perfect accommodation for this thrill-seeking couple, complete with a complimentary shuttle service to the area’s top attractions, an outdoor pool, on-site restaurant and lounge, and spacious suites. This duo should also be sure to get their complimentary chocolate chip cookie upon check-in, ensuring a sweet start to their vacation with a bit of a sugar rush.

The Savvy Spenders
This couple’s adventure consists of snagging discounted tickets to Knott’s Berry Farm, maximizing their savings without sacrificing the thrill. They prioritize budget-friendly dining experiences like tucking into a corner at Portillo’s with a cake shake and two straws, adding a sweet touch to their meal. They also venture into Buena Park’s Koreatown, where they are able to explore over 90 delicious restaurants and boutique stores. Within the district, The Source OC calls out to this couple as a haven for cheap eats and beverages, including Korean street foods like the mozzarella hot dog at Myungrang Hot Dog, spicy tteokbokki at Jaws TPK, or matcha croffles at Don Melt. As the sun sets, they pack up some local bites and head to Ralph B. Clark Regional Park for a romantic picnic during golden hour while feeding each other spoonfuls of the honey affogato from Honeymee. The Fairfield Inn and Hampton Inn are great hotel options for this pair, known for their affordable rates and the added perk of a complimentary hot breakfast to kick-start the day without breaking the bank. Free continental breakfast is also offered at the Quality Inn, Howard Johnson, The Berry Inn, and SureStay hotels around town.

The History Buffs
History buffs can embark on a journey that begins at Knott’s Independence Hall, which boasts free admission year-round. Here they will step back in time to the birth of the nation as you walk through the only brick-by-brick replica of the original in Philadelphia. Arm in arm, this couple sets out for a visit to Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner, a charming spot that gained such popularity that it evolved into Knott's Berry Farm. The park began as a replica Ghost Town which still stands today and offers a nostalgic journey into the Old West. Over the years, additional themed lands popped up including the Boardwalk, Fiesta Village, and Camp Snoopy. When they’re feeling snackish, this couple jets on over to Porto’s Bakery, a household name in Southern California known for their Cuban sandwiches and pastries.

The journey began when the Porto family arrived in California from Cuba in the 1970s. What started as a modest storefront in Los Angeles has since blossomed into a bakery powerhouse, a testament to their commitment to crafting exceptional food. After a delicious meal, our couple can then immerse themselves in the charm of yesteryear as they admire three distinctive buildings in the Buena Park Historic District—the Whitaker Jaynes House, the Bacon House, and the Stagestop Hotel. Among these historical gems, they encounter the home of the original founder of Buena Park, the structure steeped in unique stories and the enduring legacy of a bygone era. Admission to this attraction is free of charge and can be visited by appointment. A prehistoric view of Orange County can also be seen for free at the Ralph B. Clark Interpretive Center, boasting fossils as impressive as a 9-million-year-old baleen whale skeleton from the ice age. History fans who want to be as close to Buena Park’s most historic places can stay just steps away from Knott’s Berry Farm’s front gates at the Knott’s Hotel, which is currently wrapping up a multi-million-dollar renovation.

The Prestigious Pair
The first thing on this pair’s agenda is an elegant breakfast at Basilur Tea, known around town for the fluffiest soufflé pancakes topped with fresh fruit, hand-whipped cream, and maple syrup. At Knott’s Berry Farm, they effortlessly glide through ride queues with exclusive Fast Lane passes, maximizing their time in the theme park. The excitement continues at Disneyland, a magic kingdom where they’ll find themselves barreling down on the Matterhorn Bobsleds one minute, and speeding through treacherous canyons on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad the next. They’ll be sure to stake out a spot on Main Street and share a kiss beneath the evening’s firework spectacular.

They also reserve an exclusive private room at EKO Karaoke, where they unleash their vocal talents, while ordering in some light bites and expertly crafted cocktails. For dinner, this couple treats themselves to a delectable steak dinner at Gaucho Grill, savoring the rich flavors of Argentine grilling. Finally, the duo unwinds for a few blissful hours at Beach Boulevard Club, a 1920’s-style speakeasy featuring a lively dueling piano show, conveniently located just across the street from their hotel. They request their favorite love songs and let the melodies become the soundtrack to their date night. This couple is always on the search for the VIP treatment and seeks to elevate their travel experiences wherever they can, so they stay the night at the Courtyard by Marriott. These accommodations include perks like an on-site bistro and Starbucks, a fitness studio, cozy outdoor fire pit, and the benefit of being walking distance to Buena Park’s world-famous dinner shows.
