It's okay to show a public sign of affection or two or three, because the scene happening in Downtown Lake Worth is pretty cozy and pretty darn nice.
Where to Eat and Drink
LULA, a mash-up of Lucerne and Lake, the city's two main streets running to/from the Atlantic Ocean - the area offers an eclectic mix of shops, independent restaurants, art galleries, museums and more. Thanks to LULA's bustling independent restaurant scene, foodie couples will find it excels in the culinary arts. Most notable are Havana Hideout, which was featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives" for its Latin street food, and the Poutine Dog Café, featuring a variety of poutine - from traditional (French fries and cheese curds topped with gravy) to BBQ Pulled Pork, Vegetable, and Spicy Italian, to name just a few. As dinner winds down and the evening gets started, make sure to visit the famous Bamboo Room for a variety of live music.
Street Painting Festival
And on February 23 and 24, go arm-and-arm with your babe to experience a completely different type of art gallery. As artists from around the world, use the downtown pavement as a canvas to create a temporary gallery of original works of art. The Lake Worth Street Painting Festival is considered the world's largest of its kind. The event is free to the public and features live music from a central stage.
