Valentine's Dates atop Mt. Lemmon!

Astro Amore

Spend a romantic evening high above the city lights at our Valentine’s weekend event – Saturday, February 11, 2017.  The Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter’s special Astro Amore Deluxe evening starts with aromantic dinner at the Sawmill Restaurant in Summerhaven.  Following dinner, you’ll proceed to the summit of Mt. Lemmon.  There you’ll witness a scenic sunset, enjoy dessert, and round out the evening with celestial views of awe-inspiring objects through the Schulman 32” telescope.  Treat your Valentine to the heavens above!  Gaze up at the stars, constellations, and other heavenly bodies that commemorate the stories of LOVE – from Star-Crossed lovers such as Orion to the god of love, Eros.  This matchless astronomy venue will captivate your Valentine’s heart.

We offer similar events on February 12, 13, and 14 with a light meal served at the observatory rather than at the Sawmill Restaurant.
