Looking to sneak away to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your love bug? Here are my favorite romantic weekend getaway packages from Bass Pro’s Big Cypress Lodge in the pyramid. Whether you are from Memphis and looking for a little staycation or visiting with your significant other, Big Cypress Lodge has so many exciting activities and new experiences for couples.
If you are researching couples resorts for a romantic weekend getaway, you should consider Bass Pro Shop’s Big Cypress Lodge. At first glance I dismissed Bass Pro as a funtopia for dudes, little did I know that there are exciting activities, delicious eats, luxurious pampering, shopping, and top notch suites. Big Cypress has several stay packages to choose from. In this post I will go over all of the activities and also share a review on our experience!
Romantic Getaway Suites
I love how the suites are themed from the inside out. Keep in mind that all of the rooms are actually indoors under the roof of the pyramid yet Big Cypress does an amazing job at making you feel like you are individual cabins. As we approached our room the path lead us up on to a front porch with a couple of rocking chairs and a few windows. We stayed in the duck cabin and it looked 100% the part but much fancier. For example, our bathroom had both a walk in shower and a separate jacuzzi soaking tub. From our porch, we overlooked the entire Bass Pro store and play floor.
GOULD’S DAY SPA
First on the agenda was a couple’s massage at the Gould Spa located inside of Big Cypress Lodge. I have gotten a facial there before and it was such a relaxing experience. You can tell by our sleepy faces in the photo below. We both fell asleep during our massages. The spa offers many different services such as pedicures, manicure, facials, massages, and more.
FISHBOWL BOWLING & BILLIARDS
Want to get a little competition going? Head on over to the Fishbowl and spark up a game of pool or bowling. Winner gets to choose the dessert!
Bass Pro even has an indoor shooting and archery range. Greg and I have both done a range date before with our firearms but never with a bow and arrow! What better activity for Valentine’s than to learn how to play cupid?! Greg of course is very proficient but this was my first time. Greg and the instructor both gave me tips that had me shooting in the white ring after 15 minutes. Needless to say, I will be saving up for a bow so we can practice a little more this spring! If you aren’t keen on weapons, there is a carnival style range in the store where you can put a quarter in and aim for the target.
SHOPPING AND SWEETS
There are so many exciting fashions, toys, and outdoor products. We had fun shopping for shoes, trying out the fishing poles, looking at the sunglasses, and perusing the boats. After dinner Greg took me to the fudge shop and treated me to my choice of freshly made fudge. I chose praline and Greg decided on the original with M&Ms however there were flavor choices to suite all palettes. Our soda and fudge made the perfect treat in bed by the mock fireplace in our duck cabin.
Step onto the country’s tallest free-standing elevator and journey 300 feet in the air to take in the sights of Memphis! This 28-story elevator features floor to ceiling glass on all four sides and leads guests to a glass observation deck at the top.
The Lookout is hands down my most favorite restaurant in memphis. Not only are the view breath taking but the food is absolutely delicious.
I am in love with the shrimp and grits appetizer and the red snapper, chicken, and steak are also among my favorites. I couldn’t decide on an entree so I went with the chicken and my sweet date shared his yummy steak with me! I’m one lucky gal!
We finished off our evening in the suite with a little night cap. I enjoyed a glass of champagne and fudge while greg broke in to the Nothin’ Bunt Cakes and we watched some basketball.
