Bored of the usual V-Day fanfare? Go for something other than the typical enormous bouquets and sweets in outlandish boxes and spend Cupid’s Day experiencing something new. Go out of town with your partner to a place you’ve never been to, or finally do the food crawl you two have been planning—there are definitely other thrilling activities besides a typical romantic dinner.
We’ve put together a quick list of exciting new ways you can celebrate Valentine’s:
- Catch the sunset on the road
A little road trip after work to a city outside town is a fun way to jumpstart a romantic night out! For busy bodies typically holed up in the office, catching the sunset—whether on the road, or by a nearby beach just outside the Metro— is a fine break to spend with a loved one. Should you find yourself by a beach or bay walk, be sure to dress the part of an adored partner.

- Do a Food Tour
While we are all for a 4-course meal in a candle-lit table somewhere fancy, you might want to try a food adventure worth your money. No idea where to go? Worry not as numerous apps and websites can point you where the best wine bar is, or where to get the tastiest pizza, and even a great dessert place where you and your significant other can spend alone time.
