There’s certainly nothing wrong with cocktails and a romantic dinner. It’s reliable and gets the job done. But if you want to try something different, here are some unique ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day…
Do something outdoors. Imagine you and your significant other alone together on a remote trail in a beautiful national or state park. Watching the wildlife, getting some exercise and taking in awesome views — that’s what memories are made of.
Take an interesting class together. Find a common interest that neither of you have ever properly explored. Maybe it’s yoga or tarot reading or perhaps you’ve both always wanted to learn how to scuba dive. Remember, those that play together, stay together.
Volunteer. Giving back to the community together can be a great way to spend Valentine’s Day. You could volunteer for a river cleanup or help deliver meals for Meals on Wheels or help out at an animal shelter. Websites like this one can assist you in finding the right organization.
Travel…to your hometown. Traveling to other places can be difficult to plan and difficult to fund. But at the same time, traveling together can often create some of your most cherished memories. So why not be a tourist in your hometown? Grab your camera, your fanny pack, a list of attractions and your significant other and hit the road!
There are so many unique ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and you could easily come up with your own. Of course, the most important part is being together.
