Why go have dinner at a crowded restaurant, which may kill the romantic vibe when you can be in your Valentine’s arms, dancing the night or day away? Even better, if you aren’t a skilled dancer, a ballroom dancing class will offer you lessons on how to get your two-step right. This is fun and a great way for you and your partner to connect and feel romantic. Use Google and Yelp to help you find locations in your area.

2. Paint Nite:

Paint Nite has become very popular in New York City and they have events across the country. Basically, it’s a creative night out where you get to create your own one-of-a-kind painting to take home.

3. Movie Dining Experience:

Are you two movie buffs and foodies? Places like iPic Theaters might be the perfect spot to check out on Valentine’s Day. They offer a great movie dining experience with comfy seating and table service. If you’re not near an iPic theater location, just Google ‘movie dining experience <your city>’ to find a location near you that offers this experience.

4. Take a pottery class:

Ever seen the movie “Ghost”? The pottery scene is one of the most memorable romantic movie scenes of all time and you can have your own Ghost moment with your significant other on Valentine’s Day by taking a pottery class! Just Google ‘pottery classes‘ to find one in your area and don’t forget to check Groupon for any deals.

5. Dinner at Medieval Times:

Experience your own version of Games of Thrones on Valentine’s Day by heading over to Medieval Times for a fun night of dinner, jousting and sitting in the King’s court rooting for your favorite knight. They currently have a Valentine’s Day couples package special for $110 with code VDAY18.

Whatever you and your Valentine decide to do on that special day, just remember to enjoy the moments and appreciate the love you both share. That’s what Valentine’s Day is all about. Have fun!
