What to do this Valentine’s day


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and many people are scrambling to figure out their plans. Whether or not you have a Significant Other, these are some foolproof ways to have an enjoyable Valentine’s Day.

Celebrating with Friends:

There is nothing wrong with celebrating Valentine’s Day with friends – it can even be the most fun!

Head to the movie theater and treat yourself to popcorn and candy.  If going to the movie theater is too much effort, there is always the option of inviting friends over for a movie marathon or binge-watching your favorite TV show.

Either way, you cannot go wrong with eating tons of chocolate with your best friends.

Another great idea is to go to a teen karaoke bar and sing any type of song with your best friends.  This activity is not an exclusive Valentine’s day event, but it can be a great way to spend the evening. You can even sing a romantic song just for fun!

Going to a fair or an amusement park can be another way to have fun with your friends!  Both Great America and Raging Waters are within driving distance and can be tons of fun and are easily affordable.  Although this not an activity that is exclusive to Valentine’s Day,  it can still me an enjoyable way to spend your entire day.

Celebrating with your Significant Other:

You cannot go wrong with a romantic dinner or a fun date.  Mini golfing or bowling can be an awesome way to celebrate Valentine’s Day without spending too much money.

There is also nothing wrong with staying home and enjoying a movie and take-out food together.

Another fun idea would be to go to San Francisco and go to a romantic dinner and maybe attend an interesting event.

San Francisco hosts a plethora of events, such as concerts, art galleries, festivals and more.  This would definitely be a fun place to spend time with your significant other, while also getting the chance to visit San Francisco.

If you are looking for something fun to do during the day, going on a hike and looking at a pretty view is also a great option. Foothills park is beautiful right now and offers scenic views and a great workout!

Planetariums are also romantic because you can watch star and light shows.  The Morrison Planetarium in San Francisco is an impressive planetarium that offers fascinating shows about stars and galaxies that are mirror images of the “real-world counterpart.”

Finally, going to the beach and watching the sunset or walking along the water is fun and romantic, especially if the weather is nice and warm.

Celebrating by yourself:

Whether you are too lazy to make Valentine’s Day plans, or you simply do not care about the holiday, staying home and eating chocolate with your pet is an awesome way to celebrate Valentine’s Day as well!

No matter what you end up doing Valentine’s Day, hopefully it will be filled with lots of chocolate!
