Romantic Getaways

Romance is just about everywhere if you're searching for it—especially right around Valentine's Day. Nebraska has towns called Cupid and Valentine. Illinois has Fidelity and Louisiana has Eros.

Although the following 25 small towns may not have an obvious name, they're perfect for a romantic getaway on February 14.

Rather than reaching for your usual weeknight vino, take the romance up a notch by choosing from one of these 10 romantically named bottles to set the mood. Light some candles, pop the cork, and get to sipping, because nothing says “I love you” quite like a bottle of (romantically named) wine.

The 26 Best Gifts to Celebrate Your First Valentine's Day Together

When you're in a new relationship, spending your first Valentine's Day together is usually exciting—and, if we're being honest, a little bit stressful. It's a holiday all about the L word, which can feel like a heck of a lot of pressure if you two recently started dating. Still, you don't want to pass up on the opportunity to take your romance to the next level—and that means getting your partner just the right gift.

Free Booze, Fun Parties, and More Anti-Valentine's Day Festivities Around DC

Singles, cynics, and spurned lovers can head to DC-area bars and restaurants for free drinks, all-day happy hours, pizza parties, and the chance to swap your ex’s clothing for booze.

Celebrate Valentine's Day in a New and Different Way

Even if you're not a fan of Cupid, you have to admit that if someone hands you a Valentine’s Day card, it can’t help but brighten your day. With that in mind, why not send a virtual Valentine's Day card to St. Jude patients? It's free, only takes a minute and will brighten a child's life!
