Date Ideas for St. Valentine's Day

St. Valentine's Day is one that offers the promise of romance, but too many people seem to settle for watching movies at home or having dinner at the same old restaurant. For couples who want to make the most out of this day, there are many ways to have fun and enjoy yourselves without having to spend a great deal of money.

Here are five terrific date ideas that will make your St. Valentine's Day a memorable one without having to break the bank.

Ghost Tour

Nothing brings a couple together like a little fright, so going on a local ghost tour is the perfect way to see new sights. Almost every large community has some type of ghost tour that provides amenities that you can enjoy. Plus, there will be good reason to hold your special someone close to you while on the tour itself. It's a great way to learn more about where you live and it provides an inexpensive adventure that helps brings both of your closer together even if the cause may be of supernatural origin.

Wine Bar Crawl

While the bar crawl is a typical adventure that is shared by friends, a wine bar crawl is a different way to spend an evening together. Here, you travel from one bar to another that sells fine wine and enjoy a glass or two at each stop. You can have a friend drive or rent a limo to make the night extra special. You may find that local limo rentals offer a wine crawl package that makes for the perfect evening for two as you discover new clubs and bars in the city.

Dancing Lessons

Why just go to the club when you can take a few dancing lessons and learn something new together. Many dance studios offer lessons that can be taught in a short time and one you can use on your next trip to the club. It provides you an opportunity to learn something together which makes for one of the best dates you can have with your spouse.

Roller Skating

If dancing is not your thing, then putting on a pair of roller skates just might be the answer. There are skating rinks in virtually all major cities and towns, many of which have special events for Valentine's Day. You should look for a rink that caters to an older crowd and provides a special skate for couples on that day which will be inexpensive and loads of fun. Plus, you'll be hanging on to each other, especially if you have not skated in a while.

A Trip to the Museum

This is not your everyday trip, but one that is held after-hours where many museums offer special tours or parties that celebrate Valentine's Day. You can take a picnic basket and enjoy the evening which often has live music for entertainment. The price is usually just right and the two of you can spend more time together enjoying each other's company at your local museum.

These are just a few of the many ideas you can use to spice up your Valentine's Day.
