#1 Cozy Photostudio

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been together or what kind of relationship you are in now. It’s always a good idea to capture your feelings and create some sweet memories in the name of love. Besides, having your photos taken together is a unique and bonding experience.

Take a day or the whole weekend, if possible, to play tourists. A sentimental getaway is a perfect opportunity to (finally!) leave your comfort zone, visit the special place you've always wanted to see, and simply change the scene.

Open-air tubs for stargazing, mountain biking, and festivals – the options are endless!

#3 Relaxing Yogastudio

#4 Bachata Master Class

If your plans for the holiday include a romantic partner, go dancing! Based on multiple pieces of research, dancing is good for both your mental and physical health. The best thing about the bachata class is that it requires no previous skills. A certified coach will make sure to draw up a program based on your skills (or absence of any) to ensure you two feel confident on the dancefloor.

Places to Go on Valentine's Day with Friends

Celebrating your BFFs who double your joy and give you a shoulder to cry on is a great way to show that they’re appreciated.

They’re sure to host board-game nights.

Kart Racing Center

Hungry for some extreme? Ditch the vision of dressing up in your finest and watching “Titanic” (not again!) on Valentine's Day.

Places to Go for Singles on Valentine's Day

Still here? Looks like you’re single.
OK.
If no one gets into the picture, and you’re not dating yet, it’s called FREEDOM, guys. What should singles do on Valentine’s Day? The world is yours. Level up those feel-good endorphins by getting into your favorite activities. Going to a rage room? Excellent! Learning to make piña colada by taking an online cocktail class? Yummy! Hitting your favorite restaurant with an overpriced menu? Bon appétit! When it comes to singles Valentine's Day is like Hermione Granger’s Mokeskin pouch: there are no limits on this one.

Don’t forget to buy a bottle or two for your loved ones. They’ll be excited to hear about the cinnamon-tasting notes that tend to affluent Italian red.

#12 SPA Resort to Relax

Treat yourself to a SPA. What can be better than luxuriating in the jacuzzi with your favorite magazine or just daydreaming during a Thai massage session? It’s no doubt you’ll see many couples here and there. Well, not everyone gets as lucky as you on this day.

#13 Blind Date

Now, this is tricky. Another adrenaline-filled option for someone who’s single yet feels risky on St. V-Day. Whether you’re looking for a new love story to begin or just being playful and ready to step out of your comfort zone, a blind date is your ticket to Adventureland.

Volunteer Center

Love is about giving. As weird as it may sound, focusing on someone else’s needs can change your perspective and even add life energy.

Needless to say, you feel grateful for all you have at the end of the day.

Unwind, meditate, and brush up on your tea skills. There’s something mysterious about a tea ceremony! Together with a true tea guru, you’ll be getting into the details and rituals of a tea ceremony.
