Check out these inexpensive Valentine’s Day date ideas!

Find a Beach

Who goes to the beach in the winter time? Bundle up and hit the shore. It will be a light crowd for sure, and you can enjoy the scenery for free! Bring blankets for snuggling, firewood if that is legal on your beach, and a picnic basket full of Valentine’s Day favorites!

Go to a Free Concert

Look in your local paper, online (e.g., locally on the Florida Times-Union’s, and Jacksonville Magazine online,, and others) or City Guide for free concerts on Valentine’s Day. Think outdoor symphonies, or local bands.

Go to Open Mic Night

Whether you love entertaining a crowd, or you want to hear other amateur talents, check your paper or City Guide for local Open Mic Nights near you.

Host Game Night

Want to hang with your best friends or best friend couples for Valentine’s Day? Host a Game Night! Have everyone bring their favorite board or card game to your house and share.

Have a Pinterest Night

Love Pinterest? Collect your craft materials at home and start searching for a craft or recipe that you can do with what you already have. Be prepared for successes and mistakes. Both can make for good photos. Have a significant other assist or photograph.
