If you love the outdoors, lace up your skates and take a few laps around the Frog Pond, the ice skating rink on Boston Common. Surrounded by the lighted trees and beautiful park, it’s great spot date spot and located near several great restaurants and a few places to warm up with hot cocoa.

Venice, Paris, Carmel-by-the-Sea; everyone explores the idea of a Valentine’s Day getaway at one point in their lives.

Boston is chock full of decadent eats. Depending on what you’re in the mood for, head on down to the North End for some pasta overlight candlelight or out to Cambridge for some upscale and trendy delights. Just make sure you book reservations soon, seats tend to fill up quickly!


If you’re a couple who loves to take walks and explore together, go on a romantic stroll along the freedom trail or wander through the Public Gardens (bonus points if the city’s covered in a fresh snowfall). If being outside in February isn’t your thing, check out the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum or Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for some special Valentine’s events!
