This February 14, think outside of the heart-shaped box. Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love, and not just for romantic lovers only. Spend the day with cherished family and friends, or taking care of #1 – yourself.  And while chocolates and roses are fine, creating unforgettable moments is a far better declaration of love. Even better news, this year Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday. When your greatest love is travel, V-Day is the ideal excuse to get away.

Whether you are single or committed or somewhere in between, here are some fun, unique ways to spend time with the loves in your life in these exciting cities.
