Most couples love the romantic bliss of Valentine's Day. The atmosphere of the day allows you to forget about everything else and focus on the amazing love you share with your significant other.
As much as couples look forward to this special time of year, it can be hard to figure out what to plan. If it were possible, we would all choose to fly off to our dream destinations, but for now, we have to work with what we have.
And it's not as bad as you might think. Staycations give you the chance to explore options in your city without having to travel while saving money.
So don't stress, with these few ideas you can still have the best Valentine's staycation of your life:Try a classic dinner date
