It’s almost that time of year again.  The time when love-struck men and women of all ages run around in a craze collecting red roses, writing love letters in heart-shaped cards and planning the ultimate romantic dates.  When it comes to planning a great Valentine’s Day experience for you and your loved one, look no further than all of the great options Greater Raleigh has to offer!

There are dozens of Valentine’s Day menus to choose from on Feb. 14th this year.  Whether you want to just kick back and have a relaxed meal at a comfortable restaurant or you want an extravagant dining experience in an upscale environment, you can find it here.  Enjoy your dinner along with a movie at Raleighwood Cinema Grill, where one kiss at the ticket booth will get you two for one admission.  Or enjoy live music and an extravagant Winemaker Dinner at The Pavilions at Angus Barn. The possibilities are endless!

If you’d like to venture outside of the dinner date, there are plenty of other unique themed activities for you to enjoy.  From 12 to 9 p.m. the AT&T Raleigh Winterfest Ice Rink will be open for you to skate the day away with your special someone, and free rickshaw and carriage rides are available for an extra romantic touch.  You can also find several live band performances and other great activities to enjoy.

For those who aren’t exactly feeling the Valentine’s Day sentiment, Hi5 is hosting its 5th Annual Anti-Valentine’s Day party where you can feel free “to mock, ridicule and satirize Hallmark’s make-believe holiday.”  Whether you’re celebrating the day or mocking it, there’s plenty to do on Feb. 14th in Greater Raleigh!
