Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that you either love or you hate. Sure, the air is filled with romance and sweet things to eat. But it also often comes with a lot of anticipation, planning, and obligation. However, not every Valentine’s celebration has to revolve around a stuffy dinner or unappreciated bouquet of roses.
There are lots of ways to cater this “Hallmark holiday” to your own relationship and make it mean something special to both you and the love of your life. And since February 14th falls on a Saturday this year, there are lots of options on the table. Let FunSherpa be your guide as you open your mind to a whole new way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Go to the Ballet via Limo Ride
If either you or your sweetheart has never seen a ballet before, Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to see what it’s all about. Chicago is one of the best places have a ballet and limousine experience because there are so many talented ballerinas in the city and a limo takes the hassles out of getting there. Before or after the show, take a walk around the trendy River North neighborhood to grab a bite to eat or nightcap before heading home.
Savor the Sweet Life on a Chocolate Tour
If you simply can’t part with the idea of chocolate on Valentine’s Day, then why not learn a little bit about the sweet stuff to celebrate as well? Boston Chocolate Tours offer the opportunity to learn about the process of making chocolate and return home with plenty of mouthwatering samples. You can take classes to create delicious chocolates and deserts on your own and follow the instruction of experienced chefs who love what they do. These tours last approximately 2-3 hours.

Cooking together is something that’s important to many couples, and the process can go much smoother when both of you have a deeper appreciation for culinary traditions.
