The holiday of love is just around the corner and if you are looking for the perfect way to spend Valentine's Day, we have some ideas to help you celebrate locally.

Americans spend an average of $196.31 on Valentine’s Day, according to the National Retail Federation, which says that 2020 is expected to be a record-breaking year.

“Spending is expected to total $27.4 billion, up 32 percent from last year’s record $20.7 billion,” the NRF’s website states, looks like America is falling in love.
