We’ve all been there. You’re still paying for Christmas and now Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, leaving you with little funds for a small gift, let alone a fancy dinner. That’s alright, you don’t need a lot of loot to show a lot of love.

Break away from the traditional Valentine’s Day and create your own experience. Use the Internet to look up interesting, lovely attractions in your area. You can find some local “treasure hunts” here.

Map out your route, then go share the experience with your loved one and recite the mushy poem you found online at the end. Your date, and your bank account, will love it!
