There's more to Valentine's Day than a box of chocolates or a dozen roses.
Here you will find suggestions, ideas, events, places to go, the best and affordable romantic restaurants, couples spa's, and romantic getaways.
The origin of Valentines Day is riddled with myth. What we do know is that February has long been a month of romance.
Valentine, who later became St. Valentine, was a priest who sent the first "valentine" greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed "From your Valentine"
