Valentine’s Day is not just about flowers and chocolates. It’s about spending time with someone you care about. This year for 2019, trade your overpriced roses for a day full of surprises for your significant other. Does your girlfriend or boyfriend enjoy music? Take them to the Martin guitar factory tour to enrich in the making of the legendary guitars. Are they more of the outdoorsy and athletic type? Surprise them and take them to Mt. Tammany for a breathtaking view that both of you can share. No matter what your significant other likes, try something new this Valentine’s Day and explore the beautiful and fun state of Pennsylvania.

Are the movies, mini golfing and bowling getting old? Here are 10 unique places to take your significant other or even your best friend for a great time.

1. Mt. Tammany- Kittatinnies Region, Hardwick Township

Cost: Free

If you are feeling adventurous and love the outdoors, Mt. Tammany may be for you. Right on the border of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the trail will take you to numerous cliffs for a beautiful view. You may even see eagles soaring above the Delaware River. The trail is 3.5 miles long and can be steep at some points. A tip for anyone that wants to take this journey is to go up red dot trail and down the blue. If you have never hiked before I suggest going up and down the blue trail, but you will not get the best views. Along with this trail is a small waterfall along the Dunnfield Creek. You will pass this if you do the whole loop.


2. The Cook and His Books- 20 Donaldson Street, Doylestown, PA 18901

Cost: Get the Groupon and it will only cost $65 for both of you ($32.50 each)

A little less than an hour from Cabrini is chef Michael Kanter. He will teach you how to plan and organize meals while receiving his insights and opinions about food. The Groupon is for a four-course cooking class. This class is around three hours long and by the end of it, you and your partner/friend will be full. Feel free to adventure Doylestown while you are there. It is a great area to walk around and explore the town. Want to add a quick shopping spree? Go to Something Else for women’s clothes which is only a short walk from the cooking class.


3. Port Providence paddle- 264 Canal St, Phoenixville, PA 19460
Cost: Kayaks – $39/Day

Kayak down the Schuylkill River and enjoy the nature and the view at Port Providence paddle. Before kayaking have breakfast at Nudy’s Bridge Street Café and enjoy the amazing menu they have to offer. Only 20 minutes from Cabrini.


4. Night Lights- Maple Grove Raceway, Mohnton
Costs: Groupon for two people $50 or $25 per person

Want a sparkling night you will remember? Go to the Night Light sky lantern festival. Relax by the fire and roast your marshmallows under the beautiful open sky.

5. Balloon Festival- New Garden Airport
Cost: $15 per ticket

Looking for something out of the ordinary? The Balloon Festival in Chester County is only 35 minutes from Cabrini. Relax and listen to live music as you walk around to different vendors selling food, drinks, and much more. For those that are 21 or older the Victory Beer Garden offers different beers to try and yard games such as KanJam and Cornhole. As you watch in amaze as the balloons all go into the sky you can also stay for the fireworks.


6. Martin Guitar Factory Tour-265-499, W Beil Ave, Nazareth, PA
Cost: Free

Do you or your significant other play or enjoy music? The Martin Guitar Tour is completely free and will show how guitars are made. Stop by the 1833 shop to get a cool T-shirts before you head home. Hungry after the tour? Potts’ Doggies shop has the hot dog for you. People  ages 21 and up can check out Birthright Brewing Company for a quick drink, which is only a four minute drive from the guitar tour.

7. Scent and Sip- 323 W Main St, Lansdale, PA 19446-2024
Cost: Varies

In the town of Lansdale is Scent and Sip where can bring your girlfriend to make candles, artlets, fragrance oil, reed diffusers, body lotion, bath gel, cleansing conditioner, beard oil, bubble bath, lotion, sugar scrub and more. Turn it into the perfect girl’s night and bring some wine and cheese to enjoy while you are there. It is BYOB and you can make as many things as you want. Want ice-cream after? Merrymead Farm is a well-known ice-cream place for the area only 10 minutes away. I recommend grabbing their chocolate milk while you are there and saying hi to the cows.


8. Bube’s Brewery (The Catacombs Restaurant)- 102 North Market Street, Lancaster, PA
Cost: Varies

Want to go grab some food but are tired of the same scene. Bube’s Brewery has a unique experience where you will be taken 43 feet into the stone-lined vaults of the Catacombs. Outside there is a colorful drinking garden where you could also enjoy a meal. I do advise the dinner in the catacombs will be on the high side because it is upscale. Looking for a scare? Don’t worry Bube’s Brewery also has a ghost tour. Only $10 per person. Bube’s also has their own escape room for $25 a person. For the 21 and up group you could go on the brewery tour and taste some of Bube’s finest drinks.

10. Bury the Hatchet- 1020 W 8th Ave, King of Prussia, PA 19406
