As the Beatles put it, all you need is love! However, if you want to do something special to prove it to your special someone but don’t want to break the bank, don’t worry! There is plenty to do right here in Philly on a budget.
One date option is ice-skating at the Blue Cross River Rink in Penn’s Landing. You can enjoy lunch or dinner while enjoying the classic view of the waterfront. The rink is open from 11 AM- 11PM for Valentine’s Day. General admission is free and you can skate for only $3.00.
You know what’s better then food? Food on a truck delivered right to you! Take a stroll through Love Park then hit up a food truck for some tacos or a cheesesteak.
You and your lovebird can wander through Isaiah Zagar’s Philly Magic Gardens. Imagine a romantic date being surrounded by beautiful displays of public art in a ceramic and recycled glass maze. It’s romantic and environmental friendly!
Another fun option could be a date at Dave and Buster’s located in Penn’s Landingcor. Just scrap up some spare change for a couples challenge at pinball or air hockey. You can easily impress your date by winning him or her a giant teddy bear.
If you and your bae are simple people, you could always keep it low-key by staying home together. You could have a game night, cook a meal together, build a fort, or watch a classic rom-com. You could even make it a double date and invite your friend couples over!
