Valentine’s Day 2020 is fast approaching! And while some of you have already made your plans, booked your reservations, and signed your cards, there are those among us who are still wondering how we’ll spend this day meant for romance. Fortunately, Valentine’s Day 2020 falls on a Friday this year – which makes it easier in some ways (i.e., MAYBE the kids will let you sleep in Saturday if you stay out late??), but unfortunately, that also means that you’ll need to make your reservations early…as in now!
To help you plan your special day with your special someone, we’ve found some great Valentine’s Day 2020 events in the Richmond area that offer fun, romantic opportunities to spend some time together as a couple. And if Friday isn’t the best night for you? Don’t worry, we’ve got events for the whole weekend.
Be sure to take a look at our list below and if you know of a great Valentine’s Day 2020 event that we may have overlooked, be sure to let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
