I don’t know about you all, but I actually love Valentine’s Day. It’s so cheesy, but the older I get, the more I enjoy seeing all the pinks, reds and hearts everywhere. I think it’s sweet to have a special day to celebrate love between us — whether it’s with friends, family, or significant others.

When it comes to an official Valentine’s Day date, the hubby and I don’t do them typically for the simple fact it’s chaotic everywhere you go. We had a bad experience once when we went to a romantic restaurant…We were packed in like sardines next to other couples and paid top dollar for our meal. Since then, we try to do something for V-Day, even if it’s just cooking a meal together or just celebrating out a few days after the holiday.

When I received the info below, a bell went off. This is exactly the type of fun I would be down for!

So if you’re looking for something unique to do on Valentine’s Day, look no further than the streets of downtown Milford.
