What to Do:
There are plenty of cost-efficient places you can go and activities you can do without causing a heavy amount of environmental disturbance. A few ideas:
- Single? Throw a Valentine’s day party in your own backyard, complete with a movie screening and fun activities, such as taking the Love Languages Test or Jumbo Jenga.
- Explore a national park, see the sand dunes, or go hiking (carpool to these destinations!)
- Visit old grounds with a loved one and reminisce about each shared memory!
