Top 5 Cheap Things to Do For Valentine’s Day

Flowers, chocolates, oversized teddy bears, champagne and candlelit dinners can describe a typical Valentine’s Day for many people. This year, shake it up with a few unconventional ideas to share with your significant other (or maybe just try by yourself). Without further ado, here are five creative ideas for Valentine’s Day:

  1. Going for a picnic in a nearby park not only lets you soak up the essential Vitamin D, but also allows you to enjoy a romantic dinner in the great open outdoors.
  2. Another great way to spend Valentine’s Day is hiking. Petit Jean Mountain and Pinnacle Mountain are great places to start out hiking if you’re a beginner.
  3. A laid-back Valentine’s calls for a movie – and what better way to watch a movie than in a makeshift drive-in under the stars? Make sure your laptop is nice and charged, then move outside to watch a movie with a warm mug of hot chocolate or coffee outside on a blanket under the night sky.
  4. Commemorate this Valentine’s by painting together. Have a contest to see who can do the most realistic painting of Donald Trump and his hair or just keep it simple and paint a heart. Whichever you do, Branch Out in downtown Conway is a great place to paint. You can also paint for free at Art After Dark, a Student Activities Board event on Feb. 11 in the Student Center.
  5. Get in touch with your inner (or outer) geek and plan a date just reading comic books together and comparing and arguing over superheroes. A great place to do this The Bat Cave, a comic book store also located in downtown Conway.

While Valentine’s Day can be stressful and hard to plan for, hopefully these inventive ideas will help make your day a little more fun (and make the wait for the discounted chocolate a little shorter).
