How to celebrate Singles' Awareness Day (aka Valentine's Day)

For most people that are not in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is just another reminder of their loneliness. However, it does not have to be this way. There are many alternative activities for you to do with your friends or family on Valentine’s Day!

  • Order a heart-shaped pizza from Guiseppes and watch movies with friends!
There is nothing better than hanging out with your friends and eating as much food as you possibly can, and this is the perfect way to do it! Giuseppe's pizza delivers heart shaped pizzas on V-day, and feel free to go all out and order the fries with it. Also, don’t forget to pick up the gallon of ice cream from Giant and a good movie on Netflix!
  • Dress Up and go out to dinner with a group of friends!
There are plenty of local places that serve a variety of food, drinks, apps, anything that you want! If you want to get out of town, Philly is a good option, filled with hundreds of amazing restaurants. Don’t forget to make a reservation!
  • Get outside and go on a walk or hike
This winter has had some unseasonably warm days so far, and it’s possible that Valentine’s Day could be one of them! Make a good playlist to motivate you! If weather is permitting, take a hike to Bowman’s Tower, Goat Hill, or take the trip down to High Rocks State Park in Tinicum.
  • Skyzone
Do you like jumping on trampolines? Make the trip down to Skyzone in Levittown! A day trip would be fun, or go after 9 p.m. to glow up for the real party. Get a group of your closest friends, wear white, and go bounce around on Valentine’s Day for a fun and carefree day.
  • Schedule a Spa Day
There’s no better cure to Valentine’s Day depression than treating yourself to a relaxing spa day. Nurture Spa and Zanya Salon are both local options that provide quality spa services. Both spas provide massage, manicure, pedicure, and facial services. Additionally, Zanya provides options for blowouts and makeup. A spa day can be done by yourself, with your friends, or with your significant other. Also, if you are on a budget and don’t want to splurge on a professional spa treatment, create your own spa day at home! Take a bath, do your nails and toenails, and find a recipe online for a homemade facial!
  • Go skiing/ snowboarding!
There is a valentines day sale at Jack Frost Big Boulder, $14 lift tickets! Get a group of your friends, or your special someone, and fly down that mountain!
