Discover Valentine’s Day Fun in Balt-“Amor”!
Ah, Valentine’s Day. It stirs the heart in so many ways and celebrates love in bloom. Are you in the passionate throes of new love? Perhaps you’re in a warm and tender long-term relationship that sees new romantic life every Valentine’s Day. Or maybe you’re happily single or just think Cupid’s day is a fake holiday invented by corporations to make money. Whatever your situation, Baltimore offers a host of fun activities for amor!
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples, though – grab your friends, family, co-workers, or anyone you share a bond with and try something new. Take your date for a wild artistic experience at the Maryland Zoo. Design a lovely terrarium or savor true “hoppy-ness” at a brewery. Or just commiserate about the hassles of online dating with other singles – while enjoying a lively cabaret show, of course.
