Unique Ways to Celebrate Valentine's Day

BY: Carolyn Alterio | Jan 24, 2019

When you think of Valentine’s Day gifts, flowers, chocolate, and a romantic dinner out probably come to mind. And while there’s nothing wrong with these hallmarks of Valentine’s Day gifting, sometimes it’s good to shake things up—or even make it a celebration for the entire family. That’s where Groupon Coupons comes in. We’ve put together a list of unique ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day for an experience you and your loved ones won’t soon forget.


Make Valentine’s Day a family affair with a trip to SeaWorld Orlando! Score discounts such as 20% off single-day tickets when you purchase at least three days in advance or save $400 when you bundle your hotel and ticket together. As for what to do once you’re there, the possibilities are endless. Test your mettle with rides and coasters—including Mako, Orlando’s tallest, fastest, and longest coaster. There are also animal shows for stunning displays of aquatic feats, along with dolphin encounters, where you’ll get to pet and feed the playful mammals. For a truly unique dining experience, head to Shark’s Underwater Grill to dine on sashimi and lobster bisque while awe-inspiring fish swim by.


Book a last-minute trip to Sandals Resorts for a Valentine’s Day weekend that’s equally romantic and stress-free. It’s all-inclusive, meaning you won’t be reaching for your wallet when ordering drinks on the beach. And the bevy of activities will keep you entertained should you ever tire of relaxing poolside (if that’s a thing?). Choose from white-sand-beach locations such as Nassau, Jamaica, and Barbados: all come equipped with 5-Star Global Gourmet Dining restaurants and unlimited land and water sports. Bonus: if you book now, you’ll get up to 65% off and receive a $1,000 instant credit.


Grab your passports and book a last-minute trip across the world. While Paris is an obvious choice (the cuisine alone!), you can make your dollar stretch further with winter airfare sales to England, Iceland, and beyond. Be sure to pick up a guide book for tips on where to eat, stay, and play, and download the Babbel app to brush up on the language.  



And if you really want to spread the love this Valentine’s Day, consider volunteering at your local animal shelter or food pantry. You’ll get a warm feeling that’s free of charge. Grab your loved one or the entire family for a rewarding experience you’ll want to put on repeat.
