There is no shortage of things to do around Charlotte for Valentine’s Day, 2020, but let’s face it. They can be expensive. You can feel pressured to spend a lot of money to prove your love. But a famous person (or maybe four famous people) once said “Money can’t buy me love.”
Also, Valentine’s Day can be a bummer for people without a romantic partner.
So, here’s a list of some outside-the-box things to do in Charlotte for Valentine’s Day 2020. Some are best to do with a date and some are designed for those without a date. There are even some events for people who want to meet a new partner or forget an old one.
We’re also including family-friendly events, Valentine’s markets, Galentine’s Day events and even Anti-Valentine’s Day parties, to cover all the bases.
These events all take place between Friday, February 7th, through Sunday, February 16th. That gives you the weekend before and after Valentine’s Day to find the perfect way to celebrate, and a chance to shop for gifts at Valentine’s markets.
