Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year and that means the pressure is on.  With the ultimate day for romance falling on a Friday night you can’t just let it slip by with a small box of chocolates or a simple bouquet of flowers like you might do if it were on a busy workday.  We have some ideas that will make celebrating Valentine’s Day in Fort Wayne special and easy to plan.

A romantic getaway Why worry about all of the planning and preparation when you can leave it to the experts?  Consider planning a weekend getaway to the LaSalle Bed and Breakfast.  They’ll provide you with everything from roses in your room to massages and breakfast in bed.  Their beautiful rooms immediately invoke a sense of romance and classic sophistication.   Spend the day curled up by the fire with a great book or venture out into downtown for coffee, the Fort Wayne Farmers Market, and dinner out on the town.  Whether you spend your entire visit locked away in your room or taking in Downtown Fort Wayne, you’re sure to find romance.   Satek made for a perfect date
