A Valentine’s Day at home can be relaxing, but it also comes with its own set of challenges. Cooking can become a chore, and someone always gets stuck with the dirty dishes.
This year, get out of the house and let someone else do the work for you. Our area is full of places to spend a night or full day with your loved one.
4 Valentine’s Weekend ideas:
HHWC’s ValenWines Weekend
Nine wineries throughout the area have joined forces for two weekends full of wine and chocolate pairings. Each vineyard offers hand-selected wines paired perfectly with chocolates from around the world. Your ticket gets you access to tastings at the wineries, discounts on bottles and a souvenir glass.
Greystone Public House
Greystone is quickly becoming a go-to spot to spend a special evening over a great meal and drinks. Craft cocktails and an extensive wine list highlight the drinks menu and pair perfectly with innovative, refreshing dishes.
To add to their menu, they are rolling out special Valentine’s Day menu full of specials you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

Make your own brewery tour
If wine isn’t your bag, then head out on your personalized brewery trail. You can make a perfect day out of exploring a new lineup of breweries, or by playing it safe with your favorites.
Towns like Hanover, York, and Lancaster offer a one-stop spot to hit a variety of quality breweries and beer bars with minimal driving. Don’t forget the growlers to bring your favorite beer home to share and wind down the night.
Whether you’re staying close to home or venturing out a bit further, be sure to reference the SaraBozich.com Booze Trail Map to chart out the best plan of attack.
Dine at your favorite spot
It’s your go-to spot when heading out for dinner and takes all of the hassles out of finding a new restaurant. It could be the place where you had your first date or the bar that has become like a second home. No matter what, it’s yours, and place you both can agree on.
Heading to your favorite spot affords you to do Valentine’s Day on your terms with as little stress as possible. Wine, flowers, chocolate and your spot at the bar are all you need.
