Often times Valentine’s Day gets a bad wrap for being too commercialized… to that I say, “Get over it!” Why pass up an opportunity to make someone in your life feel special, and remind him/her of your love and support? There are all sorts of love, folks; not everything has to be romantic! Whether you’re looking for something special to do with your sweetheart, have a group of friends to catch up with, or you’re planning a special “Galentine’s Day”: Morgantown has something for you!
(If you still aren’t feeling social and can’t get on board with my “commercialism”: that’s okay, too! Netflix probably has something for you… but, seriously, are you sure you don’t want to explore Morgantown?)

Sometimes staying in or seeing a movie just isn’t enough.

This isn’t just a shameless plug for my recent piece on Escape Rooms. (It’s more of a tasteful mentioning, really.) This immersive activity could be a lot of fun for a group!
