Another outdoor idea would be to take your bicycles out and ride along the waterfront. If you have access to some waterways, why not rent out a canoe and discover the sights of the surrounding city.
Even just a slow walk around one of your favorite parks or public garden areas is a relaxing and special way to spend some quality time with your valentine. You could even stop off at one of your local coffee or tea shops for a nice slice of cake and tea or coffee.
Even a trip to the zoo can be a great idea when Valentine’s Day falls in the winter months. The zoos are much quieter in the winter season and the animals will be more active opposed to summer where many animals hide in shaded areas.

If it happens to be a rainy and wet day, consider taking a drive along the countryside, you may find some small and inexpensive cozy restaurants along the way to stop off and have a light meal. If you are the types that are interested in antique stores or museums, spend the day browsing at your leisure.
Ice skating is another inexpensive option for a really fun day out, the cold temperatures may be invigorating and holding hands and acting like children can really reignite the spark of romance.
