Triangle Area Activities & Restaurants for Valentines Day

by AH for Masha Halpern

While Valentines Day has historically been celebrated as a day of romance since the 14th century, it’s modern spin has come to incorporate all types of love.

Whether you’re lucky in romantic love, bursting with rich friendships, or want to indulge in some self-love, spend the week of Valentine’s celebrating the power of love. Here are some of the Triangle area offerings that will put a little love in your heart.

The Morehead Planetarium in Chapel Hill’s show Carolina Skies offer several showings of a special Valentines edition and even an Anti-Valentine edition. Show dates & times are located on their website.

Check out this list of Valentine themed events in Durham. Offerings include chocolate tasting, cooking classes, speed-dating, Senior Luncheon, The Office Valentine Episodes Trivia night, arts & crafts classes, and much more!


Keep celebrating all week long with this list of Valentines activities for anyone - with or without a date!

The Open Table website has put together a Valentine’s Dinner list that includes 90 restaurants in Durham, Chapel Hill & Raleigh. Open Table even allows you to make reservations with just a click from their website or app.

And let’s not forget your home...if you don’t love your home, maybe it’s time for a new one. Realtors are matchmakers - introducing people to homes until they fall in love with one.
