Though we are still a few weeks away from that annual celebration of hearts, and love, and all thing romantic, it’s never too early to get started thinking about where to go and what to do with that special someone. While a pleasant night at home can be the ideal for some couples (or singles) here are a few of the Valentine’s Day Events 2016 in Athens GA for the actual day (Sunday) and that weekend. You may decide on a cheesy romance movie at home anyway, but isn’t it nice to have options?
