1.) See a Shakespeare play on the big screen. This year the Broadway version of “Romeo and Juliet” will be going live to theaters around the globe thanks to Fathom Events. This could be a fun way to spend the evening without having to get all dressed up. Tickets start at $18.

2.) Going on a harbor cruise. For those who don’t get seasick, this could be a wonderful way to spend a few hours on the open water. Several companies like Hornblower and Newport Landing have special cruises for Valentine’s Day. This allows for some romantic views of the water while relaxing music plays in the background. Cruises range from $24 on Living Social to $63 per person.

3.) For the more energetic couple, the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is hosting a dinner, art and dancing event. It starts off with a champagne reception, followed by a tour of the galleries and a 3-course meal. The meal is comprised of a variety of entrée options, salad and an aphrodisiac dessert. The evening includes Gregorio Luke’s Art of Love show and plenty of dancing with that special someone. Tickets are $75 per person on the MOLAA website or $37.50 per person on
