If Godiva chocolate and a weekend stay at a resort are out of your price range, here are some ideas for a nice, budget-friendly Valentine’s Day with your date.
- Cook your own dinner with ingredients from Potomac's River Falls Seafood Market -- or pick up some of their premade crab cakes, salads, soups, along with some cheeses and wines.
- Have dinner and see a movie -- head over to Bethesda Row and grab a quick bar seat at one of the numerous restaurants lining downtown Bethesda, before heading over to Bethesda Row's Landmark Theatre.
- Speaking of Bethesda Row, check out this list of Valentine's Day restaurant and retail specials -- everything from salon deals to free accessories to great meals at some of Bethesda's finest.
- It's a sunny winter day, why not take a romantic stroll with your loved one, or maybe just a fun jaunt with your coworkers, along the Capital Crescent Trail? Maybe in the C&O Canal National Historical Park? Take a picnic while you're at it.
