Let’s face it - Valentine’s Day and broke college students are not the best mix. Here are some of the best ways to spend your Valentine’s Day around Williamsburg, whether with your significant other, friends (Galentine’s Day, anyone?), or to pamper yourself!
If You Have $30
For only $12 per person (plus skate rentals), you can head to the ice rink in CW and spend the night skating (or falling!) under the lights. Buy a hot chocolate from the bookstore to warm up for an extra fun night!
If You Have $20
For $20, there are plenty of places you can get a nice meal around Williamsburg. Stop by the Cheese Shop, Lokal, or Oishi for a fun and delicious dinner.
If You Have $10
If you have $10, one way to go is with a classic coffee date. Grab your favorite Aromas drink and go for a nice walk around CW for a low-key, but memorable, Valentine’s Day.
If You Have Flex
If by some miracle you have managed to conserve your Flex into the third week of the semester, you have the opportunity for a nice meal with friends at Cosi or QDoba. Pro tip: the Student XChange has all your candy and ice cream needs if you’re looking for gifts for that special someone.
If You Don’t Want to Spend Anything
Valentine’s Day puts a lot of pressure on buying gifts and going on expensive dates, but if that’s not your thing, spend the night in! Watch a movie, do some face masks, and just let yourself relax - Valentine’s Day is about spending time with the people who are important to you, not presents and candy. (But be sure to treat yourself to some discounted chocolate on February 15th regardless!)
