February 2, 2011 by Sayaka
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and there are plenty of things to do in Columbus to celebrate - whether you spend it with a special someone, your dearest friends or with your family. I started to research for my own plans, and thought I'd share a few of the things that sounded unique and fun.
Valentine’s Day at White Castle Feb. 14 from 5-8 p.m. This is an annual tradition for many couples across America and I must say, it’s on my bucket list! Bring your valentine to White Castle to enjoy a juicy slider or two. Call 614-294-3753 ext. 24 for reservations.
Valentines by Candlelight Feb. 11-12 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. For a more elegant feel, take your date to the Ohio Historical Center.
