Unexpectedly romantic Baltimore( Baltimore Sun / February 11, 2014 )
It's very "in" right now to be anti-Valentine's Day. And while I, she who hates flowers, chocolates, and most types of jewelry, agree with that movement, I'm also going to admit that deep down in my jaded little heart -- I really love love.
Yes, Feb. 14 is a commercialized scheme, a contrived and forced declaration of sentiments. But, like me, you're still waiting and hoping and wishing for a little something. Whether that's a little love note purchased at Target or a full night of dinner and wine, we all want some acknowledgment that hey, that girl or guy loves me.
Admit it, Baltimore, you sooo do. And yet you don't want to fall victim to the same ol' tired and traditional traps the holiday can bring; you find yourself stuck looking for something original to do.
So remember where you live. While Charm City doesn't (ever) make the list of "Most Romantic Cities," it does rank high for quirky little gems. Bonus? Most won't cost you much, if any, money.
If you must, spend the cash at a restaurant or bar but only after you surprise your sweetheart with one of these Baltimore love spots. --By Meekah Hopkins
