A Look at Local Ideas for Valentine's Day!

Valentine’s Day is a great day to let that special someone know just how much you care. Whether you’re coming up on your first V-Day together, or you’ve lost track of how many heart-shaped boxes you’ve exchanged, don’t stop with just a card and candy! There are plenty of ways to spend some quality time with your love and celebrate the day.

A Bite To Eat

Looking to grab a bite with your honey on this special day? Starter’s Sports Bar & Grill in downtown Williamson will be offering a Valentine’s Day special with three different entrée options: prime rib, seared scallops, and bourbon glazed salmon. Dinner will be offered from noon to 9, and while they’re accepting reservations, a reservation is not required.

You’ll also find lunch and dinner specials at King’s Korner Restaurant, The Steakhouse, and The Corner Café!

If you prefer staying in, why not cook a meal together at home? If you’re looking for a tasty new recipe, the Spicy Black Bean Burrito recipe recently shared by Williamson Forward Local Coordinator Chris Dotson would be great. Bonus: it’s meatless, and super healthy!


If you and your significant other love all things spooky and wait all year round for Halloween, the Old Hospital On College Hill is definitely the perfect spot for a Valentine’s Day date night. They’ll be offering the Bloody Valentine’s Dinner and Flashlight Tour from February 12 until Valentine’s Day. The tour will include dinner from a local restaurant, and a 30 minute flashlight tour of some of the hospital’s paranormal hot-spots. You must buy your ticket in advance.

Maybe the thought of the old hospital gives you goosebumps-- we don’t blame you!-- maybe you just want to stay in this year. Either way, there’s more to do than just put on a movie! Why not plan a two-person paint and sip at home? Throw on some Bob Ross, or find a tutorial on Pinterest and spend some time creating something beautiful while enjoying snacks at home!

Shopping Ideas

Last minute shopper? Stop in Melisa's Baskets Galore in Williamson for unique Valentine’s Day gifts and candy that your sweetheart is sure to love! You can also take a look at the Tug Valley Chamber of Commerce, aka The Coal House, for candy bouquets and gifts with a local flair. The South Side Mall has you covered if you need something from Bath & Body Works, or if your Valentine prefers clothes, stop in one of the clothing stores at the mall to shop.

If you’re looking to give the gift of health, a gift certificate to Downtown Yoga or City Gym, both located in Williamson, would be perfect ideas!

We hope you make this Valentine’s Day one to remember!
