Valentine’s Day in Downtown Carleton Place

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! What are you doing with that special someone in your life that day?

Do you go out for a romantic dinner? Do you stop for a drink and a late night munchies to cap your evening off? Will you bring your loved one flowers, chocolates or another heartfelt gift?

However you plan to spend the day, Downtown Carleton Place can help. There is a variety of great dining options for your special evening – from pub fare to fine dining – or the food (and drink) stores that can help you get things just right for your Valentine.

Is it flowers or sweets that make your valentine happy? Maybe a special day at the spa, yoga together, or a gift certificate for his/her favourite store.

There’s lots of great gift shopping downtown and all the shops can help you get ready for the big night.

Come downtown, check out our list below, or visit the members section of our website to explore your options for dining, shopping and more to plan that perfect Valentine’s Day.

Also, make sure to check out our “Share the Love in Downtown Valentine’s Day Contest” on our Facebook page and on our Instagram and you could win up to $100 in BIA Bucks to treat your Valentine.
