WalletHub analyst, Cassandra Happe says, “Fortunately, the best cities for Valentine’s Day offer a wide variety of affordable date activities, food options and places to buy gifts, so you can show that you care without breaking the bank. It’s never a good idea to go into debt just to enjoy a holiday or give a gift.”
Atlanta ranked sixth overall for the ‘Best Places to go on Valentine’s Day.’ It scored a total 70.83 out of 100, coming in just behind Las Vegas.
The Number one best city to go on Valentine’s Day is San Fransisco, CA.
