- Feb. 12 – Mardi Gras: Let the Good Times Roll
- Feb. 14 – Valentine’s Day: Romantic City, Romantic Beach
New York: Spend a fortune on an exquisitely romantic restaurant or go low at a neighborhood joint that may be just as good – visit a museum, dance in the clubs or take in a show. Ask any New Yorker, they’ll tell you: “Greatest city in the world.”
- Feb. 18 – Presidents Day: Fun with History
Boston: It may look sedate, but this is the same seething city where so many wild-eyed revolutionaries got their start – enjoy a history lesson then enjoy the nightlife and top it off with a nice cup o’ chowder.
