From our Community: Valentine’s Day Celebrations in Pure Michigan

Love is in the air across the country this month, and Michigan is no exception. In fact, the U.S. Census Bureau News lists the Michigan cities of Romeo and Rose City as two of the most romantic-sounding places to spend Valentine’s Day.

We got some great responses earlier this week when we asked fans on our Facebook page: “How can you make Valentine’s Day with your special someone a Pure Michigan Valentine’s Day?” Here are some comments we wanted to share. Thanks to everyone who responded!
