Celebrating love isn’t just about couples. Grab your friends, family, teammates or co-workers and celebrate all kinds of special relationships …

5. Go On A New Adventure
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to knock something fun and adventurous off your bucket list.
Whether it’s going on a mini getaway for some well-deserved me time, feeding chickadees at Wye Marsh, learning to snowboard or some other local activity, doing something you have always wanted to try will be incredibly rewarding. Not to mention it’s a great distraction for those who need it.
Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be stressful, regardless of your relationship status. So stop thinking about how much you dislike the day and find a new way to celebrate it that’s all you! There’s no reason that Barrie singles can’t have a good time too!
