The answer is...drum roll please...experience. Maybe it's just me, but I'd prefer a romantic day with the hubby over a heart-shaped necklace I'll never wear any day (apologies to fans of heart-shaped jewelry).

Thankfully, Colorado has plenty of experiences to offer. In fact, a new study from WalletHub has ranked Denver as the 14th best city to spend Valentine's Day in.

In actuality, Denver has a high availability of romantic activities, plenty of flower and chocolate sources, and a decent amount of options for couples on a budget.

This is pretty accurate if you ask me. For $59, you can embark on a wine, cheese, and dessert tour in Colorado's capital. If that's too pricey for you (no judgment from me), there are other places you can go  — WalletHub also listed Aurora and Colorado Springs as nice, affordable places to spend the holiday.
