Time well spent with our loved ones encompasses a lot of things, but for many people, the location is a crucial part of making it special.
Last week, we asked our readers where they like to spend quality time with their main squeeze.
For some, it’s a favorite restaurant. Others find that simple surroundings suit them just fine, like a park. Some unexpected places also found their way onto our "most romantic places in Washtenaw County" map that we’ve created from reader suggestions.
"Low-lit, with a tea-light candle on each table, this restaurant creates an intimate atmosphere with a flair," she said of the restaurant.
"Their banana Nutella crepe complete with whipped creme, ice cream and chocolate sauce is delightfully sinful -- even more so when shared! This place is not-to-be-missed for a romantic evening on the town!"
For a historical and romantic setting, reader Wendy Mead suggested the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. The museum features a room of Roman murals replicated years ago by a famous Italian artist. The paintings are those of a villa near Pompeii known as the Villa of Mysteries.
"Whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not, it is worth spending a few minutes at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology to ponder the mystery of love in this amazing room," Mead wrote on her blog.
