This year’s Valentine’s Day Week in the Laurel Highlands looks quite different than last year; in fact, this holiday is the final major holiday that we were able to celebrate pre-pandemic in 2020. If that doesn’t make your mind bend a little bit… well, you’ve adjusted better than I have!

We have very good news: it’s time to snuggle up with your sweetheart and enjoy delicious local food, virtual concerts and creative studios, and unique art exhibits. Romance is certainly in the air in Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands!
