We know it's not yet Christmas, but if you want to get ahead of the game, now is the time to plan your Valentine's Day weekend in Sacramento. Feb. 14 is a Friday in 2020, and President's Day is the following Monday, so don't miss out, and take advantage of the long weekend.

Valentine's Day is often a special time for couples, and whether you want to shop for candies at places like Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates, enjoy wine tasting at some of the many regional wineries, or just relax and enjoy unplugging at a place like the Amber House Inn bed and breakfast or Asha Urban Baths, Sacramento has you covered. If you're planning to spend time with the whole family, Valentine's Day weekend is the perfect excuse to take a mini vacation before Spring Break, take the kids to the Sacramento Zoo, Fairytale Town, or to the Sacramento Children's Museum.

As America's Farm-to-Fork Capital, we can promise you that Sacramento has more options for excellent, fresh food than you'll find anywhere else, and even though we have so many, it's still a good idea to book reservations at your favorite restaurant well in advance. Now, actually, would be a good time.
