Affordable Dates to Impress Your Sweetheart This Valentine’s Day

February 13, 2018

It’s easier than ever to find incredible experiences close to your ROSS affordable apartment!

Last Valentine’s Day, Americans spent an average of $147 per person ($196 for men!). If that strikes you as a lot, this guide to affordable Valentine’s dates is for you. No matter which of ROSS’ affordable apartments you live in, there’s a night to remember waiting for you…


In Richmond

One of the most romantic locations in Richmond has to be The Byrd Theatre. It was built in the late twenties, at the height of an era full of life and love and, most importantly, fun! Head into the city from your affordable apartment and see one of two movies this Valentine’s Day.

Raising Arizona

This classic romantic comedy was filmed in 1987, staring Nicolas Cage and Holly Hunter. See the trailer here.

All the Money in the World

This movie is a total thriller. More drama than horror, it will definitely add some excitement to the evening. See the trailer here.

Top off the night at any of the well-reviewed restaurants recommended by Richmond Magazine. You’re sure to find one near your affordable apartment.


In Arlington

In this neighborhood, it’s hard to find something to do that doesn’t involve a monument. Not very romantic. Instead, we recommend an amazing, not-too-expensive destination that’s just across the river from your Grandview affordable apartment: ARTECHOUSE.

ARTECHOUSE is “an innovative art space and creative powerhouse dedicated to…artists who are forerunners of the new age in arts and technology.” And now through March 4, it’s showcasing “Parallel Universe”, an installation by Turkish art studio, Ouchhh, that’s reminiscent of Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Mirrors”. Walking through the exhibit is a profound experience (that just happens to involve selfies) and it’s just $15 a person. But hurry! Tickets are already nearly sold out. When you’re done viewing the art, check out any one of these amazing restaurants.


In Hyattsville

For those living in an affordable apartment at the Overlook Apartments in Hyattsville, we simply recommend Bump ‘n Grind. This spot is the total package for an affordable Valentine’s Day date. Good coffee, good music and good food (all for a good price!).


In Alexandria

For a high-brow, low-cost evening, you can visit the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria. Just five minutes away from ROSS’ Heritage at Old Town affordable apartments, this art gallery has ongoing exhibits and events. We recommend “Embrace”, a photography exhibit opening on February 13 that focuses on human contact. Both inspired and romantic, it’s the perfect show for the occasion.

Whichever affordable apartment by ROSS you chose, you can make this Valentine’s Day one your partner will never forget with any one of these great ideas. Interested in another one of ROSS’ properties? Take a tour today and find out more.
