We here at FrostburgFirst know that Valentine’s Day can bring up mixed emotions in a lot of people. Whether you are taken, single, or wholeheartedly dedicated to your furry companion, Frostburg offers something for everyone this February 14th! It’s time to let this holiday be whatever you need it to be for you. There are a plethora of shops, restaurants, cafes, and events with your name on it, so don’t let the day go to waste! Saint Valentine wanted people to love not just others, but themselves!

Frostburg and its local businesses are dedicated to ensuring that you have all the options you need during the holiday of love! Gifts, food, and music galore! Our local eateries like The Toasted Goat or Clatter Cafe, offer good eats, good drinks, and a fun atmosphere. Not to mention Clatter Cafe provides live music for you and your partner to enjoy. Enough about partners, back to the furry friends that we would do anything and everything for. Pet Wants Mountain Maryland knows how much you care about your fur babies, and to show that, they’re giving you the chance to get free pet food for a year! For more info about how to enter and get the chance to win, check out their website or Facebook page.

Would you rather spend the day with your gal pals? No need to explain, sisters before misters all the way! Madison Paige Boutique understands this sentiment, so go have fun with your friends at their Galentine’s Day Fashion Show! Don’t pass up the chance to try on new clothes, strut your stuff, and hype up your friends! If your love language is more gift giving than words of affirmation, make sure to check out our local shops. Get your partner or friends a beautiful truffle box from McFarland Candies, or some lovely Valentine’s Day themed decorations from Muddy Creek Crafts. You can also have a treat yourself day! Cauldron Vintage offers beautiful and affordable clothing for people with all different styles, and Ladybug Vintage can provide you with everything from candles to jewelry to decorations at their one stop shop. If you would rather just spend the day curled up with a hot beverage and a good book, support an independent bookstore by picking up some titles at Main Street Books!

At this point you might be saying to yourself; what if I’m looking to spend a little less money this time around? No need to worry! There are plenty of free options in Frostburg as well. For example, take your partner or pet on a walk through our lovely local trails. The Great Allegheny Passage provides miles and miles of beautiful views, solitude, and history. If you like taking pictures, there’s a eye-catching mural on Main Street next to Main Street Books that you can stop to admire and photograph.

Whatever you end up doing, take a selfie on your expedition and tag the business and FrostburgFirst on Facebook or Instagram! Let your friends know what this town means to you and all that it has to offer. Frostburg makes sure all your needs and wants are met this Valentine’s Day, not to mention you can help support local businesses in the process. What more could you ask for? Love nurtured in a mountain town, is love that lasts forever.
