Who doesn't appreciate a Valentine's day well spent? But we all feel the stress to plan the day, don't we? Especially during the pandemic, it is hard to plan a special date for the Valentine's day as our options are rather limited. The movie- dinner date norm might not be considered as safe by many. But the good thing about Dallas is that there are plenty of things to do that are low risk and so fun.
