Looking for a thoughtful way to celebrate the upcoming Valentine’s Day? Since Historic Foley is home to many romantic stops amid flower-lined streets, we invite you to enjoy time together by slowing down and enjoying our Main Street Alabama-designated community.
Weather dependent, you can walk the Wilbourne Antique Rose Trail and see what’s blooming. February is also a great time to catch the beautiful camellia blooms that can last into early spring.
Two of Foley’s beautiful storefronts are McKenzie Street Florist and Stemz Flowers. Treat yourself or your sweetheart to a dozen long-stemmed roses, a live plant, or a dainty corsage. (It’s a good idea to order your flowers up to a month ahead of time, especially for holidays like this one.)
Stop by the Copper Kettle TeaBar and try their special Love Potion and Love Tea, featuring compressed tea hearts. They will be hosting a tea lunch on Valentine’s Day afternoon, featuring special dishes and a dessert, and the following evening, on February 15, their Fun Friday will be a ticketed event with chocolate fondue.
Another tasty Valentine’s Day option is The Gift Horse Restaurant and Antique Center. Their menu varies daily, and the setting is a hit for all ages.
Who doesn’t love jewelry? If you’re looking for a tangible gift to show your love, browse the displays at Manning Jewelry. They’re locally owned and have been a mainstay of Foley for more than 60 years. Also check out Kay Jewelers at the Tanger Outlets. Prefer the metaphorical kind of sparkle, or are you seeking an experience rather than material goods? Catch a showing of Jack of Diamonds at the South Baldwin Community Theatre.
The Coastal Alabama Farmers and Fishermens Market is hosting their Arts at the Market on February 14, featuring live music as well as 30 artists. Prefer to create something yourself? Splurge on some tools of the trade from Jan’s Art Studio and enjoy a night in, or get crafty with a little help from Hobby Lobby.
