Happy Valentine's Day!
This may be the shortest month, but we certainly are not short on things to do! Shop local, attend a dance, see a concert, fall in love. And if you want to fall in love with your dream house, I am here to help you!
Cupid on the Square
Shopping for your Valentine doesn't have to be a stressful event. It can be as simple and relaxing as wandering the shops along a beautiful town square. Georgetown square has a little bit of something for everyone. For the nostalgic, there are several antique shops. If your Valentine needs to relax and be pampered, there is Novita Spa. For the gourmand, make a reservation at one of the great eateries on and around the square. Theater fan? Check the schedule at The Palace Theater for some home town theater action. Wine enthusiasts would enjoy a flight from a selection of wine tasting rooms. And for those extra spicy Valentines, pop into Mikey Vee's for some super-hot sauces! Even for kids (and kids at heart), there is All Things Kids toy store! Avoid the mall, shop local, and save your sanity all at once.
