My good friend Sara recommended the website Groupon to me. This website has one deal per day available that you can choose to purchase. As an example, today’s deal in northern VA is $48 for a wine tasting and picnic for 2 in Loudon county on Valentine’s Day. Previous deals include admission to museums, spa packages and discounted meals. On any given day you can choose to purchase this deal. It looks like this website is currently available in at least 48 cities, including San Francisco and Philadelphia. 🙂 Also, when I chose Washington, DC it then broke my options down to Northern VA, Southern MD and DC, so if you live well outside of the city, I’m sure there will be deals for you! It’s free of charge to join so there is certainly no harm in giving it a try (I just joined today). Maybe you will find a great deal! Join HERE.
