For Valentine’s Day 2024, we made a map of local places where our readers have made memories. We asked for your help compiling everything from proposals to making friends. You did not disappoint.

Explore these local love stories by clicking on the hearts, but there’s just a few love stories that we just had to share:

  • The Kentucky Theatre | “My husband and I went here for our first date. Some friends happened to be seeing the same movie and sat several rows back, lightly heckling us. They took a picture of the back of our heads that we now cherish. Two years later, he proposed outside of the theater using the marquee. Easiest and best decision I’ve ever made.” — Audra S.
  • The Mad Potter | “Every year my husband & I celebrate Valentine’s Day at this local pottery painting shop. It’s so cool to have items painted personally by us all around our home celebrating our love for each other.” — Anonymous reader
  • Talon Winery & Vineyards | “We matched on Hinge, but had met 2 years before through a mutual friend while we were both dating other people. I agreed to a first date, but told him not to make it boring (dinner, etc.). He responded, ‘How about my friends wedding Friday then Saturday and Sunday on the lake?’ I agreed, he sent me a list of what to pack for the weekend, then stole me away for a 3 day ‘first date,’ haha. Needless to say it went well and the rest is history!” — Audrey B.
  • Kroger Field | “Well, we met in a town west on 64, but Kroger Field (aka Commonwealth Stadium) will always hold a special place for us as that’s where he surprised me with a proposal at halftime of the Florida game in 2023! We love it so much we are getting married here too!” — Erin W.

Now we’re really feeling the love.
