Alternatives to Valentine's Day Near Your Atlantic Builders Home

Posted: February, 1, 2024 | Categories: Atlantic Builders | Prince William County | Spotsylvania | Stafford County

Valentine’s Day: A day that celebrates romantic love and the couples who enjoy it.


But that’s not for everyone.


Some people prefer to spend time with a group of friends or even by themselves, but they still want to celebrate.


For those people, here are three alternatives to Valentine’s Day that will get you celebrating in or near your new Atlantic Builders home.


Galentine’s Day

Galentine’s Day was created in season 2, episode 16 of the hit TV show Parks & Recreation. It’s a new-ish holiday that takes place on February 13, where boyfriends and husbands stay at home and all the gals get together to enjoy a day of celebrating with friends. Brunch is key to Galentine’s Day, as are gifts and affirmations to make everyone feel special.


If you lived in a new Atlantic Builders home in Springhaven in Fredericksburg, celebrating Galentine’s Day would be easy! With so many delicious restaurants minutes away, the choices for your brunch-stravaganza are almost endless. You could head to the Cinnabon at Spotsylvania Town Centre for a calorie-filled brunch and then walk some of those calories off as you enjoy retail therapy together. Or, if you want a sit-down brunch, we recommend the all-day breakfast at the Mason Dixon Café. Nothing beats a massive stack of buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup and cardamom honey butter.


And you wouldn’t need to worry about the guys: They’ll be enjoying their time in Springhaven in your beautifully distinctive, attached duet home with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a 2-car garage, and (if you chose the option) a 4th bedroom and another full bath on the lower level. They also can take the kids to Springhaven’s playground, garden, or just a nice walk through the community. It’s a win-win holiday for everyone!


Palentine’s Day

Building off the success of Galentine’s Day, Palentine’s Day extends the holiday to your entire friend group. Also on February 13, Palentine’s Day is a celebration of true friendship, of the families we form with those we are close to, and of the communities we build around us. What do you do on Palentine’s Day? Why, anything your group of friends likes to do! There are no restrictions and no rules, so long as you are championing the bonds that bring you together.


Living in a single-family home in Overlook in the Shenandoah Valley puts you in a brilliant location to celebrate Palentine’s Day. Venturing forth from your new home in Stuarts Draft, head to Stuarts Draft Antique Mall, travel through time together, and maybe find nice curious for your home! Or, if you want a unique memory, rent a private igloo for your group at Stable Craft Brewing. They’re heated, come with a private server and food & beverage credit, and are a great way to celebrate another year of friendship.


Or, invite everyone over to your spacious home in Overlook. The spectacular kitchens and great rooms in the new homes here are perfect for entertaining. Plan a theme party, offer wines from the area’s many vineyards, or just have a quiet night with your pals and watch a movie. And with the new homes here having 2–4 bedrooms, a guest or few can always comfortably spend the night if the Palentine’s Day celebrations go well into the night!


National Love Your Pet Day

A few days after Valentine’s Day on February 20, it’s time to share the love with your feathery, scaley, or furry friend. National Love Your Pet Day is exactly what it sounds like: showing extra affection for your adopted children from other species. Be it with presents, cuddle time, treats, or all of the above, spending a little more time with your pets will make everyone in the family happier.


If you lived in a new Atlantic Builders home in Brandermill at Fawn Lake in Spotsylvania, you wouldn’t even need to leave your home to make your pets feel like the star of the show. Your home sits on a 1/3–1/2-acre homesite which gives you a lot of yard for outdoor zoomies, while many spacious home designs offer enough room and routes for indoor zoomies.


And since Fawn Lake is a luxury, lakeside, golf course community, you’ll have many resort-quality amenities the whole family can enjoy together. Explore around the 288-acre lake along 7 miles of shoreline. Stroll the many trails throughout the community. And let your dogs run free at the fenced-in Fawn Lake Dog Park for the perfect end to a day all about them.
