And for lovebirds looking to really get swept up in the holiday, it’s Valentine’s Day year-round in Valentine, Arizona; Valentine, Nebraska; Valentine, Texas and Valentine, Virginia.

You could stop at Arrow, Idaho on the way to Cupid, Oklahoma. If you can’t afford Diamond, Wyoming, you could try Gold, Pennsylvania.
While all these places sound ideal for sweethearts, it’s San Diego that was previously named by Travel+Leisure as one of America’s most romantic cities. Today, soulmates will find conforming no-point 30-year fixed mortgage rates are averaging 4.25 percent, 15-year rates are near 3.75 percent and the 5-year ARM is averaging 4.25 percent.
