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:

  • “For our first date, I taught my now-husband how to drive stick in my old jeep around the University Ridge area. He was incredibly bad at it but didn’t give up. A limo driver waiting in the parking lot drove up to us and said, ‘She must really love you if she’s willing to put up with the amount you’re stalling.’”
  • “My husband I met at Fall for Greenville and we got to know each other while sipping random beers in the beer garden on McBee Avenue. Fast forward a few years and he proposed on the bench at the top of Falls Park, where we’d often sit and people watch after walks through the park. To this day we call it our bench and take all of our out-of-town visitors to see it.”

Now we’re really feeling the love.
