Dating and finding love is a challenge. But finding a place to take either your date or your significant other that won’t break the bank? That may be even more of a struggle. Especially if you live in a large city like Charlotte where it feels like the cost of living increases daily. So which North Carolina cities are offering the best deals for Valentine’s in 2023? Our friends at BetCarolina.com conducted research to answer that question. They identified the most affordable (and most costly) cities in North Carolina for dates ahead of Valentine’s day. The 5 North Carolina cities on this list are ranked by the average cost of a dinner for two, a bottle of wine, and a taxi to safely get to and from your date.

Though I have to say all of these seem a little underestimated as far as cost. The bottle of wine is clearly purchased at a grocery store and is a mid-tier blend. The restaurant cost, well it’s definitely achievable, but I’d guess most couples are going on the higher end at least on Valentine’s Day. But regardless check out the rankings for which North Carolina cities offer the most affordable Valentine’s Day dates.
