Valentine’s Day Guide

Visit Johnstown PA Valentine's Day Guide

The big day is here! Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? If you answered no, fear not! We have a great list of local businesses that can help you prep and plan for a Valentine’s Day like no other!

Not a big Valentine’s Day fan? We have an idea…

If you don’t have a special someone this year, that’s ok; consider adopting a shelter pet. This holiday is about love and there are plenty of cats, dogs, and other animals up for adoption right now that could use a loving home! If you don’t know where to start, the Cambria County Humane Society will gladly help you find a new furry friend in need of a new companion.

Prep – Flowers and Chocolates:

The most important part of a good Valentine’s Day is the prep work. Need a box of chocolates or a bouquet of aromatic flowers?

Here’s a brief listing of chocolatiers and florists, their hours, and if they deliver, all are located in the Cambria County area:

If your significant other isn’t big on flowers and chocolates, there are plenty of other gift options that you can find locally. The greater Johnstown area is home to local gift shops, clothing retailers, and various artisans. Take a moment to stop by one of these great stores:

Even if you don’t need to stay in a hotel overnight, sometimes a little staycation away from home is just what you need. We have a variety of overnight lodging to choose from based on location and price range, but here are a select few:
