With Valentine’s Day falling on a Thursday this year, many couples and families are opting to celebrate this weekend instead. While quality time can happen anywhere, why not celebrate by trying something new together? This weekend, the South Bay has plenty to offer. Whether you’d like to make your sweetheart a handmade Valentine’s Day floral arrangement or catch a live performance, El Segundo has something for you.
