RALEIGH -- From trolleys, to arcade bars, to globally renowned restaurants, it is certain that downtown Raleigh isn't suffering from a shortage of unique ways for Triangle residents to celebrate Valentine's Day.
But one of our most recommended picks this year is Videri Chocolate Factory.
Locally owned, and located in the city's Warehouse District, Videri offers everything from boxed chocolates and novelty gifts, to self-guided tours where you can see the chocolate-making process, to coffees and hot chocolates you can enjoy at their in-house cafe.
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, manager Roxanne Lundy says they are ready to help the community celebrate.
"Valentine's Day is a 'last-minute' holiday," laughs Lundy. "But we've got everything ready now, and we're excited for what we'll have next week as well."
In addition to chocolate, the factory will also host neighboring florist, Wylde Flowers, on Tuesday and Wednesday. Making this the "one stop shop" for everything you need to celebrate the special day.
Flowers will be available for purchase at the factory on Tuesday 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Wednesday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
The factory itself will be open until 10 p.m. on Valentine's day.
Videri Chocolate Factory is located at 327 W. Davie Street, in "Sweet" 100.
