February may be synonymous with chocolate and champagne, but there’s more than one way to show someone you care. And it doesn’t even have to be Valentine’s Day.

Body Talk. Learn a little bit more about each other—and yourself—at the Museum of Science’s Hall of Human Life. The engaging exhibit invites you to be “part of the story” through interaction and digital media. Find out how many microbes live in your body, how many calories you burn when you walk and how your sense of balance compares with your date’s. Who knew biology could be so fun?

Garden Party. Watching a bunch of sweaty guys racing around TD Garden may not seem romantic to some, but rooting for your favorite Boston team together inevitably inspires a certain level of bonding. Grab some fried food and a frosty brew and cheer for the Bruins or the Celtics—both teams have a handful of home games happening throughout the month.

Art Attack. Enjoy some visual stimulation at the Museum of Fine Arts, where you could spend an entire day browsing the various galleries. The newly opened Samba Spirit: Modern Afro Brazilian Art is sure to heat up even the coldest day. And the Think Pink exhibit couldn’t be more fitting for Valentine’s Day.

Bowled Over. Crank up your competitive spirit—and the heat—with a friendly game of bowling at Kings. The Back Bay facility features 16 lanes along with three bars and a full-service restaurant. Order from the fun martini menu—Fizzy Lifting Drinks and Gummi Bear Martinis are among the options—or just go classic with a White Russian, a.k.a. “The Dude.”

Liquid Lesson. Knock back a few drinks while learning a thing or two at the Boston Center for Adult Education’s Wine & Spirits Classes. Find out more about your favorite tipples from some of Boston’s best-known mixologists and sommeliers—then make them at home for your sweetheart. The extensive lineup includes everything from a Fizz Seminar to The Art of the Cocktail to a Scotch Tasting. (Inside tip: Save 25 percent on February classes by using the code "LOVE" at checkout.)
