Being creative for Valentine's Day is hard, y'all. This year, it falls on a Friday, which basically forces you to be creative and romantic for an entire weekend, lest you hurt your lovah's feelings. Well, we don't want that, so we're sending you on a silly and romantic(ish) scavenger hunt around Orlando. Let us know how many tasks on the list you complete in the comments. Bonus points if you take pics and tag us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook: @OrlandoWeekly!

6. Have a Sleepless in Seattle moment atop the Suntrust building. (Although, thanks to security, you'll probably have to settle for the top of the parking garage or a random rooftop bar.)

7. Take a romantic ride via horse-drawn carriage.  Or a drunken stumble on a hipster-drawn carriage, er, pedicab.

8. Let Nobunny take over the task of serenading your mate (his dulcet tones and raunchy lyrics hit Will's Pub on Valentine's Day itself).
