valentine's day

David Adams / Time

South Florida cities have a habit in making the “worst of the worst” lists. Most recently, WalletHub Best and Worst Cities for Valentine’s Day 2016 ranked Hialeah as the worst city for Valentine’s Day and Miami not too far behind ranking 82nd out of the 100 cities that were listed. (Hialeah also ranked second among worst cities for singles.)

Alma de Tango

It’s Valentine's Day week – and let’s face it, Latin American music helps you get your romance on.

In South Florida you’d have to be a zombie not to know that. Wait, I take that back. I’ve seen even zombie couples here dancing to bolero, bachata, bossa nova and all the other amorous Latin genres that make Miami a 24-hour telenovela soundtrack.

Miami International Airport is acting Cupid as Valentine’s Day approaches, receiving and shipping over 90 percent of flowers imported to the United States.

The overwhelming number of flower shipments from South America and other regions bring up concerns of pests and plant diseases for the nation’s agricultural and floral industries.

Together, the Miami-Dade Aviation Department, LAN Cargo, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection go through an annual inspection process to prevent the industries from being harmed.

American Stamp Dealers Association

There are many ways to send a Valentine's Day greeting in 2014 -- text, email, social media.

But in 1857, there weren't so many.

A passionate love letter from Samuel Eager to Clara Dwight Marsh is being displayed at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Convention Center.

The Sun Sentinel reports that the tiny letter along with a rare stamp is on display at the American Stamp Dealers Association convention.
