Looking for ideas * please help

I am looking for ideas for the upcoming Valentines Day.
Things are very different this year in our household. And this Valentines has some special circumstances that are making us have a hard time coming up with unique ideas for things to do.
Let me break it down. My oldest son is 21 years old. And is a very capable man. He needs to have a sleep study done in a large city he is unacquainted with so we offered to go with him and stay in a hotel near where his sleep study is and make a weekend of it. Now, all that are going are myself, hubby, 21 yr old son, 10 year old son and our puppy. PUPPY is a glitch in many things we can do as a family. And that is fine, we take responsibility for him. Accommodations have already been made for the family and the puppy to be with us. My son's sleep study is Friday night (13th) and we are to pick him up the morning of the 14th. So we booked 2 nights at the hotel just in case the sleep center needs extra time with him and so we can be away from home for some Rest and relaxation. My oldest son (21) has offered to stay in the room with my ten year old and the puppy having some brother time with pizza and games and such if my husband and I wanted to go do something. This is more than sweet of him.
So, I used to be very creative with things like this but somewhere it has been hiding in me to plan up something to do keeping in mind the restrictions we have or may have that day. We do not want to make reservations anywhere in case our son needs more time at the sleep center. And we enjoy doing things on the fly. So, I am looking for ideas that are not expensive, not calorie riddled, not boring, not a loner activity, and not a crowded activity. I know those last two kind of contradict themselves, but I hope you know what I mean. We don't know the city that well, and we don't drink often. We are looking to step outside the box of dinner and a movie on this day just to feel a little more special.
Anyone have any ideas???
