Delete those online florist emails and instead head down to L.A.'s floral district this Valentine's Day -- you'll get a deal, and you'll be helping out local businesses in the process. The floral district is expanding its hours in the days leading up to Feb. 14, and will be open 24 hours the night before.

"This is the second busiest holiday of the year for our vendors, and they are trying to be more accommodating to make the downtown shopping experience easier for everyone," writes Ariana Gomez, Public Information Coordinator for LA Fashion District BID. "We're trying to get the word out so Valentine's Day shoppers can plan accordingly."
