Forget the been there, done that chocolates that you give your loved one every year. Instead, head to an area bakery to find towering milkshakes perfect for sharing, delicious baked goods, and other sweet treats. Grab an M Street Baking Company milkshake to share or head to Chocolate Boutique & Bakery to choose from hand-crafted candy. Wherever your sweet tooth takes you, don’t forget to bring your sweetheart.

6.) See a Movie

Seeing a movie at the theatre might sound boring for your next date night. However, what if the theatre was almost 100 years old? The Historic Howell Theatre has been a staple in the community for 93 years and continues to show its patrons why it’s been around for that long. On your next date night, head to the theatre to watch a new or classic movie, grab your favorite snacks, and then sit back and enjoy the snow.

7.) Enjoy Dinner & A Show

If you’re sick of the same old dinner date night, switch it out with dinner and a show! Try a date night at The Dio – Dining & Entertainment with a delicious dinner buffet and quality entertainment. This local theatre offers beloved shows like Rent, The Violet Hour, and more. Before planning your date night, check out their website to see which production is currently running and to make reservations.
