The colder weather is officially upon us, and there’s something particularly special about this time of the year that makes winter dates feel more memorable and romantic. From the magical holiday lights to the smell of winter air, it’s the best time of the year to go on a date in New Tripoli.
Make the best of this year’s winter season with these 5 date ideas.
Have a Romantic Dinner
We have a lot of tasty dishes at our cafe, and they make for the perfect accompaniment when it comes to having a romantic dinner. Start off with a light appetizer or entree from our cafe, and top it off with a glass of wine. If you can’t make it into our cafe, consider having a romantic dinner at home by ordering our dishes through takeout! Dinner dates are a good way to spend quality time with each other and have a cozy date without being in the colder weather.
Go Ice Skating
Ice skating is a classic winter activity, and whether or not you’re a pro, it can make for a fun winter date as you glide around the ice and spend time enjoying each other’s company. There’s a ton of great places for ice skating, including the Steel Ice Center and the Rink at Lehigh Valley.
Visit the Magic Tree at Olde Homestead
Our Magic Tree lights are truly a beautiful sight, and it’s now open to visitors! It’s become an annual special tradition at Olde Homestead, and all proceeds from the light strand purchases go towards the Northwestern Lehigh Veterans Memorial. It’s a perfect way to honor your loved ones and make your date feel more romantic and magical.
Go Snow Tubing
Grab your gloves and get ready to dive into the snow! Snow tubing is a great way to take advantage of the colder weather, and it offers all the same fun perks as sledding, but even better. Ride in a tube together or race each other down the hill in your own solo tubes. Check out Blue Mountain Resort and make sure to warm up at a fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate afterward!
Visit a Holiday Market
A holiday market is a great way to tackle some of your Christmas shopping while you spend time together. Consider visiting the Christkindlmarket Behelem in Lehigh Valley to see some handmade artisan items and enjoy some live Christmas music. If you’re looking to add a fun twist to your date, try surprising each other with a gift from the market or turn it into a contest by challenging each other to find a unique item.
