Let’s dive into some casual, crazy, and completely doable date night adventures.
Date Night Idea #1: Dinner & a Craft
Doing a craft together is a great bonding opportunity for couples, so grab your hammer and head to Tipp City. Start your date off by having dinner at one of Tipp City’s lovely restaurants. We love going to Coldwater Cafe or Frida’s for date nights!
After dinner head over to Board and Brush and make a craft together! There is a variety of different projects you can choose from including making your own sign or game! You will want to book this in advance, click here to learn more.
If after the date, you still don’t want to go home you can always end the night with a lovely walk in downtown Tipp City.
Date Night Idea #2: Early Morning Coffee & Shop
Are you a morning person? Than this date is for you but it’s only available during the summer months. Head to downtown Troy and grab coffee at one of the cute coffee shops like Purebred Coffee or Winans.
Check out our favorite coffee shops here.
After indulging in your drink head over to Cherry Street and take in the local farmer’s market. This is a great opportunity to buy local produce and goods while hanging out with your partner!
Date Night Idea #3: Charcuterie & Cider
Are you and your partner foodies? If so, we have the perfect place for you! Check out Crafted & Cured in downtown Troy.
This beautiful establishment is the place to indulge in a variety of different ciders, beers, or even bourbon ( We LOVE the Amaretto Sour).
From a bread board to the Ploughman’s board, Crafted & Cured has a handcrafted charcuterie option anyone will love.
We love the Best of the Board, which included cured grapes and serrano ham. If you’re looking to celebrate make sure to get the Dessert Board which has macarons, peanut brittle, and a cream puff, it’s the perfect way to celebrate a birthday or anniversary!
Learn why we love Crafted & Cured here.
Date Night Idea #4: A Butterfly Walk Followed By A Scenic Dinner
Aer you a nature enthusiast? Then take your next date (during warm months) to the local butterfly habitat at Treasure Island.
Located to the north of Treasure Island Park and alongside the Great Miami River, the Monarch Butterfly Habitat, was established on a five-acre parcel of land gifted to the City of Troy in 2011 by Illinois Tool Works.
This is the perfect space to walk around and enjoy nature. This is a very easy trail and it even has a sitting area where you can take in your surroundings.
After taking a stroll through this beautiful trail you can head over to Smith’s Boathouse for a great dinner. If it’s warm out you can even sit on the patio which overlooks the river!
Date Night Idea #5: Discover Local Wine at This Beautiful Winery
Did you know Miami County is home to it’s very own winery? Located in West Milton, Old Mason Winery has been open since 2013.
From Riesling to rose, they have a large selection of wines making it easy to find your next favorite. If you plan ahead you can even attend one of their local events that include live music.
Remember, the key to a memorable date night is the laughter you share and the moments you create together. So, grab your partner and get to make some new memories that you will cherish for years to come.
