1. Visit a local museum, landmark, or other tourist attraction that you’ve never seen before


Choose a place in your town that neither of you has seen that you’ve always wanted to see.

2. Ice skating


Ice skating can be a romantic & fun activity on a chilly night. Dress warm, smile, and you might even get a handhold!

3. Build a blanket fort


Draw out your inner child and build a pillow & blanket fort together. Then eat dinner, watch a movie, or play card games in the fort.

4. Go to a hockey game


Hockey is an exciting winter sport to watch live. Find a college or professional team near you and attend a game together. Get hot chocolate during or after to warm things up.

5. Go sledding, tubing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing


The thing you can’t get outdoors and do something active in the winter? Think again. Find opportunities to get outside and do some winter sports!

6. Explore a new restaurant

Instead of going to the same old spots, find a restaurant neither of you has ever been before & try a new menu item.

7. Take a social dance class


Even if neither of you has ever danced before, this is a great way to step out of your comfort zone and do something fun together. Who knows, you might even pick up a new hobby!

8. Take a painting class


Find a painting class in your area. These classes make it easy to create something you’ll love no matter your skill set.

9. Go on a carriage ride


Many cities offer horse-drawn carriage rides in the winter. Try it for a cozy romantic excursion!

10. Make indoor s’mores


If it’s too cold to go outside and make s’mores, turn on your stove and roast marshmallows right there. Your date will be impressed with your ingenuity and an off-season tasty treat.

11. Go to the local library and read books


If you both happen to like books, take a trip to the local library and pick a couple of your favorite children’s books to read to each other.

12. Hot chocolate night


Make your own gourmet hot chocolate, with different flavors, stir-ins, etc. Curl up with a blanket and chat while you try your creations.

13. Go to a yoga class


Yoga is a great way to relax and something that both genders can enjoy! Attend a local free yoga class together.

14. Indoor miniature golf

Putt-Putt golf is a classic date. If it’s too cold to play miniature golf outdoors find a fun center that offers indoor games.

15. Rock climbing indoors

Challenge yourself physically with an indoor climbing course! Indoor rock climbing is a great form of exercise when it’s too cold to go outside.

16. Look at Christmas lights


Don’t miss the magical activities of the season! Driving around to see Christmas lights is cheap, easy and fun.

17. Help at a soup kitchen or other volunteer opportunity


Stepping outside of yourself can be a great way to get to know your date. Find a local volunteer opportunity for the holidays and enjoy making the world a better place.

18. Make cookies and deliver them to elderly neighbors

Baking keeps your hands busy while you get to know each other and sharing a warm treat with someone who may be lonely will warm your hearts.

19. Play your favorite board & card games with each other


Bring a couple of your favorite games and have your date do the same. Teach each other how to play & have fun!

20. Go for a moonlit walk


This is particularly magical right after a fresh snowfall. Put on your boots, hats, and coats and take a walk in the white powder.
