Valentines Day is coming up! Feeling romantic but not sure what to do? We’ve compiled a list of a few different ideas of places to go as a couple in Plymouth, MN. As a fun add on to date night we included topics to discuss or things to do as a part of making the most out of your date night! These are all great things to do outside of Valentines Day as well, and many are even kid friendly.
Support a local business and order some delicious Mexican take out at La Cocina de Ana
Cocina de Ana is a local business that has oven ready meals available for pick up. Try the pollo con adobo! Once you get home and have your goodies in the oven, download the app “Gottman Card Decks” go to the “love maps” questions. These are questions designed to get at deeper level conversations than you may be used to doing in order to increase your knowing of one another. Extra bonus: try the “sex questions” to learn more about what each other desires.
Go out for a movie at Plymouth Grand 15
You could start the night off with dinner at your favorite restaurant and then grab some popcorn
and snuggle up for a great movie at Plymouth Grand 15. If you’d like to go to dinner right near the theater we suggest Kobe for some fun Hibachi.
Try snowshoeing, cross country skiing, or sledding at French Regional Park
There’s something for everyone when it comes to winter rentals in the area. At French Regional Park, you can rent snowshoes for $6 a pair (two hour time limit), cross country skis for $14 a pair (two hour time limit), or sleds for free! Winter activities not your thing? No worries! Go for a walk along one of the many trails at French Regional Park and talk about what you admire most about each other.
Have a romantic evening at Luce Line Brewing Co.
Grab a beer and some pizza and talk about some of your favorite memories from your relationship so far. For extra points start dreaming of your next trip together. Luce Line Brewing Co is a great spot to have an intimate, yet casual conversation. Near by this brewery is also the luce line trail which is great for walking.
Give Ice Skating a try at Plymouth Ice Center
Bring your own skates or rent some for $5 a pair. There is open skating on Tuesday afternoons and Friday evenings. Check their schedule for exact times. You can even turn this into a fun competition- whoever falls the least amount of times gets to pick where you have dinner! Or every time someone falls they have to say one thing they love about you.
Get your sweat on with fitness classes at the Plymouth Community Center
From yoga and dance classes, to open court times for pickleball, they offer a variety of ways to get your body moving and try something new with your partner(s)! If you want to keep it more low key just do some laps around their indoor walking track while talking about your first date. What do you remember about it?
Relax with a Couples Massage at Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa
Slow down and be present with your partner(s) during a relaxing couples massage. After the massage discuss ways that you each like to be touched- and get specific!
