Winter Date Ideas

‘Tis the season for snuggles and Netflix. But when you start to get stir crazy, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy winter!


  1. Ice Skating – one of my personal faves. It’s inexpensive, doesn’t require much practice and doubles as a date and a workout. I especially love outdoor rinks – check out Clinton Square if you’re in CNY!
  2. Sledding – this one makes me feel like a little kid. It requires even less skill and money than ice skating. Upgrade by warming up with hot cocoa (or some winter beers) when you’re done hitting the hills.
  3. Sleigh Ride – check your local parks for sleigh rides. In CNY, Highland Forest has a great 20-minute option.
  4. Snowshoeing – some parks offer rentals and guided tours., including moonlight options.
  5. Hockey Game – support your local ice hockey team.
  6. Pub Crawl – take a craft brewery tour or make your own local pub crawl. Winter beers are a great way to relax and warm up.
  7. Neighborhood Christmas Lights Tour – take a drive/walk around one of the festive neighborhoods in your area (more of an early winter option).


What’s  your favorite winter date?
