All couples deserve a weekly date night!
Harry and I are pretty good about setting aside time to have date night at least once a week. Our idea of a date night can be anything from a fancy dinner to being outdoors in tennis shoes. Some things cost money while others are absolutely free!
Below, I have listed some of our favorite date night ideas:
-Dinner on the town: We love to grab dinner in downtown (Spartanburg or Greenville) and just walk around the town afterwards! Down town Spartanburg is very special to us because that is where we got engaged and Falls Park in Greenville is a go to spot for us as well!
-Ice cream and the park: We love taking Ace to get ice cream at Brusters and going to the park. We play fetch with Ace and go on walks around the park. Sometimes we go to Barnet Park while other times we go to USC Upstate’s soccer fields. This is one of our favorite ways to unwind!
-Duncan Park: We LOVE going to Duncan Park in Spartanburg. We take left over bread from home and feed it to the ducks in the water. Then, we sit by the pond while we talk and pray. Sometimes, we even take our Bible’s! This is also a fun thing to do on a Saturday morning and go visit Broadway Bagels after. 🙂
-The Mountains: Ahh! This is one of our favorite things to do. We love going to Hendersonville! I grew up going to a campground there called Bonclarken and I love taking Harry there to visit. You have to visit the fudge shop, Kilwins, while you’re in Hendersonville too.
*side note: the picture above was taken 5 years ago on our 3rd or 4th date in Hendersonville*
-Outings: We love to plan outings and change things up from the typical date night, so occasionally we plan outings for concerts, festivals, trips, etc!
-Other: lake days, boat rides, hiking, occasionally shopping, football nights, netflix & chill!
If you’re not from the Upstate area, you can totally adjust your date nights to the parks and scenery near you! If you are from the Upstate, these are some of our favorite restaurants:
-Wild Ace // Spartanburg
-Miyako Sushi // Spartanburg
-Tsunami // Greenville
-Pig Out BBQ // Spartanburg
-Up on the Roof // Greenville
Go out and enjoy a date night!
If you’re married, I think it is so important to remember to date your spouse!
