DATES include finding the perfect spot to take your loved one during winter. Here in Utah there are plenty of places to go during the winter for all types of people, whether you love to be outdoors or simply enjoy something close to home.

If you’d like to feel the cool fresh breezy air going toward your face, sledding, skiing or a nice walk in the park is for you. Sugarhouse Park and Gorgoza Park are fabulous places to go sledding. Just make sure you don’t get hurt having too much fun.

Meanwhile taking nice peaceful walks in the park also sounds nice. Cottonwood Park and 11th Avenue Park are other good places to go get some fresh air, although you may want to go to one closer to home. A walk is a great way to get to know your loved one more than you already do by just talking about funny childhood memories – it might just sound like the perfect date.

Or maybe athletics seem to be something you both enjoy. Skiing resorts are ready now for people to relish. Snowbird would be a good place to go, although just don’t forget to remember about one another’s safety, especially if it’s your first time.

However, maybe just staying at home seems to be your thing. No problem with that, why not just have a movie day marathon. Sometimes you just want to stay home with your loved one. You order take out and watch some of your favorite movies. A time where you just get to relax without anyone there to bother, you turn off your phone and set it aside in order to enjoy the movies.

Movies at home sound fun for many people but for others, they prefer watching movies at the theaters. Megaplex Theaters at Valley Fair and Megaplex Theaters at The Gateway are some good places to go watch movies and eat some fresh, buttery popcorn.

Although, staying at home or going out to watching movies does sound nice once in a while, it’s also good to new things. Going to coffee shops or any place where there’s food and simply just trying new foods and drinks in order to discover something that might just be your new favorite.

Many may say that food is their specialty, why not have a date along those lines. Pick a meal and shop for ingredients together. Then cook it all up at home. Making a meal in the kitchen is a great way to spark some conversation.

If cooking’s not for you, there would always be an Olive Garden or a Red Lobster near you. Although, it may be a bit pricy, don’t forget, it would be worth it. However, you don’t have to go to any fancy date, don’t forget there’s also Burger King, In-N-Out and many more.

Lights out. There’s also glow in the dark bowling. Orchard Lanes in North Salt Lake is a good place to visit. Go out to have some fun. Don’t get a bowling ball that’s too heavy just to impress someone, get one that’s just right in order to beat your opponent.

And remember to have fun and cherish every moment of it. Clever date ideas make it easy to talk and get to know each other better.
