Dinner is a date night favorite, but don’t be afraid to switch things up. Trying something new together can foster closeness.

Uncle Johns Cider Mill Head out to the Cider Mill for a whole evening filled with fun. Grab a hard cider from the tap room, or the Cider Yard on the weekend, listen to some live music, and grab dinner from the food trucks! It’s the perfect date night location
