We’re getting to the part of the year where the days are colder and shorter. However, the romance is still fluttering in the air. In this blog post, I will share five date ideas for the Holidays!

5. Grab Some Coffee/Hot Cocoa

There are quite a few local cafes I can suggest!

4. Have Dinner at a Nice Local Resturaunt

Eating at local restaurants is a great way to bond with someone while supporting a local business! Here are some excellent local restaurants I have been to and certainly suggest!

3. Check Out Local Events Near You

Always check if any events are going on near you! You will find all sorts of fun, unique, exciting things to do! You can check out my “News and Events” page here on my website or search for events on Facebook! I always keep my events page up-to-date! A few events my Husband and I are looking at this December are:

2. Go Look At Christmas/Holiday Lights Together

Sightseeing for Christmas/Holiday lights is always a fun idea! Many neighborhoods in Lexington often decorate for Christmas, and I feel this would be a unique date experience. There are also places like Louisville Mega Cavern, which hosts Lights Under Louisville, and Southern Lights in Lexington that showcase Christmas/Holiday lights and displays with quite a bit of extra things to do! I will say, Southern Lights has to be one of my favorite places in the wintertime.

1. Go Ice Skating

Ice skating is also a unique date idea. So many people are afraid to get on the ice, but this makes for a great bonding moment together as you can face your fears with each other by trying ice skates out! The Lexington Ice Center is a magnificent place for those who have never been ice skating before! You can check out their website by clicking here. You can also visit Triangle Park in Lexington and their seasonal skating rink! To view times and prices, click here!

Final Thoughts

No matter what you choose to do for date night, remember that time is precious. Turn off the cellphones, try something new, get out and experience the world around you! If you enjoyed these ideas and if you try them out, let me know! I may make a post for date ideas in Nicholasville or Lexington, or both soon!

  1. Solomon’s cafe in wilmore is great for a date. Christian atmosphere. Also wood burning stove sits by chairs and couch so you can cozy up. Not to mention the food and coffee is great. I also enjoy shaker town in the winter and holidays. When I went it was snowing and they had hot cocoa and chocolate covered pretzels on a wagon you just walk up serve yourself and it was free. Also it’s free to walk around the grounds and tour. They reinact what the shakers would do to celebrate Christmas in one of the houses. There are horse drawn carriage to ride. Always good gospel music playing in one of the houses. It’s just really romantic and teaches of a simple life .


  2. I love these suggestions. Would you like to have a challenge?…lol What are some fun, free things to do in/around Nicholasville with a date for someone who suffers from social anxiety and can’t be around groups of people?


  3. These are great suggestions. Would you like a challenge?…lol What can a couple do, in/around Nicholasville, that is FREE/CHEAP and is suitable for someone who suffers from social anxiety and cannot be around groups of people?
