We have had a lot on our plates for a long time. Take a break – you deserve it! – and plan a date night in Detroit! From outdoor dining to romantic strolls down the alley’s of the Paris of the Midwest, here are 10 ideas to get you started.
Keep your comfy clothes on and cuddle up in the car for movie night at the Monroe Street Drive-In.
Take stroll down Parker’s Alley, get a hot coffee from Madcap, a bouquet from Flowers for Dreams and an engraved Love Lock from the Shinola store to add to the alley’s art installation.
Hit The Ice
Rent skates and take laps at The Rink at Campus Martius.
Capture The Moment
Snap a selfie next to the Detroit Sign at Grand Circus Park on Woodward, the life-sized lighted snowflake at Campus Martius or the Lights at the Esplanade so you don’t forget that once upon a time you did have a date night.
Treat Yo Self
Break A Sweat
Take a deep breath and relax with Pure Barre Detroit, they are offering in person and live stream classes.
Order to-go cocktails from Standby (they are as delicious as a bar pour) and make a toast at home or a hotel.
Make it a staycation and book a room at one of the beautiful downtown accommodations.
