1. Test your Strength and Problem-solving Skills
Relationships can be mystifying, but with this date activity, you and your partner will have to work together to solve another stumper - and in only sixty minutes. At Mystery Mayhem Escapes in Slippery Rock, you and your partner will, quite literally, be locked in a room together, where you will decipher a series of clues to unbolt the door. Who knows, maybe the ticking clock and adrenaline rush will “unlock” something new in your romance! And if not, there’s always axe-throwing next door!
2. Surprise your Date by Staying Put
Nothing is more romantic than a spontaneous weekend trip, but who says you have to leave to get away? Book a “stay-cation” at one of Butler County’s cutest bed and breakfasts in a quaint, opulent corner of Slippery Rock Township. The Applebutter Inn, originally erected as a farmhouse in 1844, rests amongst the County’s picturesque hillsides and elderly maple trees. Its classic brick walls and sweeping patio offer a gentle seat into a more simple time while enchanting lovers with wine, flowers, and all of the modern luxuries to transform a weekend into a romantic holiday.
3. Level up your Movie Night
Everyone loves a classic movie night, but why not go a little retro? Take this as your sign to power off the streaming services, pack a blanket or two, and take a summer road trip to the Starlight Drive-In. You and your date can cozy up in the driver's seat with a front row view to thrilling new releases as well as your old favorites. During intermissions, you can order a tall milkshake with two straws at the Starlight Concession Stand or engage in some flirty trash talk down at the Drive-In’s mini golf course!
4. Find Savasana and Set Romantic Intentions
All relationships take work, but good work is done together, and perhaps the best work is performed on a yoga mat. Studies have confirmed that couples who practice yoga with each other are likely to experience higher levels of physical and emotional intimacy, increased quality communication, and less overall relational tension. Studio Z Yoga in Zelienople invites you and your partner to release stress and “find savasana” at their Tuesday and Thursday evening candlelit sessions, where yogis of all skill levels can take a deep cleansing breath and move their bodies in a relaxing, romantic ambience.
