It can be challenging to find new and exciting “date night” activities in our small communities. I’ve come up with a great list of local things that would be wonderful to add to your calendar for date night!
Dinner & a stroll on the Riverwalk: Enjoy one of downtown Almonte’s many wonderful restaurants and then take a stroll down the Riverwalk boardwalk. The walking path starts in behind the Old Town Hall and takes you on a beautiful scenic route following the Mississippi River. During the warmer months, this is truly the perfect evening and best way to experience downtown Almonte
Bowling in Carleton Place: Did you know there is a bowling alley in downtown Carleton Place? The bowling alley has been there for many years but was recently purchased and given a modern make-over by its new owners. Chasin’ Turkeys Bowling Alley is a great place to spend the evening with your significant other. They offer snacks and drinks (including alcoholic) for purchase as well as shoe rentals. This unique date night is a must!
Board Games at Almonte’s Mirco-Brewery: Crooked Mile Brewery offers a one-of-a-kind experience in Almonte. They welcome you to bring in your own food to enjoy with one of their many craft beer choices. They have a selection of board games that you can play while you enjoy your food and drinks. What a great way to spend an evening bonding.
Take a drive out to Burnstown or Calabogie: If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, the drive out to Calabogie & Burnstown is truly beautiful. There are a number of different routes you can take, all of which are scenic. Both small towns have a number of great little cafes and restaurants.
This unique list is a good start on things that you can add to your date night calendar! Now you just have to make the choice of which experience to indulge first!
