Stage a picnic as Lehigh Valley farmers’ markets offer a spread of local products year-round. With marinated olives, beautiful breads, cheeses and baked goods, and local libations, you'll ignite a new spark in addition to the outdoor setting or candlelit charcuterie picnic warming your winter night. 

Step up the traditional dinner and a movie with a museum and a movie as regional museums offer screenings throughout the year and are located near some of the region's tantalizing award-winning restaurants to accompany your date night. Catch a show at one of Lehigh Valley's performance venues, or experience art and style at one of the area's eclectic art galleries or museums. Channel that steamy scene from Ghost as you try something new together: sculpting on a pottery wheel at a class at The Banana Factory or Baum School of Art

Learn to dance, whether at a special occasion or in your kitchen as you cook together, the chemistry and reciprocity of dancing together mirrors that of a good relationship. The give and take, the close attention—it’s dynamite. If you’ve felt too awkward to start or just want to up your game, try a non-credit couples’ class at Northampton Community College and nail down the basics of the foxtrot, waltz, and swing.

Set aside the screens and make sweet memories in an old-fashioned, intimate way. Read together or to each other. From Book & Puppet in Easton to Let's Play Books in Emmaus, there are cozy local booksellers happy to help you procure a read you’ll both enjoy, whether you’re nodding off to a comforting voice or giving the characters cool accents.

Up for something active? Hike or bike the many trails of Lehigh Valley. When it's all said and done, leave your cares at home and hibernate together in luxury at a bed and breakfast. You don’t have to go far with The Sayre Mansion and Historic Hotel Bethlehem offering historical escapes right in the heart of Lehigh Valley and Glasbern Inn providing a rural retreat in Fogelsville. Eat well, rest well, and enjoy no distractions from each other.
