Date nights have never meant more to me than they do now as a mom when they're few and far between. It's so hard to decide where to go, which new places to try, or which old familiar haunts to reacquaint ourselves with. Having grown up here, there are a few places that are near and dear to my heart I just love to visit over and over. But we're always getting new places with innovative menus and tastes that make trying something new such a fun thing to share with your main squeeze.
I thought it would be fun to share some ideas and destinations to consider if you're planning your next Asheville date night! Excuse me while I go call the babysitter :D
Splurge on a couple's massage at Grove Park's famous spa. It's pricy but it is SO worth it! You can enjoy the spa pools, hot tubs, and lounges together, too.
Go for a drive on the parkway, bring a blanket and a backpack, and hike up to an overlook or a waterfall. Catch your breath while you relax, refuel, and maybe take a swim if you can handle the chilly water!
Downtown day time: create your own walking brewery tour in the South Slope area. I recommend you try the following breweries: Asheville Brewing, Twin Leaf, Catawba, and Green Man. The new Green Man building is beautiful but there's something special about the original space next door!
Downtown night time: so many places to choose from it's hard to pick just a few. Right now, I love starting with a cocktail at Sovereign Remedies, walking to dinner at Rhubarb, and finishing with a fireside nightcap on the rooftop bar at Capella on 9 at the AC Hotel.
By no means is this list all-inclusive -- I'm constantly discovering new places to love and new experiences to enjoy! Feel free to shoot me a message and tell me where you love to go to date your honey.
Hope you're having a great week! Tomorrow is Friday woo hoooo!
