Take a Class Together – Are you both interested in learning something new? Taking a class together is a great way to bond! Enjoy trying out new recipes? Sign up for a cooking class. Looking to add some new wine to your collection? Sign up for a wine tasting class.  Enjoy making each other laugh? Look at an improv class at your local theatre.

Visit an Art Exhibit – Many communities have local galleries that host regular art and photography exhibits. Visit your community’s website to learn when and where artists are showcasing their work. Follow up your outing with a visit to a local coffee house for dessert!

Go for a Winter Hike – The trails you enjoy walking in the summer aren’t always off limits in the winter! Many trails are open year-round but be sure to confirm this first by visiting your city’s website.  Bundle up in your warmest outdoor clothing, pack a thermos of hot chocolate, and explore what nature has to offer in and around your community.

Get Your Adrenaline PumpingStudies have shown that couples who take part in heart-pounding activities together experience an increased attraction to one another.  Sign up for a day of indoor sky diving or indoor rock climbing, or set out for a day of downhill skiing to enjoy some adrenaline pumping fun together.
