Romantic Summertime Dates You Can Host at Home

Published: July 22, 2021

Thanks to its unique natural setting, the living experience at The Canyons provides residents with many exciting locales for romantic dates. Sometimes you can find more magic staying close to home than if you head out for a night on the town! Read on to find ideas for creative summertime dates you can enjoy within walking distance.

Picnic in the Open Space

Take your dinner date outside! As the summer sun sets, pack a picnic hamper with finger foods and refreshing beverages, then head to one of the scenic parks or overlooks with your cooler, a blanket or two, and your partner. Take in the romantic Colorado atmosphere as the cool twilight sets in and you nibble on appetizers and sip something seasonal. Ideal spots to lay your blanket include Ramble Park or The Green at Canyon Village— where will you and your loved one go?

Wine at The Exchange

With the updated menu at The Exchange Coffee House, you can treat your date to a glass of wine or a pint of beer right in your neighborhood. Make the most of an afternoon get-together and add a few rounds of playfully competitive board games to your drink date! To keep the evening going, stay for dinner and feast on summer favorites prepared by the chef — like delicious chicken verde or slow-roasted pork tacos. End the night with a stroll through The Green at Canyon Village to bask in the pleasant Colorado air and cherish the moment with the person you love most.

Takeout Meal in Your Home

Spice up your typical date night routine by staying home! You can transform a regular dinner into a special occasion by ordering in from a local sit-down restaurant, lighting candles, and using your best flatware. For a sophisticated meal, consider Italian food — you can bring all the opulent class of the regional cuisine to the comfort of your dining room. Start the evening with glasses of wine or cocktails out on your patio to complete the feel of a night on the town — or indulge in a restaurant that features American dishes paired with your favorite Colorado beers. No matter what you’re in the mood for, Castle Pines offers fare that is sure to match your tastes.
