Need to connect with your partner and are looking for some local ideas to up your date night game? Merrimack Valley has some unique options to keep you connected and show off the unique, silly, and romantic sides of your relationship. 

Whether you are a foodie couple who enjoys tasting new and interesting cuisine or a couple that needs to stay active and outdoors, the Merrimack Valley has tons of options to make date night as fun as it is in the movies. 

For The Foodies 

Chopps Italian Steakhouse & Bar is a modern chophouse serving inspired Italian cooking including a variety of succulent cuts of all-natural beef, fresh local seafood, and regional dishes. Located within the Boston Marriott Burlington on Mall Road, many who stay at the hotel dine at Chopps for the lively bar scene and the open kitchen that gives guests a view of the inner workings of the chef’s master skills. 

Chopps offers a full-service breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu that is sure to delight all guests. Don’t forget to order an adult-crafted cocktail while you enjoy the comfortable seating and live music. Your date night will be a success at Chopps. 

For the Fun-Seekers 

Some couples are happy to enjoy a quiet, romantic meal together and others need to be out doing something together. 

At Wamesit Lanes in Tewksbury, MA, couples can enjoy a few strings of bowling with 36 lanes of luxury Candlepin and Ten Pin bowling, relive some of their childhood memories in the arcade, or enjoy a bite to eat in the bar. 

In addition to bowling and gaming, Wamesit offers an amazing escape room experience called Escapology where you and your partner can work together to solve riddles and find clues to get out of five uniquely themed rooms including a deadly virus outbreak, solving a mystery with Scooby-Doo, or a family murder! 

For the Outdoorsy Couple 

Do you and your better half enjoy getting outdoors to hike, bike, or just take a stroll? 

Merrimack Valley has many options to get out into nature and enjoy each other’s company. Three of our favorite places to do this include Walden Pond State Reservation in Concord, Massachusetts, Concord River Greenway Park in Lowell, Massachusetts, and Lowell Heritage State Park also in Lowell, Massachusetts. 

Each of these locations includes wonderful areas to walk, bike, hike, or run but also a peek into the robust historical areas that are all around us in the Merrimack Valley. 

For the Couple Who Likes To Shop 

If you enjoy American-made and responsibly sourced products, the Crafty Yankee Shop in Lexington, Massachusetts is a great destination for unique jewelry, special occasion gifts and table art. Couples who are decorating their first apartment or dream home can find some one-of-a-kind pieces that will be a part of their home’s decor for years to come. 

For Those Who Need a Night Away 

Sometimes couples need a night (or two) away to recharge and reconnect. The North Bridge Inn Bed and Breakfast in Concord, MA is the perfect place to escape from the stresses of everyday life whether that’s work, the kids, or just life in general. 

The North Bridge B&B is located just off Monument Square in downtown Concord and offers six elegant, spacious and individually appointed suites. Take time to rest, shop, dine or explore the local history as a part of your night away. 

The Merrimack Valley offers many options for couples looking to plan a fun, romantic, or active date night. What will you plan?
