Couples tend to get a little lazy during the colder months. So, after spending all winter being cooped inside, curled up on the couch watching Netflix, it's time for you two to soak up the springtime and reignite the romance with some of these fun, seasonal date ideas. 

  • Head to a Local Festival Together

    The arrival of spring means festival season has begun here in Northern Colorado. Festivals make for the perfect low-key date, where you two can have fun sampling foods and drinking together, plus, there's always live music or some other type of entertainment going on too. If you're looking for some options within the upcoming months, the Taste of Fort Collins and the Front Range Rally would both be great choices.

  • Walk Through a Botanical Garden

  • Take in a Sunrise or Sunset Together at Horsetooth

    If you both happen to be early risers, pack up some pastries and a pot of coffee to share while watching the sun come up over Horsetooth – there's nothing like a little a.m. romance. Or, opt for going to watch the sunset instead, which is equally just as romantic.

  • Go to a Rockies Game

    With nine innings to spend chatting, and cheering on the home team while sharing some peanuts or cracker jacks together, it's hard for a couple not to have a good time at a baseball game! The atmosphere is guaranteed to always be fun and super laid-back, and even if you're not a fan of baseball, you can still be a sport and share the experience with your significant other.

  • Peruse a Farmer's Market as a Pair

    For the foodie couples out there, find a local farmer's market where you two can pick up some fresh ingredients, then head to a park for an afternoon picnic.

  • Play Tourists for a Day

    Now that the weather permits, take the opportunity to explore some place new in town that neither of you has ever been to before. Or try going on a local tour of some kind, like a haunted ghost tour or a brewery tour.

  • Go for a Hike

    There's certainly no shortage of amazing areas to go hiking around northern Colorado. While taking in beautiful views, hiking also gives you the chance to get closer as couple, as you spend the day talking and experiencing a memorable adventure together.

  • Go Star Gazing

    As it starts to stay warmer at nighttime, wait for the sun to go down and head to an open space where you can lay and watch the stars in the sky. It's a romantic and intimate way to spend time together.

  • Go to the Dog Park

    This is a great option if you're looking for a casual way to get to know each other on a first date, or if you're both just animal lovers in general.

  • Grill Out Together

    You don't always have to go out to a nice restaurant for date night. Instead, grill up some burgers and hot dogs right in the comfort of your own backyard, put on some music, imbibe in some beverages, and spend the evening just lounging around outside.
