Date Ideas: Day or Night, Hop in the Car and Speed Away!


A couple eating ice cream.As parents, many of us focus on the different seasons of parenting and struggle to keep our marriage a priority. My husband and I try to remember we aren’t just parents by having consistent monthly dates. They range from a night at home, a night out, or a quick day date if our schedule allows! Here are a few local date ideas for you to check out in Fairfield County!

RPM Raceway

RPM has established itself as one of the hit places in Stamford. Equipped with a raceway, bowling alley, and arcade games, RPM will make any couple feel like they’re on their first date again. BONUS: There’s a full bar and food too. A one-stop date!

Mind Factory

Escape Rooms are not for the faint of heart and are a great way to test any relationship. You get to practice your communication, problem-solving skills, teamwork, and patience with each other.


Not your average bowling alley, Bowlmor has 38 lanes, an arcade, and laser tag. With food and drinks delivered to your lane, let the good times roll.


For those who enjoy hops and all things beer-related, why not get a map of Connecticut and start crossing off all the amazing breweries we have to offer!? If you’re more into wine than beer, there are numerous vineyards to explore.


With Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods, and Empire City Casinos all close in proximity, why not take your partner and try your luck at the tables? BONUS: On your way to Mohegan or Foxwoods, stop in Mystic. It’s not just for kids! The seaport offers walk-on day sails and excellent restaurants (besides Music Pizza), and the views can’t be beaten.


If you need relaxation, spas are a nice way to unwind and reconnect. There are many spas in the area, including at the casinos, but if you’re looking for one closer with more of a vacation feel, check out Saybrook Point Inn, Spa, and Marina. Their spa is a technology-free zone; from the moment you walk in, your shoulders will relax, and you’ll forget all your troubles. There’s even an indoor hot tub you can use, and in the summer, the shoreline is a beautiful place to walk or bike.

So, what are you waiting for? Start planning your next date ideas now!
