Is it just me, or does the holiday season add a little romance to the air? Twinkling Christmas trees, holiday parties, and the rare day where the degrees drop below 60 all add to that amorous feeling. Cuddle up next to a loved one, buy some red roses, and read on because I’ve got just what you need for holiday date night ideas in Coral Gables, baby!
Have a Laugh at Just The Funny-Keep your date nice and warn while chucking it up at my favorite improv spot on Coral Way, Just the Funny. Feeling nervous? Grab a drink at their full bar before heading into any one of their award-winning shows on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night. So, you can basically take a different person to a different show every day of the weekend plus Friday eve.
Hot Chocolate, Anyone?-When the temps get lower than usual, bring that special someone to La Palma. Enjoy their classic hot chocolate and churros under the night sky in their garden space. If that’s not the cutest date idea, I don’t know what is.
Christmas Park-The holiday park at the center of town is for kids— but don’t knock it just yet. At night, the park can become a romantic playground for you and that special someone to spend time in. Walk around the park after a tour through Miracle Mile. Smooch by the giant Santa. Be sure to take a selfie while you’re at it. Oh, and tag me, of course!
Night Garden-Take your cutie to the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden at night! Now through January 6th, you can have an experience like no other. Experience the dazzling NightGarden with illuminated trees and plants that seem to come to life. Talk about a magical winter romance!
Try to Find a Date at Santa’s-Not all of us are exactly out here posting our relationship status. I get it! I’m single, too! Instead of wallowing in sadness over the fact that cuffing season failed us, let’s make our way up Bird Road to Santa’s Enchanted Forest and try to trap a significant other—ehem, I mean, find a date. With all the sparkly lights, rides for two, and plastic Santas around, it can’t be that hard to lure someone onto the Ferris wheel, can it?
