Four Fabulous Hampton Roads Holiday Dates

There’s something romantic about this time of year.

The cities are lit up, the chill in the air encourages gloved hand-holding, and there are plenty of fun, festive activities to keep couples of any age entertained.

Here are a few romantic ways to spend a day or evening with someone special in Hampton Roads this holiday season.


See the Lights

This date is often cheap or free, leaves plenty of space for conversation, and exists in every Hampton Roads city or is just a short drive away. Whether it’s wandering through downtown Norfolk or on the boardwalk, driving through a park, or standing in the crowds for a grand illumination, this fa la la la-lightup date will definitely be a big hit.

Ice Skate

The quintessential winter date is here in Hampton Roads. Whether you’re a pro or a klutz, you’ll have fun at one of Hampton Roads’ seasonal outdoor rinks. These dates are also pretty inexpensive and offer a festive atmosphere with a fun, sporty feel. Plus there’s always the hope for a few snowflakes. (Hey, we can dream!)

Watch a Holiday Movie

If you’re looking for something a little more timeless, how about a holiday movie? We all have our favorite holiday movies that we love to share and a couch night might be in order, or there are plenty of seasonal showings around Hampton Roads.

Help Out at a Local Food Bank

‘Tis the season for giving, and volunteering at a local food back will leave both you and your date feeling great for having helped the community and grateful for what you have. Any of these food banks need help! Give them a call and they’ll put you to work.

Hampton Roads is such a wonderful place to live, work, and play. During the holidays, that’s doubly true!
