Plan A Winter Date Night to Remember

Fun Tips for Dates on a Winter’s Night

Whether it’s a cozy movie night in your private home theater or an evening of fiery fiddles at your favorite Irish pub, sometimes you need a date night to brush aside your worries and reconnect with the one you love.

But when it’s cold outside, planning gets a little bit tricky.

No worries! Taylor Morrison has a whole snow bank filled with fantastic date night ideas for when the weather outside is frightful.

Twinkle, Twinkle

The bitter cold can’t hurt you if you never get out of the car! A magical wintertime activity from new townhomes in Atlanta to So Cal homes at Muse at Cadence Park in Irvine, taking a spin around town to ogle holiday light displays will fill your heart with the festive spirit.

Head to the Starbucks drive-thru to pick up your favorite hot drink and cruise your way to a fun evening of sparkling lights.

Try Out an Exotic Restaurant

Speaking of Muse, if you’re looking for a new home in Irvine, CA and love to dine out, we recently put together this tasty list of Irvine, Upland & Ontario eateries to put on your wish list.

No matter where you live, Yelp, Open Table and Urbanspoon are your friends. Be adventurous and give your taste buds something new to devour!

Find a Fireplace

There’s something romantic about the flickering flames of a fireplace. Add a bottle of wine and soothing music to transform the great room at your Terrain Ravenwood in Castle Rock, Colorado home into an idyllic date night location.

Here are more ideas for planning a warm winter night in.

Prefer to head out? No problem. Find a bar, coffee shop or lodge near you with comfy fireside chairs.

Do a Winter Wonderland Photoshoot

Bundle up and break out your camera for a fun outdoor runway show with just you and yours. Many National Parks will be dusted with a beautiful blanket of snow and Californians can take advantage of quiet winter beach scenes.

Go Home Shopping!

When you’re in the market for a new construction home, nothing is more exciting on a date night than checking out new home communities that have caught your eye. Browse Taylor Morrison communities near you and imagine the possibilities.

Plan a late afternoon viewing and work a model home tour into your date night activities.

Explore Indoor Activities

From board game cafes to old school fun like the bowling alley or video arcade, there’s plenty of entertainment near you that doesn’t require braving sub-zero temperatures.

Break out of your comfort zone by trying your hand at rock climbing at an indoor climbing wall or give your brain a workout with an escape room. Really. Try it. It’s a lot of fun.

Plan Your Very Own At-Home Tasting Menu

Cook up a storm in the gourmet kitchen featured in the Arlington II plan at Townsend at Brookhaven near Atlanta, GA. Recreate the ambiance of a chic tasting menu by picking up a selection of upscale goodies from the gourmet section of your local deli as starters. (Pro Tip: You don’t have to prepare everything yourself! Think serrano ham, prosciutto, creamy French cheeses, Greek olives, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.)

Add to the experience by choosing a few craft beers or new wines that you’ve never tried before. Line up a row of clean glasses and pour your own flight of samplers on the center island. Jot down your favorites and remember them for your next date night.

Prefer mixology to beer & wine? Search the web for red hot cocktail recipes and convert your game room into a sophisticated bar for the evening. You can even make the drink menu holiday themed with sparkling cider sangria or spiked hot cocoa.

Everything’s Brighter There

Get dressed up and venture downtown. Find an art gallery that’s open late or take in a show. If you’ve got kids, hire a babysitter so you can stay out late and soak in all the excitement of the big city.

Try a New Winter Sport

From downhill or cross-country skiing to snow shoeing, ice skating or whizzing down the mountain on a tractor tube, fun in the snow can revitalize any relationship. If you’re new to living a cold-weather climate, take advantage of the fantastic opportunity to broaden your horizons and experience a new winter sport.

Date Night? How about a Date Weekend?

Sometimes a weekend away is just what the doctor ordered. Rent a cabin in the mountains or hop a cheap flight to a warm-weather destination.

The Ultimate Bake Off

The holiday season is a time for piping hot pies, festive cookies, fudge, candies and other sweet treats. They say that the couple that bakes together, stays together. Prove it with a delicious bake off.

Each of you can choose a new (or favorite) recipe and vote on a winner at the end of the night. Loser does the dishes!

(Or you can practice your teamwork and do both the baking AND the dishes together.)

Tired of the Winter Cold?

The easiest way to plan for a winter date night is to move to where it never gets cold! Check out our home finder to discover all the wonderful places where Taylor Morrison builds.

Or, head straight to the source of warm winter nights at Estero Pointe in Fort Myers, Florida.  Life in Fort Myers doesn’t require mittens and stocking caps and all you need to do for a fun night out is set your GPS on the fabulous River District. Then again, as home of the popular Trevi plan, you might just want to cuddle up in your luxurious owner’s retreat and watch Netflix.
