BEST DATE SPOTS IN OMAHA
One of the best ways you can grow in your marriage and keep your love and friendship thriving is to intentionally plan a date night every week. Date nights are intended for you and your spouse to check in about the week, to dream and laugh together, and to create a routine of growing closer to one another.
THIS MEANS THE LOCATION OF YOUR DATE NIGHT MATTERS.
It’s hard to deeply connect and spend uninterrupted quality time if you are in a crowded or loud space, if you are uncomfortable or disengaged, and oftentimes if you are in your own home. Getting out of the house and finding a quiet, cozy space is so crucial for having a successful date night. Here are some of Omaha’s best spots for connecting with your boo: (And this can all be applied to you dating and engaged couples too!)
FOR DRINKS & VIBES
Whether grabbing a local beer at a no-frills brewery, or getting dressed up for a swanky cocktail bar, going out for drinks makes for a romantic date night. Will and I always “cheers” and take a moment to soak in and appreciate the present moment together. Bonus: grabbing drinks is a great option for when you want to eat at home, but still need to get out of the house free from distractions.
