Eight great winter dates


Although the holidays are over, the winter festivities have only just begun! Check out these adorable date ideas for you and your significant other to experience together!

1) Ice Skating

For the couples adventurous enough to break out the skates in the cold, ice skating will be sure to create laughs and memories.  Dress with layers and head down town to Milwaukee County’s Red Arrow Park.  Home to Slice of Ice this outdoor refrigerated rink will accommodate 100 skaters at a time.  The rink is 128-by-95 feet of refrigerated oval.  The rink is bordered by a 3-foot-6-inch railing, so even if you’re not a skater, you can still come out to enjoy the ice.  Inside the warming house, there are floor-to-ceiling windows.  Or you and your date can overlook from the rooftop at the great (and probably entertaining) view of what’s happening on the ice.  Skate Rental has skate sizes that range from toddler size 8, to women’s size 11 and men’s size 14

Age 18 & Up: $8/pair*

Age 17 & Under: $7/pair*

*price listed includes tax

2) Go to a Sporting Event Together

For the many young couples who are big fans of sports, a great date could be going to a basketball or hockey game. Check out the BMO Harris Bradley Center Milwaukee, WI for events!

3) Sled Together

Bundle up and pack a thermos with hot chocolate because you’re going sledding!  Grab a tube or toboggan and head for the hills!  Places to sled in New Berlin include: Valley View, Arthur Park, Pickle Pond, Calhoun park and many others!

4) Volunteer Together

Help out the community by giving your time to your local church or a cause both of you are passionate about.  Or you can stop by the New Berlin Food pantry on Wednesday nights (3:30-5:30).  Make a difference in your relationship and other peoples lives.

5) Make a Gingerbread House

If you’re up for the challenge run to the local store and buy a gingerbread house kit. It’s a little complicated but supper fun!
