Valentines Date Ideas Around Lake Huron
It’s the time of the year again where everything spells romance. Most couples think of ways to spend time with each other and exchange tokens as symbols of their affection. Add to that the wintry season and it’s cuddle time or cozy moments all around. And yet, the patron saint from whom this day is supposed to be honored is quite forgotten. But we’re digressing.
For all the Michigander lovebirds out there who would like to make their Valentines extra special, we’ve come up with simple yet memorable ideas for you:
Whether you’re in Huron County or St. Clair region, Lake Huron has majestic views where lovers can catch the Sun in its glory, be it morning or evening. This seemingly everyday sight is truly an unforgettable experience when savored on a special day like Valentines.
It doesn’t mean that when it’s cold, the fish are gone! Entice your other half to go ice fishing together along the shores of Saginaw Bay. Who knows, you might catch a sturgeon or walleye for your lovely dinner!
Since we’re on the subject of dinner, spending a lovely evening while sharing delicious meals and a bottle of fine wine is a given in this day of hearts. Take advantage of this season since a lot of restaurants and bars offer Valentine’s Day specials to couples. You can reserve a table for two in one of the numerous dining establishments in The Thumb or Blue Water Area.
Very apt this winter season as there are many nature reserves like the Huron Meadows Metropark and resorts like the Alpine Valley Ski Resort that are open to Michiganders who would like to engage in winter outdoor sports with their partners or friends.
Euchre is a card game that is very much woven in the fabric of Michigan’s culture. For those who are dateless and spending Valentines with friends, this is the perfect day to trump your way to victory!
Hit the dance floor and channel your inner Patrick Swayze to impress your partner! The night is long and so is your time together. Some establishments and groups organize Valentine’s Day dance parties, particularly in Port Huron and Lexington.
