Offbeat Valentine’s Day Dates in Dayton
If you’ve done the dinner and a movie date a thousand times and want something different for you and yours this Valentine’s Day, why not start by relaxing with some Valentine’s Couple’s yoga? Want something a little more pulse-pounding? Participate in the It’s Not Valentine’s Day 5k in Dublin or the Middletown Street Striders Sweetheart Shuffle.
Still thinking a meal fits the bill? Save your dollars for the flowers and candy and take your sweetie to Waffle House or White Castle. For Waffle House, the Beavercreek and Vandalia locations are participating in this twist on the traditional dinner date from 5 to 9 pm and reservations are required. Craving a White Castle Valentine’s? You’ll need to head to Cincinnati and call ahead; the restaurant requires reservations.
Take your Valentine’s to a fun level with the Valentine’s Tea Dance at Always Ballroom Dance Studio. You can saunter over to the other side of the activity spectrum and do a Couples Soldering Night at Proto Build Bar.
