Date Night in the Valley
Whether you are passing through the Valley for the evening or ready to uncover hidden gems in your backyard, we have a date night suggestion for you!
Just Playing Around
Engage in some friendly competition with a game of mini-golf on one of two courses at Carlisle Sports Emporium. Whether you go for the castle or the western theme is up to you. The perk of this date? The loser buys ice cream at a downtown Carlisle staple, Massey's Frozen Custard!
Laugh Out Loud
This twist on the classic date includes a great dinner in an authentic Irish setting at Coakley's Restaurant and Irish Pub, and a three-act stand-up comedy routine at the Harrisburg Comedy Zone.
Enjoy the View
A short, .18-mile hike will reward you and your date with an inspiring view of the Valley from a rock outcropping at Waggoner's Gap Hawk Watch. Pack a romantic lunch to enjoy at the picnic area located before the rock outcropping. Please follow Leave No Trace practices!
This is sure to be a date you won't forget! Spend the day zipping down the picturesque mountainside on zip lines, skies or a snowboard and enjoying the natural beauty of the Valley at Roundtop Mountain Resort.
Murder Mystery Weekend (October-April)
Arrive at Allenberry Resort Inn & Playhouse on Friday night, and be prepared to be wined, dined, and entertained with drama, dance, music, mystery and murder. Solve the crime at brunch on Sunday, and then return home safe and sound.
Enjoy traditional Italian cuisine in a garden setting at Trattoria Piatto before catching a show at the art-deco Carlisle Theatre. Finish with a Nutella filled crepe at Helena's Chocolate Cafe & Creperie for a European flair.
Take a Cruise
Board the Pride of the Susquehanna for a sunset dinner cruise along the scenic shores of the Susquehanna River. This is by far the best view of the Harrisburg skyline!
Explore the Shore
Explore nature as you paddle along in a kayak, canoe or paddle boat on beach-front Laurel Lake in Pine Grove Furnace State Park. Stop at Twirly Top for a nostalgic dinner and classic ice cream treat!
