Top Date Ideas in Cumberland 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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
