Dine in the desert
Grab two seats at the long table with Cloth & Flame and dine in the desert among cacti and a gang of friendly folk who appreciate good food and the great outdoors. Diners can expect a multi-course meal and drinks prepared by a guest chef. The dinners are pricey, but there's no other experience like it.
Go horseback riding along the lower Salt River
Embrace your inner cowboy and romantic side and traverse cactus-dotted desert trails on horseback with your date. The experienced wranglers at Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch provide guided tours and a quick “how-to” before you saddle up. It's not cheap, but at $49/hour, it won't break your wallets either.
Have a drink at Arizona's only ice bar
Pull on a pair of faux fur coats and make your way into Scottsdale's ice bar, Polar Bar. This Scottsdale drinkery features an ice-carved bar, ice-clad walls, and we can only assume the drinks are cold, too. Hopefully your date will warm up to you, but play it cool with the ice puns just to be on the safe side.
