In the spring, it’s the Derby. Summertime has Forecastle. And as fall approaches, we have a couple of big events, like Bourbon & Beyond as well as Louder Than Life. But what are you supposed to do for date night the rest of the year, especially in late autumn and early winter (aside from watching the best new shows on Netflix, of course)?
Although the temps will drop, Louisville is a place where there’s always something to do, even when the skies are gray and the birds are down south. And to that end, we've amassed a list of some great date ideas around Louisville that are perfect for the season.
One of Louisville’s great getaways for fun is out in the east end of town. Take in a rom com at the adjacent Xscape Theaters, then head to the Main Event for bowling, laser tag, mini golf, food, video games -- you name it. It will be a romantic -- and well, sweaty -- day to remember.
Get all sticky sweet with a candy shop tour
You may not be aware that Louisville is a pretty sweet city -- in terms of the number of places you can go to rot your teeth. Take a tour and share some sweets with your sweetie, starting in Jeffersonville at historic Schimpff’s Confectionery, then make your way to another local classic, Muth’s Candies, Cellar Door Chocolates, and the Sweet Spot Candy Shoppe.
