8 Romantic Date Ideas in the Olde English District

Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. But why not celebrate the holiday throughout the year? 

We’re here to tell you that you don’t have to wait for February or a special occasion to take a romantic trip. That’s why we have rounded up several date ideas in the Olde English District for your next romantic getaway.   

1. Snuggle Up on a Horse Drawn Carriage

Nothing quite screams “fairytale date” like a ride on a horse-drawn carriage. Dream Carriage & Special Events in Chester County offers rides for weddings, anniversaries, special events and other romantic occasions. 

2. Escape to a Cozy B&B

Four Oaks Inn is an 1860s bed and breakfast just a few miles from the charming downtown Camden. Enjoy the setting of a quiet, tree-lined street, the two-acre grounds and a full sit-down breakfast in the mornings. In the summer, the gorgeous outdoor pool is perfect for unwinding. The inn also features several nooks throughout, making the coziest corners to enjoy a glass of wine and good conversation.

5. Enjoy an Immersive Dining Experience in Rock Hill

A meal at Kounter in downtown Rock Hill is a unique experience, perfect for sharing with a loved one. Menu items are made using fresh ingredients and are creatively presented. Start the night with craft cocktails such as Rose Colored Glasses — a smoky and sweet mezcal beverage — or a couple of Pear Martinis. Dig into one of the many shareables like the Smoking Tuna Poke, order a few entrees and end the night with something sweet.

6. Grab Coffee and Stroll the Greenway

Nature and a cup of coffee — there’s something special about this duo. When in Lancaster, stop by Daily Grind Coffee Bar for fresh coffee, a delicious specialty drink and maybe a pastry or two (or four). Once you have your coffee in hand, hop in the car for a short drive to Lindsay Pettus Greenway. Sip your beverages, admire the local art that dots the trail and enjoy good conversation while strolling the two-mile greenway surrounded by nature.
