Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or romancing up a free weekend, when you stay at any of the Lake Chelan resorts, you’ll find hidden pockets of romance in every corner. Whether it’s your first date or your 85th, here are five date ideas that will help you break from clichés and spice things up a bit.
1. Wine Tasting
If you read our last post, you know that Lake Chelan is definitely not lacking when it comes to wine. With fun wine tasting events throughout the year, why not start off by celebrating the month of love this Valentine’s Day at Red Wine and Chocolate? Over the next two weekends, Lake Chelan will buzz with couples on romantic getaways savoring creamy chocolate truffles and smooth red wines at various Lake Chelan wineries. It’s the perfect excuse to come relax and spoil yourselves with all things love.
Lake Chelan provides the perfect escape into nature for some quality one-on-one time while soaking in picturesque views. With the towering evergreens, majestic peaks, and sapphire blue lake, can you imagine a more beautiful place to get outdoors with the one you love? Whether you’re in for a short stroll or a lengthy trek, check out this page to decide which hike is perfect for you. So lace up your hiking boots and hit the trails for an exciting and romantic date!
You can never go wrong with the classic meal out for two, especially when Lake Chelan abounds with fabulous restaurants and world-class cuisine. While you could choose a swanky restaurant, why not embrace something unique to Manson, like family-owned and operated Blueberry Hills? At farmhouse-style Blueberry Hills, you’ll first get to pick your own blueberries (when in season), then indulge in Mom’s delicious homemade burgers, dips, waffles, fresh fruit pies, and more. Abundant with fun and unique restaurants, Lake Chelan is the perfect place to spice up your usual dinner date.
4. Adventure activities
If dinner and a movie are too cliché, bring the fun back into your relationship with a little adventure. From skiing and snowboarding, kayaking, waterskiing and wakeboarding, horseback riding, and more, Lake Chelan features so many adventure activities you’ll have a tough time choosing. So before heading in to relax, grab your partner and go get your adrenaline pumping with some of the active adventures surrounding Lake Chelan.
If Titanic’s cruise through the rough Atlantic Ocean was romantic, then a cruise along the crystal clear waters of Lake Chelan through Washington’s untouched wilderness is even better. For a stunning cruise, check out the National Geographic “must-do” Lady of the Lake, which will take you the entire length from Chelan to Stehekin and back. Let the romance flow as you glide along the 55 miles of sapphire blue into the remote Upper Lake Chelan region, which is unspoiled by civilization.
