Looking for fun date night ideas with your significant other, while staying close to home? Here are some of our favorite local date night ideas. Whether you prefer a quiet indoor dinner or exciting outdoorsy activities, there’s something for everyone on this list:

1.  Stable Rock Winery & Distillery (Jefferson)

Escape the daily grind as you overlook the Rock River or kick back on the deck and sip flights of wine or distilled spirits whose labels like “Horse Thief” and “Blacksmith’s Trio” are inspired by the rich German history of Jefferson.

2.  Breathe Salt & Sauna (Johnson Creek)

Let the world around you fall away as you relax together in a cozy infrared sauna with chromotherapy followed by the tranquility of the salt therapy room.

3.  Southern Wakes United Water Ski Shows (Whitewater)

Dine downtown and then head over to Whitewater Lake to marvel at the talent of the award-winning water skiing athletes.

4.  Kiss My Axe (Watertown)

Release your inner lumberjack and try your hand at the fun new sport of axe throwing.  Visit The Bar before or after throwing.

5.  The Fireside Dinner Theatre (Fort Atkinson)

Culinary creations and exquisite entertainment that rival that of any big-city dinner theatres right in the heart of a quaint midwest community.  A date-night bucket list must!
