Looking for a summer romance or planning an unforgettable date? Then Plymouth County is where you’ll want to visit, as there’s no shortage of wonderful activities you and your date can do as a couple. From good food and drinks to strolls through the gardens to a trip to the spa, love will be in the air.
Great dates include good food and 1620 Wine Bar on the Waterfront has a tapas menu that will leave you swooning. It has delicious plates for all tastes, from chicken parmesan sliders to braised short ribs to lemon garlic shrimp to fried ravioli. Share stories and a plate of flatbread with your date as you gaze into each other’s eyes.
Don’t forget the wine, of course! This restaurant has nearly 30 of their own award-winning 1620 Wines, as well as one of the longest wine lists on the south shore. If wine isn’t your drink of choice, the 1620 Wine Bar has a variety of creative signature cocktails, too.
A bouquet of flowers is nice but cut flowers don’t have the longest lifespan. If you want blooms that represent a long-term relationship, you’d best visit Heritage Museums & Gardens. You can walk hand-in-hand through the Gardens’ 100 acres of blooming perennials and annuals, trees, and shrubbery.
Calming, intimate, and beautiful, the Gardens are ideal for an afternoon date. In the summer you can appreciate the stunning Hydrangea Display Garden, where thousands of hydrangea show off their blue, pink, and purple petals. Wow your date with the rainbow of colors in the Donald Marvin Daylily Garden. Chat about your dreams for the future among the tranquil water features of the McGraw Family Garden of the Senses. It’s a stunning way to impress your flower-loving date.
The Company Theatre is the best place to take your date if you want to enjoy culture and live entertainment. Thousands of theater-goers across the south shore are dazzled every year by the award-winning shows the Company Theatre puts on. This includes five annual theatrical productions, four annual youth productions, and several annual celebrity and concert series. This means you and your date will surely find a show that suits both your tastes.
Buy a pair of extremely affordable tickets to a great performance and you and your date will be enthralled through the whole show. Once it’s over, you can grab some drinks to discuss the music, actors, sets, and overall experience, bonding over a shared love of the arts.
For a truly luxurious romantic outing, you should book a couple’s spa treatment at Spa Mirbeau at The Pinehills. Prioritize each other and bask in the chance to relax and unwind. It’s a fantastic way to spoil your significant other and enjoy alone time in a tranquil environment.
There are two couples packages you can choose from for a truly intimate experience. With the Mirabeau Signature Couples Massage package, you’ll lay side-by-side in a private spa room as you get a signature massage by the fireplace. It’s perfect for spending time with your sweetheart. For an even more intimate experience, splurge on the Art of Living package. Share strawberries and champagne while soaking in a custom aromatic bath in a private oversized soaking tub for two. When you’re ready to get out, make your way together to the massage table for an exfoliating and hydrating back scrub followed by a fireside massage.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for the romantic dates you can plan with your significant other. Plymouth County is full of restaurants, outings, attractions, and other amazing activities, so every couple will find something memorable that will write an unforgettable chapter in their life’s romance story.
