Over the course of a relationship, date nights go through many stages: from romantic and adventurous to cheap and stuck-in-a-rut.  We’ve all been there! It’s hard to carve out that extra time on a regular basis for each other but having fun, trying new things, connecting and quality time are all necessary for a successful relationship.

So, whether your relationship is new or you have been together for a while, these are refreshing and fun ideas that you can enjoy together throughout the year! Do you have an idea for our list? Email it to northeastwiactivities@gmail.com.
