Trying to find the perfect place to woo your new boo? (Excessive rhyming is probably not the best strategy.) Sometimes, a romantic spot is exactly the nudge you need to seal the deal for a new relationship. Here are fifteen places in Pennsylvania that are great for a first date.
1. Cherry Springs State Park
Some of the darkest skies in the eastern United States can be found at Cherry Springs, which makes it a haven for stargazers and lovers alike.
2. Philadelphia Art Museum Steps
The steps of the art museum are an American icon and they offer a splendid view of Independence Hall and the Philadelphia skyline. After impressing your date with your fine taste in art, going in for a kiss on the steps will steal their heart.
3. LOVE Park, Philadelphia
... No one ever said you had to be subtle.
4. Italian Market, Philadelphia
Before you commit to someone, you are going to want to be sure they have good taste in produce and salami. Grab some linguini for lunch at a local restaurant then steal a smooch as you wander among the market's many stands.
5. The Rose Gardens, Allentown
If you manage to get there on a day when there's no high schoolers taking prom pictures, the rose gardens in Allentown are the ultimate romantic spot to take your date.
6. Bogart's Covered Bridge in the Lehigh Valley Parkway
After a pleasant walk in the park, the covered bridge's shade will provide the perfect cover for a kiss.
7. Historic Bethlehem
Especially around Christmastime, the shops and streets in Bethlehem's historic district offer a beautifully romantic backdrop for your date.
8. Bake Oven Knob at Hawk Mountain
The breathtaking view of the surrounding fields and mountains from the Bake Oven Knob lookout will inspire your partner's affection.
9. Glen Onoko Falls
Everyone knows that waterfalls are romantic.
10. Bushkill Falls
Here's another waterfall-type option.
11. Rickett's Glen
Pennsylvania has tons of beautiful waterfalls that are perfect backdrop's for a date. Hopefully when you go in for the kiss, your date doesn't start singing, "don't go chasing waterfalls..."
12. Downtown Pittsburgh Viewed From The Duquesne Incline
Check out that stunning view! The inclines in Pittsburgh are not only a must-do tourist attraction, but they offer the ideal setting for a first kiss.
13. Lock Ridge Park
Located in Alburtis, the stone architecture of Lock Ridge is a unique location to hang with your beau.
14. Presque Isle State Park
The mysterious deep waters of Lake Erie will lull you and your date into a romantic closeness.
This one's kind of in jest, but not really. Hunting and outdoors activities are Pennsylvania traditions-- your date might fall right into your arms if you take them to shop for some supplies.
There you have it. Best of luck, pucker up! What are your best first date locations in Pennsylvania?
