Best dates in Ohio

What are some fun day dates in Ohio?

What do you get when you combine a charming castle with a scenic kayaking excursion? One of the best day dates in Ohio, that's what! So what is this royal adventure, you ask? The Castle Adventure with Loveland Canoe & Kayak is a five-mile excursion where you'll get to paddle right by the stunning Loveland Castle! An easy kayaking trip, intrepid explorers will meet at Loveland Canoe & Kayak, where they'll be checked in, outfitted with life vests, and then transported to the launch point at Carl Rahe Park. This portion of the Little Miami River is calm and generally not too deep, making for a relaxing paddling adventure for beginners and seasoned pros alike. About halfway through, the castle will come into focus; it's so beautiful, it doesn't seem real! Along the way, there are lots of banks and beautiful spots to stop and enjoy a swim or picnic, which, if you ask us, sounds like a super romantic way to spend a beautiful Ohio day with your special someone!

Another super romantic spot to spend the day (or weekend!) is German Village, a slice of the Old Country in Columbus, Ohio! This unique locale in Ohio features charming, locally-owned shops, housed in historic brick and Tudor-style buildings, all in a walkable downtown. Restaurants serving the best, most amazing German cuisine: sausage and sauerkraut, schnitzel and dumplings, cream puffs and stollen, and some of the best brews in the Buckeye State! This neighborhood is as romantic as it gets, and the perfect place to wander hand-in-hand!
