Spring Date Night Ideas at Station Park in Farmington

Have a Picnic on the Green Space by the Fountains

I love sitting by the fountains during the warmer months, watching kids run around and families spend time together. Grab food from one of your favorite restaurants in the area and lay out a picnic on the “grass” between the fountains and the movie theater. Waffled, Madbrook Donuts and Farmington Franks are all great picnic food options around the fountains.

Oil and Vinegar Tasting at Redstone Olive Oil

If you’ve never visited Redstone Olive Oil, you’re missing out on a fun experiences! Redstone has a wide variety of olive oils and balsamic vinegar in their store. They allow you to create a combination and taste it before buying. They also sometimes host fun chocolate fountain events and if you follow them on social media you’ll find out when those are. On the back wall of the store you’ll find fresh and healthy recipes that you can purchase to take home and make with your new oils and vinegar.

Grab the Date Night Deal at Dough Co.

Dough Co. just opened at Station Park, over in the same building as Blaze Pizza, on the west side of the parking lot. Every Thursday you can get a large, shareable half baked for the price of an individual. It’s a great deal for a mid-week date!

Try Out a New Restaurant

There are so many new restaurants that have opened at Station Park in the last few months and even more coming soon! Whether you’re looking for something quick and budget friendly or want to splurge for your date night, you’ll find a variety of cuisine to enjoy! Visit Station Park’s website for a list of all of their dining options.

Make it a Mid-Week Morning Date

Have you ever been to Station Park on a weekday morning? I stopped by last year to grab a treat and it was quiet and a great place to relax. Stop by Waffled for one of their stuffed breakfast waffles or grab a drink from Fiiz, then sit at one of the tables around the fountains and enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful spring weather.

Stroll Around the Mall While Enjoying a Pretzel

On the block north of Fountain Square, there’s a Pretzelmaker. Stop by for a sweet or salty treat and your favorite cold drink. Rather than sitting to eat, enjoy your snack on the go. Wander around the mall, peeking in windows and making note of places that you want to be sure to visit in the future.

Spring Activities  Farmington, Utah

Spring Date Ideas in Davis County

Take a walk or go fishing at the USU Botanical Gardens - My office is located in the middle of the botanical gardens and I can’t help but admire the gardens every time I drive through. This week when I was there, I saw two pelicans in the middle of the pond and a family of ducks on the other side of the bridge, swimming and diving for food. There is wildlife everywhere and the paved paths make the gardens a great place to stroll and talk. There is also a lot of space to fish, and I see people there all the time with their poles.

Go on a hike - A lot of hiking trails in the area are still covered in quite a bit of snow, thanks to the awesome moisture that we received this winter. I’ve seen people hiking Adams Canyon in the last couple of weeks, and there’s a great trail in Nicholls Park in Fruit Heights. You could even “hike” on one of the many nature trails on the west side of Davis County.

Try a new restaurant at Station Park - Station Park has welcomed some great new restaurants to the area over the past couple of months and all of them are worth trying! Slap Fish and Dough Co. are located over by Blaze Pizza. Sicilia Mia is just east of the movie theater and Santorini’s Greek Grill is over by Cafe Zupas. There’s also a new hot dog restaurant, Farmington Franks, in the food court pavilion west of the fountains. You can’t go wrong no matter where you decide to eat at Station Park, but if you’re looking for something you might not have tried before, these are some great options to start with.

Take a tour of your town - Do you know everything that your town has to offer? Are their museums? Mom and pop restaurants you’ve never tried? Historical locations? Trails or nature areas that you didn’t know existed? Pull up Google maps and scan your town for things you might want to check out or see. Look up sites on the county’s historical registry, then go out and explore and learn new things about where you live!

Chalk art festival - The Bountiful Chalk Art Festival has quickly become one of our favorite traditions each year. For an entire week, you can stroll down both sides of Main Street and enjoy watching local artists create their drawings and then marvel at their talent after they’re all completed. This event takes place each May and is really a lot of fun! We suggest stopping at one of the many great, locally owned restaurants on your route for a bite to eat while you’re out.

Go biking on Legacy Trail - Have you ever ridden the length of Legacy Trail in Davis County? The views are gorgeous and it makes a great date activity for spring. After you’re done riding the trail, stop at one of your favorite dessert places for a treat.

Mini golf - Cherry Hill’s mini golf course opens the last week in March and is a really fun activity to enjoy for date night. You can find discount coupons in local mailers. Grab some hand pies from the Pie Pantry after you’re done playing a round or two together.

Worth the Trip

Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point - It’s a bit of a drive, but the Tulip Festival is stunning and worth the trip! You’ll find tulips in every color and great trails to walk.

Brunch at Top Golf - This will always be one of our favorite date activities, no matter the weather. We love playing at Top Golf and have come to love the food just as much as we love the venue.

Hogle Zoo - We love to go to the zoo when the weather has warmed up just a bit but it still cooler. The animals are more active and you don’t leave sweaty and sunburned.

Inexpensive Local Date Night Ideas

I shared these tips on Fox 13’s The Place today. I wanted to link to some of the date ideas mentioned in a place where people could find them after the show if they didn’t get a chance to write them down. Click here to watch the segment on Fox 13’s The Place.

One of the biggest reasons that couples note for not going out on dates together more often is their budget. We have young kids and understand how difficult it can be to find room in the budget to hire a babysitter and have money left to enjoy your time while you're out. Date night is a great way for couples to connect and make their relationship a priority throughout every stage of life so we hope to provide great ideas for date night that are less expensive and still just as fun.

inexpensive activities in utah

1. Grab appetizers or dessert instead of a full meal. A lot of restaurants have happy hour when appetizers and drinks are discounted. You can even make a meal of some things on the appetizer menu and share those for less than the cost of a full entree. Dessert only eateries are a great options as well. We love going to Last Course because the atmosphere is perfect for date night and they have options for everyone including gluten free and vegan desserts and ice cream flavors.

2. Look for deals on local activities. Trampoline parks, bowling alleys and other activity centers often have deals for date night. You can also find deals on websites like Groupon or in local coupon mailers. One of our favorite activities is nerf dart wars at Dartside in Layton. They have an adult hour every Saturday night where only 18+ are allowed in the arena and couples can get in at a discounted price. It's a fun way to stay active and young and have fun together.

3. Bring the escape room experience home. Escape rooms are a really popular activity right now, but they can be pricey. We discovered a local company, Lockbox Mysteries, whose crate rental is equivalent to one person's entry to a regular escape room. We love to get a group of two or three couples together and split the cost. The mysteries are really well thought out and we love to take on the challenge of solving them in an hour, but appreciate that by doing it at home, we can still continue on and solve the mystery, even if we don't hit our goal.

4. Enjoy free outdoor adventures together. Hiking is a great date night activity and an awesome way to explore new areas around you. The Wild Rose Trail in North Salt Lake is an easier trail and perfect for hiking to watch the sunset during warmer months. We also love geocaching because it keeps us active and is a scavenger hunt that we can enjoy together. There are great apps you can download to help you find caches in your area.

5. Catch a matinee or discount movie. For couples who love movie dates, going to matinees or taking advantage of discount days can dramatically decrease the cost of date night. We love to go to Cinemark theaters on Tuesday when tickets are just $5 all day. They also have recliners in all of their theaters so that's a bonus!

Whatever you choose to do for date night, I hope you find a way to make date night more of a priority in your relationship, regardless of what your budget looks like!

Gift Ideas

Valentine's gifts don't have to be the cliche stuffed animals, chocolate and flowers; unless that's what you like of course. I love to go beyond the usual and find gifts that will really mean something. With a romantic holiday like this one, I especially like to find a way to give the gift of love.

I'm always a fan of gifting date night to the one you love. Pick up a gift card for one of the places on your date night bucket list or a restaurant or activity in the area that you know your spouse has been wanting to try out. You could also plan out a date, something fun like a concert and dinner or even an overnight getaway and wrap up all of the elements of your date to gift them with on Valentine's.

I mentioned Beyond Spa as a date, but it's great as a gift as well. They have a lot of great "for 1" packages and specials as well as some great services that you can purchase gift cards for.

Winter Date Night Ideas at Station Park in Farmington

Ice Skating by the Fountains

Station Park has a fun little skating rink that’s open until early February and it’s a perfect activity for date night! Two hour skate rental is $6 for adults and if you pay with your America First Credit Union credit card or debit card, you can get half off that price.

Late Night Movie at Cinemark

Cuddling up at the movies is a great way to beat the cold weather. Cinemark recently upgraded all of their seating to luxury recliners, and it’s honestly more cozy than the couches we have at home. If you can get away on a weeknight, $5 Tuesdays is a great deal for a movie night. Grab popcorn, a drink and some concessions and cozy up together to watch one of the great movies that are out! We love bringing our own blankets to make our date a little more cozy.

Dessert at Last Course

Last Course has become one of my favorite places in the area for date night, girl’s night out and just when I need a little treat. They have a great core menu, delicious ice cream flavors and fun desserts and scoops on their creations menu that changes each month. I love the atmosphere at Last Course and it’s perfect for date night! We love adding it onto the end of our evening or making it the core activity of our date.

Dinner, Dessert or a Snack at Waffled

One of our favorite restaurants recently moved to the Eats & Treats building just east of the fountains at Station Park, and although we’re sad that it’s not by Smith’s still, closer to our house, it adds perfectly to one of our favorite date night locations. Waffled has savory stuffed waffles with soup that make a great meal, stuffed breakfast waffles and sweet waffles liege waffles that make a great treat. You can hang out inside where it’s warm or take your waffle out by the fountains under one of the heaters.

Grab a Bath Bomb from Lush

After we grab dinner at one of our favorite restaurants at Station Park, we like to wander the mall and window shop. One of our favorite stores to stop by is Lush. We love their bath bombs and find that they make a great addition to our date night. We spend some time browsing their many options, smelling them all, and then we pick one out and take it home. After the babysitter is gone, we climb into a warm bath and watch a movie together.

Drink Hot Chocolate by the Fountains

Winter is the perfect time for hot chocolate, and Station Park’s fountains have heaters around them. I love being able to enjoy the fountain shows and the music without getting too cold. We enjoyed this as part of our date night last winter and it was perfect for a warm cup of hot chocolate and some quality conversation.
