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

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.

I love this adult night promotion that Dartside has going on for a lot of reasons.

It’s a fun way to extend your date

Do you ever finish your planned date night activities and find that you have extra time left to fill? A lot of couples will hire a babysitter to tend until 10 or 10:30pm and other couples who don’t have kids yet or have kids old enough to be responsible for themselves have no “curfew”. When your date night ends earlier than you thought, you could head to the grocery store or go home and watch a couple episodes of your favorite TV show. But what if instead, you headed to Dartside for an hour of fun?

It’s great exercise

During your hour of play time at Dartside, you’ll find yourself running back and forth, crouching behind walls and doing everything possible to stop yourself from getting hit by nerf darts. Games move a lot faster when you are playing with only adults so you won’t spend much time standing around. We were sweating running back and forth across the arena and our legs were sore the next day from spending so much time hiding behind barricades in a squatting position. Playing at Dartside is a great way to get in an hour of physical activity together and a lot more fun than the gym.

It’s a great group activity

We’re looking forward to putting together a few groups of our friends and family and going to play and compete for an hour after we’ve grabbed dinner or dessert. I love that this is an activity we can all enjoy together and that it brings out the competitive side in everyone. Our group on Saturday included siblings and their spouses and they had a lot of fun running back and forth, shooting at each other with nerf guns. Dartside is a budget friendly and fun activity for groups of any age and size.

We’ve added all of Dartside’s future Adult Nights to our Upcoming Events calendar and will continue to add more if they extend them past May. You’ll find us at Dartside at least one more Saturday night over the next couple of months. Whether you were able to join us on Saturday or not, I hope you’ll support a locally owned business and get out and do something a little fun and different for date night on Saturday nights!

We look forward to nerf dart wars with each other over the next few months.

Burly Burger in South Weber

I’ve mentioned before that we tend to stick to south Davis County when we’re going out to eat. It’s the area that we’re most familiar with, and what we both grew up doing. I made a goal this year to explore restaurants in more of northern Davis County and we started the year out about as far north as we could go! If you haven’t heard about Burly Burger yet then you’ve probably been hiding under a rock because I swear we were one of the last people to go. Burly Burger has been all over social media and we’ve been wanting to try it out! I’m happy to be one of those people who have experienced its greatness so I can share it with you!

Where: Burly Burger (2572 E South Weber Dr, Ste 4, South Weber)
Cost: Plan on about $10 per person when you order a burger, fries and a drink or a shake

I spent a lot of time drooling over the menu online before we went on our family date to Burly Burger. And even though I’d prepared ahead of time, it was still hard to pick the one thing off of that menu that I most wanted to eat that day. Every single thing on that menu sounds so delicious and watching everyone’s food come to their tables while we were there, it all looks and smells just as delicious. I knew what my husband would order before I’d decided what I was going to order.

The Swanson Burly Burger Menu

My husband ordered The Swanson, named after one of his favorite TV characters. It comes loaded with bacon and an egg and he said it was just as good as he imagined it would be. I think he also debated ordering the Mr T (pastrami burger) and The Duke (onion rings and bacon) but I don’t think the decision was too hard for him. I ordered my favorite kind of burger, one with pineapple and teriyaki sauce (The Rock) and it did not disappoint. You know you have something good going when you can’t put your burger down after you start eating because it’s too messy and there’s a big pile of napkins next to your plate after you’re finished. Our kids got chicken tenders and the lil burly burger kids meals. We also ordered Battered Fries and a basket of Onion Rings to share.

The Rock Burly Burger Menu

If you asked our toddlers what the best part of dinner was, it wouldn’t be the food, it would be the fire. They were so intrigued by the flames that would flare up every so often from the grill. It was the best dinnertime entertainment and I credit that for how well they acted at the restaurant. My husband and I were entertained by the art on the walls. In addition to their floor to ceiling chalkboard menus, Burly Burger has a large wall covered in fun quotes and decorations that are unique and interesting. I wish we’d picked a different seat so that I could have looked at it more without having to twist in my seat and be so obviously staring in the direction of other people who were eating.

Burly Burger’s food is classic, delicious and uniquely theirs. The atmosphere of the restaurant is fun and friendly and inviting. The staff was wonderful and the owner stopped by each table to see how everyone’s food was and thank them for coming in! I hope that Burly Burger moves their restaurant to a bigger location soon because they are popular and the tables were constantly full, even when we arrived before 5pm. If they wanted to expand south, we wouldn’t complain about that either ;)

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.
