It may be cold outside, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do with your significant other. If you’re looking to mix up the Netflix marathons, Omaha is a great city to explore even during the winter months. Check out our list of seven fun winter date ideas in Omaha.
1. Schedule a Spa Outing
2. Go Antique Hunting
Map out a route and get lost for an hour or two hunting for antiques together. Whether it’s for retro records, vintage furniture, or used books, Omaha has plenty of options for treasure hunting indoors. The Old Market and The Antique Annex are a good start to get lost for the afternoon.
3. Catch a Show
Winter is peak theater season and the best time to get dressed up and catch a show. The Orpheum Theater and Holland Performing Arts Center offer a variety of top entertaining shows throughout the year. For a more intimate setting, the Omaha Community Playhouse is another fun option.
4. Go Ice Skating
Ice skating and hot cocoa practically scream winter date. The University of Nebraska Medical Center sets up an outdoor ice skating rink every year. For indoor ice skating options, the new Grover Ice rink or the Motto McLean Ice Arena both offer open skate sessions through the winter months.
5. Go Sledding
Dust off that sled in your garage (or pick up a shiny new plastic one) and hit the snowy hills for some winter fun. Check out this list for some of the best slopes in the Omaha area.
6. Test Out Your Trivia Skills
An outing to a local bar or restaurant to play some trivia is a great option to curb any awkward silences. The Slowdown, Local Beer, Patio & Kitchen, and the Dudley’s Pizza & Tavern all host trivia nights.
7. Share a Laugh
A comedy show is a great way to warm up from the cold with some serious laughs. The Backline and Funny Bone Comedy Club host a variety of comedy shows throughout the winter months and the snug space is ideal for date night.
