Lynchburg, Virginia. Boasting beautiful surrounding countryside and breath-taking historical architecture. But what is there to do for fun? It can seem a little daunting keeping things fresh in a relationship, especially finding new and exciting date venues to make memories and maintain that special bond. But dates are something you should both enjoy, and they don’t have to break the bank! There is no shortage in Lynchburg of activities for couples.
Lynchburg has a pretty buzzing nightlife, with literally hundreds of bars and dining establishments to suit all tastes and budgets. Thursday nights are Salsa night at Lynchburg Salsa on Jefferson street. Offering lessons for dancers of any skill from 8pm and Phase 2 on Murray Pl offers dining and live music.
Built along an abandoned railway bed, the Blackwater Creek trail stretches three miles along the river side and through some forest, a bit of nature without having to drive out of the city. The trail is paved and offers access for walkers, joggers and cyclists. A perfect activity on a beautiful summers day. The trail hosts thousands of visitors each year, but isn’t the only trail open and it intersects with the Kemper street and scenic Point of Honor trails. If you’re thinking of a biking excursion, there are bike trail maps available online and through tourist information points across the city.
If you’re keen on trying something a little different and offering more interactive opportunities, the Academy Center of the Arts is situated on main street and is a two part complex compromising of a theatre, music hall and performance arts center which has been undergoing renovations, and the Arts education building, which hosts a variety of classes including pottery, painting, photography, music and dance, to name but a few. A weekly class, learning and creating something new together is a wonderful way to solidify your bond and learn more about each other, even for those couples who have been together a lifetime. The theatre also regularly hosts productions so it’s worth registering with them to receive information about shows and tickets, or new creative opportunities that may be upcoming.
For a popular day out for families, the Putt Putt fun center just off of Timberlake road might be just the silly, recreational day out you and your partner need! It’s not just crazy golf. They have laser tag, go carts, games rooms, bumper boats and a choice of food and drinks. Getting in touch with your inner child and remembering how to play with one another and leave all the grown up stuff at home is actually an important mental exercise and has been proven to relieve marital tension and improve communication between couples. Also, it’s fun!
Dating and spending quality time together are integral to any relationship and it doesn’t always have to be something mind blowing or crudely romantic. These are just a few of the popular activities available in Lynchburg and we hope you will find more and share your experiences with others.
