Date #1: The Classic Date Night

What is the first thing you think of when “classic” date night comes to mind? Dinner and a movie, of course! There are so many delicious restaurants nearby Woodmont West in Mt. Arlington. We recommend Blossom Asian Bistro if you are in the mood for fresh sushi and some wine. If Italian food is just what you are craving, then you must head over to Luzzi’s Hibernia Inn in Rockaway, for an expansive menu of delicious homemade Italian eats. For some upscale American comfort food, Tabor Road Tavern should be your go-to stop. After you and your special someone enjoy a romantic meal, head on over to the AMC Rockaway to watch any of the major box office films. After your date, bundle up and go on a nice stroll through the beautiful grounds of Woodmont West.


Date #2: The Date Night In

While most people think of date night as a night to hit the town, sometimes a date night inside is even more romantic. This, however, will take proper preparation to pull off! Start by planning a meal of some of your date’s favorite foods, including appetizers, entrée and of course – dessert! Find a pretty tablecloth to place on your dinner table, and top it with cloth napkins, candlesticks and maybe even an arrangement of flowers. Organize something for the two of you to do after dinner, whether that means dancing in the living room, having a game night or watching a classic movie you both loved during childhood. The extra thought and effort that goes into a date night in make for a special and memorable evening.


Date #3: For the Active Couple in Mt. Arlington

In Mt. Arlington, New Jersey, we are fortunate to be near so many beautiful nature preserves. If you are the kind of people that enjoy getting active, rather than sitting on the couch, then this is the date for you. We recommend a brisk winter hike in Kittatinny Valley State Park. It is February in New Jersey, so you will definitely want to bundle up before heading out for this excursion. Filled with glacial lakes, abandoned railroad tracks and limestone outcroppings, you will not believe the beauty and adventure within this park. When you are done exploring the area, head over to your favorite local coffee shop to warm up and continue the conversation.


Date Night #4: Get Creative

For the creative couple, or those who aim to create, we have an excellent date idea to get those creative juices flowing. Just 10 minutes from Woodmont West, you will find Uptown Art in Denville. Uptown Art offers a “paint and sip” class, in which you bring your own wine or beer to sip while an artist guides the class through a painting. The painting is step-by-step, making it easy for even beginners to create something they can bring home and hang proudly on his or her wall.
