A Romantic Winter Date in Wisconsin Dells

What better way to chase away the winter blues than an entire date day in The Dells?

From getting cozy on the ski lift to a romantic candlelight dinner, we have the day all planned for you and your sweetheart to have the most romantic winter yet!

Your day together begins bright and early with breakfast at The Keg Downtown Dells. Share a stack of pancakes, some french toast, an omelet, or steak and eggs, whatever you two lovebirds desire! Don’t forget to add a few sides such as crispy toast, hearty bacon, or scrumptious hash browns. Eat up because you’re going to need your energy for the next item on the agenda.

Next, bundle up and hit the slopes! Head to Christmas Mountain or Cascade for some downhill fun; if you’ve never been skiing or snowboarding before don’t worry, both locations offer lessons. Once you’ve both achieved pro status, hop on the lift and snuggle together while enjoying a view of a beautiful Wisconsin winter before racing each other to the bottom and doing it all over again. Loser buys hot chocolate?!

In fact, that just happens to be next on the schedule. Fuel up after all that work by grabbing a cup of hot chocolate at the ski hill or one of the many restaurants in The Dells. (Keep an eye out for our hot chocolate blog coming out later this month.)  If you feel like you need an extra pick me up, many restaurants have specialty, hot, adult drinks. Hot chocolate with a dash of Rumchatta sounds delicious!

The two of you are bound to be tired and a little sore after skiing and/or snowboarding all day, it’s spa time! Many of the spas in The Dells offer couples massages as well as other treatments together such as facials, body wraps, and hot tub soaks. We suggest Sundara Spa or Spa Kalahari for the ultimate in relaxation and duo pampering.

End the day with a romantic candlelight dinner. Get cozy together at a table for two or in a corner booth as you watch the snowfall outside. For the most ideal atmosphere and incredible food, make a reservation at one of the steakhouses in The Dells such as: The Del-Bar, Field’s at The Wilderness, House of Embers or Double Cut. Each of these dining locations have extensive wine lists as well, so pick a bottle, share an appetizer and get ready to enjoy an incredible meal. Don’t forget dessert, a sweet ending to a wonderful day together!
