4 Romantic Things to Do in Atlanta that Enchant the Heart
Looking for something romantic to do on your next trip to Atlanta? Check out this list for the best romantic experiences in the city.
Atlanta may not be the first romantic destination to pop into your mind, but it is definitely time to change that. Whether you are an Atlanta local or you are going to be in town visiting during a special time of the year—such as your anniversary, honeymoon, or Valentine’s Day—check out these four incredible romantic solutions to a date night in the big city of Atlanta.
Go a little old-school with your romantic rendezvous by signing up for a couple’s dance lesson. There are several different dance studios located throughout Atlanta, all of which provide their own unique flair for teaching you and your lover how to boogie. For a touch of elegance, sign up for a waltz lesson and learn how to flow gracefully through a ballroom together. Or, opt for a hot and sexy tango lesson that will leave you both wanting more. For a really romantic experience, try a bolero lesson.
I recommend Planet Ballroom for your romantic dancing lesson. They offer a little of everything, from Latin to ballroom dances and everything in between. If you call ahead, they are happy to go over some explanations of the dances with you on the phone, or you can check out their web site to choose the dancing style that is best for you and your partner. Sign up for your time and arrive for your private dancing lesson!
Sign up for a wine tour and treat your beloved to a relaxing day trip to the best wineries Georgia has to offer! Tours leave from Atlanta and will whisk you and your lover away to several of your choice of wineries in the surrounding Georgia countryside. At each stop, you’ll have about an hour to tour the winery and sample the offerings, as well as to pick up any tasty bottles you’d like to bring back with you. Wine is a very romantic drink anyhow, perfect to drink luxuriously with a lover, and a wine tour can be a fun and exciting date adventure.
Sign up for a tour with Georgia Wine Tours and you won’t be sorry. Tours leave at about 10:30 in the morning on your scheduled date, and you have the ability to visit about four wineries in your day before returning to Atlanta around 6:30 that evening. With Georgia Wine Tours, you can choose your wineries from Montaluce, Frogtown Cellars, Three Sisters Vineyards, Cavender Creek, Wolf Mountain, The Cottage, Yonah Mountain, and Habersham.
If both you and your partner are intrepid adventure-seekers, why not spend your Atlanta date on a canoe trip? Sign up for a canoe tour of the Chattahoochee River and you will be assigned to a river tour guide who can answer all of your questions and keep you safe, as well. If you’ve never canoed before,the Chattahoochee Nature Center will give you the rundown on how to use your equipment. And, if you’re an old pro, you won’t have to worry with being bored through a lesson in everything you already know how to do.
Depending on the time of the year, you may be able to join a large group tour of the river that focuses on a specific sight to see—fall foliage, for example. However, if you prefer to take your tour in private (with just a tour guide along for the ride), you can call at least one week ahead of time and arrange a trip for two.
There’s something definitely romantic about sleeping in the open air, under the stars, suspended from the trees. This incredible treehouse is actually a suite consisting of three separate treehouse-style rooms connected by swinging bridges. The rental is owned and operated by two residents of Buckhead, an affluent Atlanta neighborhood, and can be rented out via AirBnB.
The beautifully-decorated treehouse suite is very secluded and private but still located close to the city itself. If you plan to stay here, be sure to book well ahead of time, as it fills up for months very quickly.
Bring some spice back to date night by exploring everything the romantic side of Atlanta has to offer. Whether you’re the outdoorsy type or just want to spend time learning something new with your lover, Atlanta is sure to have just what you need for your romantic getaway.
