CHARLOTTE, NC - JANUARY 22: A general view of Bank of America stadium in the skyline of Uptown Charlotte in the snow on January 22, 2016 in Charlotte, North Carolina. A major snowstorm is forecasted for the East Coast this weekend with some areas expected to receive up to 1-2 feet of snow.

A Charlotte winter may make you want to just snuggle up on the couch and not move…but whether you are in a relationship or dating, a date may be hard to avoid. There are so many cute winter date ideas that you and your boo should try out this season. Here are the ones that are fun and relationship expert-approved and where you can do them in Charlotte!

  • Take a cooking class

    This has actually been something on my bucket list and I’m definitely going to try and plan this date. Here are two places that I’ve heard great things about in the Charlotte area.

  • Build a snowman

    This might be a little hard to do if you live in the metro Charlotte area. BUT there are plenty of driveable getaways from Charlotte that can make this a reality for you. Here are some of my favorite weekend (or even day) trips:


    -Beech Mountain

    -Blowing Rock

    -Banner Elk

    -Great Smoky Mountains National Park


    -Wintergreen Resort, VA

    -Snowshoe, West VA

  • Go sledding

    If we’re being honest I can’t remember the last time I went sledding just because it snowed so much and that was an option. It’s been at least a decade. But, lucky for people now there are actual snow tubing and sledding spots all around North Carolina.

    -Hawks Nest Tubing

    -Wolf Tube at Wolf Ridge

    -Sapphire Valley

    -Scaly Mountain

    -Moonshine Mountain

    -Jonas Ridge Snow Tubing

    -Beech Mountain

    -Sugar Mountain

    -Maggie Valley Snow Tubing
