Candlelight Dinner And Night Hike
Enjoy a candlelight dinner at Lundstrom Park. You can pick up delicious Indian Food from Tandoori Oven. Then as the sun sets, go for a romantic hike on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail which you can access right from Lundstrom Park. You’ll get dazzling views of Logan City at night. After your romantic hike, go for a shake at Charlie’s Supreme Ice Cream. I highly recommend the Hot Fudge Brownie shake.

Go to the “A” that’s next to Old Main and smooch your date under a full moon. If your date’s not already a True Aggie, no worries, you can come on Homecoming or A-Day. Celebrate your new status with Aggie Ice Cream, because you’ve earned it.

Zootah is closed in the winter, except for Christmas-time when they put up Christmas lights. Tickets are $5.00, plus you’ll want to bring money for duck food. Crumb Brothers Artisan Bread is close by and would be an excellent place to pick up food for a picnic.

Sleigh Ride At Hardware Ranch
Get your cozy winter clothes on and prepare to cuddle up to your sweatheart on a sleigh to view and feed the elk at Hardware Ranch. It’s a beautiful drive up Blacksmith Fork Canyon that takes you to the ranch. Other things to do here include mountain men demonstrations and elk-calling classes (for real).

Canoe on Tony Grove Lake
Take the scenic drive up Logan Canyon to gorgeous Tony Grove Lake. It’s a beautiful spot to canoe, kayak or paddle board. I know because this is something I enjoyed doing with my man when we were dating. There’s a walking trail around the lake but the real fun is to explore the mountain-side around the lake and look for sinkholes. (This is actually one of my husband’s favorite things to do in the area.) Bring a really good light to look in the sinkholes. My husband’s favorite is this headlamp.

Soak At Crystal Hot Springs
My memory of Crystal Hot Springs is of my high school date ditching me here for a hot babe in a bikini, but chances are your date will go better. These Hot Springs are located 30 minutes outside of Logan in Honeyville, Utah, but the drive is worth it. You could also drive to Riverdale Resort in Preston, Idaho, or even further north to Lava Hot Springs. That drive will take 1 1/2 hours, but then after your soak you can go to Riverwalk Cafe, a fantastic Thai Restaurant in the town of Lava Hot Springs.
