Another fun date night idea for Smithfield Implement would be to get matching cowboy hats. They will personally fit you to ensure you get the correct size.

Take the scenic drive up Logan Canyon to gorgeous Tony Grove Lake. It’s a beautiful spot to canoe, kayak, or paddleboard. I know because I enjoyed doing this with my man when we were dating. There’s a walking trail around the lake, but the real fun is to explore the mountainside 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.
(Update – I’ve heard that they’ve recently drained Tony Grove Lake for maintenance. Check before you go to make sure you can access it.)

22 – 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.
