There's no rule that you have to always ‘do' something on date night/date day. In fact, sometimes just grabbing a coffee and doing NOTHING can be the perfect antidote to a stressful, busy week. So, now that spring has FINALLY sprung, here are five great places to grab a chair or plot of grass and just hang out for an hour or two.
Celebration Town Square – settle yourself into a rustic rocking chair on the shores of the lake… Starbucks and an ice cream shop are a stone's throw away!
Baldwin Park Village Center – find a bench near the lake and enjoy a Barnies latte or fries from Five Guys
Lake Eola Park – my personal favorite, paddling along in a swan boat.
Crane's Roost Park – there's lots of grassy spots in the shade on the north side of the lake. Make sure you bring some bread for the ducks!
Wekiwa Springs State Park – this glorious piece of paradise is only twenty minutes from downtown although you'll feel as though you've traveled hundreds miles outside of city.
