6 Things To Do During A Marion Romantic GetawayFebruary 15, 2019
What does it take to be a romantic destination?
Just a few simple but oh-so-necessary characteristics: cutesy, delicious, beautiful.
Marion County has these in mawkish abundance! Prepare yourselves for the most memorable – and the most Marion – of romantic getaways!
Brunch for two
Have an adorable brunch for two at Little Red Hen. The French country decor plus the sticky bun, the quiche, the croissants make this the perfect couples’ brunch outing.
A stroll for two
Pricketts Fort State Park has lovely strolling capabilities from the fort to the rail trail. Enjoy the romance of simplicity in 18th-century life and the beauty that nature has to offer all in the same place.
A fall for two
Valley Falls State Park is a serene couple’s mini-retreat from the rest of the world. Talk about life, love and everything in between in the arms of the one you love. Did I mention Valley Falls is also the place for couples pictures? (I’m pretty sure it’s a requirement to even be a couple.)
Something new for two
Here’s a piece of unsolicited relationship advice: Never stop making new memories together. Do something new and different like a pottery-making class! Try your hand at mugs, pots, gnomes and more at Joe n Throw.
If you’d rather paint than sculpt, Mountain Creative has all the pre-sculpted pieces you can think of and all the paint colors you didn’t know existed!
Two gelatos… to share
Of all the frozen desserts, gelato is definitely the most romantic. Let’s all be honest: love is sweet but gelato is sweeter. I’d say to share one, but I don’t even love someone that much. So go ahead and get your own gelato at Colasessano’s as you and your schnookums fall deeper in gelato. Oh oops! Did I say gelato? What I meant was love.
Love on the flight
If your love and taste buds are even more adventurous than that, you can’t get more romantic than Mountain Dragon Mazery’s honey wine. It’s made with roses, West Virginia wildflowers and local honey.
