{Mid-Michigan} Date Night Ideas in Lansing

If you’re searching for ways to make date nights more special and interesting this weekend, look no further! Mid-Michigan has something going on for every couple’s preference and budget. Whether you’re looking to try a new restaurant, participate in some new hands-on activities with your partner (ahem- not those kinds of activities), or just enjoy some great entertainment, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of Mid-Michigan date night ideas to help you make some stellar plans.

Wine & Dine

In Lansing, eat at Capital Prime Steaks & Seafood or Knight Cap, if you’re in the mood for a candle lit, steak dinner. Other places worth checking out in the Lansing area:

  1. The Creole {Old Town}
  2. The English Inn { Eaton Rapids}
  3. Dusty’s Wine Bar {Okemos}

In East Lansing, visit Black Cat Bistro, Sansu Sushi or Swagath Indian Cuisine for a swanky and adventurous dining experience.

In Williamston, try fan-favorite Thai Nation Bistro. Visit either River House Inn or Red Cedar Grill for an upscale night out. Our favorite place to eat (so far) is Gracie’s Place. Derrick and I have been there twice now and we are looking forward to going back soon!

In Jackson, there’s no doubt you’ve got to see Sandhill Crane Vineyards for yourself! Craving pizza? The best in the Midwest can be found at Klavon’s. They are bringing a Klavon’s to the Mason area and we cannot wait!

With no shortage of breweries, wineries and distilleries, your date will have plenty of opportunities to buy you a drink! Celebrate your relationship by learning more about that beverage you both love so much. I promise you’ll have a lot of fun in the process.

Let’s Get Physical

At only $30 per couple and with no experience necessary, Valentine’s Day Partner Yoga at Hilltop Yoga in Old Town is a must-try! Skeptic or not, you’ll leave with a greater sense of intimacy and trust.

Try any of the partner classes at Creative Wellness, like Foot Reflexology for Partners or Partner Massage, and your significant other will thank you!

Out on the Town

Whether you’re into the music of the Five Irish Tenors, Big and Rich, or New Kids on the Block, you can find tickets to see them (and so many more artists) here. Find a slightly different line up of concerts heading to Williamston here. Want to keep it a little lower key? Grab your sweetie and head to Moriarty’s Pub in Lansing for Jazz Tuesdays.

While not until March, consider partying for a good cause at the Save a Life Soiree in Mason. Proceeds go to the Ingham County Animal Shelter.

Love all things art? There’s always something new and interesting to see at Lansing Art Gallery. You can even get creative yourself in one of their many adult classes, like Art & Ale. Check out Valentine’s Day-specific events, like the Couples’ Sign Workshop in Owosso, for a unique craft to do together.

For performance art, you’ve got to visit East Lansing Theater for a schedule of the best shows coming to town, like Black Violin and Cabaret. And don’t forget about the Wharton Center in East Lansing, where you will find a line-up of great musicals, Broadway shows, and concerts.

Fans of stand-up will like The Comedy Zone in Charlotte, or Comedy Coven and Connxtions Comedy Club in Lansing.

If you’re an active couple, sign up for Running 4 Love 5k and 10k in Lansing as the perfect afternoon date! Some of the proceeds will go to Heart to Heart, an organization that strengthens communities through improved health access.
