27 Romantic Date Ideas For A Cold Day In Boston

And whether you’re getting into a new relationship or simply looking for new ideas, there are plenty of potential options for your next date night in Boston. Regardless of the weather outside, you’ll enjoy these 27 date night ideas all throughout the winter months.

1. Visit Seaport’s winter wonderland, Snowport

It’s (almost) the most wonderful time of the year, and what better way to cozy up to your date than to explore Snowport, the annual holiday festival in Seaport filled with fun and festivities? This year, Snowport will have a holiday market, food vendor stalls, winter games, and strings upon strings of holiday lights wrapped around Seaport. It’s a perfectly romantic and in-season option for a date night in November or December. Snowport will open on November 19, so plan in advance!

2-6. Enjoy a romantic candlelight concert

Is there anything more romantic than candlelight? We think not. The Candlelight concert series offers you all the musical beauty of classic concerts combined with a warm and romantic environment of twinkling lights. Whether your musical taste is more classical, like Vivaldi and Mozart, or more modern, like Queen, you and your partner will certainly enjoy this romantic musical experience.

7-13. Discover a hidden speakeasy

Looking for a new bar to visit? Boston is home to many underground speakeasies—some more hidden than others—that offer intimate and warm atmospheres to cuddle up in during a cold night. If you’re looking for a mysteriously romantic spot to hit in Boston, our list of 7 super-cool speakeasies should be on your radar.


14. Dine in a rooftop igloo

New Englanders don’t shy away from the cold weather—we embrace it! Which is why you should consider hanging out in an upscale igloo for your next night out. IWoods Hill at Pier 4 has set out nine beautiful igloos along the waterfront so you can still enjoy all the perks of outdoor dining in a safe and private environment without having to deal with the pesky freezing temperatures and snow.

15-20. Go ice skating at a local rink

Ice skating is a fun date idea whether you’re a total beginner or a skating pro.  It’s not quite cold enough right now to start skating, but by the end of November, you’ll be able to skate your heart out. Check out one of these six rinks when you get the chance!

21-26. Have some fun at an arcade bar

Looking for some fun without the freezing cold temperatures outside? Add some friendly competition to your next date night and hit an arcade bar or a ping pong venue. It’ll be an action-packed night of fun, plus a good reason to enjoy some tasty cocktails. Winner buys the next round!

27. Stargaze with top-notch telescopes at BU 

If you’ve ever wanted to take a closer look at the night sky above us, look no further than Public Open Night at Boston University’s Coit Observatory, located on top of the Physics Research Building. The dome-shaped addition on top might appear unassuming from the outside, but it is in fact home to top-notch telescopes that will let you stargaze like you never have before. Dress warm and bring your partner for an educational yet romantic night of stargazing.
