December comes and goes in a flash! Take advantage of the romantic snowy season and put these cute holiday activities on your couple to-do list.
1. Dress Up for a Show
Whether it's the Nutcracker or the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, take advantage of the formal season and get dolled up for a performance. Support the arts and dig around for a local show that strikes your fancy.
2. Volunteer Together
Help at a toy drive, a soup kitchen, a local church—nothing feels better than doing something good for the community side-by-side.
3. Take a Night Drive to See the Lights
Free and fun, feel like a kid again as you drive around the most lit up neighborhoods in your city.
4. Go to a Theme Park
Places like Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm turn their grounds into magical winter wonderlands this time of year. There really is no better way to get in the holiday spirit than seeing Mickey in a Santa hat.
5. Go Sledding
Bundle up in waterproof wear and venture to the nearest snowy heel. While you're at it, make a snowman and start a snowball fight.
6. Partake in Santa Con
Because dressing up as Santa while bar hopping sounds both hilarious and cozy.
7. Visit a Nearby Hotel
Resorts like the Ritz Carlton deck their halls in December and there's no need for a night's stay to enjoy the decor. Check out their calendar for things like afternoon tea—or hop on over for dinner, cocktails or (your pup's favorite) Yappy Hour.
8. Spend a Night or Two in a Cabin
If you're close to the mountains, check out VRBO and Airbnb for romantic weekend getaways. A fireplace is a must.
