Planning a date can seem exhausting at the end of a long day or week. But date nights are important to feel more connected with your partner, your friends, or yourself. Hopefully, this list provides some inspiration to carve out that much needed quality time.

Smash-it Rage Room
Smash-it Rage Room provides a safe space to break things with a sledgehammer, because what says love more than communal rage? If you want an option that’s a little less aggressive, they also have paint rooms where you can splatter neon paint at the walls bathed in blacklight.
For a unique and silly staycation, spend a night at The Anniversary Inn. They have themed suites from the enchanted forest (with a bed carved out of four tree trunks) to jungle safari (with an elephant trunk for a shower). They’re located in Salt Lake City, Logan, and Boise.
Grab dinner at one of the many restaurants in Salt Lake City’s Chinatown, like One More Noodle House or Chick Queen. Then head over to the Chinatown Supermarket to pick up some snacks to sneak into a movie at the Cinemark.
May I Have This Dance?
City Cast Salt Lake lead producer Emily Means suggests the Utah Symphony: “I've been taking myself out on a date to the Utah Symphony for a decade. Can you believe we have a world-class symphony right here in Salt Lake City? Abravanel Hall is stunning; make sure to grab a photo in front of the Chihuly glass sculpture in the lobby (don't feel weird, everyone does it). I love attending their masterworks series, but their ‘films in concert’ series is so fun. Pro tip: If you're a student or under 30, you get a sweet discount on your tickets.”
