Get outdoors to enjoy lakeside views and dining al fresco when you pack a picnic and spend an afternoon at Lake Atalanta, just east of Downtown Rogers. Spread out a picnic blanket or find a spot at one of the plentiful picnic tables. After a leisurely lunch, go for a walk with your love on one of the paved pathways or nature tails.

For an even more adventurous date idea, explore Northwest Arkansas on bicycle, and pedal your way along the Fayetteville Ale Trail to discover some locally brewed craft beers. From sipping a Blonder American Blonde Ale at West Mountain Brewing Company in Fayetteville to a sampling an Onyx Coffee Stout at Ozark Beer Company in Rogers to trying an Arkansas Farmhouse Ale at Saddlebock Brewery in Springdale, there’s plenty of tastes to savor on your journey.

At Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, get the best of the indoors and the outdoors. Explore centuries of American masterworks in the comprehensive galleries and exhibits, and then head outdoors to wander the nature trails, including the beautifully landscaped Art Trail, where outdoor sculptures provide artistic inspiration along your walk.

For foodies craving a delicious meal to share with their beloved, make a reservation at one of the numerous romantic restaurants in Rogers. Fill up on ahi tuna, fresh scallops, grilled salmon and more at Crabby’s Seafood Bar & Grill or Bonefish Grill. Meanwhile, juicy steak and robust wines are the draw at upscale spots such as Mister B’s Steakhouse and Theo’s Rogers. For a contemporary twist on Arkansas’ High South cuisine, indulge in comfort food dishes at The Hive, helmed by James Beard nominee Matthew McClure and located within the award-winning 21c Museum Hotel.

Ready to get away for the entire weekend? For a picturesque escape, forgo the standard hotel room, and stay at the Treehouse Cottages in Eureka Springs.

Featuring luxurious amenities such as kitchenettes, fireplaces and even heart-shaped Jacuzzi tubs, you and your loved one can cozy up and enjoy some quality time relaxing and reconnecting. Bring a bottle of wine to enjoy while taking in the peaceful forest views from your porch or picture window.
