Who doesn’t love a filet mignon dinner, finished off with chocolate lava cake? The atmosphere at Fleming’s is perfect for romance, whether you’re going to pop the big question, celebrate a special occasion, or simply show them you’re thankful that they’re in your life.
There’s nothing more romantic than an evening spent among flowers! Located just a short drive away at NC State University, JC Raulston Arboretum is a nationally acclaimed garden with one of the largest and most diverse collections of landscape plants in the country. They regularly hold special events, like the Winter Symposium focusing on plants from the Far East, or you can plan your own special evening. You can even bid on plants to bring your favorite home as a souvenir for your backyard garden.
There’s so much to do in our downtown area! You can get a bite to eat, go shopping, have a drink at a locally-owned brewery, and browse a farmer’s market. This is perfect for couples who love to explore and spend their money boosting the local economy. Many of the special places you love in downtown Wake Forest are small businesses owned by your neighbors!
For couples who love the serenity of nature, Falls Lake State Recreation Area is the ideal date night spot.
