Monday through Friday means countless hours at the office, housework, taking care of the kids and everything else in between. While these jam-packed, busy schedules define just about everyone’s lives these days, it’s still important to set aside time for you and your partner. If you’re currently residing in Allentown, Pennsylvania – and currently looking for a date night idea – check out some of these awesome spots.

Dine at Grain

Nestled within one of the historic buildings of Hamilton Street, Grain is just the kind of diverse flair Allentown needed. The refreshing new eatery serves up a flavorful twist of American comfort food, with a vibrant menu that matches its atmosphere – somewhere that a couple of any age can enjoy. If the two of you are looking for a more upbeat and lively night out, you can spend time on the first floor where the bar is located. If you’re looking for a more intimate dinner, the second floor contains the dining room – a quiet, more isolated area for people to connect.

Race at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix

If you’re a pair that prefers an adrenaline rush over a traditional romantic evening, spending your date night at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix is a perfect choice. The ¼ mile racetrack is a paved road course, surrounded by a barrier of more than 1,300 Goodyear tires – which just so happened to be used in a NASCAR race. Although you pay per race, there are specials each day of the week; be sure to take advantage of their Monday Madness offer, which allows you to race for an unlimited amount of time from 5:30 P.M. until 10 P.M. for just $55.00. If you’re looking to head back for another fast-paced night of racing, Lehigh Valley Grand Prix also offers leagues to join.

Bowl at AMF Lanes

AMF is the worldwide leader in bowling entertainment and bowling events, so this is a must for you and your partner if you’re Allentown residents. The elegant yet laid back establishment houses 48 lanes, each with complimentary lane-side service. If you want to switch it up a little bit between games, there is also an interactive arcade and pool tables. The AMF in Allentown is also home to the AMF Parkway sports bar, comprised of flat screen television sets and delicious and innovative cocktails and beer. As for the food, there are nine menus to choose from, covering just about anything you could be in the mood for – be it appetizers or dessert! Looking to bowl on a budget for date night? AMF offers $2 games, shoe rentals and PBR beers every Tuesday night. Score!

Explore Dorney Park

Allentown, Pennsylvania is known for being the home to Dorney Park – a unique, safe and fun-filled amusement park that dates all the way back to its humble beginnings in 1860. Open until October (but only on the weekends), the resort has an incredible amount of rides and games for visitors to enjoy, in addition to live entertainment and special events.
