Alternative Valentine’s Dates That Don’t End At Collage

Alternative Valentine's Dates
Ah, Valentines Day

The romance, the roses. The hype, the expectations. Either you’re excited about Feb. 14th, or it makes you cringe. There’s not a lot of middle ground. Is another romantic candle light dinner on the menu again this year? Or are you hanging out alone or with a group of friends? If you’re single, here are some ideas to make the day more bearable. If you’re over the traditional Valentine’s fare, we’ve got a few ideas for a Valentine’s date that won’t end with a visit to Collage.

Alternative Valentine’s Dates

Get Creative

We don’t mean try to come up with a creative way to have the same old Valentine’s date. We mean be creative. Are you artistic? Why not plan an evening of painting, pottery or photography.  Both Corky Creations Paint and Sip in Kearney and the Happy Brush in Grand Island are having a special Valentine’s Event if you want to give paining a try.

Go On An Adventure

Tell your date to take a hike, no really. An evening walking or biking either Kearney or Grand Island’s  historic trails under the stars is a great option. And if the weather cooperates, make a snowman or snow angels. Speaking of stars, if the night sky is your thing maybe an early Valentine’s Date on the 13th at the Jupiter Planetarium show at the UNK Bruner Hall Planetarium would be fun.

Take in a Play

Why not spend the evening at the theater? The Kearney Community Theater is performing the musical “She Love’s Me” Valentine’s Night and in Grand Island the GILT is presenting the musical “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” at College Park.


If you’re looking for a laugh, you might want to check out the Valentine’s Date Night Laugh and Love Dinner and Comedy show.

Have a Sporting Good Time

If you and your date are into sports, what better way to spend the day than at the 8th Annual Heartland Hoops Classic?

Planning one of these alternative Valentine Dates allows you to step out of the box and get creative for you special valentine.  This also gives you time to plan ways to keep yourself out of situations that put you at risk for an unexpected pregnancy or a STD. At Collage we want you to have a fantastic Valentine’s Day and we want you to stay safe. But if you find yourself in need of help, you know where to find us.
