Why watch an action movie when you can experience the adventure yourself? Escape rooms are a great way to put your problem solving skills and communication to the test. This is also a great idea if you’re looking for a group activity to do with other couples. Solve puzzles, find hidden objects, and decipher codes to see if you can find your way out before times runs out! There are now several escape rooms in Bucks County.

Bed & Breakfast
For many people, the only time you spend a night away from home is when you’re traveling or going to an event like a wedding. But there’s really something special about getting away from the daily routines of home life, even if you’re staying somewhere nearby. Treat yourself and your loved one to a night at a local bed and breakfast so you can really relax and enjoy each other’s company.
