Struggling to think of a creative Valentine’s date idea for you & your significant other? Do you need a fun way to celebrate Galentine’s Day? Are you and your roommate just tired of watching Netflix all day, every day? Here are 8 Campus Rec activities if you’re looking to try something new this V-day:
Flex your ski/snowboarding skills at Snowflex or laugh as the two of you fly down the tubing runs. The best part? It’s all free for Liberty students! After your time on the slopes, you can warm up in the cozy Barrick-Falwell Lodge over a cup of The Muse Coffee and delicious pastries.
Pick up one of your favorite pies from Woodfire Pizza Co., then go pick up some spares! The Montview Bowling Alley is a great place for a double date, a group outing, or a ladies’ night! To make it even better, the Montview Bowling Alley is hosting a BOGO Blacklight Bowling event from 6 p.m.–close on Valentine’s Day!
Head up to LMGC between 2-6 P.M. on Valentine’s Day to practice your shooting skills and enjoy the mountain views! Afterwards, head back down the mountain and grab some Garbanzo or gyros from Hot and Cold Café Downtown Lynchburg!
Zip up your winter layers, lace up your hiking boots, and fill a thermos full of cocoa! Grab a trail map at Hydaway Outdoor Center and navigate your way to where Clear Cut Rd. intersects the powerlines. Enjoy the beauty of the morning or get there in time to see the sunset. Either way, this might just become your favorite date of all time.
Hold each other to those New Year’s resolutions and hit the gym at LaHaye Recreation & Fitness Center or David’s Place for a workout. For something sweet, follow it up with some delicious and nutritious smoothies!
Pick up your skateboards (or those roller skates you bought during quarantine) and head over to the Liberty Mountain Skate Park, where students can skate for free! Afterward, walk a few doors over to Wasabi and grab some sushi.
Visit the LaHaye Rock Wall to try the new routes then go for ice cream at a new spot! Try a lesser-known favorite like Outside the Cone.
Compete against each other (and others) for a coveted Intramural Sports championship shirt at the Table Tennis or Billiards Tournaments at the Montview Game Room on Feb. 12. Take your talents to Tacos Locos for dinner afterward to celebrate—whether it was a brilliant victory or a valiant effort.
