Summer Date Night Ideas In Tampa, FL

The Tampa Bay area isn’t only a great place to visit as a family or group of friends: It’s also a primo vacationland for couples! 

And you won’t find a better home base for dating it up around this watery wonderland in Central Florida than Saddlebrook Resort, offering 480 gorgeous and amenity-packed acres and some of the region’s finest accommodations in Wesley Chapel, FL.

A Summertime Getaway for Two in Greater Tampa

Our decked-out resort provides a heck of a launchpad for experiencing the many delights of the Tampa Bay area together. 

You certainly won’t be hurting for date-night ideas. How about a sunset cruise out on Tampa Bay itself, relishing the subtropical vibes and swoony skyscape on the doorstep of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico? 

Or dine out at a romantic restaurant on the heels of a full day of museum-going or amusement-park thrills spent together.

You can even go really old school in the date-night department and take advantage of one of several drive-in theaters still in operation around Greater Tampa. That includes the Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre not all that far from Saddlebrook Resort over in Lakeland, FL, which serves up double features seven nights a week. (Among the currently showing flicks include Barbie and Indiana Jones & The Dial of Destiny.)

Hiking local trails, tubing or paddling spring-fed streams, taking a boat tour seeking the Tampa Bay ecosystem’s abundant dolphin population, beach-hopping along the barrier islands edging Clearwater: Well, the sky’s just about the limit when it comes to day-tripping dates out of Saddlebrook Resort!

Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel, FL: The Ideal Central Florida Escape for Lovebirds

As it happens, our property itself comes chockablock with date-ready activities. Consider, for example, our adults-only Serenity Pool, the quieter, more relaxed counterpart to our sprawling Superpool (which, mind you, does offer cabana rentals that might be just the ticket for a date afternoon as well). The Serenity Pool awaits for a serene soak whenever the two of you declare the need for it.

And then there are our Saddlebrook Resort dining establishments, including the perfect date-night dinner spot at Dempsey’s Too. Or savor “Floribbean” small plates and refreshing, toast-worthy cocktails while gazing into one another’s eyes at our Pool Bar.

Simply strolling hand-in-hand through our gorgeous Walking Village grounds, landscaped with native Florida vegetation and quilted with our Arnold Palmer signature golf courses, is a deep pleasure.

And, of course, our luxurious accommodations, many of which take the form of spacious suites with full kitchens, function as superlative private oases.
