Start by going on a car date with your sweetie. Drive to the lakefront or go to your favorite spot to watch the sun come up together. You can enjoy the tranquility of the sunrise with just your PJ's or CC's coffee, some pastries, and your partner. It's bound to be a special moment you'll remember for years. 

How about a beautiful and calming scenic drive? There are many routes in and around St. Tammany and surrounding parishes that include glimpses of rivers, bayous, and pristine forests that you can drive and spend the day enjoying the view from your vehicle. 


Stargazing is one of the most romantic date ideas near Mandeville LA that you can share with your partner. Spend the night drinking in the beauty of the stars, looking for constellations, and maybe making a wish on a shooting star. Just like in the movies, this one might seem cliché but is truly inspiring. To make it even more special, turn on your favorite slow-music play list and dance with each other under the stars.
For a bit of elegance, pack a beautiful tablecloth or blanket, two crystal champagne flutes, and a good bottle of bubbly, and drive to a special location to indulge. Or why not go ahead and make it a picnic? Cook something homemade to show you care, or pick up something special from Rouses or Whole Foods and feed yourselves while you feed your souls.
