Romance in the 'Rapids

Surprise your special someone with a romantic getaway to Cedar Rapids! Leave your cares behind, because this weekend is all about the two of you.

Start your weekend with a leisurely trip to the NewBo City Market. Enjoy creating something together? Take a class in the Market's Kirkwood Culinary Kitchen. Or take a day class at the Ceramics Center, right next door to NewBo in the Historic Cherry Building.

Relax with a pint and a signature sandwich at Dublin City Pub.

Make plans for rejuvenation with a couple's massage at Verbena Massage Spa and Tea Bar.

Start off with drinks at Emil's Hideaway. Then for a fine dining experience, head to Zin's in downtown Cedar Rapids or The Class Act Restaurant. Top off what was sure to be an amazing day with your partner by spending the night at the posh The Hotel at Kirkwood Center.

Peruse Grant Wood's artwork at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art or visit the Campbell Steele Art Gallery. Purchase gifts and mementos of your romantic retreat at The Chocolate Shop or the Brucemore Store and Cutting Gardens Flower Shop.

Hit the road for a short drive to Amana where you can enjoy a home style meal at the Ox Yoke Inn.

Take in a wine tasting at Fireside Winery in Marengo. Fireside features several live music events in the summer - including their Sunday Unplugged concert series.
