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. Shop in the eclectic retail options within NewBo or explore the antique stores in the nearby New Bohemia Main Street District. Relax with a pint at Lion Bridge Brewing.
Dinner & Drinks
For a fine dining experience, head to Rodina in the Czech Village or The Class Act Restaurant on the south side of town. 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.
Cedar Rapids Art
Peruse Grant Wood's artwork at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art or visit the Grant Wood Studio and Visitor Center. 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 the Amana Colonies where you can enjoy a homestyle 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.
