When temperatures warm up in the summer or drop to freezing in the winter, you can still have a really fun date night indoors in Greenville, SC. We have everything from ax throwing to performing a play to dancing and rock climbing.

If the idea of ​​feeling the sweat rolling down your back on a date outdoors this summer doesn’t sound romantic to you, we can sympathize. Summers, while fun in South Carolina, can be brutally hot, and planning a fun date together where you don’t melt can take a little creativity — and that’s where we can help. And on cold winter nights, you can stay warm inside while having fun together!

Luckily, there are plenty of great places upstate to have a memorable and cool night out in AC besides the standard dinner and a movie. Whatever your interests, we think you’ll find something on this list where you can plan a great summer or winter evening together.
