If you’re looking for a unique date idea , why not hit up the Renaissance Fair?
Whether it’s just with your significant other or as a family outing, the Ren fair is a time machine that transports people back to medieval times. You can spend some time exploring tents of artisans and vendors selling their wares or enjoying all of the shows, games and rides. Get interactive by playing some medieval games like archery, jousting matches on horseback, axe throwing and knife throwing. But definitely don’t miss out on watching the falconer—it’s unlike anything else!
Themed weekends throughout the year will transport you one location to another. Just recently, the winter wonderland themed festival was featured. In the winter months, you’ll want to bundle up and keep your eyes peeled for snow!
The cost of admission is not too bad either; it’s about $20 for adults and $15 for kids (ages 5-12) and seniors (ages 60+). Group rates are also available if you’re making a special trip with friends or family. Remember to dress appropriately by wearing comfortable shoes and light, loose clothing that covers your arms and legs. You might even consider bringing a sweater in case the weather takes a turn for the worse. If you’re coming from out of town, make sure to check out hotels near where you’ll be spending the day. Have fun!

It has nothing to do with advertising or endorsement of any kind on my part. This is not an exhaustive list of all four images used – there are two others that aren’t particularly relevant so they’re not included here, but they will be in the sourced section.
