Explore Art & History
The Uptown Art Gallery, located inside Brooksville City Hall, features art entirely by local artists. The exhibits change throughout the year, and they include a variety of mediums, from fine jewelry to sculpture and everything in between.
The historic May-Stringer House Museum is one of the oldest homes in the area. With over 11,000 artifacts in rotating displays, there's always something new to see here. Bonus points if you or your sweetheart are into spooky stuff, because it's also one of the most haunted spots in Florida!

Indulge in a Spa Day
Treat yourself, your partner, or both of you to some well-deserved pampering. Book a couples massage, turn off your phones, and spend some time luxuriating in a zen-like setting.
Try Your Hand at Winemaking
Ever wish you could create your very own vintage? Now you can! Take your special someone or your best group of gal pals to for a one-of-a-kind experience. Once Upon a Vine is a unique Spring Hill establishment that allows you to select a kit and create your very own private label wine! Each kit makes between 28-30 bottles, with fewer tannins and sulfites found in store-bought wine. Although they won't be ready right away, you can have a fun night out getting the process started, and then toast to your success with a finished product in about a month!
Take a Bite Out of Love
You'll never convince us that food isn't love. A romantic dinner for two is a classic date night activity. And don't skimp on dessert!
We are fortunate to have a plethora of great restaurants in our area. If you're looking for a truly upscale meal, we recommend Nouvelle Cuisine in Spring Hill or Brian's Place on Hernando Beach. Or surprise her with a quaint luncheon or high tea at The Tilted Teacup Tearoom in Brooksville.
Enjoy The Outdoors
If the weather proves kind, there's nothing like an amorous outing outside with bae. Take your honey to the JG Ranch in Brooksville to pick strawberries - eat them fresh, or save them to dip in chocolate later.
Or, head over to the Nature Coast Botanical Gardens in Spring Hill. Take a stroll through the Oriental Tea Garden, or wind your way through the Secret Garden. Instead of a bunch of flowers, you can also stop by the nursery on the way out and purchase a beautiful living plant to gift your special someone.
