Stroll Hand-in-Hand…

Nothing says romance like a walk through the scenic grounds of Beloit College. The oldest college in Wisconsin was founded in 1846 and sits high on a hill overlooking the Rock River. The campus offers a picture-perfect location to relax and meander through 40 wooded acres of winding walkways. From the New England-style buildings, public art displays, and Native American effigy mounds, Beloit College is not to be missed on your romantic getaway.

Savor and Cherish…

Beloit is revered for its array of unique restaurants! If you crave the farm-to-table experience, then you must visit Double B Farm & Country Cafe for unbelievable bacon, farm-fresh eggs, and their famous “Duck Butt” muffins! If you love a juicy gourmet burger and insanely awesome sweet potato fries, then head to Lucy’s #7 Burger Bar. Maybe you want to dine AND shop. If so, Bushel & Peck’s Local Market is the place. Part market, part restaurant, part music & art, part preservation kitchen, but 100% unique! But, for your romantic dinner, you may want to think about one these fine establishments, all known for their fantastic food, wine, or a Wisconsin-famous Brandy Old Fashioned. Clara Bo & Gatsby Wine Bar, the 615 Club, Merrill & Houston’s, and Zen Sushi are just a few of the romantic dining spots to choose from. Whatever you settle on, you can rest assured that you will savor the food and cherish your special time together!

Drive & Unwind…

Get out of the city for a while and take a scenic drive on Beloit’s winding country roads. Relish the beauty of antique barns, horses, and farmland. Though a drive in the country is fun and wistful on its own, it’s even more fun if you have a romantic destination–like a stunning winery for instance! DC Estate Winery, nestled in the lightly rolling hills, gives you the feeling of being in Tuscany. They offer a variety of wines for every taste, a cozy fireplace, outstanding service, and a generous tasting for a mere $5. DC also has a wedding venue, and they hold various events including paint night and murder mystery, so be sure to check out their calendar!

Step Back in Time…

Beloit’s historically preserved downtown, with a decorative gantry and brick-paved main street, reminds you of yester-year and offers an exceptional array of boutiques, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, a record store, and even an old-fashioned barber shop. If you have a “sweet tooth” you’ll want to stop in the Flying Pig for a smoothie, fudge, and gourmet popcorn or Northwoods Premium Confections for fine chocolates, retro candies, and premium ice cream! Share a cone, walk arm-in-arm, and enjoy the romance!

Get Your Groove On…

Known for providing live music every night of the week somewhere in Beloit, you’ll be sure to find a venue to dance, rock out, or just chill! Merrill & Houston’s Steak Joint has live music every first and third Wednesday, and every Friday. Grand Avenue Pub offers live music and drink specials seven nights a week. Suds O’Hanahan’s and Boundaries Bar and Grill also host live bands frequently, and Mustang’s Bar & Grill offers music and live comedy nights. If classical is more your style, you’re in for a treat! The Beloit-Janesville Symphony Orchestra and the Turtle Creek Chamber Orchestra are both known for their outstanding performances.

Get Cozy…

For posh amenities, serene ambiance, and cozy linens, the 1810 Emerson House Bed & Breakfast should be your first choice for your romantic overnight stay in a lovely example of Georgian Colonial Revival architecture. Breakfast is served each morning on fine china and each evening before leaving for dinner, guests are served a delectable antipasto plate with an assortment of tasty appetizers along with complimentary wine. And, every evening, desserts are available as a final treat before retiring. Now that’s romantic!

The Ironworks Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel in the heart historic downtown, is also ideal for a romantic evening. The luxury suites include a two-sided gas fireplace with a sitting area, spa-like bathrooms, plush robes, and minibar. To enhance the romantic atmosphere, you can order chocolate-covered strawberries, champagne, and rose petals!

Celebrate the Power of Independent Film…

What’s a romantic date night without sharing some popcorn and watching a great movie? Every year, Beloit hosts a ten-day film festival known as BIFF or Beloit International Film Festival.
