Within the Cambria County of Pennsylvania is where you can find the reasonably large city of Johnstown. This is the state’s principal city and it houses some of its most impressive locations such as the Point Stadium.
It is an urban location that is home to just about 20,000 people and it has some great places to enjoy yourself with your significant other. There is no shortage of places for you to hangout in such a city and the burden of choice can be quite a heavy one.
The reality is just about any outing can be romantic if you’re having fun or relaxing in the company of the right person. So, here are some of the most fun and the most relaxing things you can do together in Johnstown.
Johnstown Symphony Orchestra
Music is possibly the greatest form of expression that humans have been afforded in its entire existence. The rhythm, the tone, the pitch, the notes, etc. Everything just comes together in such harmony that it has a subconscious effect on just about everyone.
One of the problems with mainstream musical scores by professional artistes is that the focus has always been on the words. The message is important but there is so much more to convey in the tune. This is where an orchestra has an advantage, especially if said orchestra is a good one.
In 1929, a collection of Johnstown locals came together to form the Johnstown Symphony Orchestra. Almost a century later, not only is it still going, but the quality has not fallen. It is currently renowned as one of the world’s best orchestras and it is a must hear for you and your significant other.
If you want to strengthen your bond and increase your ability to feel and be vulnerable with each other, do both of you a favor and take in the experience that is this orchestra.
There was a time when there were not many things more romantic than driving into an outdoor theatre or cinema lot and enjoying a picture with someone you love from the comfort of your own vehicle. It offered a sense of an unusual and new experience while preserving some semblance of your natural comfort zone.
This tradition set the mood for some great nights as it was never a disappointing experience. In fact, some people used to watch the same picture repeatedly just to relive the lovely experience.
In an age where this is no longer the norm, the level of comfort and romance experienced this way is all but forgotten, however, it is well preserved with the Silver Drive-In.
Find out what picture is showing and drive in one night to get the outside experience under the stars and moonlight. Expect to leave wondering how this ever became less of a mainstream thing to do.
Coal Tubin’ Pennsylvania
Prepare to let the adventurer in you loose with a visit to Coal Tubin’ Pennsylvania. There are several cool routes you and your significant other can take on together in the water as your traverse the Stonycreek River on either a whitewater raft (the more romantic option) or a tube. There kinds of water activities are always better together, and the experience is one every couple should enjoy together at least once.
