2014 Holiday Date Night Ideas for Hampton Roads

It's no secret I'm a bit of a nut for Christmastime (and if you've been a reader for awhile, you already knew I had a winter Colonial Williamsburg wedding)! And I think winter makes for the coziest, magical, and best date nights ever, so I've rounded up the best local events happening this holiday season.

From parades to fireworks to kid-friendly celebrations, there's a little bit of everything for everyone no matter if you're in Virginia Beach or Williamsburg! Go all around to see the true beauty of our region decked out in its winter best! :)
