With its romantic setting and wide selection of wine, you will forget about the kids and be relaxing in no time.
After enjoying a glass of wine or a cocktail, there are many choices for things to do together. If you are feeling satisfied from your wine and appetizers, you may decide to skip dinner and go for a romantic horse and carriage ride down the street in Old Town Scottsdale. You can get on at Main Street and Brown from September through June and for a very special night, they will also pick you up at a designated spot. You can take a tour of Old Town or The Waterfront, going over the Arizona Canal Bridge.
Not a big fan of horses and you are still hungry? Head north to catch a movie and dinner at I Pic theater at the Scottsdale Quarter. Located at 15279 N.

Once your movie is over and your babysitter isn’t expecting you home for a few hours, top off your evening at the Hyatt Gainey Ranch and take a Gondola ride under the moonlight. Located at 7300 Gainey Drive, you will feel like you are in Venice as the gondolier serenades you as you float through the calming water.
