Stargazing in the Wilderness
Venture into the wilderness of Westwood to witness a breathtaking spectacle of the universe. September is a perfect time for stargazing, as the summer haze dissipates and autumn brings clear, crisp skies. Lay back on a soft blanket together, and share secrets under the gaze of countless stars. A telescope is optional, but it could bring a layer of wonder and exploration to the experience. End the date in a cozy way by bringing some hot chocolate and marshmallows to enjoy together.Add to favorites

The date ends when the sun begins to rise, signaling the start of a new day shared together. Cuddle together, roast marshmallows over a campfire and sip on warm hot chocolate.
