Shower? Check. Clothes that aren’t meant for working out? Check. Babysitter? Check. “Where do you want to go?” “I don’t care. Where do you want to go?” Sound familiar?

But honestly, sometimes the sheer number of places to go and things to do can be overwhelming. Often, we end up sticking to the same old places. We decided to branch out, and compiled a list of the best, coolest, most fun and unique places in Westchester County for a date night (or a girls’ night out!).
