Logan Utah makes a great weekend getaway, and it’s also a college town ripe for some great date nights. Here’s a list of 45 fun date ideas in Logan Utah to help you get your date on!
We spent part of the summer living in Utah the last two years. It’s great to get out of the Arizona heat and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the mountains. We created Friday We’re in Love as a project to keep us accountable to go on a date every week, even when we travel. I thought we’d run out of fun date ideas in Logan, Utah in a week or two, but Logan surprised me! There’s a ton of fun things to do.
For anyone who lives in Logan, is attending college at Utah State University, or wants a great weekend getaway in a charming small city, here’s a ton of fun Logan date ideas to keep date night fun.
Utah State Activities

What’s a true Aggie?
