As I have mentioned before, quality time is such an important aspect of maintaining a healthy, intimate connection in your relationship. Creating a strong connection that is built around fun, happiness, and intimacy can additionally improve your desire and ability to communicate more effectively and resolve conflict with one another.


What better way to build quality and intimate time with your partner than prioritizing date nights on a regular basis? You and your partner also deserve the chance to disconnect from the stressors of everyday life and create some time to have great new experiences together.

Sawgrass Mills Mall - Not technically located in Plantation, but just on the border in Sunrise, FL. Shop til you drop is an understatement here. This mall is SO big that I've lived here 8 years and I still don't know if I have made it all the way through. Any and every shopping need you and your date may want is sure to be here, they have high end shopping and discount outlets to fit anyone's wants and needs. Maybe even treat each other to a little gift? Take a break during your shopping day and stop to eat at any of the MANY restaurants on site and get back to shopping!

It is attached to Broward Mall and The Whole Enchilada Fresh Mexican Grill & Bar, which just so happens to have awesome food and live music. Located just a minute outside of Plantation, Davie Florida has another theater, Paragon Ridge Movie Theaters offers a more luxurious movie experience with reclining chairs and tasty custom pizzas to enjoy during your movie. Enjoy the big screen!
