60 to Escape – Winner of Top 10 Best Escape Rooms in the US!

If you’ve been following the blog, you probably already know how much I love escape rooms.  We’ve added it to our Top Rainy Day Date Ideas, and our Fall Bucket List for Couples.  If you’ve never done an Escape Room before, you should definitely check it out.  We do them all over…while we are on vacation, out visiting friends, or just want a fun date night around town.  Throughout our Escape Room experiences, we have found some rooms are very well put together, and some…well, not so much.  We have been to our fair share of good ones, and plenty of rooms that are sad excuses for an “Escape Room”.  So, when we find awesome ones, we definitely want to share, so you can enjoy them as well.

I had no idea that was a thing and jumped at the opportunity, as soon as I learned of Skydeck’s “Pie in the Sky” event.
