Juggling classes are a thing, and you don't need to want to be a clown to attend them. Juggling is a fun activity if you're blessed with great hand-eye coordination. Nothing is funnier than seeing someone try to juggle, and they end up causing all the balls to fall on the ground. A date night filled with laughs is what you should expect if you're planning on taking a juggling class. Don't be surprised if you don't get the hang of juggling right away because it takes quite a bit of time learning to pull off what a clown makes look easy.
A great date idea for a young couple is to plant a tree. Sure, couples of all ages can enjoy planting a tree, but there's something special about it when a young couple does it or when you move to a new place. Just think about how you'll be able to look at the tree years later and watch it grow. The tree will grow just like the love between you and your spouse does. Every year you can plant a new tree to symbolize your love and to make the world a better place. Those trees will be like your love; they will stand the test of time.

Did you know that you can rent segways at locations near many parks? You can, and that's why you see so many people riding segways near parks. It usually only costs a few dollars to rent a segway, which makes them such a great date idea. The two of you can each rent segways and then go around the park riding them. It won't take you long to figure out how to ride a segway. A few moments is all it takes, and the two of you will be zipping around the park trying to outdo each other.
Fossil hunting is like going back in time and piecing together what life was like long before you were here. Do a little research beforehand to know what type of fossils you should expect in your area. If you can, travel to an area well known for having fossils. Digging up the fossils is only half the fun because you've got to identify what you dug up. The first thing you do is try to determine what part of the animal you discovered. After that, then you move on to trying to figure out what animal the bones came from. The exciting thing is, you might be holding onto the bones of a dinosaur that hasn't seen the light of day for millions of years.
Base jumping is a fantastic date for the couple who loves adrenaline rushes or to check things off of their bucket lists. Base jumping is where you jump off of high things and then parachute down, and it's exhilarating! You do need some training and understanding of how to jump safely before making any such attempts. Find a place that offers the sport and can help you learn how to be safe and ultimately make that jump. Be sure to get whatever pictures you can so you have some cool mementos of your extreme date. Everyone has a natural amount of fear in them, and overcoming your fears is incredible.
