The surprising thing about going to an aquarium is you always end up seeing several species of fish that are new to you. Seeing fish swim around in an aquarium is always relaxing and has a soothing effect. A fun game to do on an aquarium date is to see if you know what species of fish you're looking at. Tally up the score to see who is more familiar with fish and tease each other on the way home about it. Trying to guess what type of fish you're looking at is even more fun if neither of you know what you're looking at. The guesses that both of you come up with will be so hilarious that you're bound to get a good chuckle.

A trip to the arcade is about more than just going down memory lane. The arcade is a great place to have all kinds of fun. Try to find two-player games that each of you can play together. Don't limit yourself to only video games since most arcades also have games of skill. Air hockey is a fun game to play, and you get quite a bang for your buck. Skee ball is another game where you can take turns or compete against each other to see who can get the highest score. Games of skill are great because you can collect tickets and redeem them for all kinds of toys you can have fun with later.
Archaeology enables history buffs to take things one step further and touch the historic landmarks and items of the era.

If you're feeling adventurous, you can team up with a group of researchers trying to uncover a secret hidden past. Archaeology allows you to experience history in a way that nothing else can. You will be able to see and feel the past, and it will come to life in your hands.

Shooting a bow and arrow usually requires you to go an archery range or out into the wilderness. Going out in the woods is a great date idea for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. If you're country folks, then you already know the value of enjoying nature. You don't have to go hunting or anything like that to have fun. Target practice can be fun if you have all the equipment necessary. Even if you don't, then shooting arrows into a tree can be just as fun. Always remember safety is crucial if you want to have a good time and be able to talk about it later.
The Raspberry Pi has taken the world of computing by storm. There are so many different projects you can work on with your Raspberry Pi or Arduino as a couple. You can build an arcade game, build a robot, or use it to run software that you code. You can turn your Raspberry Pi project into several dates. The first date can be where you decide what you're going to do with the Raspberry Pi. The subsequent dates can be the two of you working to put your plan into action. After you're done, you can show off your contraption or put it on eBay and see if anyone is willing to buy it from you.

Aromatherapy is about more than sniffing something that smells good. An aromatherapy date involves smelling all kinds of things and taking your senses on a journey. You will be amazed by how scent alone can change your mood and how you feel. The funny part will be when you watch how your spouse reacts to the different scents. Some of the scents you'll agree smell nice, and they have so many different relaxing properties. There will be at least one scent that each of you finds a little odd or maybe even objectionable, and that will offer up the type of hilarity that few dates can offer.
Classes & Workshops
Art classes are fun for both artistic couples and those who aren't creative in the least. Sometimes those who are the least creative end up enjoying art classes the most because you discover a side of yourself that you didn't know existed. Art classes come in various forms, and you should be able to find some locally that are both paid and free. If you don't want to leave the house, you might be able to find some live streaming art classes for your date. If all else fails, check out YouTube and find some free art classes there that you can watch at any time. Save your art projects so you can remember your date or give them away as gifts so that the fun you two had impacts even more lives.
Arts & Culture
The perfect date for art lovers and art novices alike is a local art exhibit. Exhibits expose you to new artists and their view of life. Walk around the exhibit and discuss with your spouse what you think the meaning behind the art is. Ask each other what your favorite pieces were and what you think inspired the artist. Trying to understand the art will teach the two of you how the other perceives things. Also, the things they pick up about the art may be totally different from how you process it.
Arts & Culture
Allowing your creative side to flourish by doing arts & crafts is a fantastic date idea. Take it one step further by turning your love of arts & crafts into a business. A fun way to kick off your date is by walking through a craft store and seeing what piques your interest. By the time you're ready to leave the store, you'll have a clear idea as to what you want to make when you're at home. Be as zany and creative as you want to be when creating your crafts. It's great to watch your spouse's imagination come alive and explore their inner self. You don't know who you're married to until you see their creativity open like a flower blossoming in the morning.

A good auction is one that has a variety of household items along with everything else that you can imagine. Auctions sometimes also have concession stands where you can get a bite to eat to make the entire experience more enjoyable. Roam around the auction house and see what is going up on the auction block. Give each other a set amount of money and try to find something that you like. The real excitement of an auction is the bidding process. It's so much fun to watch your spouse in the heat of the moment during a bidding war. If your spouse wants something bad enough, their animal side will come out, and a bidding war will take place.
Audiobooks are an enjoyable way to get the information from a book without having to read it. Also, if you buy a copy of a book, only one of you can read it at a time. With an audiobook, both of you can listen to it at the same time. Why not have one night a week where you sit down and listen to an audiobook together? You could also make it a part of your drive during your other dates together. Have some snacks ready and get comfy on the couch and spend time enjoying a good story. It will be worth the audiobook's cost if the two of you can enjoy each other's company. If you have a few hours per week to have an audiobook date, you might finish a book or two a month.
Fun & Games
Augmented reality is fun because it adds to the world as you know it. What is augmented reality?

You will be surprised to see the new world around you, and your spouse's reaction to it will be priceless. Try several games to see which ones you enjoy best. The best games are those you go outside and play, but there are a few indoor games that you can enjoy during those times when the weather doesn't permit you to go out.

Turn auto maintenance into a date and have all kinds of fun in the process. Reward yourself with something great to eat after you're done to turn your auto maintenance date into something even more enjoyable. If you want to make your date even more enjoyable, take your vehicle for a spin after you perform maintenance on it. All your hard work will pay off when you're going down the road and enjoying the ride.
Some of you may not know it, but there are more than likely auto races near where you live. The most common form of auto racing is dirt track racing. If you go to a dirt track, you'll want to be prepared to get dirty. The dirt flies all over the place, but that's half the fun. The smaller race tracks allow you to bring in your own beverages and snacks as well. Usually, the race track has a concession stand, and they offer the typical food of hamburgers, hot dogs, soda pop, and so on. Each of you should pick a car that you hope wins before the race begins and cheer them on until the victory lap.
Auto repair might seem like a strange date night until you learn how much a mechanic charges! This is a great idea for newlyweds without a lot of money or other couples who love to live frugally. There are many things that a couple can do in the garage that will save them quite a bit of money. Some expensive repair jobs are quite simple to do yourself. Doing so you'll save money, learn more about your car, and spend time with each other. Even something as simple as changing your windshield wiper blades can be adventurous and fun if you've never done if before. If you're unsure how to do something, watch YouTube videos and learn from others.
Axe and knife throwing take the type of mental focus that can help melt the stress away. It's impossible to focus on anything other than what you're throwing when you have a sharp object that you're trying to stick into something. You and your spouse can have a competition to see who can throw the axe or knife better. Take a slice of a log and make it your goal to get as close to the center of it as possible. If you don't have a log lying around, make a target out of a piece of wood. The person who gets closest to the center can have bragging rights for the rest of the evening on who is the better thrower.
