A boat right can be a scenic journey down a river, or it can last a matter of days. Traveling by boat is old fashioned, and it'll be a blast from the past while you're floating down the river. Boats often offer things such as restaurants and other attractions if you're up for more than only enjoying the scenery. Enjoy all the sights and sounds that being on the water has and take advantage of any of the amenities that the boat may offer. Stand on the deck of the boat and enjoy a world you rarely see while you're with the person you love.
Your creative side comes to light when you're body painting. Take turns painting each other and see what kind of funky designs you can come up with. It might be fun to have a theme such as nature, or animal prints, or whatever. The point is to add a new dimension to the body painting to make it even more exciting. If you want to have even more fun after painting each other, step into the shower together and wash the paint off. It might take a little scrubbing to get the paint off, but both of you will end up laughing up a storm at the mess the two of you made.
A bonfire is a great way to signal that autumn has finally arrived. Though, you can have a bonfire during almost any time of the year. Gather sticks and tree limbs that are lying on the ground before the bonfire. You can make a separate date out of preparing for the bonfire since it does take quite a bit of wood. A bonfire is best at nighttime so that you can see the flames dance as they illuminate the night sky. Bring along some marshmallows to roast and some apple cider if you're going after the full autumn effect.
Avid readers know how much fun a book club can be. How can you turn your book club membership into a date? You both need to read the same book and then talk about it. Sit around and discuss what you think is going on with the book. Sometimes it's best to talk about the book after both of you are done reading it because you don't want to risk hearing any spoilers. You can also agree to stop at the same place every week and then discuss what you read. Book clubs offer interesting reading suggestions that couples might otherwise overlook, and discussing what you read is always an enjoyable experience. Create your own little club with just the two of you or find another club that you can attend together.
Supporting your local bookstore is a date idea that will benefit you and other readers. Bookstores have a personality all of their own, and they are fun to go to even if you're not on a date. Go to the bookstore with the intent of buying each other a book. You probably already know what genre and authors that your spouse likes to read. Try to find at least one book that you think they will like. It will be interesting to see what your spouse chooses for you, and it will tell a lot about how much they pay attention to your reading habits.
A fun game to play at the botanical garden is to try to identify as many of the plants as possible without looking at their name. Since indoor botanical gardens are open all year round, going there during the winter is a great date idea. You'll feel like you're walking around in a warm country as you look at all the plants. A trip to the botanical garden can be an all-day date if you plan it right. Some gardens have benches, and you can even eat lunch there. Consider donating to your local botanical garden if a nonprofit organization runs it. If you donate, then your date will benefit everyone in your community.
Going bowling allows you to roll a ball towards pins while wearing funny looking shoes. Don't worry if you're the type who only throws gutter balls; the score doesn't matter when you're bowling. Somehow a game of bowling always turns into lots of laughs by the time the game is done. Also, bowling alleys are famous for having all kinds of snacks like nachos and deliciously greasy food. You can throw a few strikes and have a guilty pleasure all on the same date. Check with your local bowling alley if they have discounts during the day or other times. You may also want to avoid playing during the times when leagues are there since it might be difficult to get a lane. Many alleys also offer cosmic or other types of bowling with black lights, popular music and more.

Going out to eat on a breakfast date is a nice change of pace. Sometimes married couples are so busy they don't have time to spend with each other in the evening. If both of you go to work at the same time, a breakfast date makes perfect sense. If you can't do it during the week, going during the weekend on a day you both have off is a great alternative. Breakfast is served at so many restaurants these days, from fast food joints to sit down places with a menu. There is no better way to start the day than to share a meal with the person who you love more than anyone in the world. Breakfast dates are a fantastic way to sneak in some time for bonding during a period of the day most people overlook.
Arts & Culture
A once in a lifetime experience is what attending a broadway show is for many couples. You can turn this date into something even more special by eating dinner before you go out. Broadway has shows for every taste, and being in one of the most iconic entertainment areas of the world is reason enough to go there on a date. Attending a Broadway show is the perfect getaway if you live far away from New York City, or it's the ideal place to go for live entertainment if you live in or near the Big Apple. Or if you live further away see what shows may be touring near you.
Food & Drink
Brunch is a meal that is best enjoyed during those mornings when you wake up closer to lunchtime. What is brunch? Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch. A brunch date can be an enjoyable way to kickstart your day without having to worry about who's going to cook and do the dishes at home. The perfect brunch date is going to a place that either serves brunch or breakfast until late. Some restaurants serve breakfast all day long, and that means you can eat brunch anytime you want. Do a little research online to see what restaurants would be the best choice for your brunch date so you can enjoy yourself as much as possible.
One bathtub plus the two of you equals a magical evening. Light some candles, turn on some soft relaxing music and soak in a luxurious bubble bath. Allow yourselves to melt away in the sheer elegance of the warm water and the suds. Bubble baths are a great way to connect if you've been away for far too long. The two of you will be in the bathtub together so close that talking is a must. Feeding each other chocolates or fruit can add to the romantic undercurrents of taking a bubble bath together. This is definitely a great activity to indulge in from time to time with your spouse.
Everyone has a mental bucket list of sorts, and it's essential to clear off as many items as possible. It's good to express these desires by writing down your bucket list and it's the perfect thing to share with your spouse. As a date, write down individual lists or a shared list that you want to work on. You can even add categories or make separate lists that are themed. Then take your lists and plan dates around checking things off. Your bucket lists are going to change as you age, and you'll have to modify them accordingly. Always keep each other up-to-date as to what's on your bucket list so you can continue planning dates and checking things off together.
We all have to live within our means, and that's why budgets are so important. Why not turn the budgeting process into a date? The two of you do need to sit down and calculate how much money is coming in and where it's going. Spice things up by ordering takeout food and treating yourself to a movie or favorite television show after you're done. Intertwine activities with your budgeting dates so that they don't feel like it's a chore and nothing else. After all, you are spending time with the person you love, and every minute is precious. Make the most of it by adding a little flair to the budgeting date, and you'll look forward to doing it the next time the need arises.
Building a website is a two-person job, and you can quickly turn it in a date night extravaganza. If you've never built a site, don't worry, it's not that difficult. There are simple website builders that allow you to focus on the content of your site and not the mechanics behind it. The fun part will be deciding what to put on your website. Will you make your site a storefront, a personal homepage, or something, unlike anything anyone has ever seen before? Explore your interests and allow each other plenty of room for creativity so that the site reflects their personality.
Fun & Games
Nothing brings out the smiles and giggles during a date quite like bumper cars. Bumping into each other becomes addictive, and it's something that you can't stop doing. Bumper cars are fun because each of you gets to drive your own vehicle. You can chase each other, bump into each other, or even try to race. You can't help but have a great time when you're driving around trying to avoid (or cause!) a collision. Don't be surprised when the two of you want to do it again after the bumper cars come to a stop, and you know your time is up.
Fun & Games
Bungee jumping is an adrenaline junkie's dream come true. The feeling of falling towards the earth and then immediately being jolted back is something that words can't explain. The excitement, exhilaration, and fear are all things that quickly go through someone's mind as they're about to take the plunge. The sound of the others screaming as they plunge is something you will never forget. The rush is so intense that you may find yourselves trying to race each other back to the top to do it all over again.
