A weekend in a cabin is a great way to get away from all the stresses that life has to offer. Rent a cabin for a couple of nights, bring some food, and enjoy being away from city life. You should spend time with each other and turn off any electronic devices that might get in the way of your enjoyment. Couples need time to bond and to be together, and there is no better way to do it than by being in the middle of nowhere. Take walks through nature in between meals and enjoy being in each other's presence.
Traveling by cable car is one of the most unique ways you'll ever get from point A to point B. You also get to see the mountainside and all its surroundings like you've never seen them before. If you live in a mountain community, then a cable car date is a must-do thing for every couple at least once. If you don't live anywhere near the mountains, plan a road trip or fly to the nearest mountain. The breathtaking view from the cable car is more than enough reason why you should travel far to take advantage of this spectacular date opportunity.
Camping is more than just a few hour date, it's something that takes most of the day or more. Camping can be free or a low-cost dating idea that gets you away from it all. If you're the type that likes to live off the land, then camping is a fantastic date idea. You can go hiking, enjoy the fresh air, and spend every waking minute with each other. Many couples who enjoy the great outdoors feel that camping strengthens their relationship, and they notice stronger lines of communication after the camping adventure is over. Established campgrounds offer a way for inexperienced campers to have access to things such as running water, toilets, and other amenities that some might consider a necessity even when roughing it. Either way you go, camping is a fun date idea, especially for married couples.
Going canoeing can be an all-day adventure or something you do for a few hours. For the ultimate canoeing date, bring along a lunch and eat it in the wilderness. The summer months are the best time to go canoeing, but it's an activity that you can do as long as the weather is nice. Each of you will have fun learning how to row in sync with each other. It takes a little practice, but before too long, you'll be rowing together in a matter of no time. Canoeing enables you to connect to the great outdoors while also enjoying a few precious moments together.
Events & Attractions
Local car shows are a great dose of nostalgia for anyone who's into antique automobiles. Usually, the shows have plenty of cars, live music, and stands selling all kinds of food. An entire evening can be planned around a car show. Walk around and try to identify the cars without looking at their place cards. If neither of you knows what the car is, ask the owner. Every owner at a show loves to talk about their car. Also, it's fun to go around and select what you consider your dream car. It will be neat to see if the two of you choose the same car. Bring your camera or phones to take pictures of the coolest cars and as many selfies as you can.
Fun & Games
A deck of cards can provide endless hours of fun. Put away anything that distracts you and sit on the floor and play cards. It doesn't matter if you're playing a simple game like Go Fish or a complicated game like poker. If you're not familiar with many card games, search online and you'll find dozens with simple rules. It's not winning and losing that matters, it's the amount of fun that you have. Snacks and cold drinks add to the enjoyment of playing cards together. If you want to kick your hard game up a notch order a pizza or buy a frozen one at the store and turn it into a card and pizza party.
The carnival might come to town only once a year, but when it's around it's the perfect date. You already know when the carnival is coming to town long before it ever does. Ask your boss for the day off, and the two of you can have fun like teenagers. Ride the rides, eat the food, and take selfies while doing all sorts of things. The fair is the one place where everyone feels the same no matter how old you are. Try to ride at least one thing that makes the two of you freak out. You'll always remember the time that you almost wet yourself because the ride was too scary.
Causes & Service
The joy of Christmas is something that people can never get enough of. Caroling is a fun way to spread the holiday cheer that so many people desperately lack. You can either go caroling in your own neighborhood or visit friends and sing outside where they live. If you know other couples who are into caroling, you could turn it into a double or group date. After you're done caroling, go inside and warm your bones with a hot foot or drink. There's no better way to end your caroling date than with a cup of sweet, creamy hot chocolate and maybe a cookie or two.
Fun & Games
A ride on a carousel never ends with just one go around. The two of you will enjoy yourself so much that you'll want to do it again and again. Take a ride on the carousel together, and then do it separately. Take pictures and make videos of each other on the carousel. It's hard not to have fun when you're doing something that instantly brings you back to your childhood. It won't be surprising if your carousel date ends up being something you do yearly. There is no age limit on how much fun you can have while on a carousel, and that's why it makes for a perfect date night activity. Be sure to snap a few selfies for fun reminders of a great night.
Every car owner knows that they need to change their oil. Many car owners don't change the oil often enough in their cars. If the two of you have never changed a car's oil, you're in for a really exciting adventure. Changing the oil isn't difficult, but it can be messy for first-timers. If one of you has changed the oil before, none of it will be much of a surprise to you. The oil in your car is the lifeblood of your engine. It's surprising to see what the oil looks like, and the two of you are in for a real shock with this date. Wear old clothes and make sure to have plenty of rags nearby because changing your oil is messy even for those who are highly experienced.
Events & Attractions
Those who care about their community and want to give back always have a great time at charity events. Sometimes they really roll out the red carpet for those who are willing to part ways with enough money for a good cause. Why not turn a date into something that you'll enjoy that will also help others? A gala of goodwill is what you'll enjoy, and it'll be one of those events that stick with you for a lifetime. Doing a good deed never feels better than when you get to share it with someone you love.
Christmas lights and decorations can really bring the Christmas season alive. As a fun date idea, take a stroll through your own neighborhood or a drive anywhere else that you'd like. Take in the lights, decorations and even the feel of the cold air on your cheeks as you go. Setting up your own decorations can also be a fun activity. Setting up Christmas lights, no matter if it's inside your home or outside, is a two-person job. Why not turn this event into a date night activity? It's even more fun if you treat yourselves with a cup of hot chocolate after you're done. You'll think about the hot chocolate the entire time that you're stringing up the lights. Talk about some of your favorite Christmas memories from years gone by while you're putting up the lights. If you have children, then there are plenty of memories to talk about while you put up the lights.
The circus is fun for all ages. Seeing the clowns, the animals, and all the hijinks is a total blast. The circus is best enjoyed with plenty of snacks and refreshing beverages. If you're lucky, one of the clowns will ask you to join them in their fun. A fun-filled evening is what you'll have when the circus comes to town. Sometimes during intermission, the clowns will pose with the audience, and they might have some animals with them too. Pay to have your picture taken so that you can always remember the great time the two of you had at the circus.
Something magical happens when it gets dark outside, and the city you live in begins to light up. A drive through your city at night opens up a new world that you rarely see if you're never out late. Pay attention to all the signs and how your favorite stores and restaurants look when they're illuminated. The world comes alive at night, and there's no better proof of that than when the neon lights start to flicker. Point out which signs are your favorite and try to guess which ones your spouse might like the most. Try to find a little extra elevation for an even more beautiful scene.
A stroll through a city park is as good for the mind as it is the body. Put on some comfortable shoes, wear loose-fitting clothing, and put one foot in front of the other and enjoy the great outdoors. Not only are you getting a healthy dose of exercise, but going for a walk on a date night is an excellent way of opening the lines of communication. Don't forget to hold hands while the two of you are walking; it will increase the likelihood that you talk to each other. Sometimes dates like this aren't about the activity, but the opportunity to spend some quality alone time together.
Fun & Games
Cliff jumping takes quite a bit of courage, and it's something that an adventurous couple can pull off. The most exciting cliffs to jump off are those that are near deep bodies of water. Make sure you do your research before doing any cliff jumping so that you can find a safe place to do it. Nothing is more exciting than falling towards the water and knowing that at any minute you're going to smack right into it. For added excitement, both of you should jump off of the cliff at the same time. The look on each other's face will be priceless as you fall towards the water. The expression on both of your faces will be pure ecstatic when you rise to the water and first look at the other.
Cloud watching is a free activity that gives you an insight into the inner working of your spouse's mind. All you do is find a comfortable place to sit or lay and look up towards the heavens. Each of you says the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the clouds. Use this moment to get close to each other and to enjoy being in their arms. It's less about the clouds than it is about being together. Turn your cloud watching into a picnic and enjoy an even longer time outside together. Cloud watching dates tend to be spontaneous and don't be surprised if it morphs into something else entirely.
Food & Drink
Hitting up your local coffee shop or juice bar is a great date idea for married couples. If you want to kick up your date a few notches, get something sweet to go along with your drinks. Most coffee shops have cookies, donuts, or other pastries that you can enjoy while sipping on your coffee. The old school donut shops are so much fun because they usually have delicious fresh donuts and bottomless cups of coffee. The quality of coffee at restaurants has increased over the years, and even fast-food restaurants now have good enough coffee to enjoy during a date.
If you're ready to laugh up a storm, then a comedy show is an excellent idea for any couple seeking some date night fun. A comedy show is the purest form of entertainment since there is nothing in between you and the comic. After the comedy show, talk to your spouse about what jokes they found the funniest. You and your spouse probably have a different sense of humor, and you'll get a feel for that when you hear what jokes your spouse liked the most. Comedy clubs are laid back places where you can let your hair down and enjoy an evening without being too fussy.
Both free and paid concerts offer up exciting live entertainment that is suitable for any date night. Keep an eye out to see if your favorite band is coming to town. Don't just hold out for your favorite bands though, the experience is worth it for any music that you enjoy. You can turn a concert night into a whole event. Go out to eat, have a little dessert, and then go to the concert. If you can't do all that, then going to the concert is enough. Some couples might not want to go if they can't afford front row seats, but that shouldn't be a concern. Sometimes it's best to be further away from the stage because it can be too noisy.
