Events & Attractions
Community events are a great way to give back to the community. Usually, a community event will benefit the community somehow if nothing other than ginning up business for local merchants. Sometimes you can get lucky, and the event will be something specific that will directly help someone in your community. These are the dates when you don't care about how much things cost or if something is a good value. Go and enjoy yourselves on your date while supporting a good cause. If there are no current community events, consider putting one on yourselves and setting aside all the proceeds to a local charity with broad support from the community.
A community garden is an excellent place for those who want to raise fruits and vegetables but don't have a place to do so where they live. Some community gardens donate the food to the poor or to food banks. You might consider starting a community garden with other members of your church and donate the bountiful harvest. Gardening allows you to eat fresh foods at a fraction of the cost that you'd pay at the supermarket. Also, gardening is great exercise, and it's quality time spent outside with your spouse. Eat better, get more exercise, and enjoy a lungful of clean, fresh air by having a gardening date with your spouse. You can also give away your harvest as gifts since everyone loves fresh produce, but many can't afford it.
Have you ever wondered what happens to the organic matter that you throw away in the trash? It goes to the landfill and rots. Every day you throw away things that shouldn't end up in a landfill. A great thing to do is to start composting, and you can turn it into a date. Getting everything ready might take a couple of dates. First you need to make the composting bin. You can buy the bin already made or make your own from scratch using plans found on the internet. Once everything is ready, every day you simply toss the things able to be composted in a special container inside your kitchen and you eventually take it outside to your bin. Your composting bin will need to be occasionally turned, and you can turn that into a date along with any gardening that you do with the compost.
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.
Everyone has fears, and you should get over them. Married people probably have different fears, but you might share something similar. Do you both fear heights? If so, it might be a good idea to go to the highest building you can find. Conquering your fears is an important part of personal growth. If you can both conquer the same fear at once, you'll get over a mountain that most don't. You will grow as a couple if the two of you can overcome your fears, and that will have a lasting impact on your relationship. Sit down together and make a list of your fears. Then discuss which ones you'd like to tackle with each other's help.
A conworlding date can be as complex or as simple as you want it to be. For those who don't know what conworlding is, it's where you make up your own world. The two of you can sit down on the couch and make up your own world and all that goes with it. Do you want to make horses fly? Maybe you've always wanted people to live underwater. No matter how zanny it may sound, you can make anything a reality in your world. You might want to write down your conworlding adventure to build upon it during your next date.

People live busy lives, and sometimes it's hard to prepare a home-cooked meal during the week. Have you ever thought about turning a night of cooking into a date? You can make several meals at once over a few hours if the two of you chip in on the work. You cook the food and then freeze it to eat later on during the week.

Classes & Workshops

Cooking is a great stress reliever, and it's something that benefits everyone when you sit down at mealtime and enjoy delicious food. The cooking classes you take will impact your life and the lives of others for years.

Take a few bucks along with you in case there are treats available at the end of the maze. Corn mazes typically aren't difficult to figure out, but they usually have at least one tricky situation in them. Don't be surprised if a stroll through a corn maze leads to smooching.
