Food & Drink
Quite a few couples think that going to a bar or restaurant during happy hour is all about discounted drinks. You will find that quite a few establishments offer discounted appetizers and also meals during this time. If you don't drink, it's no big deal because you can get a great deal on finger foods and sometimes meals. A happy hour date with your spouse is all about letting your hair down and enjoying the moment. Eat some chicken wings, talk about how work has been going, and enjoy being in the presence of the person you love more than anyone else. Happy hour is about, well, being happy, and that's the attitude you should have while enjoying your date.
Enjoy the view of where you live by going on a helicopter ride. Are there areas in your city that are significant to you and your spouse? Ask the pilot if they can fly over those areas.

Don't forget to give each other a kiss while you're hovering over your city. A kiss high in the sky always feels so special.
Hiking is something you can do at your local park, or you can also do it in the wilderness. City parks are a sanctuary for city dwellers as they offer up a rare opportunity to see wildlife not far from the concrete jungle. All you need is a comfortable pair of shoes and the desire to walk to turn hiking into a great date. Bring along a lunch, and you've got yourself a picnic in the open outdoors. It's also fun to try to identify wildflowers and animals while you're going on a hike. For the more adventurous or athetic, pick a more difficult hike with a better payoff for finishing it.
Going to a hockey game is a date night idea for two people who love to watch people play on the ice. Bring a little extra cash so you can enjoy a bite to eat and a soda while watching the big game. The fun thing to do is to ask the other which team they think will win. Throw down a friendly wager if you disagree. Ask each other what you think the final score will be, and it'll be exciting to see who is right. Hockey is a fast-paced game where the fans let loose, and sometimes people act wild. The look on your face when your spouse goes crazy will be priceless.
Every home needs a little sprucing up now and then. Turn your date night into a home decorating extravaganza. Sometimes it's fun to allow your spouse to control every aspect of the decorating to see what ideas they come up with. You can have home decorating dates every week to change up the decor if one of you has wildly different tastes than the other. Go all out and rearrange your furniture, add new artwork, and maybe even paint the walls if that's something you can do. If neither of you know anything about interior design or how to decorate your home there are a million ideas online for inspiration.
Break out your old clothes and your tools and get to work doing those home renovations that you've been putting off. Doing activities such as home improvement does a lot more than making your house a more livable place; it also strengthens your relationship. You're bound to get into situations where you get on your spouse's nerves. Somehow you work through those situations, and as a couple, you become stronger on the other side. If you're new to DIY projects, start doing small tasks, and work your way up to professional level remodeling.
Horseback riding connects humans and animals in a way that few things can. A horse is a majestic animal, and many city folks have no idea of how real these words are. Inexperienced couples can receive horseback riding lessons before heading off to the big trail. The real fun happens when the two of you can connect with the animals. When you share a bond with the horses, that's when your date takes a turn. You'll understand why people have been so fond of horses after just one horseback ride. Every horse has its own personality, and you'll learn that the longer you're taking it for a ride.
Riding in a horsedrawn carriage feels like a blast from the past. The two of you can sit back in the carriage while enjoying this old fashioned elegance.

Times like these don't require much creativity since you can look around and see what's so incredible about the moment. The sound of the horses walking, the closeness of the two of you sitting together, and the open-air aspect of the carriage all create a romantic atmosphere that is unique to itself.

Laughing is something that both of you do when you miss the target by a mile. Playing horseshoes doesn't take much skill, but it's a challenging sport to perfect. Take turns tossing the horseshoes and keep score to see who performs better. Before you know it, you'll have to game down pat, and the two of you will become competitors.
Health & Wellness
A relaxing soak in the hot tub is what every couple needs sometimes. Stress has a way of building up over time, and often, when it does, couples don't talk. A dip in the hot tub might just be what your body and relationship need. Find some relaxing music on your smartphone and sit close to each other while enjoying the warm water. Allow the mood to carry itself wherever you want it to go. The two of you need some alone time, and there's no better way to enjoy being around each other than to do so in bubbling hot water.

Discuss what you like and dislike about the houses to learn what your spouse's dream home is. Remember, this isn't just for serious buyers, this is a fun activity to just dream about your future together.
House sitting is a fun way to get out of your own home and experience new places. When you house site for someone else you agree to watch over their home while they are away.

Get suggestions from each other on how you can improve your own home. House sitting isn't a difficult task, and that means you will have plenty of time together. If done right you can combine house sitting and travel for a neat way to experience new places while keeping your travel costs down.

You can't ignore each other when you are a part of the wilderness. The closeness you share while out in the middle of nowhere will increase your bond strength. Also, if you're able to bag something, then you'll have fresh meat for dinner.
