Discuss amongst yourselves after visiting the planetarium the things that you learned that you had no idea about before going there.

The blog's purpose may only be to connect your family members, so they know what's happening in your life. Set aside one evening a week or a month and create a blog post together. Blogging can be quite an enjoyable experience, and it can also be profitable, depending on the topic you're writing about.

Several computer languages are easy enough to learn that you can have a whole lot of fun with. If the two of you are programmers by profession, you can work on a project together while on a date. It might be a fun task to try to sell your project after it has been completed. You might also consider making your program open source so that the public can enjoy the fruits of your date for free.

The pursuit of hidden treasure is always exciting. A treasure hunting date can be even more exciting if you find something during your hunt. The best places to search for hidden treasure are historical sites that people have long forgotten about. Will you find a treasure chest filled with gold and jewels? Probably not, but you might find some old relics, coins, or any metal artifacts that can stand the test of time. Get ahold of some old maps, a compass, a metal detector or whatever tools to make the job easier and head out on the hunt. If you want to take it a different direction, hide some treasure and see if your spouse can find it. No matter if you wish to find hidden treasure or hide it yourself, a date like this will get you outside and enjoying some fresh air and adventure.

It always seems like there's an election right around the corner. Have you ever thought about turning voting day into a date? Most people vote close to home, so you're never too far away from the voting booth. You can walk to the polling station and get a little fresh air. Why not go out to eat after you're done voting? If that isn't your cup of tea, then bring a picnic and find someplace to eat. The act of voting itself can be turned into a date. Voting is a duty that doesn't have to be dull and boring. You can turn it into a fun date, and the two of you can talk about the issues on the way to vote and after you've voted. The debate the two of you have may end up being more entertaining than what you see on those cable news channels.
