Gymnastics challenges a person physically in almost every way possible. Women tend to be better at gymnastics than men, but that shouldn't stop husbands from enjoying a gymnastics date. The best place to do gymnastics is outside in the grass in case you fall down. If you're new to gymnastics, watch a few YouTube videos covering the basics. You should be able to learn how to do a few easy maneuvers quickly. After a few gymnastics dates, you may consider having them at the park to show off your skills. If you really want to turn your date into something fantastic, use your phone to play music while going through your gymnastic routine.
These days it's super easy to rent electric bikes and scooters. You probably know several areas in your community where scooters and bikes are waiting for people to rent them. Renting the electronic devices tends to be fairly easy and inexpensive as well. You can rent them by the hour or by the day, but it's best to check with the rental company if you have any questions about how much it costs. A date on a scooter or electric bike could be just going for a ride, or you could turn it into a whole day affair. The great thing about renting the scooters or bikes is, you can leave them almost anywhere you want. You don't have to take them back where you got them, and that opens the door for even more date possibilities.

A musical theatre date can be something as fancy as catching a Broadway show or watching a play put on by your local church. No matter if you live in a small town or a major metropolitan city, there is always some kind of theatre going on. You might have to pay attention to the local showtimes more closely if you live in a small town because musical theatre could only be a once a year type of thing. If you want to really make your musical theatre date even more special, go out to eat before or after the performance. Dates featuring musical theatre are often memorable because you'll talk about what you saw for years to come.
Those who enjoy the great outdoors will love going out on a date to do a little wildlife spotting. National parks are great places where you can walk around and see all kinds of wild animals. You shouldn't try to spot things such as bears unless you are prepared to defend yourself if one comes a little too close. Bird watching, insect watching, and looking for small animals is always fun. Even a stroll through a national park that doesn't turn up any significant wildlife is still a fantastic date. You get to spend time with each other and hopefully chat it up while walking around.
Playing baseball is a fun date that doesn't cost much if anything. There are so many different ways that you can turn baseball into a fantastic date. You can either find an established co-ed baseball or softball league or just find some friends or family to play with for fun. If you can't put a whole team together you can also play catch or hit the ball around together. Batting cages are also another option if you're looking to improve your game or just have some fun. If one of you is better at catching or hitting than the other they can help teach the other person. There are a lot of options out there, go ahead and play some baseball on your next date.
