The fun thing about paddle boats is that you both can do it at the same time. If one of you slacks off, then the boat won't go nearly as fast. Parks and other places with bodies of water often have paddle boats that you can rent. A couple of hours out on the water is an enjoyable experience, and it gives you a chance to spend some time with your spouse. It won't be long after you're out on the water that the two of you are talking up a storm. Before you know it, you've spent the time chatting about all the things that you've wanted to talk about. A date spent paddle boating isn't about being on the water; it's about being alone with your spouse and having the opportunity to talk and relax together.
Take a trip out on the water and enjoy a date paddleboarding. The great thing about paddleboarding is that it's not only fun but it's also a great workout for your entire body. Sometimes it's great to get out and put your body in motion. Paddleboarding allows enjoying Mother Nature while also sharing a precious moment with your spouse. Paddleboarding doesn't require you to own your own equipment, as many areas will have rentals available. Having an instructor isn't necessary since you can quickly learn how to paddleboard within a few minutes at the most.
The entire goal of paintball is to see how many times you can hit your target. Who is your target? Well, it's you and your spouse! If shooting each other is too much for either of you to handle, then you can do a little target practice. It will be fun to see who can hit the target the most with the paintballs. If you're feeling adventurous, then hunt each other in a warlike manner until all of your paintballs are gone. The winner will be the person who has the least amount of paint on them. There's something so fun about shooting each other with paintballs that it might become a regular date night activity. If you have your own equipment you can play with just the two of you or a small group of friends. Or if not, find a place that offers paintball and provides everything you need including the venue itself.
Arts & Culture
Some people take up painting as a means of self-expression and relaxation. Painting can be an inexpensive date idea that can reap all kinds of rewards. Allow your inner artist to flourish and paint what you've been bottling up for so long. It might be interesting for the two of you to work on the same project. You can either take turns painting or ask the other for input on what to paint next. If one of you is an artist while the other is not, have the master teach the apprentice how painting is done. If you want to kick up your painting date a few notches, you can both watch a famous art instructor like Bob Ross and follow along as he tells you what to do. There are tons of online tutorials or local classes that will have you painting something more than stick figures in no time.
Going to the parade requires a little preplanning, but it's not too difficult. You might need to bring lawn chairs and also find a good place to sit. It's best to find a place to sit at least an hour or so before the parade begins, depending on how many people are involved. Go online to see where the parade route is so that you can find the best possible location. If you live on the parade route, then sit in your yard. It's fun to pay attention and see if you know anyone who is in the parade. Comment on all the floats and talk about the ones you enjoyed most after the parade. Make sure to keep your smartphone handy so you can snap pictures and make videos to share with each other later on.
Parasailing combines a love of water, adventure, and the great outdoors. Going parasailing is a marvelous date for those who don't get to be outside enough. Also, if you're the type that seeks an adrenaline rush, there's no better way to get it than when you're high up parasailing. Try to find a parasailing company that can take both of you up at the same time. It will be so much fun to see how the other reacts while you're taking off and going up in the sky. The view from all the way up there is beautiful, and there is no better person to share it with than the person you love.
People watching is a free and fun activity that a married couple can do almost anywhere. Go to a park, shopping mall, or anywhere else people congregate. Watch the people and make comments to each other about the people that you see. It's a bad idea to make fun of people or to say anything that would hurt their feelings if they heard you. Pay attention to what the people are wearing, their hairstyles, and body types. Humans are the most interesting creatures on the planet, and there's nothing more fun than watching what they look like and do while in public.
There are all kinds of free personality tests that you can take online. It will be so funny to see your spouse's reaction to some of the questions. It'll be even more eye-opening when they see the results of their personality test. Pop some popcorn, pour a glass of soda and see where the questions take you. Usually, the questions take you down a path where the two of you will be chatting it up in no time flat. The real fun of a personality test isn't the test itself; it's spending time with each other. Sometimes you need a little nudge in the right direction to sit down and smell the roses, and a personality test is as good of an excuse as any.
Pet stores are a lot of fun for many different reasons, so going to one is a great date idea. If you have a pet, then take it along with you if the store allows it. Take a walk and get some exercise along with your furry friend. If you don't have a pet, walk around the pet store and consider buying one. If you're a newly married couple, you might be surprised by what type of pet your partner chooses. Sometimes the funniest thing to do is to look around at the pets and see which one looks like your spouse. You'll both burst out laughing when you tell the other which animal you think they look like.
Petsitting enables you to do something good for someone and also provides the perfect opportunity to spend some time with your spouse. If the two of you are animal lovers, then petsitting will come naturally. If you aren't, then petsitting might offer a hilarious opportunity that otherwise wouldn't exist. Or maybe the two of you are interested in getting a pet and want to try it out for a day. If you're sitting a dog, take it out for a walk. The two of you will get some much-needed exercise, and so will your furry friend. Also, some pet stores allow you to bring pets inside them. Take the dog or cat to the pet store and allow them to choose a toy. It will be nice for the animal, and the two of you will enjoy watching it react to being inside the store. Petsitting can also sometimes turn into housesitting, where you get to stay at someone else's house for a little while free of charge. In either case petsitting can be a fun date with your spouse.
Petting zoos tend to have cute furry animals that are so much fun to pet. Usually, the cost of entry into a petting zoo is a few dollars at the most. Going to a petting zoo is a great date idea if one or both of you are an animal lover. Make sure to take plenty of pictures of each other with the animals during your date. Looking back at the photos of you having so much fun at the petting zoo will be a total blast later on. The zoo's wide variety of animals ensures there is something that both of you will enjoy petting.
Arts & Culture
Photography is a fun hobby that you can share with your spouse. The enjoyable aspect of having a photography date isn't only taking the pictures but also finding interesting locations. If you have camera equipment great, but if you don't, then it's no big deal. The camera on your smartphone is probably good enough for taking amateur pictures. Try your best to scour your local area for the most exciting photo opportunities. If you really want to take your photography date to the next level, share your pictures on social media. The two of you will love to see how many people like your photos and to read the comments left by your followers.
Arts & Culture
Couples who enjoy going out and listening to instrumental music will love going to the piano bar on date night. Have a drink or two, and enjoy live music being played on a piano. Piano bars are great alternatives for people who like live music but don't like the wild bar scene. Set aside money for a taxi or have a friend pick you up if you plan on drinking. You can play dress up and wear all kinds of fancy clothes. Make it a theme night, and the two of you wear something similar, like beach vacation night or whatever strikes your fancy.
Picnics are so much fun, and there is a wide variety of ways that you can enjoy them. If you're in a hurry, hit up your local fast food restaurant for something to eat for your picnic. Those of you who have the time, share the cooking duties, and whip up something delicious in the kitchen. Bring along an old towel or blanket so you can put it down on the ground to sit on while you're eating. Parks, hiking trails, or anywhere else you can be alone while enjoying your meal are ideal spots for a picnic date.
Fun & Games
You may be thinking that making pinewood derby cars is an activity reseverd for 8-year-olds. You also may be surprised about how fun it can be. Sometimes the most fun aspect of derby car racing isn't the racing at all. Building the pinewood derby car is a lot of fun, and it's a perfect project for two people. Making the car itself is fun, but what's even more enjoyable is painting and decorating it. Allow your creative juices to flow when coming up with a unique design that is sure to wow the spectators. The car itself won't be used much, but you can keep it as a memento of the fun you shared. Keep your pinewood derby car tucked away in the garage or someplace else where you can go down memory lane when you want to think about your past times together.
Fun & Games
Table tennis is a great indoor sport that you can play all year long. Nothing gets your heart rate up like batting the ball back and forth while playing ping-pong. If you want to turn your table tennis date into something spectacular, place a little wager or the outcome of the game. Maybe say the loser has to do laundry for a week or another chore around the house. You'll be surprised by how intense each of you plays when you know something is on the line.
Events & Attractions
Going to a planetarium offers you the chance to learn about the universe. There is so much in space that you and your spouse probably know very little about. Everything you see in the sky will come to life when you're at the planetarium. Each of you will walk away with new knowledge that will change the way you think about everything. We live in a universe filled with mystery, and there is no better way to discover it than by going to a planetarium. Discuss amongst yourselves after visiting the planetarium the things that you learned that you had no idea about before going there.
A great date idea for a young couple is to plant a tree. Sure, couples of all ages can enjoy planting a tree, but there's something special about it when a young couple does it or when you move to a new place. Just think about how you'll be able to look at the tree years later and watch it grow. The tree will grow just like the love between you and your spouse does. Every year you can plant a new tree to symbolize your love and to make the world a better place. Those trees will be like your love; they will stand the test of time.
Fun & Games
How long has it been since you've played on a playground? The answer to that question is too long, and now is the perfect time to get on the swings and have some fun. Allow yourselves to be kids again, ride the swings, go down the slide, and play with a ball. Do all the things that you used to love to do as a child. You'll instantly be taken back in time when you were a child, and life was simpler. It will be interesting to see which of the toys that your spouse likes the most. The laughs and giggles will be uncontrollable when you're doing all the things you enjoyed when you were a child.
If you want to play pool, then you've got to be careful where you go. A roughneck bar might not be the ideal place for an evening game of billiards. Pool halls, bowling alleys, and even some restaurants have pool tables. Don't worry if you're any good at playing pool; sometimes it's more fun to play if you're terrible. Do learn the rules of the game though - 8-ball, 9-ball, whatever game interests you. Fire up the jukebox if they have one and just have fun. The two of you will laugh up a storm when one of you misses the cue ball. It's not about who wins the game; it's all about how much fun you have when you play pool.
