You may have always considered a date and a vacation two different things, but isn't a vacation just a long-lasting date? Your vacation might last a matter of days, or maybe even a week or more. If you've got a few days to spend, why not go on a train ride? You'll get to see the beautiful backcountry and travel the elegant way. Flying is also a great mode of transportation since you can go to hundreds, if not thousands of destinations, in a mere matter of hours. Why not take a short flight and go to someplace you've never been to during your date? Vacations like these are so precious because they're mini getaways that enable you to let your hair down and enjoy life as a couple.
Did you know you can rent a home for as short of a period as a day or even a week? Why not rent a home and go on vacation? Scour the internet and find a home that is near all the attractions that you want to be near. If you've got the cash to burn, turn your vacation date into something a little more permanent by renting it for several weeks. Spending a few weeks in the area will enable you to feel where you're at. If you're the type who doesn't like short vacations, you'll love renting a home and having an extended vacation. Staying in the comfort of an actual house or apartment beats out a hotel stay any day.
Everyone always turns their head when they see a classic car rolling down the street. Couples can do everything from minor vehicle restoration to a full-blown restoration. If you're the type of couple who sees a hunk of rusted out metal and thinks it's a beautiful thing, then this is a date for you. The level of restoration you're able to do will depend on the skills and tools you have in the garage. Everyone can do little things like work with the interior or patch up some paint chips. If you're really good at turning a junker into a masterpiece, you might even consider starting a family business doing retro car restorations.
If you have videos of friends or family, they might benefit from a little editing. Holiday videos are fun to share, but they can have quite a bit of dead air. Why not set up a date where you go through the videos and edit them? Pop yourself a bowl of popcorn, plop down in front of the computer, and have a good time going back and watching how much fun you had. You'll get to relive the moments while also preserving them for others to enjoy. You don't need to be a video editing whiz, do your best to present the fun you had while recording it.
Fun & Games
There are two great ways to play video games - you can hit up your local arcade or you can play games at home. If you have a game console, then go ahead and make the most of it. If not, don't sweat it, since you can use your smartphone to play games. The two of you can take turns and see who does better. You'll be surprised by how involved you are in the other's gameplay. It won't be long until you are jerking back in excitement when your spouse jumps on the ledge or has an ill-fated encounter with a bad guy. If your game collection is old and boring try renting a few new games or finding free games to play on your phone, tablet or PC.
Video tutorials can teach you everything from how to create a web page to how to bake a cake from scratch. YouTube is the number one source of free video tutorials. Although there are plenty of paid tutorials that you can get if you want high-quality or hard to find information. If you can watch YouTube on your television, it would make the date an even better viewing event. The possibilities are endless when it comes to snacks and finger foods to eat while you watch the video tutorials. Learning how to do something new is always a great thing, and it's a lot more fun when you're doing it with your spouse. You'll be able to help each other when it comes time to put what you learned in the video to good use.
Arts & Culture
Everyone has a smartphone these days, and along with it is a video camera. Have you ever thought about it to make a short movie? The first thing you need to do is to write a short script for your film. Why not set up a few dates? The first date can be writing your script while the second and third could be for filming and editing the movie itself. If you're feeling adventurous, you can adlib the entire film from start to finish. If you go that route, you can skip writing a script and go straight to work filming your movie. For added fun, share your video on YouTube with your friends and family and see how they react to it.
Fun & Games
A watch party is a great double date idea for married couples who want to go out on a date with others, but don't want to or can't leave. A watch party is where you watch TV, streaming or other videos with friends, either together or virtually. You could also do the same thing with YouTube videos and comment about them over a video app like Skype. The whole point is, you and another couple are watching something together and discussing or commenting on it. Where you watch the videos or the type of content is irrelevant. A watch party is a great way for couples to spend time with people they haven't seen in a while and want to have light-hearted fun in the process.

Every year virtual reality becomes much more detailed and far more lifelike. Going on a virtual reality date isn't as far-fetched as it sounds. If the two of you have your own headsets, then going on a virtual reality date is a cinch. You just pick the place to go to in your own world and have all kinds of fun. There are places where you can rent the gear and have everything provided. The world around you will never be the same again after the two of you realize that there's much more out there than what meets the eye. Virtual reality expands on the world as we know it and creates the type of fantasy existence that was only a fantasy until now.
There are undoubtedly places all over the world that you'd like to go, but can't for one reason or the other. You may have always dreamed of seeing the pyramids in Egypt, but aren't able to. Going on a virtual tour is the next best thing, and it can be done in the comfort of your home. Both of you need to sit in front of the computer and then allow the magic of the internet to do its thing. Before long, you'll feel like you're right there, seeing the sights and sounds that you've always wanted to experience. For added fun, whip up some dishes eaten by the locals of the people native to where you're taking the tour. You'll then be able to see, hear, and taste the area, bringing it even closer to home.
Every individual and couple has hopes and dreams. A vision board or dream board enables you to envision your dreams in a way that puts them in pictures. For those who don't know what a dream board is, it's a collage where you put pictures of what you want your life to be like. You can have photos of what you hope your dream job is someday, the home you've always wanted to live in, or anything else you can think of. The focus of a dream board is always on the future. You're trying to represent what you want your future to be like visually. It will be both surprising and helpful to know what your spouse wants the future to be like to help them pursue it.
Events & Attractions
A volcano is a natural wonder of nature that is as dangerous as it is beautiful. If you've never seen a volcano up close, it makes for a perfect date. Guided tours are the best way to see a volcano since the tour guide can educate you about what you're seeing. It's also fun to ask the tour guide questions and learn about all the details about the volcano. The surrounding area of a volcano can be filled with all kinds of evidence from its last eruption. Pay close attention to the ground you're walking on since it might have been molten lava not that long ago.
Going to watch a volleyball game is a great way to spend time with each other and to turn watching a popular sport into a date. Volleyball is an exciting sport, and that's what drives so many spectators to watch the games. Don't be shy about showing your support for your local team by wearing the proper colors or clothing that features the team's logo. Cheer on your favorite team and give them the boost that they need while making your date even more exciting. You will feel like you're cheering played a part in their winning if your favorite team goes on to be victorious.
Volleyball is an excellent workout activity that often also gets you outside. There are two ways you can turn this sport into a fun date night adventure. The first would be to ask an existing game of volleyball if you can join. You and your spouse can be on opposing teams or whatever the other players are up for. Another way to play volleyball would be to compete with each other directly. If you have a volleyball and there's an unoccupied net, then compete against each other. Wear appropriate clothing and bring along a couple of bottles of water for the maximum amount of fun.
Volleyball is an exciting sport to watch on television, and it is a fantastic date idea. Watching volleyball is so much fun because you never know what the outcome is going to be. Each volley can be more exciting than the last and it can be so much fun to see how long the players can go without the volley coming to an end. Have plenty of snacks, ice cream, or whatever both of you like on hand to munch on while watching TV. If both of you consider yourselves to be volleyball aficionados, you might want to prepare a special meal to celebrate watching the big event. If you are fans of a particular team, show your team spirit by decorating your living room or wearing the colors of your favorite team.
Causes & Service
Churches, soup kitchens, and food banks all need volunteers. Your next date night could help those in need while also increasing your bond. The two of you could volunteer to clean a soup kitchen or to stock the shelves of a food bank. If you're an animal lover, contact your local animal shelter and see if they need volunteers. The love that you share for each other can impact your community by turning your date night into something that helps those who are less fortunate. Make yourself available during times when most people can't volunteer on days such as weekends to increase your odds of being able to help out.

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.

The day you got married changed your life forever. You love your spouse even more today than you did on that wonderful day. No one fully knows when they get married, the impact it will have on them. It is a great way to show your spouse how much they mean to you by renewing your wedding vows. The most important day of your life was the day you exchanged your wedding vows. Renewing your vows doesn't need to be as elaborate as when you got married. What you're trying to do more than anything else is to convey how special your spouse is to you and how much you value your marriage to them.
