With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I would share 25 unique date night ideas that I think you’ll all love. I’m positive these ideas will work for many different couples. There’s something here for everyone.
1. Have a game night
This is a great idea for couples who enjoy playing cards or board games. You could even invite over some friends and have a couples game night.
2. Go to an outdoor movie
Try looking up outdoor movie events in your city. It’s definitely something you and your partner should experience at least once.
3. Go dancing
If you and your partner have never been dancing, consider going to a dance club or taking a class at a dance studio.
4. Dress up and go out for drinks
Get dressed up and go to your favorite restaurant or bar. This time, try a cocktail you’ve never tried before.
5. Go ice-skating
Ice-skating is a great idea for this time of the year. Remember, no one expects you to be a professional. It’s all for fun. The goal is to have a good time.
6. Have a candle light dinner
Order takeout, or make plans to cook your favorite meal. Then, light some candles, play soft music, eat, and enjoy each other’s company.
7. Visit a museum
If you and your partner are looking for a more educational date night experience, museums are the way to go.
8. Go wine tasting
This is perfect for couples who love wine and are interested in trying different flavors and brands.
9. Go to a concert
If you and your partner enjoy large crowds and loud music, you should consider going to a concert.
10. Attend a paint and sip class
This is another great idea for couples who are open to trying something new. You get to sip some wine and learn how to paint.
11. Take a late night stroll
You’ll be surprised how much the two of you enjoy a late night stroll. It’ll give you some time to bond and talk about the good times you’ve had together.
12. Go bike riding
Take a bike ride down memory lane. This is another way for the two of you to bond and reminisce about the good times.
13. Go horseback riding
Horseback riding is one of the most romantic dates in my opinion. You and your partner will have a chance to enjoy nature and peaceful, quality time together.
14. Go camping
You don’t have to leave home to go camping. You can do it in your backyard. All you need is camping equipment, s’mores, and each other’s company.
15. Go to a sporting event
This is a great idea for first dates. You’ll have something to talk about the entire time. There’s good food/drinks and lots of exciting energy.
16. Plan a picnic
This one is perfect for couples on a budget. All you need is a blanket and a combination of your favorite snacks. Make it even more romantic by having a glass of wine.
17. Go to an arcade
Arcades are not only for kids. There are several adult arcades for you and your partner to enjoy.
18. Go to a comedy show
Comedy shows are also great for first dates. They can help reduce some of the pressure and keep you both entertained the entire time.
19. Sneak away and get a room
Great idea for couples with kids, or couples who don’t live together. This will give you a chance to get away and have some privacy.
20. Attend a play or musical
If you and your partner normally go to the movies, consider going to a play or musical. They’re usually very entertaining.
21. Relax by the beach
If you live near one, or if you’re visiting, consider relaxing by the beach with your partner and listening to the sound of the waves. Some beaches get cold at night, so remember to take a blanket or a sweater.
22. Go to the fair
The fair is a fun way to add thrill and excitement to your date. You’ll have plenty of time to bond and get to know each other on rides.
23. Go to the casino
Casinos are great if you and your partner want to let loose for the night and really have a good time, but only go if you’re willing to spend some coins. If one or both of you win big, that’ll be a date you’ll never forget.
24. Have dinner at an upscale restaurant
Set aside time to eat at that fancy restaurant you both have been wanting to go to. Be prepared to splurge a little.
25. Recreate your first date
This is probably my favorite date night idea. Nothing says romantic like recreating your very first date. This idea is perfect for a first year anniversary.
