20 Creative Dates for Couples
Looking for a creative date idea and don’t know where to start? Are you tired of the same old thing? Don’t settle for the same tired ideas, kick it up a notch, and add some adventure. These ideas will just be the beginning. Have fun on your dating adventure.

  • Dinner Train/Murder Mystery - Climb aboard for a leisurely
    dinner or for dinner and a murder! You might also consider a murder
    mystery party, if you can’t find a train. They’re both great fun. I’ve
    done them both and had a great time!

  • Improv Comedy Club - An Improv Comedy club is a great date
    night idea. There’s lots of laughs and you can become part of the
    action and fun! Great date.

  • Catch a Train or Drive - Make a trip to a nearby city, one you’re
    not familiar with. Have dinner, see the sites, go to a flea market or
    antique mall. Or do something that is unique to that area.

  • Themed picnic - Choose a theme, like the1950’s, a color themed
    picnic or a nature lover’s picnic. Gather your picnic supplies, your
    blanket and of course the food then get out there and make some date
    night memories.

  • Stroll in the Park - Pick a park with a nice trail. Put on your
    comfortable clothes, grab a backpack, your drinks, some snacks (or
    pack a lunch for a long trip) and explore nature together.

  • Cosmic Bowling - Rock those pins in retro style. Loud music, laser
    lights, disco lights, black lights, runway lights and haze machines
    pumping out fog will make for an interesting time bowling.

  • Community Calendar Check out your local community calendar.
    See what kinds of events are happening around town. Check for the
    free events such as live music, art festivals, nature and gardening
    shows and whole lot more.

  • Laser Tag - It’s great for a playful date as long as it’s all done
    in fun. It can be done inside or out or with your friends.

  • Amusement Park - Head out to an amusement park (pack some
    snacks if you want) and make a day of it. Make sure to take your hat
    and sun screen!

  • Zip Line - Take a zip line tour or buy a zip line kit and build one
    in your backyard. Either way it would be a date to remember.

  • Skydiving Simulator Go belly first into a skydiving simulator. It’s
    a safe way to test your wings without having to jump from an airplane. A
    flying fun date.

  • Themed Date Night - Have a Black and White date night. Grab a
    couple of old black and white movies, break out the snacks and
    popcorn for an evening of fun. Put out all your black and white
    decorations, pearls, platters, etc. You could also make favorite dishes
    from that era instead of the standard movie fare.

  • Go on a Tour - Take a walking tour or riding guided tour.
    If it’s during Halloween try a ghostly tour. There are many different
    types and themes for every taste.

  • Magical Mystery Tour - Book a mystery vacation. It’s a surprise.
    You don’t know where you’re going until you arrive at the airport. You
    give the company your information – budget, likes, dislikes, etc., and
    they book a mystery vacation for you.

  • Throw Together Potluck - This can be for two or more. It’s a potluck
    challenge. Each participant puts together dishes made only with food
    on hand. It’s a good way to let your creative chef out.

  • Botanical Gardens - Plan a trip to the local botanical gardens. It’s
    a relaxing way to enjoy the different gardens and learn about nature.
    Some also have entertainment.

  • Film Festival - Order some of your favorite movies or check out
    some DVD’s from the library. You can also invite friends to add more fun
    and have them bring movies as well. Fix some snacks and settle in for an
    afternoon or evening of movie watching fun.

  • Camp in Your Own Backyard - Pitch a tent, grab your sleeping
    bags, and head to your backyard. Bring along lighting, easy to handle
    games and anything else that would be fun. It’s free and an easy and
    fun date night.

  • Go Geocaching - Go on a real-world, GPS-enabled, outdoor
    treasure hunt. You’ll go to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then
    attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

  • Triathlon of Fun - Pick three activities you both enjoy and compete
    in a 'triathlon’. Things to do could be eating your favorite candy,
    playing a favorite video game and swimming. The sky’s the limit.

These date night ideas are just the beginning. Some can be done for free others require some planning but all have the potential for fun and many wonderful memories. You may not like everything on this list but there’s sure to be at least one or two date ideas that you’d like to try. Dive in and have fun!
Psst…Be sure to take lots of pictures!
