10 Ideas for a Unique and Memorable Date

While a romantic candlelit dinner or night out for drinks can certainly make for a great date, it can be fun to stretch yourself outside your comfort zone and try something new—maybe even a little daring 😊

Whether you’re looking to engage in meaningful yet witty banter, learn something new together, or let loose for a fun night out on the town, we’ve created a list of 10 ideas to ensure that you and your special someone make it a date neither of you will ever forget!

1. Jam out at a concert/live show

While it is important to ensure that you and your date both share similar taste in music, there is something unique about this experience. With live music, a fun environment, and positive vibes, you are both sure to have a great time. Bass up, hair down!

2. Sunday Brunch

What’s better than sunshine and mimosas? Especially if chemistry is in the air…

For those of you that love to unleash your inner foodie with that special someone, brunch is a fun alternative to the normal dinner routine. Bon Appétit!

3. Have a picnic

Grab a blanket, your snack of choice, and a bottle of vino. What makes for a better setting to unwind and engage in conversation than somewhere peaceful outdoors?

(TIP: catch the sunset for brownie points!)

4. Take a class

There is something endearing about the idea of learning something new together. Nowadays, it is easy to find a cooking class, or ballroom dancing lesson right around the corner. This date idea is a great way to show off your skills in the kitchen, or moves out on the dance floor!

5. Have a blast at the arcade

Who says you have to act your age? Taking your date to an arcade can be both fun and interactive! Tune into your playful and competitive side while making memories together.

6. Visit a street fair/festival

Now is the time of year to take in the fresh air, smells, and tastes of the many spring and summer festivals offered in your city! Whether you’re looking for food, art, music, or activities, this is a wonderful way to spend quality time together.

7. Take a tour/visit a museum

Be a tourist for the day! Embark on a journey or engage in intellectual and philosophical conversation. For art and history lovers, there is always something new to discover!

8. Share a laugh at a comedy club

Who doesn’t love to laugh? And what’s sexier than a sense of humor? Comedy clubs and improv shows are great date ideas for those of you who try not to take life too seriously. Kick back, relax, and enjoy a hysterical night together!

9. Wine Tasting

Whether you enjoy sipping Rosé on a warm and sunny day, or cozying up with a glass of red, wine tasting is the perfect date idea for any time of the year. Fear not if you do not have access to a local winery; many restaurants offer wine tasting options as well. Cheers!

10. Make Plans to Not Make Plans

Be spontaneous! Have fun getting lost together while discovering new places. Plan to meet up somewhere and leave the rest up to fate. You never know what you’re going to find. Let the adventure begin!
