56 Date Ideas to Check Off Your List

How many bridal showers have you been to where they asked you to write a “date idea” on a popsicle stick or notecard? Probably about 2,397.

Are you serious? I can barely come up with my own date ideas that are interesting let alone find something fun for a different couple with different interests. I literally write “go out to dinner” every single time. Take that, bridal shower!

Although one bridal shower after writing my usual lame date idea I thought to myself, “If I wasn’t being such a sarcastic jerk, what would I write as my real date idea?”

I had no idea. All my ideas were basic or boring. I thought, “So this is why brides make other people come up with their own date ideas for them”. I took some time to think about the things my husband and I enjoy doing, and the things that our area offers. I did come up with a few that we have either tried or have added to our date night to-do list.

  1. Go gamble! Have a local Casino? Go in with a certain amount of money and see what you leave with.
  2. Grab a drink, or two or three. If you have a local winery or brewery go have a tour together and find a drink you both enjoy to bring home.
  3. Ride some rides. Travel to the nearest amusement park for some rollercoaster rides.
  4. Take a class together. Cooking, horseback riding, dancing, whatever you think would be fun to try.
  5. Find a local Escape Room and see if you can make it out in an hour.
  6. Go to a local ghost tour.
  7. Rent a cart and go golfing.
  8. Go to some silly dinner theater event like Medieval Times.
  9. Do a 5K together. Are you runners? Even if you’re not there are some fun 5K’s out there that you could try. It would definitely be okay to even walk!
  10. Ice cream date!
