A dinner and a movie is the staple date but there are alternative date ideas that could offer a different kind of fun and reveal a different side of your date that you will not normally see if you do the conventional dinner and movie date.
It will also break the monotony which is important if you are in a long-time relationhip. Often, the magic of a relationship disappears when you fall into a routine. It is always a great idea to pursue new activities that will put some new flavour in your relationship. If you are not yet in a relationship, these activities could reveal to you more about the personality of the person you are dating.
10. The Museum
Museum is one of the most underrated places of entertainment in the world. However, you will be surprised to find out some the most interesting things in it. There are different kinds of museums. There is the historical museum that contains historical artifacts of different era, a historical event, or even about an important person in history. There are museums devoted to art, too. There are also museums that are more contemporary in nature. New Zealand, for example, houses musuems that are devoted to the props used in the making of the movie Lord of the Rings.
If you are a lover of art, you will have a blast rediscovering pieces of art that you used to just read about or seeing historical items that you used to just discuss in school.
If you hate history or art, then you can still laugh about the silliness of the things you see. Needless to say, you need to have some sense of humour.
Most of you might have been on a road trip, why don’t you put a little twist on it. Bike from your city to another. This is going to be a good work-out and would give you a new perspective in appreciating the view of the places you used to ignore when you are inside a car.
There are also groups that regularly bike cross country. You can join them and get new friends as well.
8. A Bookstore or Library
Libraries have earned the reputation for being so boring. This couldn’t be more false. Libraries have evolved with time. Many libraries host puppet shows, poetry reading, movie showing, magic shows, and other kinds of fun entertainment. You may think it is old fashion but how many times and how many venues will allow you to enjoy some old-fashion entertainment?
Never understimate the amount of fun going back into the past.
7. A Pet Store or Animal Shelter
This will be a good one for animal lovers. Visiting different kinds of pet stores will be a natural high. However, don’t limit yourself to a dog pound and other conventional pet store. Go ahead and visit even the exotic pet museums.
You can also go and volunteer in an animal shelter. Spending your day playing with the dogs, cleaning animal poop, and assisting in other work can be taxing but definitely worth it.
6. Mini Golf
Golf can be one of the most boring sport to many but mini-golf, take it from me, is different
Yes, it follows the basic. You get the golf ball into a hole but it offers some of the best and funniest obstacles for you and your golf ball. Sometimes, missing the hole will make you follow through a theme park-like obstacle.
Yeah, that’s what it is, golf with a theme park twist.
