Mr. Serious and I have been married 11 years and together for 17 years at the end of this month. That’s a lot of years and a lot of dates. While going out to dinner and having a drink is fun, it can feel like we are in a rut, so we like to mix it up a bit. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s always good to reassess the date ideas.
When we get stuck and run out of new ideas, we ask friends or even Facebook for ideas and they’ve always pulled through. I never would have thought of some of these fun activities single or with a date. Many of them would make a great girls night out, too. Even better? If we can get a deal or a discount!
12 Non-traditional Date Ideas
1. Craft Beer or Wine Tasting
If you want to have your own wine tasting at home, purchase a kit that will tell you exactly how to do the wine tasting and what all you will need. Not only will this be fun, but you will save money, too.
2. Go Karting, Arcade Games, and Bowling
4. FunRun, especially one with a theme
5. Shooting Guns at a Gun Range
6. Fishing Trip
Fishing poles are a requirement for a fishing trip. It might be something you have but maybe you only have one of. Unless you are fishing for small fish with a net, I’d recommending making sure you have at least two fishing poles. And, check to make sure they work and you have all of the necessary equipment (fishing line, bait, weights, etc) depending on what you are fishing for.
