You don’t want to just settle for dinner and a movie. You want to create memories! Don’t let this Valentines become ordinary, instead surprise him or her with something a little different. These aren’t your traditional date night ideas. Most of our ideas are going to get you moving and in the outdoors. So, if you’re looking for something a little different to do this Valentine’s Day look no further!
Here are 8 unconventional date night ideas for this Valentines:
Not many people think of hiking as great first date material. Most of the time that’s true. You’re likely going to sweat and feel pretty tired after a hike. Yet, hiking has a lot to offer you for this Valentine’s Day. You can socially distance from people, get out in nature and enjoy yourself, and work with your partner towards a common goal. Studies have shown that couples feel more love towards each other when completing physical activities together. That’s not to mention, hiking in the afternoon or night allows you to stargaze with your loved one.
A progressive dinner usually entails going to multiple people’s houses and eating different foods. Let’s twist that a bit though, instead of visiting multiple people, why not take a stroll through your town eating at the best food trucks! You’ll learn more about the community, walk in-between meals to work off food, and taste some delicious food. Date night ideas like these are best when you finish your night off with your favorite ice cream!
Learning a new hobby together can be done at home or with an instructor. The best part? You don’t have to limit yourself! You can take an LTC training from a certified instructor or learn how to salsa in your backyard. Common skills you can learn with your partner:
Turn any date night into memories when you learn new hobbies together. If you really want to take it to the next level, try crafting something together that you can hand down to your children.
When most people think of a road trip, they think about heading out west for a week. While those trips are fun, not everyone has a week to take off from work. This date night idea is all about exploring what’s around you! Try making a trip to a nearby city that’s within 3 hours. To save on cash, try staying in an Airbnb and exploring the city. You can plan on staying for just the night or the entire weekend this Valentine’s Day.
Want to get moving for your date night, but don’t feel like exploring the wilderness? That’s okay! Trying biking around the city just before sunset. Top it off with drinks at your favorite bar, and this is guaranteed to be one of your best date night ideas ever!
This may be one of the more “controversial” date night ideas, but we think it can be pretty fun. Escape rooms lock you in a room for around an hour with your significant other. If you and your partner love puzzles, then this is a must for you! Bring you and your partner closer together by solving the mystery before time runs out!
Looking to do a bit of good in the world, but still want to spend time with your partner? Volunteer for a cause your love. You can use your date night to help out at a food bank or clean up litter around your neighborhood. If you are looking for a way to make a difference in your community then consider volunteering. Knowing you and your partner are part of the solution to a community crisis is pretty dang romantic if you ask us!
If you are looking for something truly unconventional then you must hit up the gun range! A gun range allows you to:
Going to a shooting range is unconventional, but provides a lot of opportunities to get to know your partner more.
