One user said, “There was a horse retirement farm not too far away. We each had a 5 lb bag of carrots, walked the pens on a cool sunny day, and shared some love with some appreciative equines.”

4. Renaissance Faire

“I had a first date at the Renaissance Faire. Turns out it’s a great place for that. You can walk and talk; if there is a lull in the conversation, there are a myriad of things to look at and shows to watch. So much food. And if the date isn’t going well, you can find a reason to leave. (Mine went very well.)” one user commented.

5. Choose Your Adventure

Someone shared, “My wife and I went on coin-toss dates. We’d go on a drive and flip a coin anytime we had to stop. Based on the coin toss, we’d drive in a random direction. Sometimes it led us to a dead end, but sometimes we discovered a path to an adventure!”

7. Cat Cafe

12. Have a Picnic

One user offered, “My wife and I have dates that consist of picking a new area in our state to visit and have a picnic in or around it.

We’ve been doing it for years. Yeah, it’s nothing crazy, but there’s something peaceful about a nice picnic no matter where we have it.”

13. Book Store Scavenger Hunt

“My favorite date was a bookstore scavenger hunt. I made a list of prompts. Stuff like “Find a book you loved as a kid,” “Find a book you’ve always wanted to read,” “Find a book you’d never want to read,” “Find a book that’s a guilty pleasure” etc., and we walked around a Barnes & Noble for like three hours talking. We’re married now, and it’s awesome,” someone shared.

14. Drive-In Movie

One person responded, “We went to a trampoline park and ended up joining a trampoline dodgeball group that got together once a month to play. We didn’t stay together, but we stayed good friends and kept playing dodgeball together. We both agree that was one of the best dates either of us had been on as not only was it a blast, but it was pretty damn different from any other dates we had been on.”

16. Ghost Tour
