Valentine's Day Dates: Out on the Town

Are you still trying to come up with a great date night for V-Day?
If you're fresh out of original ideas, try one (or a few) of these for a super fun night full of romance and new experiences.

Movie theater double feature 
Because you can’t just see one, right? There are lots of really great movies out right now, so why not do a double feature? Get the extra large popcorn with free refills, and veg for a few hours with your sweetie. Sometimes life is a little too fast paced, so this is a great way to unwind and spend time with your partner.

Take a pottery class 
I’ve always wanted to learn to throw pottery, but it’s hard to just work learning it into an already packed routine. Valentine’s day is the perfect excuse to try something new and fun t(hat you may not normally do), plus it’s always a blast to get a little messy on dates! This is something that I think everyone would enjoy doing at least once.

Beginner’s couples’ yoga
Yoga (or any new exercise) is scary to just try to pick up for the first time, especially in a class setting. Make it fun and let loose by going together and laughing through your first lesson. It’s a great way to grow closer to your partner, and have fun while doing it.

An appetizer crawl at your favorite fancy spots 
If you don’t want to drop $100 on dinner for the night, try skipping around town and sharing a few appetizers! This is the perfect way to try a few new restaurants, but not leave the night with an empty wallet. And don't forget to end the night with a warm dessert to share! (I have to admit, this is probably my fave on this list. I love trying out all of our local restaurants, and sharing apps is a great way to do it on the cheap!)

Spend the evening planning your dream home
Dream big! It’s so much fun. 4 car garage, an indoor pool, an in-home yoga studio, or maybe all 3? 

Go on your first date again
Whether it was a fancy dinner or a walk in the park, relive the first date together and talk about how far you’ve come in your relationship. It’s refreshing to out yourself back at the beginning and remind yourselves why you fell in love.

AirBnb it for a night 
My husband and I have has some really fun experiences with AirBnb, and it's easy to find spots that are cheaper than hotels, which is a major plus! Whether you stay in your hometown or go away for the night, this is such a fun idea when you just need a change of scenery, but still want to enjoy a night in. Cook a fancy dinner at your home away from home, rent a movie, and sleep in the next morning. (also a great idea for parents who need more than just a couple of hours off!)

Good ol’ Dinner date, complete with chocolate and flowers.
What kind of valentine’s day date list is complete without the standard dinner date? you really can’t go wrong with this one. This is the perfect opportunity to spend uninterrupted time with you partner, share a few appetizers and fancy entrĂ©es, talk about your day, and share some of your goals for the next year together.
