Unique First Date Ideas You Have to Try


Lucky you! You got their number, and you’re ready to take the plunge and ask that special someone out on a date. While you could go for dinner and a film, there are some more creative options out there when it comes to a first date.

If you want to have a memorable time and light that spark, we suggest you try out one of these unique first date ideas!

Find Romance in Nature

Consider going stargazing out from the city lights or finding a beautiful place to watch the sunrise or sunset. Bring a comfy blanket and a picnic basket, and enjoy each other’s company along with the stunning view. 

Take a more active approach. Consider going on a walk, run, or hike on a beautiful nature trail or preserve. A botanical garden is also a great place to walk around and enjoy the beauty of nature.

You may want to go to the beach together if you have one nearby. A drive-in movie theatre is a great outdoor alternative if you’re still interested in seeing a film.

If you’re going to be outside or exercising for long, it would certainly be prudent to have a powerful deodorant on hand.

Use Your Intellect

Take your date to trivia night at the bar or to an escape room, so you can break the ice by working together to solve a mystery or win a game! You’ll get to show off your intelligence but also practice teamwork- an essential skill for any relationship.

For something a bit more sophisticated, you might enjoy going to a local bookstore or poetry reading at a bar or coffee shop. Museums, art galleries, zoos, planetariums, aquariums, and other places where knowledge is on display can give you plenty to talk about.

Be Creative

Try out some exciting date activities, like going bowling, rock climbing, mini-golfing, laser tag, trampoline rooms, roller skating, or ice skating. For something more relaxed, play some board games or video games at home or in an arcade, or consider going to a carnival.

If you’re brave, you might take your date out to a karaoke bar. A pottery or painting class can be a great way to show off your artistic spirit while having loads of fun together, and you’ll get to create something together.

Have an Adventure Together

Whether you try something small, like cooking a meal together or going on a bike ride, or something big like going on a mini-vacation by train to a new place, or going horseback riding or dancing, there’s always room for romance whenever you’re trying new things.

You might like to visit a farm to pick berries or go to a thrift store and choosing silly outfits to wear to dinner. Volunteering together at an animal shelter can be a great way to benefit your community while doing something new.

Freshen Up for Your First Date

Best of luck on your first date with that special someone! Wherever you go, make sure you have fresh breath and take care of yourself, so your date can have a pleasant experience being with you.
