Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and that means it’s time to start planning your accessible date night. A few things to keep in mind while you are making plans: take into consideration what you enjoy doing and what your date enjoys doing. Proper planning and punctuality are key for a successful date. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
Visit an Exhibit
One great date night or day idea is visiting an exhibit, museum or even an aquarium. Typically, these places have large areas to check out and the displays can often make great conversation starters. A great idea is to look at floor plans and maps so you can even have a general route in mind before your date. Check out where you can grab a bite to eat or coffee nearby too if things continue to go well! To ensure accessibility of the location, check the website or call ahead.
Not only is laughing fun but it also burns calories, which is why going to a comedy club is a great idea for a date! This is a great place to break the ice if you just started seeing each other. Being able to laugh makes you both feel more comfortable and you’ll have something to talk about throughout the night too!
If you are more comfortable with or have known your date for some time, making dinner might be another appropriate idea. It can be so fun and rewarding to work together as a team to create something delicious you can both enjoy. Search for some recipes beforehand and decide on a full course menu that you both love.
Explore a Botanical Garden
Take your date to a botanical garden and explore all the gorgeous exhibits. This type of date is especially helpful if you are trying to maintain social distancing. You can wander the grounds of a beautiful garden and take lots of Instagram-worthy pictures that you can both keep for some amazing memories. Often, there are some great gift shops to explore as well on the grounds.
Answer Some Tough Questions
Are you in the mood for some friendly competition? Trivia nights can be really fun and educational. Go out for some food, drinks, and work together to answer as many questions as you can. This can be the perfect date night idea as you can be entertained by the questions, and impress your date with your level of knowledge!
If you are the creative type, sometimes painting or drawing with your significant other can be a fun date night. In many cities, some shops offer guided paint nights for you to enjoy. Typically, you pay per person and all the materials are included. This can be a fun way to show off your creative flair, and you’ll have a keepsake for years to come.
A Night Out on The Town
Sometimes a night out is just what you need for the perfect date. The casino might be a good choice if you both enjoy nightlife and entertainment. Usually there are some great places to eat and at times there might even be some live music to enjoy together.
No matter what you do on your date, you are sure to have a good time with some great company. Feel free to share some of your favorite ideas with us, we’d love to hear them!
