  • Go to a dine-in movie theater where you can order dinner and enjoy a show together.
  • Tour a traveling art exhibit. We loved the Van Gogh Immersive Experience. It makes a great first or second date, but also it’s a good thing to experience and share with someone you’ve been with for years!
  • Go for a bike ride. Or try one of those fun things you’ll never forget and do a tandem bike date night.
