Valentine's Day is coming up, and the last thing you want to do is be stuck doing everyday things you normally do or be trapped on the waitlist for an ordinary restaurant for majority of the night. Whether you’re getting to know one another or you’re happily married, here are some fun, unique date ideas for you and your significant other to try!
1. Go to a Chocolate Tasting
Instead of spending a huge amount of money on drugstore chocolates and stuffed animals, get your money’s worth and go to a chocolate tasting! This way, you’ll be trying something new with your significant other and tasting delicious new sweets! Most of these events offer other things such as wine and cheese tastings, and some are even BYOB. If you’re in the area and are interested in something like this, check out the Chocolate and Cheese Tasting by Antonelli’s Cheese Shop in Austin, Texas.
2. Go on a Hike
Who says hiking can’t be romantic? In today’s world, it can be nice to disconnect from our phones and just spend quality one-on-one time with our significant other. While this may seem a bit different for a Valentine's Day date, if you are both fairly new to hiking it can be a wonderful learning experience and can create some beautiful (and quite possibly hilarious) memories. If you are interested, check out hiking trails such as Hillview Trail in San Antonio, Texas, or look up other trails near you here.
3. Take a Ghost Tour
Do you and your significant other have an interest for the supernatural and all things spooky? Take a ghost tour! Not only do they provide you with a thrilling experience with tours of haunted locations and ghost stories, but it gives you and/or your significant other the perfect opportunity to stand there with open arms and be a hero (or a complete scaredy cat). If you are interested in this idea, Check out tour guides such as Alamo City Ghost Tours who are located in San Antonio, Texas.
4. Go to a Drive-In Movie
Feeling nostalgic or want to try something new compared to a regular movie night? Go to a drive-in movie theatre! Luckily for us there has been an increase in drive-in movie theaters over the years and they are well worth the hype! Normally these types of theaters only have a couple of screens, but normally their movie selection does not disappoint! If you’re interested, Check out Stars and Stripes Drive In Theatre in New Braunfels, Texas.
5. Take a Painting Class
Are you ready to show your significant other your skills and release your inner artist? Take a guided painting class! Art studios often offer guided painting classes for people who aren’t necessarily considered expert artists, but are made for you to have fun! Places like Painting with a Twist in New Braunfels, Texas, offer date night classes and Painting with a Twist just so happens to be a BYOB studio. You can sit down, unwind, paint a masterpiece, and most importantly, make beautiful memories with your significant other!
With whatever you decide to do, always remember to have fun! Valentine’s Day is meant to be a day full of love and happiness so even if you decide to just watch a movie at home or go on a fun date, remember that this is time your spending with someone you love and care about on a special day!
