Fun Double Date Ideas

You can’t go wrong with a good old fashioned dinner. This can seem a bit boring but it’s all about the place you choose and the people you are with! Pick an atmosphere that matches everyone’s tastes and a cuisine that all can enjoy.

Amusement parks are so much fun and you never run out of things to do! Most places will have 2 for 1 offers or discount days, you just have to do your research. Theme parks are great for those who seek thrills and like being active on their dates.

Going to the beach or lake provides awesome scenery. Too many of us don’t make the most of what Mother Nature has provided us with. There are so many beautiful sights to be seen and enjoyed! A quick internet search and you’ll be on your way…

Wine tasting is a fun and different thing to do! Increase your knowledge and work out what tastes you like the best. So many of us don’t realize the wide variety of wines available.

Go to a cooking class to expand your skills. This is also great for sussing out how good a cook your potential partner is! And, if this isn’t a first date, then you and your other half can figure out ways to make your home meals more interesting. Winning!

Mini golf is great for providing a little competition. It’s fairly cheap, light hearted and lots of fun! Scout around for a good course near you.

A pool tournament is a great opportunity to show off some skills. You can set bets to make it more fun! If you aren’t particularly good at the game, it’s a fun opportunity for your partner to teach you something.

Play it old school and go dancing! There’s something about music and movement that really makes a person feel alive. The great thing about this double date idea is that there are so many different styles of dancing and music genres that you are bound to find something all of you will love!

A comedy night will be sure to provide laughs, ideal for a first date as there isn’t so much pressure on yourselves to create the fun. This is also a good way of finding out what sort of things your partner finds to be amusing!

Music concerts and outdoor festivals are a blast. There is always something to suit everyone’s taste and this particular date often provides a whole day of fun! However, we suggest checking the weather forecast before you book as it’s not much fun being rained on all day! Unless you’re into that, of course.
