As the holiday of romance, Valentine’s Day is a symbolic invitation to let love flourish. While it can be a nice gesture to sit down at a nice restaurant and buy flowers for our loved ones, sometimes the traditional “dinner and a movie” date just doesn’t cut it. If you’re tired of buying fancy meals or would rather do something more active and fun with your significant other on this special day, here are some dynamic date ideas to get you both moving.
Try a Rock-Climbing Course
Climbing is a great couples’ activity because it requires teamwork to help you reach the top and stay safe while climbing. If you’re new to rock climbing, or the weather is too rough to stay outside, look for a nearby rock climbing gym. Many gyms offer beginner group courses to show you the ropes and practice walls for a variety of skill levels.
Go for a Bike Ride
No matter where you are in the States, you’re likely within a short drive of a scenic park or bike trail. Bike-friendly trails and parks can be fun to ride through, with scenic routes and fresh air to put you both in a good mood. The best part about bike riding is you can set the speed to match your mood. Ride at a relaxing pace and enjoy each other’s presence or try racing each other if you’re feeling competitive. Just don’t forget your helmet!
Take a Swing at Mini Golf
Putt-putt golf is a fun sport for all ages and skill levels. It can keep you moving without breaking a sweat. You can keep the game light-hearted or up the steaks with a friendly bet. Some courses also allow you to bring in food and drinks, so you can make it a well-rounded date.
Learn Something New
Everyone can benefit from learning something new, and fortunately during Valentine’s Day there are plenty of group classes offered in a variety of interests. Not only will most classes keep you moving, but you can also take this opportunity to learn more about each other’s interests and communication styles. If you like being kept on your toes, try learning some new moves together at a dance class, baking new dishes in a cooking class, or throwing some punches in a kickboxing lesson.
Team Up in an Escape Room
Escape rooms have recently come into the spotlight as a popular team-building game, and for good reason – they require a ton of teamwork! While you’re locked inside a room with puzzles, you’re forced to work together with your partner to escape. The escape room is a thrilling experience, keeping you both on your feet and constantly moving to find the next puzzle, the next clue, and the next opportunity to escape.
