Are you looking to shake things up? We hear you.
Date nights that always consist of dinner and a movie, or even worse, binge-watching Netflix, is anything but exciting. But breaking out of a routine without blowing your budget can be somewhat tricky. Luckily, spontaneity and variety don’t have to be expensive.
We’ve rounded up seven unique date night ideas to pull you out of that dreaded relationship slump. Plus, they’re all super affordable.
Retro and utterly romantic, the drive-in is a unique date night experience that’s well under the price of a trip to the movie theatre. Some drive-ins charge by person while others charge by vehicle. If you’re attending a charge-by-vehicle experience, load the car with another couple and make it a double date!
Depending on the season, couples can enjoy a budget-friendly u-pick date on the farm. Enjoy love in the fields while harvesting peaches, strawberries, blueberries, sunflowers, apples or pumpkins! U-pick farms also usually charge depending on the weight of your produce, so pick wisely!
After you day in the fields, you can even extend your date into the evening by heading home to make a delicious seasonal dessert for two.
Many major cities are brimming with local breweries offering affordable tours. All it takes is a little research and some coupon scouring if you feel like it’s necessary. Additionally, brewery tours usually offer complimentary tastings and offer take-home souvenir pint glasses.
Laughter is the best medicine, especially for lovers who needs a little boost of serotonin. So let loose and have fun, as improv comedy shows will undoubtedly fill your night with joy.
We suggest scrolling through Groupon first instead of going directly to comedy club websites, as there are bound to be several affordable deals.
