5 Adventurous Dates That Bring the Fun
By Brandi Goodman
Your relationship can suffer if you aren't spending time together doing something enjoyable for you both. It can start to feel too routine and mundane when you work, come home, cook and clean, and don't say much to your significant other. Try making date night a regular part of your routine -- but be sure to switch it up with various fitness or adventure options that really bring the fun.
Play at an Arcade and Amusement Center
You don't have to bring the kids along to play at an arcade and amusement center. It's fun for all ages. Play some games together and see who gets the most tickets. Try out a round of mini-golf or head to the batting cages. Jump at the trampoline park or try the ninja warrior course. Find places in your city that have these popular attractions and have a fun night trying them out together.
Try Indoor Rock Climbing
Climbing outdoors on rough terrain isn't ideal for your first time. However, plenty of indoor rock climbing gyms exist that allow you and your partner to get geared up and see how far you can climb. Even from inside a facility, it can still feel like an exciting time.
Try "The Adventure Challenge"
A book called "The Adventure Challenge" has been heavily promoted in recent years. Give it a try! Start from the beginning and make your way through the various challenges and options, or pick and choose which ones you really want to do. Making a homemade pie together while one person is blindfolded is one of the possibilities the book walks you through.
Go Ax Throwing or Try a Rage Room
Two popular activities have become popular over the years. Ax throwing facilities and rage rooms are popping up everywhere. With ax throwing, you and your significant other can each take turns throwing an ax at a target and seeing who can get closest to the bullseye. In a rage room, you get to smash whatever's available, taking out your rage by using a bat or other object to smash the items in the vicinity. It can be fun and cathartic.
Go on a Helicopter Tour
Taking a helicopter tour of the city can be a great way to connect. You get to see how small the world can really feel from high above. It can help give you a new perspective. Enjoy the moment together as a couple and let it bring you closer. A hot air balloon ride is also a great option.
Plenty of worthwhile date nights are waiting. You just have to take the plunge and make a plan to give one -- or all -- of them a try.
