Tired of the hearing or saying the same ole line- “Hey lets meet at…or Let’s grab a drink at…” insert bar or restaurant name when it comes to going out on a date? Don’t worry you’re not alone! Are you finding yourself looking for something fun to do on a date or even just something different to do with your friends but having a hard time? I know it can be difficult to come up with a unique date ideas on the spot, I struggle with it too, so I decided to come up with a short list of date ideas (today I will give you 3, I have many more and will post again soon.) These are dates that I’m even going to be checking off my to-do-list. Read the date description below, and I’m sure something will catch your eye.
1.) Head over to Fort McHenry for a tour and then a picnic out by the water. The tour is actually very interesting. You learn a lot about Baltimore and how involved our city was in helping gain our Independence. It’s pretty cool. You and your date will have a lot to talk about as you walk through the fort and then the picnic to end the date will be awesome. Grab a blanket, maybe a card game, and something yummy to eat, and I guaranteed your date will be impressed.
AVERAGE COST OF THIS DATE: Fort McHenry Tour: $20 ($10 per ticket) Picnic ~ Whatever you buy/make will determine that cost.
Be a Tourist
2.) Make a day of hanging out in Mt. Vernon. My next date is going to be just this: Start a Spirits for champagne or a bottle of wine & some chit-chat. Spirits has a cozy sofa perfect for that. The staff is very helpful and can steer you in the right direction if your looking to pick something special! After getting a little bubbly in your system, then I suggest walking to The Walters Museum. It’s one of my favorites in the city. You will have a lot to talk and laugh about if you keep it light and fun while looking at all the artwork. Once you’re over touring the museum (you’ll know when your over it), head over to Dooby’s for lunch. If it’s nice out, grab your lunch and walk back to the park “the square” under The Washington Monument to eat outside. Don’t get to full because then your going to work that lunch off by walking to the top of the Washington Monument! It will be worth it. The view is beautiful. You may even get a kiss at the top if your lucky! If not a kiss, at least you will be able to snap a few great pics of the city. FYI check out the Mount Vernon Place website because they have tons of events that would make perfect date nights! After you have come back to solid ground, if you guys aren’t ready for the day to end you can always walk over to the The George Peabody Library . Click the link and you’ll see exactly why I say to go visit the library. It’s breathtaking. Hours are interesting for the library, so definitely check the website for hours of operation. You may have to switch and go to the library first and the museum last depending on what day your date will be.
AVERAGE COST FOR THIS DATE: Spirits ~ Depends on what bottle you choose. The Walters Museum ~ Donation Based (please make a donation) The Washington Museum ~ $12 ($6 per ticket) Dooby’s ~ Lunch for 2ppl ~ $30 Peabody Library ~ I believe Donations (If so, please donate)
3.) This next date in my opinion should be done early on a Sunday morning… #easylikesundaymorning Grab breakfast at Dovecote Café You will enjoy food, atmosphere, and beautiful artwork displayed on the walls. You can either take the short walk over to The Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanical Gardens or drive. The building is gorgeous and the plants are equally as gorg! Play around, talk about the plants and take tons of pics! When you go early, you’ll probably have the place to yourself which makes it even better. After your fun roaming around the conservatory, you can head over to the zoo (short walk) and kick it with the animals.
AVERAGE COST FOR THIS DATE for 2ppl: Dovecote ~ $25 (coffee and breakfast) Peters Rawlings Conservatory ~ Donation (please donate) Maryland Zoo ~ $40 (plan for extra if you plan to purchase anything inside the zoo)
I hope this helps you with your upcoming date!
Until next time…
