Are you in need of some creative date ideas? Whether you're going on a first date or have been together for years, it's nice to step out of the dinner and a movie comfort zone.

But it can be hard to figure out what other date options are out there. Luckily we are here to help!

Keep reading for our list of the top 7 creative dates.

Rock Climbing

If you're looking for a more challenging and fun date idea consider going to your local rock climbing gym. This is the perfect way to have some healthy competition and challenge yourself both physically and mentally.

Have fun as you and your date race up the wall to see who can get to the top first.

Breakout Games

If you haven't heard yet, breakout games are all the rage. This fun and challenging experience are perfect for a one on one or a group date.

So grab your companion and head to an escape room for an experience you both won't forget.


If you're looking for a more romantic option consider grabbing a cozy blanket, a bottle of wine, and a book of constellations and heading out to do some stargazing.

This can be the perfect way to cuddle up to your date and see who can spot the constellations first. If you live in a big city and can't see stars, head to a local planetarium instead.

Go For a Hike

If you and your date both enjoy nature, consider heading to a local park and taking a hike.

This provides the perfect way to get out in the wilderness and get a chance to spend some quality time with your date.

Rent Bikes

If you want a fun way to get a look at your city or town, consider renting bikes. You can bike through the city or hit a local bike trail for a fun day full of adventure and exercise.

Visit an Art Gallery

Art galleries can be a great first date option since they tend to involve a lot of introspective gazing. But not all art galleries are staring at a picture on the wall.

There are many different types of galleries that can offer interactive and dynamic experiences that are enjoyable to everyone.

Step Outside Your Food Comfort Zone

If you enjoy a traditional dinner date, consider switching it up by stepping out of your comfort zone and picking a type of food neither of you has tried before.

This will not only be a fun and adventurous experience but you might also find a new favorite dish. And if you end up hating the food it will turn into a fun story and experience you both shared together.
