15 Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Laser Tag.

If you are looking for something fun to do on Valentine’s Day, laser tag is it. Not only do you get an adrenaline rush but you can bring out your competitive side.

Movie Night.

You can choose to go out to the theater or stay at home snuggling on the couch watching by the fire with a movie. If you can’t compromise on a movie make it a double feature that way you both can see the movie you want.

Dance Class.

Mix things up by adding a dance class to the itinerary. Whether you want to learn or try a new dance it is a great way to get close to your partner.

Cooking Class.

Or trying making a meal at home that you have never prepared. Watch a video online on how to make and work together.


If you are up for a challenge, try a paintball experience. Team up and work together to eliminate your opponents. Some locations may be offering a couples package at a discounted rate.

Game Night.

Sometimes it’s fun to pull out a game board that may be your favorite or one you haven’t played in a while. If you are not up to playing cards or a board game, try a video game session.

Bring your date bowling before or after dinner. Leave the competitiveness at home and just have fun. It is also a great ice breaker especially if it’s your first Valentine’s Day together.

Take in a piece of history by visiting your local museum. Some locations may even have events going on that day such as a special tour, concert, or even hors d’ oeuvres.

Ice Skating.

Take your sweetheart to the ice rink for some fun while holding hands. After you are finished warm up with some hot chocolate or a cup of coffee.

You don’t have to be an expert at painting. Create a master piece with your loved one in a step-by-step painting class. You will be amazed at the results. At the end swap each others painting to keep as a gift.

Home Improvement.

If you can work together a home improvement project can be fun. Not only will you mark something off you list but be able to get

Dinner for 2.
