Cute Date Ideas Every Couple Should Add To Their List

Share with your friends!

Looking for some super cute date ideas? Sometimes dating can get boring when you do the same stuff over and over again. People tend to just repeat the dates and avoid any originality or spontaneity. If you’re tired of going to dinner, getting drinks, or seeing a movie, this list is for you!

Choose any of these cute date ideas to guarantee you have an amazing day:

Tourist Day

Spend the day wandering around your city as if you didn’t live there. Go see all the top locations and must-see spots and visit the highest-rated restaurants and shops. It’s a fun way to explore your city and maybe even see something new.

Visit the Beach

Going to the beach is such a relaxing way to hang out. You can suntan, swim together, and build sandcastles!

Even if you don’t go to sunbathe, walking along the beach is a great way to enjoy each other and have some fun or meaningful conversations.

Here are some fun beach date ideas you can try!

Cooking Class

Trying something new together is such a cute date idea!

Choose a cooking class that you would both enjoy, like learning how to make your own pasta or rolling your own sushi.

It is a fun environment and you get to eat all the food!

Invite your couple friends and make it a fun double date.

Bike Ride

Rent some bikes and take a trip through your city. Even if you don’t have a specific destination in mind, riding bikes can be really fun and wholesome. How long has it been since you rode a bike like you did when you were a kid? It’ll make you feel more youthful and energetic.

Game Night

If you just want to stay in for the evening have a couple’s game night! A little competition is a great ice breaker—it makes it easy to relax and smack talk each other. You can choose from board games like Monopoly and Clue or video games like Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros.

Movie Marathon

Sometimes the best date idea is to gather a bunch of snacks and sit in bed while you watch an entire marathon of movies. Even better if you watch a series that the other person has never seen before! Or turn it into binge watching a new tv show! Can you believe that there are some people who have never watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S.?

A really cute date idea is to go visit your nearby arcade to play some games together. Games are such a fantastic way to let loose and have fun with each other. You can try playing race car driving, skeet, pinball, Pac-man, etc.—the list is endless. There are a lot of adult arcades nowadays that also operate as a bar to make it even more fun.

Water Gun Fight

On a hot summer day nothing can be more fun than a water gun fight. Water balloons are just as great! A simple activity but always brings a lot of laughter and entertainment.

Nerf Gun Fight

Similar to water gun fights, nerf gun fights are incredibly fun date ideas. They can get a little more competitive than water fights, though. You could use the entire house as your obstacle course and try and hit each other as much as possible. 

Laser Tag

Team up for a fun game of laser tag. Fight off the other team together, and grab a treat after to cool down in between games.

Sidewalk Chalk

Release your inner kid and just play with some chalk out on the sidewalk. You can have drawing competitions or play games. Just enjoy the relaxing nature of putting chalk to asphalt.

Science Experiments

Science will always be cool, so why not try some kid’s science experiments! Many of them only require simple ingredients that you probably already have lying around the house. Watch some YouTube videos for guides and explanations.

Fruit Picking

One of the cutest date ideas is to go pick your own fruit together. During the fall season you can go berry picking or visit an orchard for apples while spring and summer can be peaches. You can do this date any time of the year!

Make Homemade Jam

Once you picked your own fruit from the farm, take it home and make some homemade jam together. Cooking together is always such a fun way to hang out with someone and get to know them. And the best part—you’ll get some delicious jam from it!

Paint Night

Get creative and channel your inner Picasso! Either take a painting class, follow along to a YouTube video, or just paint whatever comes to you. You can try watercolors, acrylics, or even oil pastels. This is one of our favorite cute date ideas.

Ceramics Class For A Cute Date Idea

Another fun way to get creative is by attending a ceramics class. You can either throw something on the wheel or mold the clay with your hands. You can even get a second date out of it when you return to paint it after it’s been fired.

Mini Golf

The classic mini golf date will never go out of style. It’s probably been a while since you last played putt-putt, so go play a few rounds with your date!

Rent a Paddleboat

Paddling out onto the lake or harbor on a warm sunny day is such a cute date idea—I always think about the movie What A Girl Wants and how cute Ian was whenever someone mentions renting a boat. It’s a way to be together and hold a conversation while still having something to do.

Visit The Zoo

The zoo is an underrated date idea. It’s a fantastic place to spend the day with someone because everyone always gets so excited to see the animals. You’ll be able to learn a lot about them, especially who they were as a kid.

Go Ice Skating

You can live your Hallmark movie dreams by going ice skating. It’s even cuter if one of you doesn’t know how to skate so you have to hold hands and go slow the entire time.

Picnic in the Park

Picnics are always an adorable date idea! Pack a basket full of food and snacks, bring a blanket, and find the perfect spot to set up camp. You can even put in extra effort with the meal by using real dinnerware and glasses.

This list has enough cute date ideas to last you a few months!  The best dates are ones where you have an activity to do but still have the time to talk and get to know each other. Try completing every date on here to see which one your favorite is.
