Be Tourists For A Day Most of us live near attractions that people travel miles to see and we've never taken time to visit them ourselves. Historical monuments, zoos and state parks are just a few of possibilities and great places to meet. These attractions offer plenty of things to talk about in case of a lull in conversation and you can even pick up a souvenier of a memorable first date.
Visit A Museum Art, Natural History, Model Trains, pick a subject and chances are there's a museum dedicated to it. If you and your date have a common interest (or both of you want to see something new), visit a museum together and enjoy exhibits. Many museums also offer special shows, presentations and lectures that can provide a unique first date experience.
Go Fly A Kite It's just as much fun as you remember it was when you were a kid and if you pick a good windy place like beach or lakefront, it can be an adventure for you and your date to share. Whether store-bought, homemade or assembled from a kit, kite flying is a great way to spend an afternoon together.
A Bit Of The Grape Wine tastings are hosted in almost every geographic area and can be a fun (and decidedly upscale) first date experience. You can find updated calendars of these events for your city (complete with cost information) at LocalWineEvents.com.
