Have Fun And Try New Things With Your Favorite Person

Not every date has to be a dinner date, here are some ideas that maybe you hadn't thought of.

Have Fun And Try New Things With Your Favorite Person
Jessica Binkley

Sometimes movie dates or dinner dates get old. Here are some of my favorite date ideas for anyone looking to get up and get outside or just to switch up traditional date nights.

1. Hiking

Exploring outside is one of my favorite things to do; the views are stunning and its good to get away from people and technology for a little and spend time with your boyfriend/girlfriend.

2. Mini Golf

Make it a fun competition with your significant other - whoever loses has to buy ice cream after.

3. Go to the Humane Society

But seriously, who doesn't want to play with dogs for a couple hours?

4. Try a new coffee shop

My boyfriend loves coffee shops and they're easy to pop in to and grab a drink or a snack and to talk real quick.

5. Explore a new city for a day

Go somewhere neither of you have been and go without a plan. Run by the visitors center and grad a map and find touristy things to do and a cute little restaurant.

6. See a movie at the drive in

When my boyfriend and I went to the drive in at the beginning of the summer, we ended up watching the stars and talking instead of watching the movie. It's nice to go to the movies without actually going to a theatre.

7. Cook a meal together

It's cheaper and way more fun than going out, and trying out new recipes is always a blast.

8. Go to a sporting event

These are especially fun if you and your boyfriend/girlfriend are cheering for different teams.

9. Walk around a grocery store or farmers market

After a nice dinner date last week, my boyfriend and I walked through Whole Foods and had a blast. Something as simple as grocery shopping can be fun with the right person.

10. Go to the zoo/aquarium

Spend the day in utter happiness surrounded by wild animals and I guarantee neither of you will be able to stop smiling.

11. Game night

Make it a double date or even spend time with your families for a competitive game night.

12. Outdoor sports

Kayaking, rock climbing or biking is always a good idea, especially if you are an active and outdoorsy couple!

13. Go to a museum

After going to lunch, try going to a museum and learning new things.

14. Do puzzles, word searches, or a crossword

15. Take a drive

My boyfriend and I took drives a couple times a week. It was nice to just get lost and have time to talk about whatever we wanted.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
