10 Great First Date Locations30-01-2011
Finally, you found someone you really like. Your romantic feelings have been resurrected, and you've got butterflies just thinking about that first date. But where to go?
Try one of these unique locales to make this date an unforgettabl e experience.
1. Botanical Garden
A botanical garden is the perfect environment to cultivate a beautiful relationship. It's the perfect place to take someone you don't know that well, with great potential to spark conversation and romance.
2. Sunset Cruise
If you live near water, treat someone special to a short river, ocean or bay cruise. Water soothes the spirit, makes conversation easy, and provides a beautiful backdrop to rev up romance.
3. Park Picnic
Sharing food is always a great way to spend a date -- especially when you have the extra-added pleasure of a beautiful park surrounding you. Prepare a picnic basket and spread out a blanket on a soft spot in the grass.
4. Wine Tasting
Impress your date with a tasting at a local winery -- or find a restaurant that schedules wine tastings. Depending on how well you get along, you might suggest dinner after the tasting.
*Make sure your date isn't a teetotaler, first!
5. A 'Buena Vista'
Where do you go to unwind? Do you have a favorite overlook, seaside retreat or mountaintop vista? A great way to measure compatibility is to take someone to see your favorite "beautiful view." Drive there and see what happens.
6. Drive-In Movie
The great thing about a drive-in movie is that you have free reign of the vehicle -- meaning you can laugh, eat popcorn and discuss the movie freely. See a comedy together. Laughter helps create sparks.
7. Comedy Club
Laughter is sexy. It's also a great way to break the ice between two people getting to know each other. Take your date to see a comedian and laugh the night away! (Caution: For first dates, stick with a nonoffensive act.)
8. Horse Stables
If you're both physically fit and like animals, make arrangements to go horseback riding at a beautiful location. If you can trot on a beach, even better. You'll have plenty to talk about after your ride.
Can you think of a better way to get to know someone than gazing at the stars together? Check out your local planetarium for programs, and take your date for a day of "exploration of the cosmos."
If you love your home, invite your date over for coffee or cocktails. Show him or her around your home. Keep photo albums or conversation pieces on hand. Take a stroll in your neighborhood. It's a great place to share yourself.
