7 Date Night Ideas for Newlyweds

You’re officially married and there’s no better way to keep the romance alive than a weekly scheduled date night! Quality time is essential to building a long lasting bond, but it doesn’t always have to be the typical dinner and movie. Switch up your date night routine with these fun activities and ideas that are sure to keep the spark alive in your marriage! 

Zen Together at the Spa

After a long week of working 40 hours or more, you both can use an escape to a relaxing oasis where you can unwind and reconnect with a couple’s massage. The Haven Spa in New York offers a “Get Romantic” couples massage, where you both can enjoy a Swedish or deep tissue massage in a private, romantic dual massage room. 

Have a Fly Night

If the thought of jumping out of a plane sends your heart rate through the roof, we have found a fun alternative at iFly, an indoor skydiving  experience  that simulates the sensation of gliding in mid air inside of a massive indoor wind tunnel. If you’re seeking to add a little adventure to your date night, you and your partner can experience the thrill of skydiving without actually having to jump out of a plane. iFly has several locations in major cities across the country. 

Wine Tasting

The warm weather months are upon us and outdoor activities always make for a fun-filled date, especially if it involves wine. If you’re looking to increase your wine knowledge, many local wineries offer free wine tastings and if you happen to be on the west coast, we recommend visiting the Soda Rock Winery in Sonoma, which offers private and group tastings. 

Live Music

Whether you enjoy jazz, hip-hop or neo-soul music, nothing beats listening to your favorite musical act live. If your searching for a live music venue for your next date night, The Howard Theatre, a historic theater located in the heart of Washington, D.C., is host to many local and national acts each week and they also double as a restaurant with an extensive menu making it the perfect one stop shop for a fun night out. 

Game Night Date In

You don’t always have to leave your house to have a fun night. If you’re looking to spend a cozy night in but you still want to have a fun and memorable date night, break out the board games. Take your game night to the next level with fun snacks and crafty cocktails that you can make together. Scrabble, Jenga and even Uno Cards are great options to get your game night started. 

Rooftop Movie Night

Take movie night to the next level by checking out a rooftop cinema like the Melrose Rooftop Theater in West Hollywood, California. This chic cinema with a view offers screenings of cult classics and new releases in a relaxed open air setting. Sit back relax, enjoy cocktails, delicious bite and a good movie or two.


Classroom Date

Do something different on date night! Learn to paint a masterpiece, or cook an amazing meal, or even how to use a digital camera or take an acting class. Learning something new together is a great way to connect with your spouse and create memories. If you are looking for a class in your area Coursehorse offers a range of classes to keep you busy for many date nights to come!
