You And Your Partner Will Love These 10 Unique Date Ideas In Minneapolis
We know dating can be a daunting task for many people. A cup of coffee or a drink tend to feel a little lackluster for a date these days. What are you supposed to do with your significant other? Fortunately, Minneapolis is full of unique date-friendly options within the city. Whether you’re planning a date with your long time partner or your Tinder date, you’ll love these 10 unique date ideas in Minneapolis:
1. Take a Segway Tour!
Sure, it might seem like the dorkiest thing in the entire world,. Your partner might question you when you suggest it. Secretly everyone wants to ride a segway but is too scared to admit it. Become a tourist in your city, and show your significant other how goofy you can be!
2. Throw on your bowling shoes at Bryant-Lake Bowl.
It's a little divey, but Bryant-Lake is nothing but fun. Their food is way better than your average bowling alley. If you're not a talented bowler, you can reserve a lane ahead of time for an alley with bumpers. Bryant-Lake Bowl, 810 W Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55408.
3. In the winter, take your date ice skating at The Depot.
It's a quintessential Minnesota date. In the evening it's all lit up and makes you feel like you're in a fairytale. Once you've skated your heart out, take your significant other to one of the many great restaurants downtown Minneapolis has to offer.
4. View the Como Conservatory.
Winter or summer, this indoor conservatory is heaven for tropical plants. You'll be amazed by how vibrant everything is. Once you've stepped out of the humid conservatory, feel free to meander the Como Zoo and say hello to the rest of the animal kingdom.
5. Take a day cruise along the Mississippi River.
The Minneapolis Queen is a paddlewheeler boat and might as well be called the Love Boat. Dinner is served on the boat while you float down the Mississippi.
6. Stroll the farmer's market.
Bonus idea: buy produce and flowers from the farmer's market and spend the day cooking a delicious romantic meal with your partner. You can wow them with a unique date idea and a wonderful dinner.
7. Go ghost hunting!
Are you and your partner fascinated with the supernatural? Minneapolis is full of haunted places. You can either take a tour with Real Ghost Tours, or make the tour your own. Rumor has it that many rooms within the Minneapolis Institute of Arts are haunted, including the Connecticut Room (pictured above).
8. See a movie at Riverview Theater.
For three dollars a person at Riverview, you can see a movie that's no longer in major theaters. It's got it's own kind of charm... Plus, they put real butter on their popcorn. Riverview Theater, 3800 42nd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55406.
9. Take a vacation at Psycho Suzie's Motor Lounge.
Once you have a strong tiki drink in your hand, and are sitting out on the deck, it'll almost be like you and your partner are on a tropical island... Sort of. Psycho Suzie's Motor Lounge, 1900 Marshall Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418.
10. Go mini golfing at The Walker Art Center.
