Here Comes the Sun: 10 Creative Daytime Date Ideas



Who needs date night when you can go on dates whenever you want! Here are ten fun and creative daytime date to help you avoid falling into a relationship rut.

Dating and relationships have changed a lot over the years. For instance, we probably all watched TV as children, and in most shows, the word ‘dating’ meant eating in a restaurant at night with the other person.

These days, the definition of dating is up for grabs. You may be looking for a relationship or just a bit of fun. Various forms of sexuality are far more accepted.

Also, the very nature of relationships is being questioned and rewritten, and dates do not need to take place at night.

With that in mind, here are some daytime date ideas to try at your next get-together.

1. Rock Climbing

In some cases, your hometown might restrict what you’re able to do on a date. However, if you happen to live in a town with a rock climbing wall, that might be a great place to go for a date.

After all, it’s fun and unique. Plus, if you’re good at it, you might impress your date, and if you’re not, you can always fall back on self-deprecating jokes in an attempt to make them laugh.

2. Amusement Park/Fair

An amusement park is also a great idea. It’s a classic date venue, and it’s packed with activities for you to do together.

You can ride roller coasters, buy souvenirs, and eat typical amusement park treats. They’re rarely healthy, but they’re usually delicious.

In the same vein, a fair is also a great date idea. A fair is a rural counterpart to an amusement park. There are a few differences, but not many.

Fairs have plenty of things to buy, though they’re often crafts and baked goods rather than souvenirs. The rides aren’t as good, but there are plenty of games, which you won’t find in an amusement park.

There are often farm animals to look at, and the food tends to be even more fattening, although it’s also much more delicious.

3. Planetarium

If you happen to live in a city, a planetarium is another great idea. Seeing stars in the city is a lot harder due to light pollution.

There’s a lot to light pollution, but one of the effects is that a lot of light makes stars less visible. The good news is that planetariums still exist, so it’s still very possible to take your date stargazing.

Stargazing is a very romantic activity. The lights are dim. There’s a sense of privacy, and you get a chance to reflect on the universe, and how small you are.

It’s a strangely reassuring thought, that perhaps all your mistakes don’t matter all that much, and that maybe there is a plan in the universe. Perhaps you’re gonna be alright because you were meant to be alright.

4. Escape Rooms

This one may not be what comes to mind when you think of daytime date ideas, but it can be great. It’s a way to test how well the two of you work together.

Being able to solve problems as a couple is a great mark of compatibility. Keep in mind that this isn’t all-or-nothing. Don’t break up with someone just because you can’t solve an escape room with them.

Whether you do well or not, an escape room can provide an exhilarating experience, and make a date something to remember.

For those who prefer a low-pressure type of date, or are at the point in their relationship where they want to start hanging out with other couples, escape rooms are an awesome double-date venue as well.

5. Tabletop Games

Believe it or not, being a tabletop nerd with a fondness for board games and pen and paper RPGs is not as taboo as it used to be. It’s almost become a new form of chic.

If you can find enough people who are into them, board games and tabletop games can be a load of fun. It’s amazing what happens when you get away from the electronics and just sit around a table with friends.

Plus, tabletop games, especially pen and paper games, can lead to some of the funniest moments in your life. You may steal a bottle of cursed liquor and hand out a glass to everyone at your favorite bar…only to realize that it’s a reverse aging curse, and now half the bar is too young to finish their drink.

It’s a great way to develop creativity and cooperation, all while laughing and joking.

6. Ice Cream

Ice cream is a first date classic, and it doesn’t get any less fun the hundredth time. Please don’t do this 100 times, though.

Ice cream is a delicious treat to enjoy on a summer day, and it’s a great excuse to go walking around the neighborhood. Another upside of ice cream is that despite Baskin Robbins and Dairy Queen, the industry is still home to a lot of mom-and-pop shops, so you may find a gem at your local ice cream parlor.

They may even serve homemade milkshakes, which are among the greatest inventions ever.

The Best Daytime Date Ideas Out There
