Hi Ladies! I've been newly dating since summer and I feel like every date is always the same...dinner and drinks downtown. While this is fun, I find myself wanting to do something new and different. So here are 5 different date ideas!
1. Catch a movie at bruin theater
Ok so this first one isn't different but this theater is amazing! They have recently renovated and the new space is so nice! They have large leather recliners and serve beer and wine! I hate going to the movies because I get so uncomfortable in those seats.... not here!
2. Picnic at Union Point Park
I love Union Point Park. It is such a nice park with beautiful water views. Pack a blanket and a picnic and spend the evening watching the sunset snuggled up with your date.with your date. There are even grills if you'd rather have hot food.
There are also many events that go on throughout the year at this park, including live music and outdoor movies.
3. pottery at The Accidental Artist
Get artistic with your date at The Accidental Artist. Here you pick out a piece of pottery to paint, choose your glaze, and create your very own masterpiece. They will fire it for you and you can pick it up in a few days. You can even bring your own beer, wine, and snacks.
4. New Bern Historic Trolley Tour
I took my mom on this trolley ride last year and it was a blast. It would be perfect for a date! You board the trolley and take a ride around historic downtown New Bern. The driver has so many interesting stories to share about the people, buildings, and houses along the way. Our beautiful city has so much history and what better way to spend the afternoon!
5. Take a walk at the Civil War battlefield park
I actually discovered this little known trail on one of my best first dates. This park is located at the entrance of Taberina in James City. It a very easy and walkable trail with trail markers that give some history on the battle fought at the site. This is a great place to hold hands and take a little stroll through the woods.
Ladies, feel free to share this list with the men in your lives and spice up your date nights!
Do you ladies have any other different date ideas? Please share them with us?
