Zipline & Adventures Course
Get a little adventure with this fun Plano date! At GoApe you go through multiple courses that require you to balance on obstacles, zipline through the trees, and break a little sweat! If you’re looking for an exciting and light date idea, this is a must!
Eat at 21 Food Stands
Go beyond your typical food date at Legacy Food Hall where they have 21 different food stands! The best way to experience this is to split up and grab something small from each food stall so you can try a little bit of everything. Plus check out their events calendar to see what special events they have going on to make your DFW date night even more fun!
Art & Wine Walk
Once a month Downtown Plano hosts their art and wine walk! Each month has a different theme and they have a band playing. You get a wine glass and each shop gives you a pour for you to enjoy while walking around the different shops. There’s so much activity and art to see!
Take A Unique Painting Class
Keep up with the event calendar at Pipe & Palette as they host unique art classes such as painting with coffee, candle pouring, and other one-of-a-kind classes!
VR Experience at the Void
It’s crazy how far virtual reality has come! Go on a double date with this one as groups of 4 work together in places like the Marvel Universe as the Avengers or as Jedis in the Star Wars galaxy. You have a headset placed on you and are immediately placed in a different reality that feels so real! At one point our group got “separated” and while in reality they were right next to me, it felt like they were far away. You’ll have to see to understand just how incredible this is!
There’s always one person who is better at skating than the other and it’s a great opportunity to be there to catch your SO and of course lots of hand-holding! The Starcenter Community Ice Rink in Plano has public skate hours to twirl around, or fall multiple times, on the ice.
Go for a Hike at Arbor Hills
Especially in the Spring when the wildflowers are abundant, Arbor Hills makes for a great place to go for a walk and enjoy nature. There’s a little stream that runs through and plenty of hiking trails.
Whirlyball Laser Whirld
Basketball, lacrosse, and bumper cars. Whirlyball is a strange and yet exhilarating combination of all 3 and at Whirlball Laser Whirld, you can get a group date going by challenging each other to a game!
Catch an Indie Movie
Take your typical movie date night to a new level at the Angelika Film Center where you can find indie movies showing that you won’t see at your typical movie theater.
Take a Cooking Class
At Taste Buds Kitchen you can work on your cooking skills without the burden of dishes afterwards! They have all different classes featuring cuisines from around the world and even cooking with wine. They have single classes and even semester long classes. Plus it’s BYOB!
Or a French Cooking Class
Or for something a little more themed, learn how to make your own romantic French dishes at home with the once-a-month French couple’s cooking class!
Visit the Boardwalk
The Granite boardwalk is another fun dining experience where you can experience a little bit of everything! See how many restaurants you can get through before calling it quits, and enjoy a stroll around the board walk under the hanging lights.
I grew up rollerblading, so there’s nothing like visiting the old roller rinks on a date, seeing who is the better skater, and dancing to those funky 90s songs, while aimlessly rolling in a circle for fun! Check out Thunderbird Roller Rink for a few hours of active fun.
At Oak Point Park you can rent a canoe and test your skills out on the water. Nothing like being stuck in a boat, forced to coordinate your paddling to bond right?
