Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you haven’t made your plans yet, it’s not too late to put your thinking cap on and come up with an idea that will make the day extra memorable and sweep your sweetheart off their feet. Tackling new challenges and experiences as a couple can bring you closer together, get you out of a relationship rut, and make new memories with your partner. What could be better?
For inspiration, here are four adventure date ideas you can try this Valentine’s Day.
1. Go Ziplining
If you’re tired of dinner and a movie, why not shake things up and get outside your comfort zone? Ziplining with your partner is an unforgettable experience that will have you swooping over the forest canopy at up to 40 miles per hour.
In one study, scientists paired different people and asked some of them to participate in 15 minutes of physical activity to increase their adrenaline levels. The couples who had exercised for 15 minutes felt significantly more attracted to each other after getting their hearts pumping. At Adventureworks, we believe nothing is more exhilarating than taking a plunge into the unknown. You and your partner can feel the rush and rekindle a romantic spark.
2. Try an Escape Room
The best adventurous date ideas can help bring you closer together as a couple. An escape room is a perfect challenge to add spice and fun to this Valentine’s Day. Successfully solving all the puzzles and finding the codes you need to unlock the door and get out involves close communication. You and your partner will need to be completely present with each other and work as a team. You may even see each other in a new light after your thrilling escape room date.
3. Do a Scavenger Hunt
When couples try something new together, it heightens their senses, gets their creativity flowing in a new way, and gives them a renewed appreciation for each other. A thrilling scavenger hunt also provides couples with shared experiences, conversation material, and a common identity. Scavenger hunts are a high-energy adventure date idea that makes participants think fast on their feet while having the time of their lives and creating lasting memories.
4. Take a Class
Learning something new together releases dopamine, strengthens your commitment to each other, and allows you to expand your horizons. Courses you can take this Valentine’s Day include cooking, dancing, photography, pottery, gardening, and painting.
