Trade two legs for two wheels. When the weather is perfectly warm, take a bike ride outside the city, near the beach or one of our beautiful parks. Add some extra spice and fun by hiring a tandem bike, now this is rocking out the retro seventies! You can also pack a picnic basket and eat al fresco, coupled with a bottle of wine!

Do you have a game? You can bring out each other’s enjoyable, competitive side by going to an arcade, boardwalk or fair and have your very own gaming Olympics! The winner will then bring home a prize bought with your combined tickets. Being playful is considered one of the most attractive qualities and is the perfect environment to ignite chemistry!

Explore your own city. Pick a landmark in or outside of your city that both of you have never been to and then spend the afternoon exploring every corner. Afterwards, you can head to the gift shop and buy something to remember the fun day you had.

It’s a dog’s world. If you’re both into dogs, take your pets to the park or if you don’t have animals volunteer at a dog shelter.  Thanks to the friendly energy your dogs will bring, you and your date can relax and just spend a carefree afternoon together.
