Take a day trip to the beach for a relaxing but fun idea for your first date. Go on a walk, play in the water, and pack a lunch for a romantic picnic. It’s a perfect setting for all those “getting to know each other” questions. Plus, if you don’t want to spend a fortune, especially if you don’t know if you’re going to hit it off, a trip to the beach is ideal.

It may sound cheesy, but a game of mini golf is a great way to break the ice if your nerves are getting the best of you. After a round of golf, hit the arcade or ride go-carts to check each other’s fun meter.

If your town offers up any street festivals such as a Food and Wine Festival or Jazz Festival, take full advantage. An outdoor setting can be less stressful and more relaxing when getting to know someone for the first time. Take a stroll and check out the vendors.

Take your first date to the bowling alley for a great first-date experience. If you’re the super competitive type, remember it’s meant to be fun, not a competition! Embrace your playful side.

Much better than the pub. Although a few alcoholic drinks might loosen you up, it’s a good way to keep a quality conversation.
