Walking around the city at night and learning all about the spooky story is not only super interesting, but it can chill your back. It’s even more fun when you have someone to hold on to when you’re a little more scared than you’re proud to admit.
Just going out at night can give you goosebumps, but trust that you’ll feel good in the rain as long as you have your love with you.
zero gravity yoga
Okay, when you hear the word “yoga” you probably don’t exactly think “exhilarating”, but soaring through the air in weightless yoga is definitely an experience out of this world.

In fact, you’ll be able to run around shooting people with a bow and arrow. Obviously, these aren’t real bows and arrows (no killing allowed), but they’ll definitely make you feel electrified.
Go to a shooting range
You know what it’s like to shoot a gun? Chances are you won’t. But you could! If you’re bored with your usual date ideas, then try a shooting range…because why not?
A range officer can guide you and your partner through the stages under direct supervision, while ensuring everyone’s safety. You are definitely going to feel more inspired than you currently feel. And then, you can say that you know how to handle a firearm!
