Your Dates Are Getting Boring…Here’s How to Fix Them

Are you and your significant other getting bored of going to the same places on a date? After awhile, going to the same restaurants, bars or even to the movies can get monotonous. If you are looking to break up your date night routine, we’ve got you covered. Here are fun and creative date ideas in Austin. Whether you are looking for a foodie experience, art, music or something a bit more adventurous, the date night of your dreams is waiting for you in Austin.

Get Artsy!

If you are looking to enjoy some art with your date, The Canopy, the perfect date idea. The first Saturday of the month, the center hosts what is known as Open Canopy. The event gets its name because all of the galleries and artist studios are open to the public on that day. There are typically special events and art workshops that take place on that day. That means not only can you look at art, but you may also be able to create your own on the date.

For artistic dates, we also recommend: The Comtemporary Austin, and Pinot’s Palette for wine and painting.

The Canopy – 916 Springdale Rd, Austin, TX 78702

Enjoy Date Night Without Breaking the Bank

If money is tight, you may be thinking about skipping date night. But instead, there are two old school options that are both affordable and fun. Peter Pan Mini Golf and Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In make for great Austin dates. They are fun and nostalgic experiences that are also affordable. And best of all, both locations allow you to bring in your own food and drink, making these dates even more affordable. Catch a movie or play a round of golf the next time you are looking for something fun to do that doesn’t break the bank.

Dance to the Music

There are so many unique and interesting live music spots in Austin that it can be difficult to pick just one.
