A Day Trip
Who doesn’t love an adventurous day trip in the forests of the Rocky Mountains? If you have a car or a van, and know the person already but are looking to get to know them more romantically, this is a good idea. Take them on a day trip or, even better, plan a camping trip for the both of you, if they agree. It can be done easily in 4 easy steps such as the ones mentioned on this link: https://www.active.com/outdoors/articles/how-to-plan-a-camping-trip-4-simple-steps
Another trip to plan could also be to head out to the beach and get some alone time with them. This may not work if you don’t know them, as not everyone trusts the other person on the first date, and rightly so.
Get Outdoors and Visit a Market
Going for a walk in the park is well and good, but turn it up a notch and visit some of the many flea markets opened around different cities now. Perhaps a farmer’s market is your thing? Wandering from one stall to the next is a good way to get to know someone as you will pick up on the things they like and don’t like.
If you’re hitting the spot and getting some good vibes, you could even earn some points by buying the other person something cute or something they have their eye on. If the weather is good, a farmer’s market is an excellent way to grab some produce and have a picnic outdoors.
Grab a Family Challenge Book and Camera
We saved the best for last – a Family Challenge Book. This is one of the best ways to put all of the above ideas into one and give you almost 50 different ideas on things to do, and the best part is, each one is a surprise.
The family challenge book, is filled with great ideas for couples or those trying to impress their date, and if you are all out of ideas, this book has a space for individual ideas that you can scratch out and be surprised, and the best part is, you have to do them, and cannot back out. Don’t worry they’re all safe, and fun.
You have a choice of getting one with a camera, or on its own, if you already have one that takes Polaroid images. So, each time you scratch the idea and do it, you take a picture and stick it on top of the idea. Thus, building amazing memories and experiences for your kids, or family or friends.
What’s great about this is you can choose one for the entire family, just for you, or for friends, and each one has a bunch of unique and do-able things that will keep you busy for hours and get to know everyone while you are doing the deeds.
