Dinner and a movie can be a nice date …..but every now and then it’s fun to think outside the box by trying something new together.
I’ve created a list of some of my favorite extreme and unique date ideas.
These could be fun first date adventure ideas or great adventure challenge date ideas to encourage you to get outside of your comfort zone.
1. Try a “new to you” restaurant
Go to a restaurant that you both have never been to before.
I like to do a little research by checking with a few friends who are bloggers and also from websites.
Step out of your comfort zone and try a cuisine that you normally wouldn’t eat.
2. Take a Tour
I love taking tours. I think they can be such a great date.
There are so many out there that you can find one for almost any interest level.
There are history tours, sports tours, sightseeing tours, art tours, food tours, beer tours, etc.
You don’t have to go far. I’ve taken so many tours that I even created a specific category on the blog main page specifically for them.
Ride Segways because once you ride one, you won’t care how nerdy you look.
3. Go to a Museum- Art, History, Sports or a random oddity.
Explore a museum that you don’t know very much about.
4. Go Snowshoeing, Skiing, or Snowboarding
Try a new winter sport together and spend the day on a winter sport that you both enjoy.
5. Go to a Shooting Range
Mix things up with Target practice at a local shooting range.
6. Go Geocaching
7. Play a Round of Frisbee golf
Enjoy the outdoors and get some exercise with a game of frisbee golf.
8. Snow Tubing at a local sledding hill or resort
All the fun of sledding without the work.
9. Go Zipling
(I have a whole category on the homepage dedicated to places to zipline)
10. Take a Dance lesson
11. Explore a Cave
12. Try extreme tree climbing with a harness
Climb as high as you want without the fear/risk of falling under the guidance of pros.
13. Try stand up paddleboarding
Test your balancing skills on a SUP board.
14. Go Kayaking, Canoeing or White Water Rafting
Spend some time on the water as fast or as slow as you want to.
15. Watch a sporting event
16. Try a new outdoor activity like Footgolf
A combination of soccer and golf.
17. Go to the Drive-in
Mix up movie night by going to the Drive-in instead.
18. Visit an Amusement Park
Face your fears on a thrill ride or enjoy the nostalgia of a classic.
19. Try the trapeze
Take your date to the extreme by taking a trapeze lesson.
20. Set up an animal encounter at a zoo, rescue or aquarium
Get up close to your favorite animal with an ethical animal encounter.

Rent e-bikes for an even more fun ride.

sky diving, indoors diving(I FLY) , horseback riding, Six Flags, Comedy show, . Great list thank you
SUCH A GOOD LIST! It’s easy to choose the ‘obvious’ date night options but these adventurous ones are much more memorable. We love going fishing and kayaking – with and without our baby. Haven’t been in whitewater yet tho like your pic! Thanks for sharing the inspo <3
These are great ideas! My boyfriend and I recently went to Hocking Hills for zip lining. We had a lot of fun, but we did the “easiest” ones (first timers) but next time we will definitely be doing the extreme version. Extreme tree climbing sounds like something we should try too!
These ideas are great! Can’t wait to try some of them out!!
