Looking for a different twist on the typical date scenario, while staying close to home? At Delray Station, we’ve come up with four creative and fun ideas for the two of you to explore next time date night rolls around.
Picnic at Lake Ida West Park
Instead of the usual dinner and a movie, make it a picnic date. Head to Publix at The Delray Marketplace for fresh seafood and an assortment of meats and cheeses to make for the perfect outing. Then, find your way to Lake Ida West Park where you’ll discover a number of picnic pavilions and picnic shelters ideal for spending waterside time together. After enjoying your meal, take to one of the many recreational opportunities available nearby, like walking and bicycle paths, or rent a canoe for a romantic flat-water paddle. Nothing says date day like a good old-fashioned picnic.
Watch a Show at Arts Garage
Arts Garage is known as one of the best places to see live music in all of South Florida, which means it makes for a great spot for date night. Here, you’ll find Grammy Award-winning musicians as well as emerging, local talent. While the venue is best known for jazz and blues, it also features traditional rock-n-roll, artful soul, eclectic world music, and the sultry twang of country. You’ll have an opportunity to take in visual artistic elements at Arts Garage, too – their Grassroots Gallery showcases artists from the Delray Beach area.
Take a Yoga Class Near Delray Station
Yoga dates are on the rise, according to Health.com. Yoga is not only good for you and your date, it offers an inexpensive intimate and sensual experience together. While yoga might not make perfect sense for a first date, yoga offers a casual atmosphere to get to know your partner better.
