4 Fun Date Night Ideas


As our lives are busier than ever now, it’s crucial to carve out time to be together as a couple. I love spending time together as a family, of course, but it’s so important to have moments that remind you what it was like when it was just the two of you. Since romance has to be a little more intentional (there are more logistics with a baby, for sure!) it doesn’t have to be boring. Here are a few fun Boston date ideas…

Cooking class!

I love the idea of making something together — and Matt and I enjoy being in the kitchen. Plus, we seriously love to eat. We are taking a cooking class at Artepicure this spring and can’t wait. Now the fun part: to decide what cuisine we want to learn more about. We’re choosing between southern and Italian cooking! Someday I’d love to check out Stir (although so pricey), and Matt has enjoyed classes at the Boston Center for Adult Education in the past.

Build something.

It’s fun to do something outside your comfort zone. Maybe you take turns finding a new activity or class to try out? I love the idea of taking a glass blowing class, an art class, or even an upholstery class where you can fine tune your ability to spruce up items around your house.

A trip down memory lane.

Having a baby has made me more sentimental — is that even possible?! Matt and I met at Whiskey’s, way back in 2006. I’d love to take him for a beer and a plate of wings. Followed by a little bar crawl down Boylston Street perhaps or up to the Top of the Hub for a cocktail, which is where we celebrated my 22nd birthday together.

Feel the rhythm.

Milo loves music, so we spend a lot of time singing and listening to music. It’s nice to hear something different than The Wheels on the Bus every now and again. There are so many great places to enjoy live music in Boston. A few of our favorites: The Beehive, concerts at Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory, Club Passim, The Sinclair and Scullers Jazz Club. I’ve never been to Wally’s Cafe — that’s next on my list!

I’m curious, how do you carve out time for dating? What are your favorite ways to spend time with your significant other?
