Free romantic date Ideas

40 Free Date Ideas You'll Both Love

Many cities have local art shows or photography exhibitions that are free to visit. Some even offer complimentary wine and cheese. Look in your local newspaper or city's website for listings near you. The cultural benefits are a nice bonus!

Amateur Night at a Bar

So-called amateur or open-mic nights tend to showcase local talent in either music or comedy performances, depending on the venue. Before you go, do your research to make sure it's something that would actually interest you and your date.

Free Outdoor Concerts

This is an ideal summertime date. There are hundreds of free outdoor concerts during the warmer months, and you can even turn it into a fun dinner by bringing a picnic!

Tour a Local Brewery

Most brewery tours are free and—best of all—include free samples at the end. So get your beer buzz on and learn about brewing from those who do it best!

Have a Game Night

Everyone has a favorite childhood (or adulthood) game, whether it's Monopoly, Clue, or Catch Phrase, so settle in for the night and enjoy a little friendly competition. Or you might try one of the new, more complex games that are sweeping the country like "Settlers of Canaan."

Go Stargazing

Urbanites, toss a blanket and bottle of wine in the car and then drive until you find a scenic location far from the city lights. If you want to make an entire night of it, bring a picnic and dine by the sunset. What's more romantic than that?

Have a Movie Night

Instead of spending tons of money at the movie theater, stay home and watch one of your favorite films together. Take turns picking the movie. You'd be surprised how much you can learn about someone from their movie selection.

Not a fan of films? Watch a marathon of your favorite TV show or one that you've missed but always wanted to catch up on (Mad Men, anyone?)

Go to the Beach

Many beaches and lakes are free to visit, which makes them an ideal spot for a romantic rendezvous. You can take a long walk along the shore, have a stone-skipping contest, or simply gaze at the waves while you get to know each other better.

Go on a Bike Ride

Take a Hike

Head for the hills! Pack lots of water and your favorite healthy snacks and dress in layers so you're prepared for sudden weather changes. This is a great way to enjoy nature and each other's company.

Be a Good Sport

Get sweaty! Whether it's playing catch with a Frisbee, kicking the hacky sack, or shooting some hoops, you're sure to have some fun. If you have a whole day, you can play a lot of different sports and take breaks for snacks in between.

Give Back to Your Community

If you share a passion for animals, volunteer at a local pet shelter. If you're more interested in hefting a hammer, look into Habitat for Humanity. There are volunteer opportunities for all passions, so just find the one that best suits you both and have fun!

Host a Dance Party

We all know dancing is fun and good exercise. But who wants to deal with the crowds or expensive drinks at the clubs? Turn your own home into a club with a particular theme. You could even do this weekly with rotating themes!

Go to a Playground

Playgrounds aren't just for mommies and kids. Relive your childhoods and have contests to see who can swing the highest or who can do the monkey bars the most times in a row. Bonus: You'll torch some extra calories.

Free Zoo Days

Zoos aren't just for grade school field trips. Most zoos offer a few free days throughout the year. This is a great time to take advantage of the awesome exhibits without having to pay for entrance.

Attend a Farmers Market

Many cities now host farmers markets on the weekends. The food on offer is usually healthier and fresher than store-bought versions, and it's always interesting to check out the work of local artisans!

Go for a Test Drive

Have fun going for a spin in your dream car or any car that looks like fun. Just beware: You may have to pretend you're looking to buy, so you'll want to prepare a cover story.

Go Sledding

If you're in an area with lots of snow, hit the hills on a downward slope. You could even turn it into a contest to see who comes up with the most successful makeshift sled!

Photoshoot

Everyone loves having pictures of their special someone, whether for your wallet, on your desk at work, or just for your home. Have fun with your photoshoot and come up with interesting costumes, backdrops, and angles. (We'll watch for them on Facebook.)

Enjoy a Scenic Drive

Weather-permitting, a relaxing drive does wondrous things for the soul, and offers a great opportunity for couples to catch up in a quiet, relaxed environment. Bring good tunes and snacks to round out the moment.

Amateur Night at a Coffeehouse

Many local coffeehouses have amateur nights, where people can come in and perform or read poetry and you get a great night's entertainment for the price of a cup of coffee. You never know what kind of performances you'll find, so expect the unexpected. If you're bold, you might even jump in and participate!

Check Out Local Yard Sales

One person's trash is another person's treasure. Checking out local yard or garage sales can be a fun way to bond over random things that get you excited. Make it a competition to see who snag the coolest stuff for the lowest price.

Tour a Winery

Most winery tours are completely free and even offer samples in hopes you'll purchase a few bottles. It's a great way to learn about local wines and to spend some quality time together tasting!

Watch Fireworks

Check to see when local sporting teams are going to be having a fireworks show. Take a blanket and cuddle up while you watch the sparks fly.

Cloud Watching

Lie in the grass and watch the clouds go by. Compete to see who can find the most unusual critters in the cloud formations.

Go Fly a Kite

Fly the kite that's been gathering dust in your garage or make a new one. Then head to the park on a windy day.

At-Home Wine Tasting

Turn your dining room into a vineyard's tasting room with tasty finger foods and vino from your wine rack. Comment on the tannins and oaky flavor of each glass (even if you have no idea what those words mean) and celebrate the "bottomless" nature of your at-home tasting.
