Out of the Ordinary
The Museum of Science may sound a bit geeky or childish, but don’t knock it ‘til you try it! The museum is certainly a spot that ranks for truly unique dates. What’s more exciting than gazing at the stars, in the open air atop the museums roof during their free Friday night observation hours? In inclement weather, indoor stargazing is available at the museum’s planetarium or you can check out one of their laser shows set to rock music.
Baseball buffs can take a tour of the historic Fenway Park. The 50-minute walking tour around this iconic baseball park, led by an official Fenway Park Tour Guide, costs approximately $12 per person. With plenty of restaurants and bars in the immediate area, Fenway Park is the perfect date night for baseball fans. Just remember that it’s hard to pahk the cah, so you might wanna take the T.
When the New England weather turns colder, why not head go ice skating on Frog Pond? Located in Boston Common, skating on Frog Pond is just $5 per person (not including skate rentals). Once you feel the nip at your nose and the numbness in your toes, you can head over to Sweet (just a short walk away on School St.), warm yourself with hot cup of Lavazza coffee. You and your date may also want to indulge in a treat or two while you’re there. Sweet offers many traditional, allergen free and vegan options to choose from.
Fun and Unique Dates
Planning fun and unique dates isn’t that difficult, especially in a city like Boston! Break the boring, average ‘dinner and a movie’ dating cycle and surprise your date with something out-of-the-box! In addition to this list, scour sites like Groupon and Living Social and make a ‘dating bucket list’ of your own. Try to stay away from things like pub crawls or hot yoga— at least until you know your date and whether they want to get drunk and stupid, or hot and sweaty.
