Isn’t it a beautiful thing? And it’s not just expressed on Valentine’s Day, right?
Whether you’ve just met someone, been courting for a while or a married couple, I’d say you’ll be on a date soon.
A date is a great chance to connect (or reconnect) and cultivate those warm and fuzzy, lovey-dovey feelings we all long for.
Dates typically involve trying to wow your boo at a romantic restaurant or doing the same ole things.
But if you want to go beyond the norm and try something different, here are 5 date night ideas in Arlington that will get your honey’s attention.
Climb & Cuddle
Spend an fun evening scaling walls at Dyno-Rock. The rock climbing gym is open until 10 p.m. and for $40 you and your honey can climb til your heart’s content. How about the first person up the wall gets a massage? Hmmmm…

Hotel Room Romance
Have a getaway without really getting away through the Romance Package at Crowne Plaza Arlington Suites. Enjoy a night away with chocolate covered strawberries, chilled champagne, breakfast buffet with made to order items and a late checkout (1 p.m.). Sounds like a winner especially for couples that wanna escape the kids and reconnect.

Sip in Front of the Silver Screen
Ok, movies is a common go-to for date nights. But Studio Movie Grill pours tasty liquors which may lead to smooching midmovie. Just be sure it’s a film you didn’t actually want to watch.
Tickle Each Other’s Funny Bone
Women like dating men who can make them laugh and are predisposed to find them attractive, according to a study conducted by researchers from Stanford University School of Medicine. So bring on the chuckles at the Arlington Improv. The Arlington Improv hosts nationally known stand-up comedians and open mic nights. What a great way to ensure your date has a great sense of humor.

Create a Memorable Masterpiece
Dates over dinner can be a bit blah. Throw a curveball and take a painting class at Painting With a Twist. See who can create a masterpiece on canvas while enjoying your favorite drink because it is BYOB. Gotta love that.
