13 Cute Couples Crafts for a DIY Date Night

There are tons of fun date night crafts happening no matter where you live, and even some couple DIY projects you can do together at home.

Having a crafty date night is a great way to be creative and make more than memories with your partner. Whether you’re sipping and painting, turning string into masterpieces, or crafting fun DIY home decor, these couple’s crafts will help you bring out your artistic sides! These are creative date night ideas that help you get to know each other better and will leave you with cute, handmade keepsakes to look back on for years to come.

Top Date Night Craft Ideas

There are many options for incorporating arts and crafts into your relationship. Our list of cute couple crafts features a little bit of something for everyone, so you’re sure to find an activity you’ll enjoy.

1. Spin Art Nation

Spin art isn’t just an activity for kids–prepare to make a mess, a masterpiece, and memories at Spin Art Nation. This fun date night craft handles the cleanup while you create a one-of-a-kind spin art painting you can take home.

2. Painting Pottery

Pop into a pottery painting shop like Color Me Mine! Fun craft date ideas: each of you picks a piece of pottery to paint to give to your partner when you’re finished, or collaborate on a larger couple’s project piece for you to enjoy together.

3. String Art Class

String art isn’t just for summer camp anymore! Get in on this crafty home decor trend by purchasing a kit to finish at home or take a class. There are tons of designs to choose from, so you’re bound to find something that fits your’s and your partner’s style.

4. Paint & Sip Class

This isn’t your typical art class. Whether it’s BYOB or hosted at a location with a bar, grab your honey and learn how to paint while you enjoy a drink or two. Each class has a different painting you’ll learn, so you can choose what you’d like to paint and register for that specific class.

5. Sketch Each Other

You don’t have to be a great artist to do this fun and romantic craft date idea. This can even be a free activity—just use a regular pencil and printer paper or go big with a sketchbook and charcoal pencils. Keep the drawings a surprise until you’re both finished, and then reveal them to each other. Don’t worry about accuracy. It’s all about love!

6. DIY Paint Night At Home

If you’re looking for a relaxing night in, why not have your own paint and sip at home? To participate in couples projects such as this one, buy a pack of canvases, a variety of paint colors, brushes, and either source inspiration online or come up with an idea on your own. Then, you can paint and spend time together without leaving the house!

7. Take Inspiration From Nature

This is a two-part date! Go for a walk or hike together, respectfully collecting leaves and flowers, and then bring them home. Press the leaves and flowers between parchment paper, and once they are dried, you can use them in a fun date night craft. Frame your collection, make a decorative bowl, and more!

8. Play With Clay

You don’t need a pottery wheel or a kiln to make clay art! Air-dry clay is fun and simple to use. Even oven-baked clay is excellent for beginners. Buy enough clay so the two of you can each do a couple of DIY projects. Sculpt a ring dish, succulent pot, or even a statue of their dog! The sky’s the limit with what you can create for each other with clay.

9. Photo To Wood Transfer

This nifty trick is easy to accomplish with Mod Podge or gel medium. Take a printout of a cherished photo, flip it face down onto a smooth piece of wood, and apply the medium to the back of the photo. Almost like magic, the photo will transfer onto the wood. Print photos of camping trips and bonfires and each other, and you’ll have rustic wooden photo prints that make a great gift.

10. Scrap Your Memories

If you’re searching for crafts to do with your boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse that captures your love, this is it! Gather photos and mementos from a trip, event, or just a great day you had with your significant other, and create a fun collage-inspired display in a floating frame. You can both arrange and decide what to include in the frame.

11. Show Off Your Magnetic Love

Photo magnets are super inexpensive to make—you just need the magnets! Glue cut-out photos onto magnets for a fun gift for your honey, or make your own magnetic frame with craft scraps around the house. Since the frames are small, you don’t need a lot of materials.

12. Brew Your Own Beer

Brewing beer, like cooking, is a DIY process you can carry out in your kitchen. The goal is to turn starch into sugar, yeast into alcohol, and hops into a flavorful beverage. You do so with a starter kit and a little bit of patience (the brewing process takes time, after all). This is a unique DIY for couples project that partners who enjoy a tasty beverage will love to do together.

13. Let Your Love Bloom

Gardening is a relaxing and tremendously rewarding way to spend time with your loved one. You can use a garden to grow food in the summer or experiment with flowers and fragrant herbs in the spring. You don’t need a large backyard or a green thumb to get started. In fact, even if you have never planted anything before, you can still turn your garden into a lush and beautiful space.

Date Night Crafts are for Everyone!

You don’t have to be in a serious relationship to do these fun DIY projects for couples. Taking a pottery class or getting a little messy at Spin Art Nation are great date night options for couples, no matter how long you’ve been together. The goal of couples crafts is to have fun and get to know each other better, and creating art with another person can be a special experience.

So, what are waiting for? Pick one of these activities and get ready to have some fun!

12 Enchanting Princess Party Ideas


12 Enchanting Princess Party Ideas

A princess party is a fun theme for elementary school age kids, but really, the fascination with royalty crosses the boundaries of time, age, and gender. A princess party is an opportunity to get dressed up, escape the real world, and rule a magical kingdom! 

Ready to plan something special for your child’s next birthday? Check out this list of fun princess-themed party ideas!

Princess Party Ideas for Kids

Here are twelve princess party ideas to create wonderful memories for years to come.

1. Watch a Favorite Princess Movie

Whether it’s Cinderella, Mulan, or Tiana, center a princess party around watching a favorite princess movie. Or for an older crowd, why not watch a documentary about a real-life princess? Whichever princess sets the theme for your party, choose food and decorations to follow suit. For example, screening a documentary about modern day British royalty calls for tea, biscuits, and displaying the Union Jack flag. Watching Beauty and the Beast calls for an all-out “Be Our Guest” moment: offer fine French food, patisseries, and fancy linen napkins!

2. Spin Art

Not all princess birthday party ideas have to be completely centered around princesses themselves. Creating lovely art can be a wonderful addition to a princess party. After all, princesses through the years have traditionally sat to have their portraits painted. But instead of a stuffy old portrait, make it abstract! At Spin Art Nation, instructors help kids create a unique and colorful piece of art to treasure and take home. Pick colors in the color palette of their favorite Disney princess, like red, green, and purple for The Little Mermaid. Or go wild with the whole rainbow! Book your next birthday party in San Antonio or Atlanta today!

3. Dress Up

A dress up party is a chance to express your creativity, and it’s fun for all ages. Each guest can dress up as their favorite prince or princess. There are so many variations on a princess costume, and each contributes to different princess party theme ideas. Tell your guests to go for a traditional princess look (a flowing pink gown and sparkling gold tiara) or open it up to alternative types of princesses. Why not go for a goth-chic spider princess costume or a sci-fi alien princess look? A princess costume party isn’t just perfect for Halloween, it’s great any time of the year!

4. Hire a Party Princess

For preschool age kids, hiring a party princess (or several) to talk with the kids and take photos with them is like having Disneyworld in your own backyard. An actor dressed up as a specific princess will absolutely delight a younger crowd, especially for a princess-themed birthday. Guests can take pictures and talk with the “princesses.” And every princess needs a castle: a bounce castle rounds out the most perfect birthday ever.

5. Decorate!

For princess party decoration ideas, you can’t go wrong with a gold and pink color palette. Hang streamers and balloons. For the dining area, lay out matching princess-themed paper napkins and plates, or go fancy with lace tablecloth and fine china. As far as homemade princess party decoration ideas go, consider tabletop confetti made from hole punched pink construction paper. Or go above and beyond by making custom banners with a royal emblem of your own design, perhaps featuring the face of the birthday star! Hoist the colors when the guests make their entrance, and formally announce the guests as they arrive as Prince or Princess (name) of (residence).

6. Visit an American Castle

While the U.S. doesn’t have any official royal castles, there are some estates that are just as impressive. American “castles” include The Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina and Bannerman Castle in Beacon, New York. A small group tour is a wonderful activity for a princess-themed party: learn about the history of these enchanting mansions, perhaps they did host real American royalty at one point!

7. Special Invitations

When it comes to Disney princess birthday party ideas, special invitations are a must! Sending paper invitations is becoming a lost art in the age of texting and emails, but receiving a party invitation in the mail will light up a kid’s face. It makes them feel valued and special, and can be kept as a keepsake for years to come. Note the time, date, location, R.S.V.P. date, and any other relevant information or requests on the invites. For example, mention whether a meal will be served, if there is a dress code, and what princess party games to expect. Choose an invitation design that matches with your Disney princess party decoration ideas: you may choose just one princess to feature in your party theme, or multiple!

8. Party Favors

To welcome each guest as they arrive, crown them! Putting a sparkly tiara or crown upon their head is a way to set the mood immediately. If you want to go all out, give them a wand, too! Crowns and wands (even if made out of construction paper) will make each guest feel special and happy to be there. They double as party favors to take home. Other party favors may include a goody bag full of candy, bubbles, Play-Doh, temporary tattoos, or plastic sunglasses.

9. Go Glam with Hair, Makeup, and Painted Nails

Of course, if The Princess Diaries movies have taught us anything, it’s that there is more to being a princess than the glitz and glam. But for a party, that’s the fun part! For an older child’s party, set up a day-spa at your home, complete with a nail polish station, hair accessories, makeup to play with, and moisturizing face masks (with cucumbers over the eyes, of course). This type of pampering is super fun for teenagers who can’t wait to act like grown ups. And for those a bit older, go to a real spa and get it all done professionally! Don’t forget to take tons of pictures!

10. Ballroom Dance Class

For a truly elegant experience, have party guests all take a ballroom dance class! Whether they learn just a few steps or a whole routine, it’s a fun opportunity to wear a long dress and twirl about doing the waltz. Go to a ballroom, or hire a dance teacher to come to your home and give a quick lesson. Be sure to state on the invitations if certain shoes are required. If you host at your home, clear a large space beforehand. Get ready to waltz!

11. Cupcake Decorating

Cupcake decorating is a fun, hands-on activity for a princess-themed party. Strawberry cake and icing fits a pink theme. Or have food dye on hand to color white icing any color the guests choose. Browse the baking aisle to find Disney princesses cupcake toppers and liners, sprinkles, and other edible goodies to deck out the cupcakes. Be sure to ask about any guests’ food allergies or dietary restrictions before shopping for ingredients.

12. Hang a Piñata

Most party stores have piñatas available in the shape of a character from a favorite Disney movie. Fill the piñata with goodies like costume jewelry and candy. Offer princess-themed goody bags to put the piñata contents in. Hang it in a safe area where kids can take their best swing (backyards or parks with lots of space are ideal). Make sure to have the baseball bat and blindfold ready! If the kids strike out after a few swings, be ready to point them in the right direction.

How to Prepare for a Princess Party

To prepare for a princess party, know that some guests might use it as an excuse to unleash their inner diva. As the parent hosting the party, gently remind attendees to use their best manners, because that’s what real princesses do! 

In addition to mentally preparing, here are some items a parent will need for a successful princess party:

  • A good party includes food, beverages, decorations, activities, and party favors. If you ask guests to supply their own costumes or supplies, make sure to have some extras on hand so no one feels left out. “Princess” food can be all-out gourmet, or keep it simple and dainty with cupcakes and finger sandwiches.
  • Glitter might be tempting to include in your princess party decor ideas, but it can be difficult to get out of your hair and carpets. But if your princess insists on glitter, it’s manageable with patience, a duster, and a good vacuum.
  • Have plenty of hand sanitizer and surface wipes to clean hands, tables, and door knobs after the party concludes.
  • Pump the music! Have a playlist of Disney songs from princess movies on rotation. Get ready to hear the iconic Frozen song on repeat!
  • Have the cell phone numbers of all the guests’ parents on hand in case of emergency.
  • Extra helping hands! Don’t be afraid to ask for help from guests’ parents if you need it.

And of course, flexibility. Sometimes things run late or activities don’t go as planned. That’s okay! An upbeat attitude (helped along by upbeat music) keeps the good vibes flowing.

11 Fun Party Craft Ideas for Kids


11 Fun Party Craft Ideas for Kids

Who doesn’t love getting creative? For adults and kids alike, it’s always fun creating something by hand. However, it’s especially important for children to let loose and express themselves with creative projects. It’s important for developing crucial skills they’ll use later in life, giving them a chance to gain confidence, cultivate problem-solving skills, and practice collaboration with others. Not to mention, it’s fun! 

So why not incorporate arts and crafts in your child’s next birthday party? Get out your pen and paper and get ready to jot these ideas down, because we’ve got some awesome party craft ideas for you!

Craft Party Ideas For Children

Below are eleven arts and crafts birthday party ideas for kids of all ages.

1. Spin Art

Looking for creative art party ideas for 7-year-olds? Spin Art Nation is a hit with all ages and genders, perfect for birthday parties in San Antonio and Atlanta. Kids grab the colors they want, and our instructors help them make an abstract painting with plenty of spirals, circles, and “splats” using our specialized spinning paint method. No artistic talent is needed, and there is no right or wrong way to do it. Kids can just let loose and have fun with this exciting way to paint! Want to impress the other parents? Adults can accompany kids, and they will have a blast creating their own masterpieces, too!

2. Local Museum

Looking to plan something for kids who are creative and curious about the world around them? Check out offerings at your local children’s museum. They often have special event days, craft workshops, and other interactive exhibits that stimulate the brain in a creative way. Or, for kids slightly older, your local art museum might offer special event days or workshops geared toward entertaining kids with hands-on drawing, painting, or pottery making.

3. Jewelry Making

What’s more fun than making matching friendship bracelets at a kids’ party? Keep it simple for younger kids by making small bracelets with large beads, and be ready to assist in tying knots. The older the kids, the more interested they will be in a larger variety of beads or thread. Go to your local crafts store to get the necessary clasps, colored plastic or glass beads, and maybe even gemstones. Whether it’s bracelets, necklaces, or just a string of beads, kids will love bringing this party favor home!

4. Outdoor Finger Painting

Finger painting: a timeless kids’ classic. It’s perfect for a nice day outside in the backyard. If you’re hosting a summer party, keep it cool by having kids wear bathing suits and washing off the nontoxic paint with a hose or sprinkler! No brushes needed: just some large containers of various colored paints. To teach young kids how to mix colors, consider only getting blue, yellow, and red. Encourage them to mix them to create green, purple, and orange hues. Get big pieces of paper to make handprints and footprints!

5. Assemble Holiday Crafts

When the weather is too cold for pool parties and other outdoor party activities, crafting inside is a way for kids to channel pent-up energy and express themselves by making a holiday keepsake. Assembling holiday crafts is the best kind of craft birthday party for birthdays that fall in December. Homemade Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Christmas crafts are treasures that become priceless. Decorate gingerbread houses as a culinary craft at one station, and you can make paper snowflakes at another. All-in-one holiday craft kits will save you the trouble of buying individual craft components – no need to make the gingerbread from scratch!

6. Weave or Cross-stitch

Once you get the hang of it, a quiet craft like weaving or cross-stitching is fun to do for older kids who may have a bit less energy. A simple hand-woven bookmark requires just yarn and two fingers. Cross-stitching is beginner embroidery, so it requires some dexterity, and kids must be able to handle blunt needles. Offer matching patterns, like a “Best Friends Forever” cross-stitch, or different patterns and yarn colors. Make sure to complete this type of craft ahead of time, so you have a feel for the difficulty level and time required to complete.

7. Pottery Class

Let kids get their hands dirty with a pottery class! Whether it’s making a mug, bowl, dish, or plate, pottery is a craft that has practical uses as well as aesthetic. Sculpting 3D art is different from composing a 2D drawing or painting, and some kids who aren’t confident in their 2D art skills may find their new passion with a chance at the spinning wheel. Everyone loves a chance to get a little messy with no consequences!

8. Paint Rocks or Shells

This kid crafts party idea is fun and easy to do on a low budget. And if you do it outside, there’s no need to lay down newspapers or a protective tarp. Just pick a spot in the grass and paint a colorful design or pattern on a rock or shell (opt for non-toxic paint for an eco-friendly option). Gather the shells and rocks beforehand, or add the hunt for the perfect shell or rock as part of the activity. Be sure to get a variety of paint brushes, paper towels, smocks, and cups of water to rinse out the brushes. Pro tip: to turn a regular rock or shell into a new little buddy, glue on two goofy googly eyes!

9. Paint or Carve Pumpkins and Gourds

Planning an autumn-themed crafting party around Halloween? Have a pumpkin carving party! Print out templates for faces and designs. Have plenty of trash receptacles available for pumpkin guts, or perhaps keep the seeds to toast and eat as a snack. Don’t want sharp carving tools around younger kids? A pumpkin painting party is a wonderful alternative. Any size pumpkins can be painted, as well as any shaped gourd. Some gourds are naturally shaped like geese, others come in all funny shapes and sizes. Use the shape of the gourd as creative inspiration.

10. Create Magazine Collages

Creating collages out of magazine clippings is one of those classic girls’ craft party ideas fit for a sleepover. Gather scissors, tape, glue, glitter markers, and construction paper. Press “Play” on an upbeat music playlist. Ask attendees to bring their favorite magazines, but also have an assortment on hand that you don’t mind getting cut up. Teenagers will enjoy making a vision board of all their aspirations and inspirations. For any age kid, a collage is a mishmash of words, phrases, photos, and images that bring joy. A completed collage can be hung in their room or used to decorate a locker or notebook at school.

11. Fabric Paint on Matching T-Shirts

A fun party activity is creating matching shirts. It’s a great way to commemorate friendships and off a memento of their special party. First, buy some plain white or tie-dye T-shirts – one for everyone at the party. Make sure to get the correct sizes for the kids beforehand. Get fabric paint and pens – glow in the dark, glitter, and/or a variety of colors. If you use spray paint (this should only be used for older kids), make sure to have masks on hand so no one breathes in the fumes. Have fun painting in the garage or the backyard! Everyone can sign each other’s names on the shirts, and write inside jokes. Kids can match them or make them all different!

Tips for Managing a Kids’ Craft Party

Now that you’ve got an idea of what type of party crafts you want to feature, you may be dreading the idea of a gaggle of children running around covered in paint. Here’s a checklist to make sure it all runs smoothly.

  • Be sure to tell the party guests if they need to bring any materials with them. Doing so can relieve the burden of the party host, but it also runs the risk of someone forgetting their T-shirt to decorate, for example. To ensure no one is left out, it’s a good idea to have all the supplies on hand. Especially if someone messes up and wants to start over, having extras keeps you prepared.
  • Allow time to prepare the space and the supplies beforehand. Get all the craft supplies, cleanup supplies, and groceries before the day of the party so you’re not rushing around right before.
  • Set a budget. Renting out a room somewhere requires more money than hosting a simple gathering at home, but that can be worth it. It means you don’t have to supply the materials or clean up afterwards. It allows the parent to relax, and perhaps even participate in the craft, and let others be responsible for safety.
  • Set realistic expectations for the age group. Young kids won’t have the attention span to complete a complex craft with a ton of instructions, especially at a party with other distractions.
  • Choose a craft that is appropriate for the time allotted. A sleepover party allows paint to dry overnight. A two hour party may require leaving the art somewhere, requiring pickup at a later date. Learning an entirely new skill requires plenty of time for trial and error, whereas completing a craft that they are already a bit familiar with will take less time.
  • Don’t forget snacks and beverages! Whether you order in, go out to eat after making the craft, host a potluck, or cook yourself, kids like to keep it simple. While the kids make the craft, you can put the food together, or order takeout, so that the food is ready by the time they are finished.
  • Encourage kids to clean up as they go. Tell them where the trash and recycling bins are. Sanitize the crafting station before and after.
  • Remind kids to be safe when using crafting tools. Also, you should always have bandages and a first-aid kit on hand in case someone gets a papercut or other craft-related injury.

Party It Up at Spin Art Nation

If you’re in need of kids’ party craft ideas no cleanup needed, Spin Art Nation is the place to go. Kids and kids-at-heart will enjoy a supervised and fun experience with the ultimate party favor to take home: personalized art. Make a reservation at our San Antonio or Atlanta studio today!

Date Night in Atlanta: 19 of the Best Things to Do

  1. A Picnic in the Park

    A picnic is a classic date night idea. Stop by one of your favorite restaurants and pick up a gourmet meal for two. 

    Once you’ve grabbed your food, head to one of Atlanta’s scenic parks. A favorite of ours is Piedmont Park. With over 200 acres of land, this urban oasis is the perfect place for a picnic. Spread out a blanket near Lake Clara Meer, dine on your delicious dinner, and relax with the one you love.

    After dinner, take a romantic stroll through the park.

  3. The Tuscan Wine-Tasting Experience

    You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a trip to Italy to taste the spirit of Tuscany. There are estate wineries located just outside Atlanta in Dahlonega, GA.

    The wineries in this area and nearby towns are some of the most underrated in the world. These first-class Tuscan wineries stick to the techniques and traditions of old Italy, ensuring you get the authentic wine you expect.

    Schedule a wine tour for you and your partner and enjoy some good old-fashioned wine tasting. Even better, buying wine directly from the vineyard will nearly always be cheaper than purchasing it from a shop since you avoid the dramatic markups. So, pick up a bottle or two to drink later as a memento of your date.

  4. Pamper Yourself with a Couple’s Massage

    Squeezing in quality together time during the busy working week is far from easy. Thankfully, The Waldorf Astoria Spa in Buckhead can melt away the stress of a hectic week and allow you do it with your partner. 

    Treat your special someone to a couple’s retreat that doesn’t require you to travel long distances. These couples’ massages are designed for relaxation with a sprinkling of romance.

    Soak into an aromatic bath for two, cleanse the skin with some exfoliation, and sink into bliss with an aromatherapy session.

  5. Go Ice Skating in a Winter Wonderland

    Ice skating in Atlanta isn’t available all year round. However, ice skating is a tempting option if you’re searching for a date night in Atlanta from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day. 

    Several ice skating rinks pop up around the city to welcome the locals for a romantic night on the town. Don’t worry if you have no experience skating. Many of these rinks have sessions set aside for guided lessons.

  6. Go Outdoors with an Adventure Night in Chattahoochee

    Are you someone who prefers to go outdoors and enjoy nature?

    If you’re outdoorsy, head over to the Chattahoochee Nature Center. The friendly staff is there to give you the exciting adventure you expect with your partner. Different activities are scheduled throughout the year, so look up their latest line-up to see what’s happening for your specific time frame. 

    Examples of activities include outdoor movie nights, hiking, and even moonlight canoeing. Whether it’s a first date or a 50th, some fun on the river is an excellent Atlanta date night experience.

  7. Summit Stone Mountain

    Stone Mountain is an icon for anyone who lives in Atlanta. One of the most fun dates in Atlanta is to tackle Stone Mountain. Don’t worry, it’s not particularly taxing, and you don’t need to have any mountaineering experience.

    You have two options for climbing Stone Mountain. If you’re physically fit, consider hiking to the top for a challenge. Alternatively, you can take the gondola ride to the top. Then, take a leisurely walk around with your date. 

    Many couples even bring along a picnic lunch during the day or a bottle of wine in the evening to enjoy as they watch the sunset from the top of the mountain.

  8. Take it to the Max in a New Porsche

    Have you always dreamed of driving a Porsche? Now you can at the Porsche Experience Center. Sign yourself up for the driving school, and they’ll give you the driving program customized to you.

    You’ll learn the ins and outs of a Porsche from a qualified instructor. After the training and safety briefs are out of the way, you can let loose on the track and put your driving skills to the test.

    Get the heart racing and see who has the best time before retreating for a quiet coffee or a romantic dinner.

  9. Learn the Secrets of the Driving Pros

    If adrenaline is your middle name, why not learn the secrets about posting the fastest times down at Xtreme Xperience?

    As far as date ideas Atlanta go, this is a popular favorite for couples because you aren’t restricted to a specific vehicle type. Xtreme Xperience has a selection of exotic vehicles you can drive. Make your dreams come true and go like a pro. They even have regular events where you can meet up with other couples.

  10. Challenge Your Partner to a Go-Kart Race

    Race head-to-head on your very own go-kart at Andretti Indoor Karting and Games. No training is required, and the track is easy enough to master. Throw a few laps together and see who has the best time. Who said go-karts were only for kids?

    Andretti has a bowling alley, other games, and a full-service bar. Unlike visiting a fancy restaurant, the dress code is strictly casual.

  11. Be a Tourist in Your Own Town

    You may think that options for day dates in Atlanta are limited, but there’s a reason why the city welcomes thousands of tourists per year. Have you ever felt like you want to know more about the place you live?

    Take an impromptu stayvacation in Atlanta for an evening. Book yourself a Downtown Atlanta hotel and be a tourist in your own town.

    Start with the National Center for Civil and Human Rights to learn more about the history-making American civil rights movement, which remains all the more relevant today. After you’ve finished with the museum, take a stroll through the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park. There are 35 acres so choose the route that appeals to you.

    There’s also the World of Coca-Cola. Learn about the history of the world’s most popular soft drink through the 4D movie experience. You will even get to sample some Coca-Cola products from around the world.

    Finally, schedule a slot on the Love Stories tour in the Oakland Cemetery. The Love Stories Tour takes place only in February and charts the loves, lives, and losses of the locals of yesteryear. You can also check out the Atlanta History Center if you want a full day of checking out what the city looked like long ago.

    With so much to do as a tourist, you may want to spread this itinerary across a few dates in Atlanta.

  12. See the City from Your Handlebars

    Most people drive in Atlanta, but why not see the city differently? Bicycle Tours of Atlanta offers trips that cover eight miles of the city, lasting roughly three hours. You will cover many of the city’s historic parts during that time, including the King Historic District, the Old Fourth Ward, and Cabbagetown.

    You will have the opportunity to hop on and off your bike along the way, so it’s not too taxing. If you want to sample some of Atlanta’s other districts as part of your date, a bike tour is an ideal way to do it.

  13. Hunt Down Some Street Art

    One of the things that makes this city unique is the public artwork on display across the city. Whether it’s graffiti art, giant murals, or contemporary art installations, you have likely come across some of these spots in the past.

    Turn it into a treasure hunt and visit some different pieces as part of your own private scavenger hunt or join the Living Walls tour and get a personalized tour across town.

  14. Get Cultured at the High Museum of Art

    The High Museum of Art is one of the American Southeast’s premier art galleries. You will find more than 17,000 different pieces of art housed in several galleries. Visit their website to see what other events they’re holding at the museum now.

    The staff regularly runs classes, workshops, and special events. If you can get tickets, you may even want to schedule a date night at the Highball Charity Mixologist Event. Alternatively, why not visit for a laidback Friday evening jazz night?

    The High Museum of Art is a staple of the community, and it’s well worth a visit as part of your date night Atlanta.

  15. A Night Under the Stars with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

    The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra plays concerts all over the city, and their repertoire extends much further than classical music alone. They play everything from contemporary music to popular movie soundtracks.

    For example, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has held concerts dedicated to the music of Star Wars and Prince, alongside the usual classical options. Indoors or under the stars, discover their upcoming events and find the one that’s right for you.

  16. Discover Atlanta’s Secret Bar

    The chances are you have heard of the restaurant Muss & Turner’s. Few people realize there is a secret speakeasy hidden just outside. The name of the speakeasy is Eleanor’s, and to reach it, you need to go through the back of the restaurant and out through the cooler door.

    Eleanor’s is a secret bar even most locals have never heard of. While it’s incredible for drinks during the later night hours, the dinner crowd tends to head in earlier, which changes the atmosphere.

    Depending on what you want out of your date night in Atlanta, set your time to visit accordingly.

  17. Take in the Atlanta Skyline

    See Atlanta from above with a visit to Skyline Park. Many people believe Skyline Park is a place for kids, but that’s not the case once nighttime sets in. After daytime activities end, the area becomes all about cocktails and fun.

    Nine Mile Station is a popular eatery nearby to combine with cocktails before or after you visit. Since it’s within easy reach of other attractions like Ponce City Market, you can make a night of Skyline Park or use it as an appetizer before your main event date night activity.

  18. Go Back in Time with a Huey Chopper Ride

    The Army Aviation and Heritage Center is responsible for offering rides in real Huey choppers. Return to a time when aviation was as scary as it was exhilarating. Henry County is the place to go for this epic experience.

    Don’t worry, these restored, and well-maintained Huey choppers are perfectly safe to ride, and the team makes every effort to ensure your safety throughout the experience.

  19. Romantic Glamping Adventure in the Wilderness

    Not everyone wants to rough it in a tent while enjoying the wilderness. Now you don’t have to with a romantic glamping adventure.

    Head north in a treehouse or a tiny romantic house for an evening or two. These abodes are ideal for couples who want candles and a bottle of bubbly for an evening alone.

    Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, if only for a night.
