Dinner, movies, bowling are all fun and great... but very over-used and over-done. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do outside of "the norm." Your brain goes blank and then you end up going for the same old thing for date night. Whether it's for a first date with someone new, or 100th date with someone you've been married to for years. Utah County has at least a dozen great places and activities to experience a more fun and memorable date experience. Here's to those making weekend date plans, we've put together a list of a little more unique date ideas.

 

The best part of all of these dates is most of them are less than $20 for a couple! 

BlasterTag:

Nerf Date

Think indoor paintball but with nerf guns and no welts! An indoor nerf arena is an absolute blast! (pun totally intended :P) 

 

Nickel City- Nickel Arcade

Arcade Date

Have a throw back date with a nickel arcade. Whether you're going retro or reminiscing the good old days of the 90's, this is a very memorable date.
