When it comes to going on dates, some ideas get overdone way too much. Dinner and a movie can be nice from time to time, but sometimes you just want to do something different. These are just some of our favorite ideas for weird dates you can add to your couple’s bucket list.
1. Go Give Blood
If you want a weird idea for a date, let’s start off with something that you will use your blood sweat and tears for… or at least your blood. You and your partner can take some time to be charitable for a date and head to the local blood bank and donate some blood for those who need it.
2. Check Out the Real “South Park Colorado”
South Park is a popular television series that features a wide cast of characters that include strange items, children, Satan himself, and more. South Park manages to grab people’s attention in the best and worst of ways and is always guaranteed to get either a laugh or a look of disgust from the people around you. Now you can visit the real South Park City in Fairbanks Colorado and enjoy one of the weirdest tourist traps in the country.
3. Head to Uranus Missouri For Some Fudge
No, you are not misreading that sentence. Uranus Missouri is a real place that really banks from its very unfortunate town name. Everyone in this town seems to be making the best of the name, and making many people laugh with many silly jokes and signs. All of them are related to how much fun you can have in “Uranus”. Of course, if the fun you can have in Uranus isn’t enough to convince you to visit, you can head over to the Uranus fudge factory to get a piece of decadent fudge straight from Uranus.
4. The World’s Most Deadly Garden for a Killer Date
The Alnwick Garden, located in the United Kingdom, is a great place for any weird globe trekking couple to visit. This garden is home to the unique poison garden where you can go and check out over 100 of the most deadly plants in the world. Just make sure to always follow safety precautions and to not taste anything no matter how tempting they might be.
5. Grab Some Googly Eyes
Sometimes all you need for a good date is a reason to laugh with each other. It seems that googly eyes are a great way to make yourself and the person you love laugh. Grab a bag of googly eyes from the local craft store and have both you and your partner decorate things with them. Is that trash can looking shocked that you forgot to separate the recycling? Well, it is now! Is that fork looking at you funny? You bet it is. Go around and see how many things you can put googly eyes on before you decide you’ve had enough or you have run out of the things.
Play With Each Other At An Interactive Museum
Across the states, you can find many different types of interactive museums if you look around. You can also find many of these places cater just as much to adults as they cater to young children. From the Science Center and City Museums of St. Louis Mo, to the National Video Game Museum in Frisco Texas, and the Fred Rogers Center in Latrobe Pennsylvania. There are lots of options for places you can go to play and learn some interesting facts.
Create a Shopping Challenge
This is a date idea that is still considered to be weird but is gaining popularity. Have you and your partner choose a store completely at random, then create a set of rules. These rules can include a budget, time limit, the color of items you are allowed to buy, the number, and so much more! Create your shopping challenge, go shopping, and then when you both get home share what you have bought for each other.
Take Your Favorite Person to the Ben and Jerry’s Factory
Ben and Jerry’s is a favorite household name for many people that get eaten nearly every day. Founded in 1978 by the company’s namesake duo in Burlington Vermont, this company had humble beginnings in a renovated gas station. Now you can visit the factory with your favorite person and eat tons of free samples. And perhaps the strangest of all, visit the flavor graveyard and pay your respects to all the flavors that simply didn’t do enough. If you don’t have a favorite person to go with just yet you can go to Hily app and sign up to meet others who share your love for ice cream and other weird things.
