Romantic Ideas and Places for Dating

Our list of romantic ideas and places for dating will be the catalyst to help get the romance sparks flying. If you're planning a date with your partner or going out with someone for the first time a visit to one of these locations should help make the night unforgettable. Add your own romantic ideas to enhance the experience.

When planning a date focus on what you have in common when selecting a location. For example, I love to dance. So any date that gets me on the dance floor swaying with the music and moving to the beat is a primo date. But it won't be a good choice if my date hates to dance. A good romance tip is to try to pick something from our list of romantic ideas you both can enjoy.

If you like to dance check out our list of dance clubs.

Our recommendations below will provide the launching pad to make your date memorable. Just add a bit of your own creativity and have fun. Romantic Ideas for Dancing

This is one of my favorite clubs for some of the best blues music around. The food is basic fare but good. I'm not the only one that thinks Blind Willie's should be on our list of fun romantic ideas, it gets crowded on the weekends so get there early.
