There are some truly great ways to make a unique movie date night. Unique movie theater ideas make a great place for a movie date. For instance, the Enzian in Winter Park, FL is a historic theater that has a dining experience. They have all types of movies from cult classics to holiday films and they even have a live theater. Drive-in movie theaters are so much fun. They make a fun spot for a double date or a group date!
Maybe you’re looking for a more romantic date. How about a sunset cruise. Tampa Bay, Clearwater, the Keys, Naples. Let’s face it, Florida has water surrounding us and you can see a sunset even on the East coast. Make a romantic evening on the water or a special occasion. Make an all-day date across the sunshine state by starting the morning on the east coast for a sunrise kayak, find your perfect spot for lunch, and make your way across to the west coast for a sunset cruise.
Food trucks are a great way to have a strolling date night. In our town, we have food truck Fridays where all the food trucks come to our downtown area and you can walk around to all the trucks and try a little of everything.
