So you managed to survive the first date and now you want to plan something fun for the second. What do you do on those in between dates, anyway?
The weather is breezy and the day is perfect to take your date out for a day of fun. Fun date ideas are easy to come by in San Francisco, and the exciting urban activities blend well with the surrounding natural world.
Experience all of San Francisco in a single place. The Wharf is chock full of street performers, novelty and eccentric shops as well as some of the best clam chowder and sourdough bread the city has to offer. Add Fisherman’s Wharf to your list of fun date ideas and you won’t be disappointed. Go for the food, the fun, and even the smells. The sea lions on Pier 39 will entertain you for hours before you head over to Ghirardelli square for a sundae. Yes, the Wharf is a bit touristy, but that is all part of the fun!
Do you want to see a true piece of American history? If your girl is up for unusually fun date ideas, take her to Alcatraz Island and sample the life led by some of the nation’s worst criminals. Al Capone and other famous wrong-doers existed for years in this dank location. Tours are led by well-versed guides, some of whom were residents of the Rock before it was shut down. Envision yourself behind bars together or plan an escape attempt. If nothing else, the cool breeze will encourage you to huddle together for warmth, and that is always a good thing.
San Francisco has the largest Chinatown outside of Asia. For a dose of history and a strong ethnic flavor, head over the Chinatown for some fun date ideas. Browse through the unique wares of traditional Chinese shops, or stop over for authentic cuisine. Festivals and events are frequent to celebrate important days in the Chinese year or for the fun of it. Take the famous cable car through Chinatown for an overall sample, and hop off to explore the area more thoroughly.
Experience the ancient world by standing or hiking beneath the virgin redwood trees in this forest just north of the city. Famous for not only beauty, but for a history riddled with political and diplomatic figures, Muir Woods is perfect for naturally fun date ideas. Take a leisurely stroll or a more challenging hike with your girl as you marvel and the majestic scenery and completely escape from the busy city you’ve left behind for the day.
