THE FAVORITE 5
1. Go stargazing.
The best time to stargaze is an hour after sunset. On a balmy spring or summer night, you might preface your outing with a picnic. To identify stars and constellations, pick up a book at the library. Some of the best astronomy guides are in the Children’s Section. Ramp up the wonder by reading about the history, mystery, and mythology of star configurations. It will spark some fun discussion!
2. Pair up in a dance class.
According to Quora, there are two basic dance styles you can pursue, romantic moves or lively hustles.
- Slow, graceful dances comprise the “ballroom” category, such as Rumba, Waltz, Foxtrot, and Blues.
- Jazzy dance styles include Swing, Lindy Hop, and Lambada. Latin dances also fall under the jaunty type, such as Tango, Merengue, Bachata, and Salsa.
Dance lessons are available at studios, colleges, and community centers. Both private and group classes are typically offered. Lessons generally last one hour.
3. Page through photo albums.
Cozy up on the couch together, and travel back through time. Young couples can have fun perusing baby and family pictures. Longstanding couples can happily reminisce with photos of shared moments. Married couples might view their wedding videos. Enhance the romance with wine and cheese, or pep up the fun with popcorn.
4. Spice things up with a cooking class.
Global Post gives these tips for having a blast at a cooking class:
Select a class that provides hands-on instruction. Although a demonstration class is informative, it’s a passive activity where you watch and take notes. At a hands-on class, you get to prep ingredients and discuss what you’re doing. Small groups of less than 10 people are ideal. Lessons typically span three hours.
Cooking classes are held at cookware stores, community colleges, restaurants, and cooking schools. An easy way to locate classes is by doing a Yelp search. Other sources are Sur La Table, Williams-Sonoma, and Macy’s.
5. Wander through a garden center.
During any season, there are always enchanting plants to marvel at a garden center. Vibrant colors and sweet fragrances create a delightful date setting. You can browse pottery, home décor, silk arrangements, and floral displays. Large nurseries often have seasonal events. Autumn may offer hay rides, farm animals, and craft fairs. Spring may feature a flower show or plant expo. Seminars often take place during summer. Workshops may also be held year-round, such as pumpkin-painting and holiday wreath-making.
