Date night can get pretty repetitive, but it doesn;t have to. Trade in the old dinner and a movie for something more fun, spontaneous and exhilarating. Here are 10 date night ideas in Brampton that are a little more out of the norm.
1. Battle it out over board games
House of Cards is the perfect place to get a little competitive. With well over 300 games and plenty of good munchies on the menu, it’s a great place to hang for a few solid hours. At $5 per person for unlimited play, it’s a pretty cheap date option too.
2. Skate the night away
The quintessential winter date night is a jaunt along the local skating trail with some hot chocolate after. So what makes this one so different? It’s you and your hot date for one, and two Brampton’s skate trails have ambience for days. Grab your date and hit up Gage Park or Chinguacousy Park skate trail. And as for the hot chocolate? Skip it and grab a Lion Chai tea from T By Daniel instead.
3. Make your own wine
Sip some tasty wine samples and learn all about how it’s made with a winemaking workshop. Most winemaking shops in Brampton take care of the fermentation process so all you and your date have to do is find a taste that suits your palates. Accent on wine, Exclusive Wines and Corks Winery are great places to try. Check out our full list of places to make your own wine and beer in Brampton here.
4. Do some art crawling
The art gallery is a great place to get to know someone. Peel Art Gallery Museum & Archives always has a bunch of exhibits on and interesting things to explore. Just down the street from PAMA is artist-run gallery and cooperative, Beaux-Arts Brampton. Their two galleries are usually filled with cool things too.
5. Treat yo self
We can’t also jet set to Paris like Jay-Z and Beyonce to rekindle our love. So what’s the alternative? A trip down to MacaronZ, Brampton’s own little piece of Paris. Spend an afternoon taste-testing their selection of handcrafted macarons and other bite-sized desserts. Their cosy little shop in downtown Brampton is the perfect place to take a date.
6. Bike the creek
If you and your date are the outdoorsy type, grab your bikes and take on the Etobicoke Creek Trail for an afternoon. it’s a giant stretch of paths that cut through Brampton straight up to Caledon. The system runs up between Kennedy and Hurontario, and there are plenty of entry points along the way so you can make the ride as long or short as you want.
7. Laser Tag
There is nothing wrong with a little bit of competition in a relationship. Glow Zone 360 is a great place to battle it out in the laser tag arena or on the mini golf course. Invite your couple friends to tag along and make it a group event. More details here.
8. Test your problem-solving skills
Perplexity Escape rooms are designed to thrill and challenge. It’s a great way for couples to couples spend time working on their communications and teamwork skills. Come prepared mentally. This date night will include logic-based puzzles, kinesthetic, and numerical skills.
9. Battle it out like Katniss Everdeen
Battle Archery is becoming more and more popular in Brampton. It’s like dodgeball, but with arrows and with castles and other obstacles to hide in. Staff will start you off with practice lessons to make sure you impress your date. And what better way to impress someone than with bull’s eye precision?
10. Feel like a kid again
Aerosports Trampoline Park makes it easy to get active and have the most fun possible. They offer free jumps, foam pits, and ultimate dodgeball. Located off of Steeles and Highway 410, Aerosports charges about $20 to jump for an hour.
11. Make art together
Splatter Quest offers fun workshops on the art of throwing paint and making it look good. Get suited up and create some beauty on a canvas through one of their fun workshops. You may get a little bit messy, but it will be worth it because you’ll have a stunning (hopefully) piece of art to take home.
12. Peruse a bookstore
Get all Love, Actually and peruse Chapters together for some good reads. The location on Quarry Edge Drive has a Starbucks inside so you can make it a book buying trip and a coffee date rolled into one.
