Active dates

Shake the dust off a “typical” date with some of these active date ideas:

  • Try leisure sports like bowling at Painted Pin or the driving range at Top Golf. Both places offer food, drinks, and plenty of places to relax between rounds.
  • Drive fast sports cars on a closed-course at the Porsche Driving Experience; also available are facility tours, a simulated course, and fine dining.
  • Fly high above the skyline in a helicopter ride over Atlanta or Stone Mountain.
  • Fly even higher by going skydiving! Get trained and fly tandem at Atlanta Skydiving Center or Skydive Atlanta. (You can also try indoor skydiving at iFly!)
  • Try target practice at the shooting range. Work on your hand-eye coordination while testing your skills in one of Atlanta’s many ranges.
  • Get dirty with paintball and turn your love’s jumpsuit into a splattered work of colorful art.
  • Ice skate hand-in-hand at one of Atlanta’s many pop-up ice skating rinks when the weather gets frosty.
