History Of The Dallas Dating Scene

History Of The Dallas Dating Scene

There's more than a little Spanish influence in Dallas, and you will find that the Dallas dating scene has been suffused with Iberian culture since Texas began as one of the far south outposts of the US. If you want to sample some true Spanish and Mexican cuisine head up Stone Street Gardens downtown; this is one of the real culture hubs of the city, an area packed with bars, bistros, restaurants, and quaint little eateries, any one of which would make a delightful venue for a date. Stone Street is also a STONE's throw from the downtown Arts District, long a place where couples would meander among the exhibits, lost in love. If live music is your thing, you may be interested to know that Deep Ellum, just east of downtown, was originally the stomping ground for a lot of early blues players in the Twenties and Thirties; today, Deep Ellum is still a bumping area, which plenty of joints to hang out with your squeeze and chill to some dope tunes.

Best Times To Go Out

Best Times To Go Out

This is kind of dependent on what style of date you would like. Some people like to go on dates during the day, and some at night. Then again, there is the kind of date that starts in the day and kind of melts into the evening. These are some of the most romantic dates. Dallas has distinct areas, and depending on what kind of activity you want, each area is specific to certain closing times, certain vibes. If you want to catch some culture, try the chilled out Arts District, which pretty much follows museum opening times. Want a meal and a drink? Check happening Stone Street, which follows restaurant hours. If you want to hit a club, you're looking at heading out on the ever busy main strip for ten pm on a weekend and getting back for around 3 am. It's up to you, and feel free to wander between Dallas's different areas and mix it up a little!

If you want a hands on activity to really go wild with your partner and don't mind getting wet then you might want to try the White Rock Paddle Company. They do kayaking, rafting, and paddle-boarding, so you can sit or stand as you and your date roam around on the waters together under the careful eye of an instructor and alongside other water sports fans making a big splash and having a lot of fun. This may be a great date idea for folk who already have some experience on the water. If you are nervous on the water, or flat out cannot swim, you might want to give it a miss.

Brief Description:
Six clues, one hour, and a few different rooms to try. If you haven't done it before, escaping from a panic room is one of the most exhilarating buzzes you can get, and it is certainly a good bonding experience. They use these things for corporate events, so that you should give you some idea of their value as team building and bonding exercises -- a great idea for couples! Team up as you figure out how to escape, and this will be a fun idea for a date. Some of the rooms are pretty hard, but you will have a great time even if you do not manage to escape! (The nice thing is, you DO actually get to leave, even if you don't figure out the puzzles...) Definitely one of the more unique ideas on our list, and not for the faint hearted! Give it a go if you and your date like to solve puzzles, or are fans of the thriller movie genre.

A very popular tavern that is a big hit with the LGBT community. It's lively, it's bright, it's fun, and if you bring a date here they are assured 100% of a truly great time. It is the last date idea on our list, but it is one of the best places in Dallas bar none (no pun intended.) There is always something to do here, so if this is like your first, second or third date and you need a way to break the ice then grab one of the many board games they have lying around to try, or wait for the karaoke to start and grab the microphone for a date night to remember!
