With that, don't forget to bring a nice bottle of wine (and the wine glasses) to help loosen your inhibitions. A note: you don’t need a wooden basket — you can use any bag to carry everything as long as you handle it with care!
Pro-Tip: Add something special to it. You could, for example, both agree on wearing something extra fancy or sophisticated. That will make a date extra funny when you're sitting at a park in between all those "ordinary" people.
2. Go to a scenic point
Especially if you live in a city where scenic points are near and accessible, spending the day sightseeing is a great way to get to know someone.
Not only will you have a lot of time to talk during the drive, but once you get there, the scenery would inevitably evoke calm and peaceful feelings that could open up your date’s heart to you. You may get to see deeper than what meets the eye.
After sightseeing, you could end the date with a nice meal nearby and have a glass of wine before the ride home.

3. Relax on a spa
This could be an unlikely first date idea, but if you and your date are both into wellness and relaxation, then a spa trip could be a great one!
Most spas offer packages for couples, which intends for the couple to have a fantastic time together. Usually, the couple is booked for different activities together, which allows them to relax and talk at an intimate space.
There are only two things that can happen here: either you get closer or awkwardness would fill the air. At least, it’s clear what you should do next!
4. Visit a flea market
Local flea markets are good places to spend the first date especially during the weekend. Flea markets are often lively with people, activities, and good finds.
To make things more fun, you can come up with a list of items to find for a scavenger hunt. Define a really tight budget, and see how each of you can get creative with it.
5. Look at the stars at a planetarium
Go to a nearby planetarium that allows visitors to stargaze freely. You don’t need to know all the constellations — just admire the stars with your date. Stargazing is equally romantic with watching the sunrise together.
