Best Cleveland Date Ideas

Are you tired of the same old dinner and a movie date?


Been to the mall a few too many times?


Maybe you've started getting looks from the regulars at the coffee shop for bringing so many different "significant others" in such a short time period.


Or maybe you haven't been on a date in a while because of the sheer difficulty of thinking of something fun to do...




Look no further! Cleveland, Ohio is here to save the dat and has so much to offer for unique and unforgettable date ideas.


Unique and Fun Cleveland Date Ideas

I've compiled a little list for you of the most unique and fun date ideas in Cleveland. I think it'll be enough to keep you fully stocked on ideas and ready to enamor the girl or guy of your dreams!


Cleveland Zoo Lights

I get it. The zoo is the last place you might think of for a date. You're probably thinking it's for families, or for elementary school field trips. I hate to break it to you...but you're wrong! The Cleveland Zoo will truly make for a date to remember, especially during the Christmas season when the lights are on (but really, any time of year is amazing!). You and your significant other can walk hand in hand and admire the diverse wildlife from all over the world. From majestic elephants to playful monkeys, there's something for everyone at this award-winning zoo. And, if you're feeling adventurous, you can even take a ride on the Zoo Choo Train for a fun and romantic excursion through the park.

The Art Museum

For a touch of culture and history, head to the Cleveland Museum of Art, where you can spend hours getting lost in the stunning works of art from around the globe. With over 90,000 pieces of art, you and your date can explore ancient civilizations, contemporary masterpieces, and everything in between. And the best part? Admission is free, so you can save your money for a romantic dinner afterwards.

Date Ideas for My "Outdoorsy" People

If you're looking for a more active date, try a paddleboat or kayak excursion on the Cuyahoga River. You and your partner can glide along the water, taking in the breathtaking views of the city skyline and the lush greenery of the river valley. If you're feeling competitive, challenge each other to a race and see who comes out on top.

Sky's the Limit

For a truly unforgettable experience, take a hot air balloon ride over Cleveland and enjoy panoramic views of the city from above. Soar over Lake Erie, watch as the sun sets over the Cuyahoga River, and enjoy a glass of champagne as you take in the breathtaking scenery. It's the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or simply enjoy a unique and romantic adventure with your loved one.
