If you recently purchased an Irvine home for sale and have a significant other, this article is for you. Irvine may not be known as the romance capital of California, but there are plenty of places you and your significant other can enjoy together. Aside from the traditional dinner and a movie idea, try these five date night ideas.
1. Irvine Regional Park
This sprawling park is a great location for a date night given the number of activities offered. You and your flame can put your coordination to the test on a tandem bike, enjoy the open water on a paddle boat, or pretend you’re from the Wild West while enjoying a ride through the park on horseback. There are also plenty of hiking trails throughout the park. Pack a picnic lunch and make a whole day of it.
2. Balboa Island
Balboa Island is a hop, skip, and a jump away from the hustle and bustle in Irvine. You can drive or be more adventurous and take a short ferry ride across. This quiet and quaint island is perfect for a stroll, intimate conversations and a delicious fresh pastry. After checking out the charming shops, stop by the dock for a ride on the Ferris wheel.
3. The Bay
Whether you’re a paddleboard pro or just getting your feet wet, you and your date can enjoy a romantic night out during a full moon paddleboard class. Pirate Coast Paddle offers a quick lesson before heading out to Newport Back Bay for an hour and a half paddleboard session under a glowing fullmoon. The class is $35 and glow sticks are included.
4. Bowling Alleys and Arcades
For competitive couples, classic date ideas like bowling and playing games are always a hit. Head to Lucky Strike OC for an upscale, trendy bowling experience complete with delicious food and lane-side service. After a game or two, head into Dave and Busters where you can challenge your significant other to a game of skeeball or see who can make the most baskets in the time given.
5. Comedy Club
For good laughs all night long, head to the Irvine Improv Comedy Club. The food is fine, but the comedians are great. The club is known to get some big names from both TV and film, prices are reasonable and the drinks are stiff.
