Atlanta Date Ideas (Things To Do)
|1. A Night of Culture & Love|
Plan ahead and get tickets for a show, play, or musical that you both are bound to enjoy - Atlanta has plenty of performing arts venues from which to choose. The Fox Theater is one of the very best and there is always a popular concert or show running there. The decadent setting will help put you both in a mood of nostalgia and relaxation.
After the show, head for one of the more sophisticated restaurants for a unique dining experience. Top it off with a quiet stroll and a stop for ice cream and let the magic of Atlanta do the rest.
|2. Extravagance & Pampering|
Yes, your sweetie deserves a unique and totally different experience. Hire a helicopter and take her for a ride over the city. Panoramic views of the skyline are bordered by the beautiful Chattahoochee River and Stone Mountain. Helicopters are easy to rent (try Prestige Helicopters: 770-458-6047). This is a great place to pop the question, if you are making special plans for the future.
When you descend to the ground, let her know just how special she is with a bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolates, or a small gift of love to remind her of the wonderful ride.
|3. River Romance|
The Chattahoochee is the perfect river - close to the city, yet separated enough for you to feel like you have left the boring, day-to-day grind behind. Pack a picnic, grab a blanket, and head for the banks of the river for a day of relaxation and celebration (don't forget to pack a bottle of bubbly or some good red wine).
You can take a soothing boat ride on the river and let the calming lap-lap-lap of the gentle waves lull your senses into a mellow mush of caring. Talk, discuss the future, or simply enjoy each other's company. You can almost hear the violins in the background.
|4. Stone Mountain Park|
Stone Mountain Park is the best place to go for a day of outdoor enjoyment. This is the world's largest chunk of exposed granite and you can be sure that there are plenty of hiking trails to ensure you and your love can have some private time.

If hiking is not your thing but you want to have your day in the sun, try the Great Barn. There are interesting things to do here - rope climbing and harvesting games to name a few. There is also the Civil War Museum - the spacious grounds and scenic gardens are made for those in love. Try a paddleboat ride and then check out the scenic railroad tour. This is one beautiful spot with plenty of things to do.
|5. Jazz it Up|
The Atlanta Jazz Festival is three days of fun, music, and open-air enjoyment. What better place to go to for a date than this festival where you can share not only your love for jazz music by watching street performances, impromptu jam sessions, and concerts in the evening? Attend one of the short courses or classes together (if you are so inclined). Sample the yummy fares offered at the food booths. As the sun sets and the lights come on, you will feel like you've been magically transported to a jazz-topia!

There are other festivals to choose from too: Atlanta Film Fest, the Celtic Festival, the Vibe Musicfest, and many more.

|6. Silver Comet Trail|
A 37-mile long trail that passes along an abandoned railroad track through Polk, Paulding, and Cobb counties, the Silver Comet Trail is easily navigable on bikes. Make a fun picnic and spend the day together challenging each other's stamina and energy. Stop along the way at conveniently located parking areas to refill, refresh, and refuel. Skip the first few miles where families and seniors crowd. Later portions of the trail are relatively isolated and perfect for a day out with your sweetie.
