Minneapolis Date Ideas (Things To Do)
|1. Romanctic Adventure|
You can show your "babe" a great time at the Mall of America. Get off to a piping hot start with a wide selection of coffee and mouth-watering pastries. At The Park, a ride on the Skyscraper Ferris Wheel will render a romantic moment or two, or you can gamble on the more adventurous options.

If you have not won your love a stuffed animal at the park's games, there are plenty of stores where you can redeem yourself. Better still, stop by one of the jewelers and pick up the "rock" to pop the question at dinner later, at one of the Mall's fine restaurants. Top off the evening with a romantic movie and you will definitely have a date to remember--and for all the right reasons!
|2. Romance On a Budget|
What could be more romantic than a horse drawn carriage ride? The magic in the air, a canopy of stars above, the clatter of hoofs against the cobblestones, the night bathed in silver, and the scents of nature wafting through your senses… a perfect way to bring a dinner date to a close!
Horse & Carriage
Another classic idea is to enlist the help of Como Pedicab for a taste of romance of a different sort. Pedal powered rickshaws are the vessels of promise for tours of Como Park, with visits to around thirty historic venues and poetry recitals. Elegance and nostalgia all rolled into one!
|3. Just Cruising|
What is a date in St. Paul without a cruise down its pride and joy -the Mississippi River? Join Sternwheeler Riverboat cruises for a taste of history between downtown and Fort Snelling. From lunches, dinners, or Sunday brunches, there is a smorgasbord of choices awaiting you and yours.
While you are at it, you can travel back to the 1820s at Fort Snelling. The history museum and WWII display make for a melancholy reverie. Stop by the gift shop and treat your honey to a keepsake-of the past, as well as, the moment!
Finally, the Minnesota Centennial Showboat is another must-do…a summer ritual of traditional entertainment on board a captivating riverboat, reminiscent of the Victorian era. From musicals to melodramas, this is a sure showstopper.
|4. Stage It!|
For the theatre buffs, there isn't anything more romantic than this… cozying up together to watch a play, followed by a gourmet treat. The Great American History Theater showcases plays about Minnesota and the history of the melting pot.
Theatre In St Paul
On the other hand, there is the Park Square Theater, which aims at presenting enriching, soul stirring, live theater, from the contemporary to the classics. This theater has been responsible for bringing a renaissance to downtown St. Paul. Encompassed by a selection of bistros and happening nightlife, this is your one-stop-shop for an evening to remember.
|5. Life's a Gamble!|
If your date is the kind that gets a kick out of taking risks, then you know the cards you have been dealt, so… wing it! Canterbury Park Racetrack and Card Club will have you at the edge of your seat with horseracing and a 24-hour Card Club. To add to the thrill of a good gamble, the Treasure Island Resort and Casino raises the stakes with whirlpool suites, enchanting waterfalls in the heart of a tropical paradise, and a cruise liner.

So, whatever your poison, be it blackjack, bingo, or the slot machines, romancing could not get riskier than this!
