A first date can be awkward or amazing, depending on how well you plan it! Here are five great first date ideas in the Benbrook area to guarantee a good time.
Fort Worth Zoo
The problem with taking a date to the movies is that you can’t talk and get to know each other. The zoo provides the ideal spot to talk as much as you want, while providing plenty of subject matter to discuss if there is a lull in the conversation. Feeling nervous? Focus the conversation on cute animals doing adorable things.
Stockyards Ghost Tours
It’s a proven fact that spooky vibes encourage hand holding. Instead of watching a scary movie, take a ghost tour of the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards. Learn about local paranormal activity and the Wild West, and take a nice walk at the same time.
Fort Worth Botanic Garden
Plan a nice day surrounded by flowers and the Texas sun at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. You and your date can explore the gorgeously landscaped gardens and courtyard, and chow down outdoors at the Rock Springs Cafe. The best part is you don’t have to buy flowers, since you’ll already be spending the day looking at a bunch.
Four Day Weekend
Worried about keeping the laughs flowing? If your date has a good sense of humor, take them to see an improv comedy show at Four Day Weekend. Voted the Best in DFW, you know you’ll at least see a great show, even if your date is a dud.
Encourage a bit of competition by taking your date to Main Event. Grab a quick bite and a cocktail, and then hit the arcade games. When your date is busy laughing at your abysmal pinball skills, they might not notice you aren’t very funny.
