So, you want to impress your potential significant other. First impressions are important and the first date is the one that gets talked about at the wedding. Sure, you could go with something that perfectly replicates the Hollywood love story first date but that’s no fun. You want bold and daring, maybe something that says “We’re going to go on a lot of adventures together.”
I’ve been to a lot of great places around the Tri-Cities in the name of finding something pleasant and out of the ordinary. Something that says “I care about you enough to think outside the box.” I’ve compiled a list of destinations around town that I really feel will help you hit it off with someone early in your potential relationship. Maybe even show you something new altogether that you can do with your friends, not just a date!
Take a Break
Take a Break is a rage room in Tri-Cities where you can go to town on things such as glass bottles, old phones, computers, printers, and more. You’ll be pretty worn out after your appointment but you’ll have a lot to talk about when you’re done.
Monterosso’s Italian Restaurant
Monterosso’s is one of the most unique restaurants in all of the Tri-Cities, as it is a train car. The food is really good and the novelty of the setting will make you a winner in your date’s opinion.
In the Columbia Center Mall parking lot, Fast Track gives you an opportunity to race around in go-karts. It’s a ton of fun and you’ll have to decide if you let your date win.
Most Tri-Citians don’t get the chance to experience the tourism activities that the area has to offer. I never knew how special the Columbia River was until I got to go on a Water2Wine cruise.
Atomic Escape Rooms
See if your wits can beat your anxiety in an escape room. Put your trust in each other to make it out before time runs out. It’s a great bonding experience!
I hope this small list gives you some first-date ideas. Good luck!
