3 Fun Ideas for a Unique Houston Date Night

Want to break out of the old dinner-and-a-movie date night routine? Houston offers a lot of fun ways to shake things up. Here are three great ideas for a unique Houston date night that are anything but ho-hum.

Indoor Skydiving

For a truly daring and unique Houston date night out that does not require actually jumping out of a plane, try indoor skydiving at iFLY. Made possible by a vertical wind tunnel, iFLY allows participants to experience the feeling of a skydive freefall while floating on a column of air. Flight Packages include training, gear, and flight time with an instructor to assist you in the wind tunnel. Photos and videos of your experience are available to purchase after your flight. This is one date night that you won’t soon forget!

After Dark at the Houston Zoo

Though the zoo is often a destination for family fun, this adults-only evening gives grown-ups an opportunity to explore the zoo on their own. Held on the third Thursday of the month through July, each “After Dark” event is uniquely themed. The June 21st event will be an elegant evening by the reflection pool. Guests are encouraged to wear all white for the event, which will feature live jazz performances and showcase aquatic animals. Bring your boots on July 19th for a country-style hoedown at Masihara Pavilion, with a live band, dancing, mechanical bull rides, and visits from featured animals. Tickets for both events include the opportunity to visit zoo exhibits for 2 hours prior to the party. After Dark is a strictly adult evening out, and guests must be 21 and over.

Learn to Tango

The sultry tango is known as one of the world’s most romantic dances. Learn the basics of the Argentine dance on Wednesday nights through August 29th at Be In Tango. The beginner classes are non-linear, meaning that you can jump in at any time, and each include introductions to the music, steps, and specifics of this partner dance. The goal of the classes is to prepare you to participate in your first milonga or tango party. Whether you choose to participate in a full class cycle of six weeks or just drop in for a one-night class, learning this passionate dance is a definite date night thrill.

So whether you’re craving an adventurous night out or just want a little something different, a unique Houston date night can be in your cards. Our community at Lincoln Galleria is located close to these unique outings as well as all the upscale dining and shops that Uptown has to offer.
