It may feel like Phoenix outside, but this is Atlanta – a place that offers many options in date destinations. We talked earlier this week about having solid date plans for date night and we are fortunate to take advantage of all Atlanta has to offer! We have activities and locations that are ideal for night dates, daytime dates, lazy dates, adventurous dates…you get the idea.
Our good friends at HowAboutWe.com revealed that Atlanta daters have particular locations that we like to frequent on dates:
Top 10 Summer Date Spots:
1. Piedmont Park
2. High Museum of Art
3. The Tabernacle
4. Museum of Design Atlanta
5. Turner Field
6. Atlantic Station
7. SweetWater Brewing Company
8. Georgia Aquarium
9. Atlanta Symphony Hall
10. Fontaine’s Oyster House
I have only been to 1,2, 3 and 4 on a date. All really fun and memorable outings, and I plan to get to the remaining soon! The destinations helped, but I suspect that I was deeply distracted by my date. When you ask out the right people, your date destination becomes the cherry on top of the already iced cake, am I right??
There were also a few other notable facts about dating in Atlanta during the summer:
The dating site also uncovered the following in their research of Atlanta’s Summer Dating Trends:
-Atlanta singles love going to sporting events when summer time rolls around. Specifically, heading to a Braves game. Atlanta’s sport of choice, with 1 in 4 dates in the “play” category involving Turner Field.
-Another way Atlanta singles get their hearts pumping? Hiking. Hiking dates are suggested 2x more often during the summer.
-Volunteering date ideas are suggested 10% more often in Atlanta during the summer.
-Looking for something a little more unique? Hot air balloon dates also trended throughout June.
-Dates involving Brazilian cuisine are suggested 26% more often during the summer, a departure from winter’s favorite: French fare.
I have done the volunteering date idea and I was pleasantly surprised at my date’s willingness to go and not complain. I think you can tell a lot about a person when you observe them helping others.
Do you change your dating habits in the summer? Do you go to different places and do different things?
