Looking for a new and exciting way to do something new and interactive on your next date? Get out of your "dinner and a movie" rut and plan a get physical date. Here are four activities that most of us usually don't think about when we plan to exercise that would also make a really fun date if done together. These ideas are all local and ideal for an upcoming weekend.
Get outside and enjoy the crisp, cool air and beautiful fall colors. The Silver Comet Trail is is a unique outside the perimeter Atlanta spot to walk, run, bike or rollerblade. The path is a quiet, paved, non-motorized trail and dogs are welcome. The 61 mile long trail starts in Smyrna (Cobb county) and ends at the Georgia/Alabama state line. At mile marker 0, the Mavell Road Trailhead is where to start. Take 1-285 to exit 15 South Cobb Drive and travel north two miles (Go to silvercometga.com for a map). It has nice restrooms, paved parking, picnic tables, water, emergency phone and dog waste bags. It's a good idea to wear comfortable shoes, bring a big water bottle and your cell phone. The trail bikers move fast so stay to the right and allow them to pass you. Keep the dog on a leash and be cautious at road crossings. This is a destination that gives you fitness level diversity. You'll want to come back to throughout the year to see the scenery changes each season.
A physically fit, adventure seeking couple would enjoy the challenge of testing the roles of "climber" and "belayer". As the climber climbs, the belayer takes the slack out of the rope so that if the climber slips or falls, the belayer can arrest the fall at that spot. Lots of opportunity to build trust with each other as you challenge your own strengh and mind. As you advance, try bouldering, climbing without a rope. The climber goes up about 15 feet then safely jumps or climbs down. Atlanta Rocks and Stone Summit are both located inside the perimeter and offer first timers introduction and technique classes.
Indoor All Year: There are several good options to ice skate whether winter, spring, summer or fall.
Outdoor During the Christmas Season We Recommend: Park Tavern at Piedmont Park is our top date night pick for ice skating. The lodgelike atmosphere at Park Tavern is the perfect setting to enjoy the combination of ice skating and dessert. Opening next week, the 3,200 foot ice rink will be located in the restaurant's heated Garden Tent with LED lighting and state-of-the art sound system and skate rentals. The rink is one of the largest in town, comfortably accommodating 150 people. The restaurant will be serving rinkside speciality drinks such as a Frozen Valhrona Hot Chocolate with the flavor profile of hot chocolate and the consistency of a milkshake. Traditional hot chocolate and themed martinis will also be served.
Less physical activity and more recreational, bowling is a fun date because it's a brainless way to unwind together. Atlanta bowling options are brightly lite, smoke-free facilities with spectacular light shows and full service bars. Comfortable lane side seating gives each couple their own space to enjoy some low key competition. Going out to eat or catching a cup of coffee are always great dates to get to know each other better. Sometimes, though, its better to share an experience.
At 729 feet, Amicalola Falls is the tallest cascading waterfall in the Southeast. Located an hour to an hour and a half (depends upon what part of Atlanta you live in) North of Atlanta in Dawsonville. The park features several trails, a lodge and ample space for a picnic before your hike.
The highlight of course are the falls which can be hiked to along a trail with the final portion up approximately 175 steps.If you're rally feeling energetic another 450+ steps will take you from the bottom of the falls to the top. Both below and above views are worth the effort
Each of these option is great way to have fun, spend quality time together and work some muscles.
