Whether you just started dating or you have been married for years, sparks are sure to fly on a date night in Miami! Check out these 5 cool date spots in Miami.
Kayak Through Oleta River State Park
Vibe: Laid back and chill
For the perfect afternoon date, get in a kayak or canoe, just the two of you and explore Oleta River State Park together. The peaceful water and mangrove trees set the stage for some intimate conversation and quality alone time. If this is starting to sound like the perfect proposal opportunity, be sure to book one of their sunset or full-moon kayak tours! Afterward, treat your sweetheart to a relaxed dinner at Mandolin Aegean Bistro, a 1940s bungalow-turned-restaurant. Fun fact to bring with you to dinner: the restaurant is a love story in and of itself, as it was founded by husband and wife team Ahmet Erkaya and Anastasia Koutsioukis and perfectly blends their Greek and Turkish cultures.
Party at The Basement
Vibe: Crazy and wild
Partying in Miami is a great way to get your date to let loose and be themselves! If you’re looking for a fun night out, head to The Basement. Hold hands with your hottie while you skate in a 2,000 square-foot indoor ice skating rink that comes alive with changing lights or go bowling in a four-lane bowling alley, complete with dramatic visual effects. Then let loose and dance the night away at the club with a drink (or two…) in hand.
Grab Coffee and Pizza at Alaska Coffee Roasting
Vibe: Casual and blind date-worthy
You wouldn’t think coffee and pizza go together, but we can’t think of a better combo for a first date with someone you’ve never met. Great for a blind date or just a casual get-to-know-you, Alaska Coffee Roasting is the place to split a made-from-scratch wood-fired pizza and treat your date to a delicious cup of coffee. The atmosphere is laid back and pressure-free, which should immediately put you both at ease.
Catch an Exciting Ride with Miami Speedboat Tours
Vibe: Thrilling and unforgettable
Want to really impress your date? There’s nothing more romantic than a Miami boat ride! Zip along the coast with the love of your life on a private boat tour of Miami as you take in the breathtaking skyline and crystal blue waters. Let Captain Mike entertain you with fascinating trivia about the city and the million-dollar celebrity mansions that line the bay. You may even see a dolphin or two! Want to pop the question? Book a private sunset tour, and let Mike know ahead of time so he can help ensure the mood is just right for your special moment. Whether it’s just you and your significant other or you’re on a double date, you can’t go wrong with a private boat tour of Miami.
Slip Away for an Overnight at One of Miami’s Airbnbs
Vibe: Intimate and private
Dads, Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Instead of just dinner and a gift, why not plan a romantic date night in Miami for your wife? You could book a night at one of Miami’s zen Airbnb’s and then visit some top tourist sites the next day. Three Airbnb’s that caught our eye include the Treehouse Canopy Room: Permaculture Farm, this spacious modern condo just steps from the beach, and this relaxing cottage in Coconut Grove.
