Like the idea of a secret but not looking for a bar? Try finding the hidden swings in La Jolla which offer amazing views of our coastline. 

2. Take a cruise

San Diego offers lots of day cruise options so you can choose one that works for you. One option is to simply take the ferry from downtown to Coronado, enjoy some of the activities around there then take the ferry back. You could also get a little classy with a dinner cruise.

3. Go out dancing

Dancing is a great date night activity for anyone who is looking for both romance and excitement at the same time. Try a Salsa Under The Stars event, go to one of the many dance clubs in San Diego, or maybe even take a class!

4. Give Axe Throwing a try!

Axe Thro Co is a super fun place for a date night. Our coaches will help you become awesome axe-throwers in no time, then you will have the chance to play a variety of axe throwing games. Come by and throw axes for an hour, or we also have pool tables if you want to split your time between axe throwing and pool. 

We are conveniently located in central San Diego. You can walk in during our open hours or reserve a time.

5. Visit a winery or brewery

The San Diego area offers several wineries and a whole bunch of breweries. If you like trying new things then you can certainly find some beers or wines that you’ve never tried before and are made locally.

6. Have some fun at a game bar

Staying at home playing video games wouldn’t make a great date. However, play video games out and about in the city while having some drinks and now we’re talking! Coin-op, Brewski’s, Sidecar… these are just a few of the places in San Diego where that is possible. 

Another option is The Hive right next door to Axe Thro Co! Give us a call to ask about a discount if you’re interested in doing both.

7. Tour La Jolla Cove

La Jolla Cove is one of the more popular tourist attractions in San Diego, but there are also many ways you can enjoy it as a local. Get some ideas here of how you can experience one of the treasures in America’s Finest City.

8. Stroll through Balboa Park 

From the gardens to the architecture, this is a beautiful place to spend a day or evening with your date. You can enjoy trails, museums, various activities and shows – you will have no trouble finding things to do in Balboa Park.

9. Check out a local comedy club

Everybody loves to laugh. You can see shows almost any night of the week at one of the several comedy clubs in San Diego. You’ll be able to find local comedians trying out material or if you plan in advance you can likely get tickets to see your favorite famous comedian.

10. Watch a San Diego sports team

There are some awesome teams in San Diego competing in various different sports, both college and professional. Both SDSU and USD have awesome basketball teams. You can catch the Padres downtown at Petco Park. You can also see the Gulls play hockey, and soccer fans have 2 teams to choose from in Loyal SC and the Sockers. Those are just some of the many options.
