Three Ideas for a Fun Date Night in Cape Coral

Jan 10, 2018 01:35AM ● Published by Kevin

There are many reasons to get out and about in Cape Coral, especially since there are so many fun things to do, right here in your own backyard. You could be looking to change up the routine with your spouse or longtime partner, or you could be involved in a newly budding relationship and want to truly impress. Creating a new, exciting, perfect date night experience can be a little bit tricky, especially if you want it to be one of a kind.

Say no more! We've compiled a few date night ideas to consider for you, regardless of your situation. Check these out, and make sure you tell us how it went in the comments below!

Date 1: Paint Night

If you're looking to get a bit arty with your significant other, say no more! We've got the perfect date night for you. Paint Nights have been sweeping the country for a few years now and it's a great way to get to bond with someone. It's also a perfect date idea if you're still getting to know somebody. 

The Painted Conch offers almost daily Paint Nights, so be sure to check their schedule to see what theme you'd like to go for. You can select an "Easy" option with a simpler design, or something more advanced if you're looking to take your painting to the next level. 

Either before or after, you're bound to have an appetite. Head to Dante's Coal Fired Pizza to commiserate your artistic talents, or lack thereof. 


Paint Night at The Painted Conch - start May 11 2017 0630PM

Head to the Downtown Farmers Market and select your favorite local items to fill up your picnic basket. Once you've gotten all the local goodies you need, hop in the car and drive to Rotary Park Environmental Center where there is plenty of beauty to appreciate. 

Once you've finished picnicking, pack up and stroll through the park. There are fun things to do and see, such as the Tom Allen Memorial Butterfly House, donated and cared for by the Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife. You can view all the beautiful butterflies and plants from the outside of the butterfly house every day and you can pick up information on butterflies and how to attract them to your yard.
