This nursery open house is a cute way to get out of the house, see some nature, and buy something that you both love. Getting a plant is right up there with getting a pet. With a lot of attention and care, it’ll only grow with you.

Go on a Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunt is a date like you’ve never had before. A clever way to see more of the city, it guides you along the sights while searching for clues. It’s fun, mysterious and informative all in one.

Stay a Night in a Hotel

A night at a hotel brings a little mystery to your hometown. A clean room and a different view goes a long way in seeing the city with a fresh set of eyes.

Visit a Nature Center

Going to the zoo is a nice way to make conversation while supporting animal conservation.

Metro Detroit has many amazing museums including the MOCAD and the DIA. An art museum is a great way to have some deeper conversations while enjoying different art styles and interactive mediums.

Go Geocaching

Geo-caching is a fun local date for those looking for a bit of adventure. By hiding little trinkets in strange spots around town, you can see who had found the items before you — and leave something of your own behind.
