A cooking class is a great way to bond and experience something new.

Who says date night has to only be at night. Day dates can be just as or even more fun than your typical dinner and a movie date night. A farmers market is a great way to have a fun and stress free date. Located at La Plaza Park at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway & Golden Lantern, The Dana Point Certified Farmers Market runs every Saturday from 9 AM to 1 PM. Not only will you be able to check out the local organic produce, you can also help support local businesses from various Dana Point vendors. This is also something you can enjoy as a family that the kids are sure to love as well!
Dinner is always going to be the classic go to move when it comes to dates. You really can’t go wrong. So for a fun twist, be sure to check out 180Blu at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. The outdoor patio bar and lounge offers gorgeous oceanfront views and tasty small plates and desserts. And Friday and Saturday nights they offer live music! Enjoy the romantic atmosphere set against a beautiful sunset you and your date are sure to love.
If all else fails, stay in, order some take out, cuddle up on the couch, and put on a movie. It’s a classic go to move that will never go out of style. “Netflix and Chill” as the kids say. Sometimes all you need is some quiet quality time together to make a date night feel special. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Plus this way no one has to dress up, and you can just lounge around and be comfortable!
