1. Catch a spring training baseball game.
Can’t beat $1 hotdog night while watching the Detroit Tigers play in spring training.
2. Visit a used book store.
You can start a book club for just the two of you. Narnia, anyone? 🦁
3. Play a round of mini golf.
You can play the entire course at Family Fun Center! Make sure to keep score. Loser buys the winner dessert.
4. Go to a museum you’ve never been to before.
You can visit Polk Museum of Art for free or for a donation or venture out of Lakeland to experience new museums together.
5. Go to a restaurant and order for each other.
Remember, you’re still in a relationship – be kind and order something delicious that they might not pick for themselves!
6. See a drive-in movie.
Head to the Silver Moon Drive-In and catch a double feature!
7. Paint pottery.
You can pick your favorite pieces and paint them at PicassoZ Art Cafe.
8. Cook from a cook book.
Look through a cook book and make a fancy meal you’ve always wanted to make.
9. Skate together.
10. Pizza & board games.
May the odds be in your favor. 😁
