Whether you are in a relationship or hoping to be in one soon, Charlotte has plenty of fun date night options that can help you impress that special someone!

1.) Wine & Design

This is the perfect spot if you and your partner want to get crafty all while sipping on your favorite wine/beer. No need to be an expert painter either! Wine & Design sketches out what you’re going to be painting on a canvas so you can follow along easily with an instructor guiding you through your strokes!

2.) U.S. National Whitewater Center

For those couples who love to be outdoors, this is the date place for you! The U.S. National Whitewater Center has different activities like whitewater rafting, ziplines, flatwater kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, deep water solo, ropes courses, and many many more.

3.) Carowinds

Not every relationship will have bizarre ups and downs like a rollercoaster, but you still need your rollercoaster fix! Carowinds is the destination for the adrenaline junkie couples who love the thrill. With a total of 14 roller coasters, it ranks 5th in the world as having the most roller coasters in one park.

4.) Funny Bus Comedy City Tour

Maybe you two are new to the area, or maybe you’ve been in CLT for a while but you don’t know much about the history of the Queen City. Look no further! The Funny Bus Comedy City Tour is just the unique experience you’re looking for. Charlotte’s Funny Bus is an informational city bus tour and a BYOB comedy show all in one. The jokes are like what you’d hear in a comedy club, so the trip is an adult-only way to learn about North Carolina’s biggest city!

5.) Trivia Night

On a first date with someone and need something to break the ice? Test each other’s knowledge at trivia night! Charlotte has a ton of restaurants/bars that host trivia nights and Charlotte Agenda has a list of literally ALL of them here.

6.) Reed Gold Mine

Attention all adventurous couples! Reed Gold Mine is the site of the first documented gold find in the United States and they have different activities waiting for you to get your hands into, literally. You can go mining yourself, or go on a guided tour through the tunnels. How cool is that?!

7.) Candle Bar

What’s more romantic than making a delicious smelling candle for your loved one?! The Candle Bar experience is simple — choose a vessel, select a fragrance and then measure, mix and pour to create your own candle.
