Top Five Active Date Spots In Raleigh According To Raleigh Date Spots


If you enjoy biking, we highly suggest biking around Downtown Raleigh. If you do not have your own bike, no worries, because there are Citrix Cycle bike stations all around the city. Enjoy peacefully biking around the Capitol, passing by through Moore Square, and stopping along the way at the many coffee shops, restaurants, and shops. Biking downtown is a great first-date idea to get to know someone while exploring Raleigh sites. It’s a low-key way to start conversations while being active at the same time. 

The North Carolina Museum of Art is one of the most beautiful places here in Raleigh. This museum checks all the boxes for a fun-filled date. Get some exercise while walking around the art trails, have a picnic on the lawn, walk around the museum on a rainy day, or plan to see one of their Saturday outdoor movies this fall. It is a great solo date, romantic date, friend date, or family date. You cannot go wrong planning a date here. 

Bring out your competitive side on a date at Drive Shack. This is a great way to keep your date casual and fun. At Drive Shack, you can play golf while enjoying food and drinks. We went on a date here with a group of friends and had the best time. We cannot wait to have another date here in the future. 

It is not often you find an arcade and bar in the same place. Boxcar Bar + Arcade in Downtown Raleigh is a great weekend date idea. If you enjoy high-energy, fast-paced dates, this is the place for you. Have a drink while playing games with the people you love. 

We loved exploring these date spots and we hope you can enjoy them too. Feel free to send us a message on Instagram if you have any questions or want any more specific date ideas. We hope you have fun on your next active date!
