San Francisco is often referred to as the cultural center of Northern California. It is home to countless gourmet restaurants, interesting museums, Broadway shows and amazing architecture—there’s no shortage of impressive places to take your date in this city. If you’re looking for a more casual, carefree experience, however, check out some of these date ideas in the San Francisco and Rincon Hill areas.
Get away from the crowds in the city and enjoy the scenic and secluded waters of Stow Lake. Sure, row boats are romantic, but they also border on rom-com cheesy. Rent a pedal boat to up the fun factor and leave your hands free to hold a cold drink or point out turtles or anything else along the way. Pack some snacks for yourself, and some for the ducks too (cracked corn or rice are excellent choices for your feathered friends). Afterwards, grab a bite to eat at nearby Koo Sushi.
You don’t have to knock one out of AT&T Park to make a splash on this date. Behind the scenes tours always offer a unique and interesting experience, and this one is no different. On the AT&T Park tour, you get to walk across the field, sit in the dugout and tour the visitor’s clubhouse and batting cage.
Whether you prefer to cook up something together in the contemporary kitchen in your luxury apartment in San Francisco or taking a cooking class together, this is a recipe for romance. It’s a great way to get to know each other better during the early months of dating, learn how to work together and have a great time in the process. So trade your little black dress for a little black apron and unleash your culinary creativity. Oh, and don’t forget desert.
