How many times have you and your loved one eaten a delicious dinner only to fall asleep on the couch in front of the television? While snuggling on the couch and watching a movie can make for a romantic date, it might be fun to shake things up a bit and try a new activity. What new pursuit you choose will depend on factors like your budget or the length of your relationship.

If you're dreaming big, you could fly to a romantic city like Paris or Venice and enjoy an enchanting locale, but there are plenty of other options that don't require frequent flyer miles. From cornfield mazes to comedy clubs and from museums to mini golf, your hometown likely offers tons of entertaining things you've never gotten around to trying. Cut loose at a carnival, take a turn on the dance floor or sing a duet with your sweetheart at karaoke. Try out that swanky wine bar or cute sweet shop that you're always driving by. And if you'd rather stay at home, then you might consider ideas such as a bubble bath or a backyard star-gazing adventure. The options are limitless -- the important thing is to spend some quality time together, and breaking loose of the same old routine instantly makes memories.
