Where: The zoo
Why: Plenty of conversations starters are sure to keep the date flowing. Also, walking around and looking at exhibits gives you the opportunity to get flirty with your body language.
Where: A street fair
Why: Weaving in and out of booths is a great way to see what you have in common. You get to show lots of personality and have fun, too, whether you're trying on sunglasses or indulging in deep-fried Oreos for the first time.
Where: Wine bars
Why: Wine bars inject an instant romantic-yet-casual ambiance into any date, providing the perfect, quiet atmosphere in which to get to know each other better. Besides, getting to know each other over a glass of wine is much more romantic than over beers at a pub.
Where: Mini golf
Why: An activity gives you a common goal on a date. You can show off with a hole in one, or get some pointers on your swing from your partner. A game of mini golf is quick, and if things go well, you can enjoy a lemonade together afterward.
Where: A place with a view
Why: Whether it's from a rooftop hangout or a top-floor lounge, a view always makes a first date feel luxe. Both environments typically have casual seating areas, as well. Choose a couch rather than a table so you can send (and receive) a few messages via good body language.
