If you’re looking for a fun and active date idea, head into the city for a new adventure! Instead of doing the same old thing — shopping followed by dinner and a movie — change it up. A scavenger hunt is the perfect way to get to know your hometown even more. To turn this relationship advice into a competition, invite your friends and their partners to join you.

Look online for lists of items to search for during your scavenger hunt. Sites like Pinterest have great ideas that are catered to specific cities. If you want to get even more creative, you can combine different lists and make your own. You could even focus on a specific theme, like cultural activities or historical spots.

On the day of the event, assign certain items from the list to each couple. For this weekend date idea, distribute the lists and make sure each couple has a camera to document their finds. To give you and your partner an advantage, make sure you have a GPS and map. To be even more prepared, bring extra batteries for your camera and portable chargers for your phones in case of emergencies. Be sure to pick a place and time to meet up in a few hours too!

During your time in the city, don’t just complete everything on your list; create memories too. Stop and take pictures together at fun areas around town. Hold hands and reminisce about your relationship and love. Once the hunt is over and you’ve met back up with your friends, share your findings over dinner and drinks.
