Inexpensive Date Ideas

Date Ideas That Won't Break the Bank

We're happy to present this story from one of our favorite sites, Fox News Magazine. Today, Matt Libassi shares date ideas on the cheap.

Between car payments, rent, food and Fluffie's cat litter, your hard earned paycheck gets stretched pretty darn far. And the last thing you want to skimp on is your love life. So how can you woo that special someone without breaking the bank? We've narrowed down some great date night ideas that won't make you look cheap (even though they are!)

For That Intellectual Outing: Donation-Only Museums

There are some great museums where you don't have to pay entrance fees, just a simple "donation." So dip into your pocket and pass out two ten dollar bills, it's roughly the price of going to the movies, your date will love the atmosphere, and you got yourself a practically free, fun-filled, cultured afternoon. For New York City dwellers, the Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum of Art will welcome the budget-conscious with open arms.

The Showstopper: Broadway Shows

Don't get overwhelmed by the seemingly high price tags of theater tickets. There are ways to beat the presumed tickets price, including the famous NYC TKTS booths and stand-by lines. Most theaters offer discounted limited view seats, or call lines (you get there about two hours before show time and get cheaper tickets). Just call the box office before you head to the show. Break a leg!

The Super Saver: Deal-a-Day Lists

Between LivingSocial, GiltCity and Amazon Local, the whole deal-a-day email listing are fantastic for saving on some special outings. From wine tours to hikes, casino day trips and beer tastings, you can save big on some special adventures. Just Google, sign up with an email, and let the savings roll in.

The Green-Thumbers: Farming Fun

From pick-your-own apples, to pick-your-own pumpkins, heck even pick-your-own peaches! Take a drive out to your local farm, grab a basket and get started. Most places offer a flat fee (as much as you can carry) so bring a coat with extra pockets!

Stop Your Wine-ing: Wine Tours

Cascading landscapes, fresh rural air, a crisp cool glass of your favorite wine. What could be better? We're talking wine tours! What's great about most wineries is you only pay for what you drink, often for a "flight" (4-5 glasses, sipping size) is roughly $20-40 bucks, and more often than not you can bring your own munchies. So plan on a little picnic with your partner, and make a day of it.

So there you have it my friends. Anything to add to our list?
