In this series of posts, I’m sharing some of DH’s and my favorite date nights! Here are the first two posts in the series, in case you missed them:

Date Night Idea #1 – Build a Fort

Another of our favorite dates to date (see what I did there? haha) was an afternoon at the arcade.

Maybe that sounds a bit childish to you. It would to me, too, at first. But I have to admit, this was a really fun afternoon with my hubby.


The arcade we went to is inside a pizza restaurant. We didn’t get any pizza this time, but just got something to drink and hung out in the arcade. It was fun to let both our competitive sides and our childlikeness come out to play!

A few tips for an arcade date: 

  • If you can, go during the day so that it’s less likely there will be lots of kids around.
  • Decide beforehand on the amount of money you will spend on games. It’s easy to get carried away with those tokens! As an example, you could set a budget of $15 for game tokens and $10 for drinks and snacks. That will get you an afternoon of fun, laughter, and competition!
  • Don’t worry about what other people think. Loosen up and just have fun! Challenge your hubby to a ski-ball tournament or a best-two-out-of-three air hockey championship. Laughter is good for the soul…and the marriage.

What do you think? Would you take your significant other on an arcade date?
