It sometimes feels like there are a million things going on every week that can get in the way of spending time with those you love. One of the best ways to combat this is by setting a designated date night. And Irvine is the perfect place for a night on the town with your significant other. If you’re struggling for ideas to keep the spark alive, check out one or more of these date night ideas in Irvine. Love is in the air in SoCal!

Moonlight Balloon Ride

The giant helium balloon at OC Great Park is one of the most thrilling experiences in Irvine. You soar 400 feet above the ground in a lighter than air contraption that makes you feel like you are an angel on a cloud! Combine that with the stars above and the twinkling lights of the city below, and you have a recipe for romance. Snuggle up with your sweetheart and take in the view!

Ice Skating

As every single Hallmark Christmas movie has shown, literally all of them, ice skating is the ideal way to spend time with your honey. You’re bundled up nice and warm. You hold hands for balance. You glide along as if in a dream. Suddenly, one of you starts to stumble. The other one catches them in their arms. Eyes meet, hearts melt…. Aaaand scene! Your fairytale romance ic in full swing. If you want to make it an extra special evening, you could do the balloon ride and skating in the same night with the rink at Great Park Ice.

An Evening of Comedy

If you both are fans of laughter, and let’s face it who isn’t, you can’t do better than a show at the world famous Irvine Improv. It may not seem like the most romantic way to spend your time, but the couple that laughs together stays together. You will be able to see your favorite comics live on stage and share an unforgettable experience that will bond you for life.
