So, regardless of whether you prefer a relaxing date on a boat, or swinging from the ceiling on a trapeze, this glorious city has a “couple activity” that is sure to fit your idea of a “good time.” And, on top of everything else – Seattle is really close to the water, so you and your sweetheart can bask in the sunlight; relax on the beach, and splash around in the sea. Aren’t you lucky to call such a cool place home? Yep, so enjoy it!
Listed below are some cool things you can do to invigorate your relationship:
Argosy Cruises & Seattle Ferry Services
Your world is busy – busy with work, busy with children, busy with life, am I right? When was the last time you and your significant other took time out just to relax and focus on one another? A long time? That is what I assumed. Well, it is probably a good idea to make some time for each other. How? Well, imagine spending a day with your partner on a cruise ship, smelling the seawater, watching the waves ripple, marveling at Seattle’s most beautiful sights, and feeling the Zen of life at sea.
Doesn’t that sound marvelous? Well, regardless of your budget, you can sail through Seattle on a date to remember. In fact, Argosy Cruises offers inexpensive cruises through Seattle’s historic harbor where you can witness the stunning views of the city’s skyline, Mt. Rainer, and the Space Needle. The best thing about this cruise line is that it offers both day and night cruises, so it can fit any schedule. Or, if you want something a little more romantic, purchase tickets from Seattle Ferry Services and spend a romantic evening on the sea in one of their historic ferry boats. The best thing about this activity is that it comes with a full waitstaff and an experienced captain. Spend the evening talking and enjoying all that Seattle has to offer. And, yes, you have been missing out, my friend.
You have probably lived in Seattle all your life, but have never visited the Space Needle. And, if you have already been to it, well, it’s probably been a long time. Well, if that is true, it is probably time for another visit – with fresh eyes. One of the best things about being a “couple” is that you get to look at things from a different perspective. You also get to discover new things and create new memories together. Truth-be-told, your partner is your best friend, even if it does not feel that way right now. If he or she wasn’t your number #1 friend, you wouldn’t be together right now, so get out there and start exploring – together. So ride over to the Space Needle and take a ride to the top, where you can look out from the observation deck.
Once at the top, gaze down at the sparkling city lights and exciting downtown activities. And, do you want to know something else that is really cool? Well, at approximately 500 feet high (the peak), you are able to see a 360 panoramic view of Seattle aka the Emerald City (called that because of its abundance of lush greenery). You are also able to gawk at the numerous Douglas Firs that cover the mountain ranges, the active waterfront of Elliot Bay, and the sparkling lights of downtown Seattle. So, grab your honey and partake in the magic that is found in Seattle.
They say the best way to a person’s heart is through his or her stomach, and in a way “they” are right. But, just to expand, the best way to ease pain and sadness is through a full stomach. When people are hungry, life seems harsher and problems seem bigger than they may actually be. Why? Well, because your mind can’t focus, if it isn’t getting the nutrients it needs to function at an optimal level, and because of that you are more prone to become irritable, angry, frustrated, and unforgiving. Kind of makes sense, doesn’t it? So, if you want to decrease the tension in your relationship and open the channels of communication up, go get something to eat. Why not?
Seattle is known as a “foodie” town, so partake in this activity like a true Seattleite. And, how lucky are you – Seattle has proven that it has some of the freshest, tastiest, and healthiest foods in the country. Wow! And guess what? Salumi Restaurant is an awesome way to enjoy this benefit. Why? Well, with its 5-course meals, served family-style, it is a good way to share – your food, your time, and your beliefs, opinions, and thoughts – you get the drift. So hunker down at Salumi’s irreplaceable storefront, you can get a variety of tasty foods, ranging from sliced salami and cured meats to sandwiches, soups, veggies, and pastas.
The Emerald City Trapeze Arts
Exercise is a good way to work off tension and stress, regardless of whether it is personal stress, work stress, or relationship stress. So, if you and your significant other are going through a “rough patch” and have almost stopped communicating, unless it is arguing, then, maybe you should try spending time at The Emerald City Trapeze Arts. This center offers exercise classes that are not only highly popular, but also highly fun.
So, try something different-new-exciting with your sweetheart and fly through the air on a trapeze. Never been on a trapeze before? That is A-Okay because The Emerald City Trapeze Arts offers classes to help newbies. And, truthfully, these classes add a bit of adventure to any date. So, once you have finished bounding through the air on your trapeze, try a pole dancing class. Yes, even you males. Why not? It’s fun and very different. Plus, it is one of the most popular ways to exercise. So get your sexy on and show each other what you are both made of!
Teatro Zinzanni & The Pink Door
Maybe, you and your partner have lost that “loving feeling,” well if so, it is ok; you can get it back with a little romance and some magic. What better place to spark the flames of love than Teatro Zinzanni? Why is that? Well, because this quirky place has been a staple of Seattle for years. And, it offers really cool dinner shows. Teatro Zinzanni combines the romance of a dinner theater with the exhilaration of a circus – all under one roof. What exactly is this place? Well, it is a tent. No, seriously it is, and it is one event that consists of two parts – circus and cabaret. But, what is so cool about this place is that is always magical. So, get dolled up and head out to this three-hour adventure, complete with a lip-smacking multi-course feast, ranging from filet mignon to lobster and fish.
Don’t forget to partake in the theater’s elegant adult beverages, ranging from Albert Bichot Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Reserve to Notre Dame de Cousignac Blanc. And, if you are looking for something a little more risqué to boost the intimacy in your relationship, head on over to The Pink Door restaurant. Why? Well, because this intimate venue offers a variety of burlesque, magic, opera, and cabaret shows. It also offers a sophisticated Italian menu, ranging from slow roasted beef “long rib” to Pappardelle al Ragu Bolognese. So, add adventure and intrigue to your relationship by spending it venturing outside of your comfort zone.
