If you have been looking for a date idea other than the regular dinner and a movie routine, then the zoo might be worth considering. Almost everyone enjoys going to a zoo and looking at the animals. In addition, it's a lot more fun when you are with someone else. Keep reading to learn some tips on how to have a fun date at the zoo.
Things You'll Need
Laugh at the animals playing. They often play just like children, and you'll probably see toys placed in the habitats of many animals such as tigers and elephants.
Walk close together, and if you are comfortable holding hands, then do so. Just because you aren't sitting in a booth doesn't mean you can't be close.
Look for opportunities to be romantic. If you have stopped walking to look at an animal or exhibit, put your arm around her waist or lean your head on his shoulder. Pick out gifts at the gift shop for each other so you will have mementos of your day.
Buy a snack, ice cream or a drink and find a shady place to relax and take a break. You can use this opportunity to get to know each other a little more.
Take pictures and not just of the animals. Take pictures of each other in front of your favorite animals or exhibits. If you use a digital camera, you could even stop off at a photo-developing shop on the way home to get your pictures printed.
Tips & Warnings
- Make sure you have plenty of water. During summer time especially, it may be very hot at the zoo.
- Don't forget to follow all rules and respect the animals.
