Creative Date Ideas: Go to a Zoo
Get grandma to take the kids for the afternoon and hit your local zoo for a daytime date. It's a fun, creative date idea that'll give you the chance to have alone-time and scarf some cheesy zoo snacks! And, honestly, who wouldn't want to spend an entire afternoon squeeing over cutesy animals? Zoos host tons of events—from adorable animal weddings to large-scale performances—so check out your local zoo's calendar for upcoming shindigs.
Don't have a zoo nearby? No problem! Lots of farms are open to visitors, and if you're feelin' a little bit of manual labor, volunteers. Trust us—pigs and cows are just as cute as seals and monkeys! Maybe just a teensy bit stinkier.
So, the next time you're in the market for a creative date, draw some inspiration from the explosion of toys, sippy cups and screaming kids in your living room, and go to a zoo. And, hey, if you start to miss the kids, just head over to the monkey habitats—they poop and scream a lot, too.
