  1. Downtown Canal Walk

Day or night, the Downtown Canal Walk is a beautiful place to take your date. The two of you can hold hands as you stroll along this 3-mile loop and take in the gorgeous sights of the surrounding city. You don’t have to take your date all the way to Venice for a romantic gondola ride. Instead, you can enjoy a public or private gondola ride down the canal with Old World Gondoliers. Or, if you prefer your own transportation, you can rent one of the kayaks or pedal boats.

  1. Indianapolis Art Center

If you and your partner are feeling a little creative, check out some of the excellent art classes available at the Indianapolis Art Center. Sign up for one of the Make It Take It classes and you’ll each get to leave with a finished product. These casual two-hour classes are taught by one of the talented instructors and give you a chance to work with a variety of mediums. Some of the popular classes include glass paperweights, beer flights, and acrylic pour paintings.

  1. Holcomb Observatory and Planetarium

You and your date can enjoy a romantic evening of gazing at the stars when you visit Holcomb Observatory and Planetarium. Located on the Butler University campus, this is one of the largest public observatories in the world. The tour starts with a planetarium and star show that will help you learn more about the celestial wonders out there. Weather permitting, you will then have an opportunity to look through the telescope to see the moon, planets, stars, and more.

  1. Fountain Square Theatre

The historic Fountain Square Theatre, near downtown Indianapolis, offers a one-stop spot for all your date night fun. If you’re hungry, check out Imbibe Lobby Bar for burgers, barbecue sandwiches, pizza, and craft beer. When you’re looking for some excitement, the Imbibe Game Room has dartboards, billiard tables, air hockey, and more. For something different, go to Atomic Bowl Duckpin to try your hand at duckpin bowling. Or you can head up to the Rooftop Garden Cocktail Lounge to order a bottle of wine, kick back, and take in spectacular views of the city.

  1. New Day Craft

If you’re interested in enjoying some drinks with your date, but you don’t want to go to a bar, New Day Craft has a hip and modern tasting room in Historic Fountain Square that offers flights of some of its popular craft meads and hard ciders. You can try some of the year-round offerings, like the Gold Rush hard cider and Washington’s Folly cherry mead, or sample some of the seasonal specialties.

You’ll be able to put together a romantic date night your partner will never forget when you choose some of these outstanding date night activities in Indianapolis.
