Outdoor Date Ideas for Teens in Atlanta

  • Take a Tour of Public Art. One of our favorite date ideas for teenagers is to view public art, and most towns have at least a few murals. Find the story behind the art and tell your date as you take a selfie. A few Atlanta installations we like include:
  • Try BMX Biking. If you have fun riding Atlanta trails, up your game on one of the BMX tracks near Atlanta. As long as they don’t have an event, you are welcome to cycle on the track. There are two tracks in Cobb County – Noonday Park in Kennesaw and Wild Horse Park in Powder Springs.
  • Go on a Scavenger Hunt. Get to know each other by creating a scavenger hunt of your favorite places. Or look for scavenger hunts of your area. In Atlanta we love Cluetown Books. They have scavenger hunts for Piedmont Park, Oakland Cemetery, Decatur and more. Check them out.
  • Play Golf. One of my favorite fun date ideas for teens involves a little competition. Playing a full round of golf may be a bit much, but there is always fun at TopGolf, or playing mini golf. Stone Mountain Park has a great miniature golf course, and Puttshack has an indoor course that cannot be beat!
  • Horseback Riding. Looking for a cute date idea for teens then involve animals. A horseback ride through the woods is very romantic, and you can extend the date by petting the horses too. One of our favorite places to ride is Southern Cross Guest Ranch.
  • Look at Stars. Did you know there are several inexpensive or free places where you can look at the night sky together? This is one of my favorite cheap date ideas for teens.
  • Pick Something. Teen date ideas that involve doing something are my favorite, and we’ve always loved going to pick fruit. No matter the season, you can find something to pick.
  • Go Fish. Find a pond or other area of water near you and try your hand at fishing. In Atlanta a good place to fish is at the Carter Center where they have a stocked pond on site. If the fishing doesn’t work out, you can always check out the Carter Presidential Museum where you can see items given to the Carter’s from foreign dignitaries.
  • Head to the Farmers Market. Make a game of finding the strangest fruit or vegetable, or set a monetary limit and go shopping for weird items, then try them together. Here is a list of more than 21 farmers’ markets with a variety of items.
  • Search for Treasure. This is one of those good date ideas for teens that like to go exploring. Geocaching is a high tech scavenger hunt that you can do literally anywhere. Read more in our article on Geocaching.
  • Visit a Cemetery. This is one of those teen date ideas that are probably best for a third or fourth date. You may not think a cemetery would be a cool date, but Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta isn’t just any cemetery. You can download tours and learn about the ‘residents’ and their stories, plus they have some pretty cool special events throughout the year.
  • Visit a Graveyard. This graveyard is a bit different, it’s a school bus graveyard and it’s free. See our post for a video of what to expect. And if you like this, you may also like Old Car City – but there is an admission to visit here.
  • Window Shopping. Visit a small town in Georgia and explore the square. Try Milledgeville, Madison, Athens or Dahlonega for starters. There is usually a place to grab ice cream while you’re at it.

Indoor Date Ideas for Teens in Atlanta

  • Cook Something Delicious. Find a favorite family recipe and make it together. For a special occasion, take a cooking class together. In Atlanta you can find cooking classes at Cook’s Warehouse, Local Three and more.
  • Spend time on the Rink. Whether it’s an ice skating rink in the winter, or a roller rink in the summer, the couples skate has been one of the tried and true romantic date ideas for teenagers through the ages.
  • Volunteer Together. Good date ideas for teenagers can also be good for others too. Choose a charity or charity event and volunteer together. Here are some ideas of charitable organizations in Atlanta.
  • Find treasure at the Flea Market. This can be one of the most creative date ideas for teenagers. See who can find the strangest, oldest, most useful item. Here is a great list of flea markets to choose from.
  • Pet a Puppy. Need dating ideas for teens that don’t cost much? How about play with the puppies at the local humane society.
  • Go Flying. If you and your date are 17 or younger, you can schedule a free plane ride through the Experimental Aviation Association’s Young Eagles Program. You both may even qualify for a free flight lesson.
  • Plan an Escape. See how your date performs under pressure by trying to escape the room together. There are locations throughout the county. Here are a few Escape Rooms in the Atlanta area.
  • Game Night. Stay home, make your own pizza, and have a good time playing old-school games like Sorry! Rumicube, Dominos and more. If your parents don’t already have them, you can pick up super fun (and cheap) board games at Goodwill.
  • Immersive Experience. A new type of adventure has entered the Atlanta scene over the past couple of years — the immersive experience. Immersive experiences can be anything from entering a set-like atmosphere to feel like you’re a part of your favorite television show, to “walking through” and being surrounded by paintings by your favorite artists. There are always fun and new ones on the scene. Check out our list: 9+ Outstanding Immersive Experiences in Atlanta
