When it comes to A date, it’s much easier to skip some extra planning and do the typical outing of going to a restaurant and ordering a delicious meal. Although the ambiance may be nice, why not opt for something adventurous? 

Houston is loaded with places to go and things to do with your lover, just ask TikTok. Take a boat ride on a swan, knock some pins at an upscale bowling alley or enjoy a wonderful night under the stars. Small talk over a dinner sounds cliché when you can embark on exciting adventures throughout the city.
