Dating is easier in some ways in the digital age, but harder in others. On the one hand, technology may make it easier to connect with people, yet on the other hand, if you’re so accustomed to living online, you’re not sure where to go on your date in the real world. Well, if you’re anywhere in the vicinity of Tallahassee, you have a fantastic venue for dating: Cascades Park.
Here are three romantic reasons to bring your date here, whether it’s your first or fifth or fiftieth time out together.
1. The Water Fountain
Called The Imagination Fountain, this interactive aquatic adventure is both fun and beautiful, even for grownups. Bring your date in the evening and enjoy the beautiful light show, or stop by on a warm Florida afternoon for lunch together and act like kids, running in and out of the water sprays and cooling off. If either or both of you have children, the Fountain is a great locale to hook up and see how everyone hits it off with a few splashes and giggles.
2. The Amphitheater
Music is a universal language, and it can also be the language of love. Nearly everyone is into one genre or another, making the Amphitheater the perfect place for a first date, not simply to enjoy the tunes, but to give yourselves a break from those awkward pauses that can happen before you really get to know each other.
3. The Trails
Once you and your potential significant other do know each other a little better, go for a languid, leisurely stroll on over two-and-a-half miles of trails at Cascades Park. You could pack a lunch, bring your pooches or take a healthy jog. The setting is appropriate for something casual, romantic or even spectacularly exciting, such as talking about taking the relationship to the next level.
Dating in the digital age should be limited to making connections, without spending too much time on devices. In fact, you’re going to enjoy yourselves so much at Cascades Park, you might even think about leaving your cell phones at home, for once.
