Get a Couples Massage

Here, choose from a variety of soothing massage options to get alongside your partner in a private suite. Massages are available in 50–80 minute sessions, and will leave you both well-rested and relaxed.

Shop or Window Shop

Whether you're looking for an outfit, a souvenir, a gift or an opportunity to stretch your legs, The Square Downtown West Palm Beach is a 72-acre experiential destination filled with fashion and accessory shops, home goods stores, health and wellness hubs, and spas—plus, it's walkable.

Charter a Yacht

Escape for the day, or at least get off land for a few hours. You can book a private charter with Delray Yacht Cruises (for you and more than 100 guests—or just you and your partner). There's also a more economic option, if you'd prefer, which is venturing on a public, two-hour cruise through the Intracoastal Waterway. On board, you'll be able to comfortably sightsee, nosh on food and drink adult beverages.

Residents and visitors don't just wear golf attire for fun—they dress to play. Find a public golf course, such as North Palm Beach Country Club, and book a tee time with your partner. Not up for a full game? Hit the driving range with your date for practice swings.

Grab a Beer at a Local Brewery

If beer makes your heart skip a beat, head to Mathews Brewing Co. for top-notch brews. Food trucks provide bites on site, but you can also order food delivery from local vendors. Hang out with your date in the taproom or the beer garden while sampling a variety of local sips, or plan to go on Saturday when the venue has live music to entertain the crowd.

Eat an Ice Cream Cone

There's always room for dessert. At Sloan's, split an ice cream sundae that comes in a sand pail or a real flower pot. While you're working your way through flavorful scoops, keep a lookout for the stars—a few famous faces have been known to visit from time to time.

Visit the Zoo

Koalas, jaguars and otters, oh my! For a zoo experience with a Florida twist, go see the animals at the Palm Beach Zoo. While you'll see animals you can find anywhere else, you and your partner will also be able to see wildlife (like flamingos and sloths) that you may not have seen before.

1301 Summit Boulevard, West Palm Beach, FL 33405

Play Games at an Arcade

Indulge your carefree inner child with arcade games, go-karts and laser tag at Fun Depot. Sure, you may have outgrown many of these pastimes as a teen, but you and your date can still be silly together. And that's fun, right?

Go on a Snorkeling Tour

For a grill and bar experience featuring classic fare, check out Galley, which has a romantic fire pit and al-fresco dining.

This isn't a white tablecloth kind of romantic place. But if you and your partner love Mexican food and delicious sippable beverages, this is a fun spot for a casual meal. If you're sandy from the beach, feel like keeping things low-key or just don't want to change out of your flip-flops, then this is the romantic date spot for you. (Hot tip: order the yucca fries.)
