If you're dating, it's easy to get into a rut by going to the same restaurant or other location over and over.
Alpharetta, Roswell and all of North Fulton offer plenty of great date spots that will let you explore some new activities or locations, including these five:
20 Mansell Court East #275, Alpharetta. 678-805-2189. urbanescapegames.com.
Escape rooms give you and your date the chance to bond by working together to solve clues. For an Atlanta-themed room, try Urban Escape's CDC Lockdown, in which you have to stop the outbreak, find the antidote, and save the world. Other rooms include Jewel Heist, which challenges you to steal from the world's greatest thief, and Mr. Magic, where you'll be trying to puzzle your way through the magician's props to escape.
Each escape costs $28 plus tax.
