Spring is the perfect season to explore Atlanta. And, what better way to explore the city than with a significant other?
Whether you’re going on a first date or treating a long-term lover to a night out, there is plenty to do now that the weather is warm.
From touring the city on a bicycle to enjoying a cocktail on a rooftop with the Atlanta skyline as your backdrop, here are 10 fun spring date suggestions:
Visit a rooftop bar or restaurant
Elevate the typical restaurant date by sitting on a roof and taking in a beautiful view.
Skylounge at the Glenn is open seven days a week and is covered by an awning so that you can enjoy the atmosphere even on cooler days. Enjoy cocktails and small plates and, on Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., listen to live music from local musicians.
There is a $5 cover charge for non hotel guests on Fridays and Saturdays starting at 7 p.m. Skylounge only accepts cash for the cover fee.
For a more casual date, visit the roof of Six Feet Under’s Grant Park or West Midtown locations. Order oysters, crab claws and draft beers with your date, while taking in the Atlanta skyline.
Order TopGolf Tea, aka long island iced tea with Tito’s handmade vodka, Bacardi Superior run, Bombay Sapphire gin and lemon ($9.50), and Top Golf Wings glazed in mango habanero, Asian sesame, buffalo or barbecue sauce ($10).
Then, compete with your date in the venue’s signature self-titled game and see who can earn more points by hitting the most balls into one of the targets.
If you’re looking to get outside and enjoy some mini golf, there are a few options for that around Atlanta, too.
“Fall in Love with Atlanta” and your date by participating in Bicycle Tours of Altanta’s popular tour. This three-hour, 8-mile exploration of Atlanta will take participants through Sweet Auburn, Inman Park, Little Five Points, Cabbage Town and Grant Park.
Bike past street art before biking through Oakland Cemetery. This tour costs $59 and includes a bike, helmet, water and snacks.

From Atlanta’s Airport District to Inman Park and Buckhead, several communities are hosting restaurant weeks within the next few months. Restaurants such as College Park’s Corner Grille and Buckhead’s Bistro Niko are offering prix-fixe menus for one week, ensuring that you and your date can experience great food on a budget.
Set out to discover a new restaurant within each community during the various restaurant weeks and create fun, new memories with your date.
Many of the festivals are free to attend, so you’d only have to pay for food and whatever else you buy while shopping at the festival.
This date could be a great opportunity to share your favorite things about the city you live in with your date or a fun opportunity to explore a new community together.
