Couples visiting Hollywood shouldn't have too much trouble filling their days. From the beautiful LA beaches to the movie studios and sightseeing, there's plenty to do around here. But sometimes, you need an idea or two for some truly unique daytime activities for couples. Here are four great options.
Every couple is different, and every couple likes doing something special. So, whether your game is throwing axes around or finding the cool places for Instagram pictures, here's a list that will get you both excited to be in Hollywood.
If your special someone has a little medieval warrior in them, treat them to a day of throwing axes around for fun! AxeVentures has locations all over California, including one on Vine Street.
Your axe-throwing experience is 75 minutes of iron-tossing fun. Start with some pointers from AxeVenture's "axe-cellent" coaches, then work on your aim and tally up your points. Imagine a game of darts, with a Lord of the Rings, vibe added for more adventure.
So axe throwing is fun, but it's probably not for everyone. If you're looking for a more relaxing time, head down to Echo Park in LA and rent a swan-shaped pedal boat. The swans are rented hourly per person, so you can make it quick or stay all day. Enjoy a quiet, romantic lake tour with great views of downtown and Dodger's Stadium. If you want to make more of an adventure out of it, your swan will give you a QR code, and you can play a fun Find and Seek game on your smartphone.
If the swan boat makes you snooze just thinking about it, how about an archery death match? How about giving zorbing a try? Zorbing is rolling around in a human-sized hamster ball. A zorb wheel allows you to stick together as a couple if you like.
Airballing LA has a variety of adventures for couples looking to enjoy an afternoon. Another option? How about a game of bubble soccer? Airballing brings the equipment to you, so you can set up pretty much anywhere you like.
Foodies rejoice! A gourmet cooking class is the ultimate date day activity, and Eatz has plenty of options. Upcoming highlights include Thai and Indian cuisine, plus a "sushi soiree." Their class selection is always rotating, so head over to their website and have a look before you book your class.
Check the Eatz calendar for upcoming classes. The company hosts both in-person and online classes. They also offer private courses for any size group. All courses are hosted by professional chefs and can be customized for your needs.
Hollywood is known for its glamor and sophistication, but we also know how to have fun. So throw a few axes, take a cooking class, and maybe even relax in a swan boat. You're in Hollywood, after all. Oh, and don't forget to wrap up the perfect date by checking out one of the best places to view the Hollywood sign.
