While coffee or dinner dates are tried and true, your garden variety outing doesn’t always entice a would be Sugar Baby. Sometimes just a drink can seem like a cop out. If you really want to make an impression, come up with Sugar date ideas she’s too intrigued to reject.
This might seem like a place for kids, but museums are fascinating, low key, and often free. You can easily make conversation about the art or artifacts, all while gauging your chemistry. Some great spots include the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. or the Pinball Museum in Las Vegas.
Any experience where you get to learn something is great for bonding and feeling each other out. This might be best saved for a second date when you know what she might be interested in, like cooking or yoga.

Entertainment’s core is in theatre. Taking her to a show is a clear sign you like to have fun, and can be an instant icebreaker. You can even find free shows and tapings to attend with sites like FillASeat and On Camera Audiences which are generally low priced or free.
If you have a wild side, take her to a theme park or the like and show her your playful side. You two won’t have a chance to be bored with games and rides, making awkward silences a thing of the past. You can also show off your skills with a carnival game and win her a treasure to take home, then share a sticky cotton candy. How romantic.
The adventure of a theme park isn’t for everyone. Should you find yourself falling back into the rut of simply meeting for drinks, try out something interactive like Wine and Canvas. The name says it all, you sip wine and paint on a canvas, with the help of an actual painter. You’ll even get to take something home. Bonus points if you trade canvases.
Just outside your city could be a local vineyard waiting to be explored. Wine tasting is boojy enough to excite her, but casual enough that she’s still getting drunk. A win-win for all parties involved.
