5 Cheap Date Ideas

Posted by Susie Callahan on Wed, Jun 17, 2015

Wining and dining can get pricey. Check out these 5 cheap date ideas, thanks to Thrillist,  that are sure to  impress without busting your budget:

1. Soak up some culture at a free museum night

"Each of Boston’s many museums offers free or reduced admission at least one night a week. Plan accordingly and you’ll have cash left for drinks and dinner afterward. Try the MFA on a Wednesday from 4-9:45pm or the ICA on a Thursday between 5-9pm. If you’d prefer a more playful experience and a) aren't bothered by parents giving you the evil eye; or b) worried that you might be sending the wrong signal about moving too fast, the Boston Children’s Museum is only $1 on Fridays from 5-9pm. "

2. Take advantage of Free Fun Fridays

"The Highland Street Foundation is offering free access to over 70 museums and other cultural venues each Friday for 10 weeks this summer. There is no excuse not to visit SOMETHING."

3. Attend a wine tasting

"Get your grape on for ZERO dollars at one of the Hub’s many free tasting nights. Ball Square Fine Wines, Coolidge Corner Wine and Spirits, and Central Bottle host some of the most popular ones."

4. Walk the Boston Harbor

"The Boston Harborwalk offers a free, downloadable audio tour that will take you along the water and scenic areas downtown. Follow along with your date, or smartly do it a few days in advance and impress her with your extensive knowledge of the Hub's seafaring history. There are also a handful of pay-what-you-like walking tours available from Free Tours by Foot that cover various neighborhoods around town."

5. Take a night dip at the Colonnade rooftop pool

"The Colonnade is home to the city’s only outdoor rooftop pool, which sits 12 stories over Back Bay and costs $20 or less every day after 5pm. It’s one of the only places you can swim while gazing at the Boston skyline, and you won’t break the bank if you go at night."
