With wedding season in full bloom, love is in the air in San Diego. And while attending weddings can certainly remind couples of the time that their romance first began, it takes more than a little cake and dancing to “Shout!” to keep the spark alive. But that’s where the unique excursions offered by Romantic Date Experiences can offer assistance in fanning that flame. Founded by Terri McFarland in 2010, RDE provides a catalog of one-of-a-kind luxury date experiences for the couple who loves a little adventure.
“Research has shown that couples who regularly engage in new experiences together are more likely to remain mentally and physically stimulated, thereby enhancing their relationship,” said Terri McFarland, founder of Romantic Date Experiences. “Our date experiences ease expectations and alleviate the pressures of planning a date so couples can enjoy the experience together to ultimately create a stronger, lasting bond.”
Without the task and stress of planning the date itself, couples can truly leave their cares behind when they embark on one of the 17 date experiences up the coast of California. For those San Diego sweethearts looking to commemorate a special anniversary, birthday, or to even celebrate an engagement or recent marriage with a once-in-a-lifetime trip, Romance Date Experiences offers a myriad options throughout the city. Samples include:
Do you Sea What I Sea?
Escorted in after hours for an intimate dining experience for two in front of a two-story, 70,000-gallon aquarium full of vibrant sea life creatures; live entertainment and a private guided tour through the beautiful and diverse Birch Aquarium.
A Wild West Adventure
Simplify with a visit to a secluded ranch in the El Monte River Valley; a deluxe western-style meal; fun and exciting activities including a romantic hay ride; lesson in riding a mechanical horse and calf roping; and a special live musical performance fireside.
