Check out South Florida Introduction’s top seven date spots below. We’re partial to number six ourselves, but they’re all guaranteed to keep a smile on your date’s face.
Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens
Located in Delray Beach, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens are a one-of-a-kind date experience. Known as the Gardens of the Drops of Dew, this stunning collection of glades, trees, waterfalls, zen rocks, rose-covered tunnels, and bridges will be your favorite spot for a date or a late afternoon stroll in no time. This is for the people who are looking for a slightly more cultural and mature experience.
Everyone in South Florida knows Mizner Park. It’s Boca Raton’s best kept secret, that isn’t too secret at all. This outdoor shopping center and restaurant hub has everything from chic boutiques to luxury jewelers. Some of our personal favorites in Mizner include: francesca’s, Kapow Asian Noodle Bar, Sloan’s and Sur La Table.
The Deerfield Beach Pier
The full name of this Deerfield Beach landmark is actually the International Fishing Pier at Deerfield Beach. Don’t let the name fool you, though. You don’t have to fish to come here. It’s a great place to take a stroll and watch the sun set over the ocean. The peaceful lapping of the waves is sure to make it a night to remember. If you are looking for a calmer sort of evening, this may be the place to go.
The Blind Monk
If you are in the mood for wine and fine conversation, you will not find many places better than the Blind Monk in West Palm Beach. This place is known for its intimacy, and its coziness. You can impress your date with your wine knowledge here. If they are not impressed by your sommelier skills, you can try to make them smile with your knowledge of cheeses.
Due to this place’s size, people go there for the atmosphere. The dim light of the restaurant focuses your attention on the delicious meal and the words of the person in front of you. If you really want to get to know someone, this is a fantastic choice.
The Funky Buddha in Oakland Park
The Funky Buddha headquarters, located in Oakland Park, is one of South Florida’s best beer spots. Boasting not only unique microbrews of international acclaim, and fun events nightly, the Buddha is also involved with many Broward-based charities. You can feel good about the money you spend on your date there. It’s going to a good cause.
This is not some raucous bar. The crowd here is usually on the more sophisticated side. That is not to say that people are not letting their hair down. We have found that this place attracts middle-aged professionals from all around South Florida.
Any list of the hottest date spots in South Florida wouldn’t be complete without talking about Las Olas. This is the spot in this area. Where else are you going to find restaurants like American Social next to eco-friendly boutiques like Alex and Ani? But that’s not even the best part. What is, you ask? You can stroll down the avenue and people watch, having the time of your life, while sipping on a unique cocktail. This sounds like a good date night to us.
