Things to Do for Couples in Beaumont
Make Every Night Date Night
If you’re looking for unique date activities to explore with your partner, Beaumont has plenty of things to do for fun day dates, romantic nights out on the town, or an intimate weekend for two. Here are some suggestions:
Powered by Top Golf technology, 5 Under Golf Center is a high-tech gaming facility that has much more than just virtual golf. Their swing suites are the ultimate date night to challenge your partner to a playful round. You set the difficulty and pick your game from zombie dodgeball and baseball to computer-simulated carnival games. They have a full kitchen and bar and frequently have live music. But if you prefer to go old school, Colorado Canyon’s putt putt, laser tag, and arcade are another way to get competitive while acting like kids again.
Go for a Swamp Safari
Cuddle up and hold on tight because for the adrenaline junkies, an airboat ride is the best way to get to know the winged, slimy, and four-footed locals. Outfitters like Dragon Lady and Swamp & River Tours can take you flying through the bayou on an exciting and informative backwater eco-tour. You’ll learn about the native wildlife while getting a lesson on the biodiversity and habitat of our area.
Swim, Feed and Hold Baby Gators
For the adventurous couples looking for that “as seen on TV” moment, Gator Country is part rescue facility, part animal adventure park full of entertainment and slapstick comedy. Home to over 450 reptiles, including two of the largest alligators in captivity, you can get hands-on with the babies and interact with a number of other animals from cuddly bunnies to scaly snakes. It makes for some memorable photos, to say the least.
Make it a Classic Movie Night
An elevated version of the stereotypical movie date, the Jefferson Theater is both a classy and cheap date night. With tickets just $5 every Friday, the opulent old theater has a rotating schedule of fan favorites and cult classics that spans every genre from drama to comedy. And yes, they sell alcohol in the theater.
Sip and Swirl in the Vineyard
Have you ever heard of a winery on a bayou? Enjoy flights of wine, sangria, and wine shots overlooking the wines at Free State Cellars, aka. the Devil's Playground. Each varietal has some significance and tie to the area so you'll get a history lesson as you sip and swirl.
Another classic date activity, hit the lanes at Crossroads Bowling Center or Star Bowling Bar & Grill, where you can play the pins while feasting on fair food like funnel cakes, meat on a stick, and frozen cocktails.
Go Retro at the Roller Rink
For the ‘90s and ‘80s babies, roller skating is an ode to our childhood. At Manning’s Texas on Wheels, spin, glide, and skate into each other’s arms and hearts. Check the weekly schedule because they regularly have special skate nights for cosmic glow skates and NERF Wars to really set the tone for romance.
Canoe or Kayak the Big Thicket
For the couples who like to get active together, the Big Thicket is a great place to work up a sweat. Kayaks and canoes can be rented from Big Thicket Outfitters, who will provide everything you need to explore the bayou. There are several loops and paddling trails to follow, but if you’d prefer to stay dry, the hiking and biking trails are also popular excursions.
Embrace your inner cowboy or cowgirl on a trail ride at Tyrrell Park Stables. Beaumont’s premier equestrian center, whether you’re a natural at riding or a newbie, the staff is there to help guide you and bond with your stallion the whole way.
Hit up the Botanical Gardens
A totally free outing, meander through the beautiful landscaping of the Beaumont Botanical Gardens and get out of the friend zone on a romantic stroll down the “Friendship Walk.” You can stop to feed the koi fish, admire the flora and fauna, and snap some cute couple shots amongst the flowerbeds. Shangri La Botanical Gardens is another gorgeous nature reprieve in nearby Orange.
Paint and Sip
Let your artistic sides shine at a BYO painting class. You can create masterpieces for each other or make some colorful memories painting with your partner. For something even more unique, they also pair couple’s classes with trivia or paint your pet night.
Have a Spa-aah Day
If you need some R&R or personal pampering, the Meridian is just one of the area's best day spas. The ultimate retreat and reprieve to treat yourselves, opt for a couple’s massage or facial in and feel world’s away from reality.
Take a Hike
Looking to stretch your legs? Explore the 40+ miles of trails at the Big Thicket. There's everything from leisurely nature walks to more intense endurance challenges.
Play Wine-o Bingo
At Cotton Creek Winery, pair a wine tasting with fun and games. Everything is locally made and available by the glass or bottle to sip and swirl over vino and charcuterie.
See the Symphony, Opera or Ballet
Get dressed up for a fanciful night at the Julie Rogers Theatre. The ultimate cultural excursion, a night of highbrow entertainment may be just what the doctor ordered if you crave a night out on the town.
Find Your New Favorite Band
7 Oaks Event Garden is a truly unique concert experience that invites singers and songwriters to perform original pieces in a Texas listening room. With seating limited to 30-40, it feels like an intimate personal concert or jam session in a friend’s home. Tickets include complimentary drinks and catered food, which is a great deal for dinner and a show.
Laugh it Up
They say laughter is the most important part of a relationship, so get that side-splitting comedy in at Jazz and Jokes. Part standup lounge, part musical venue, Jazz and Jokes is another unique date night venue.
Go for a Night Cap
Swing life away at the Little Woodrow’s patio, which has outdoor fire pits, lawn games, and a sportier vibe. For the best live music in town, Madison’s on Dowlen and the Logon Café regularly have performers playing late into the evening.
Try Two Steppin’
When in Texas, right? Practice your boot-scootin’ boogie at Sawdust Saloon. Swing your partner round and round, and not to worry if you have two left feet, the line dances are fairly easy to pick up. If nothing else, it’s a good opportunity to laugh at each other.
Try a New Cuisine
Beaumont is a real melting pot, which means there’s no better place to tantalize your taste buds and embark on a culinary journey together. Try traditional sit-on-the-floor Thai at Chaba, or make it dinner and a show at Tokyo, which has sushi and cook at the table hibachi. If you’re adventurous eaters, try the unique fusion of Viet-cajun at Sweet Basil, which pairs pho and Southeast Asian flavors with local dishes like crawfish.
Have a Fanciful Dinner Out
If you’re looking for that stereotypical fine dining restaurant for a special occasion meal, Suga’s Deep South is a great date night option, which boasts upscale southern comfort food and weekly jazz performers. The Tree is another local favorite for sizzling steaks cooked over an open fire.
Toss One Back
For the beer enthusiasts, our four local microbreweries are a great place to find your new favorite pour. Start at Pour Brother’s, whose high-tech tap wall lets you pour your own samples priced by the ounce. When you’re feeling good, mosey on over to Struggle Street, which has creative, fruit-forward flights of flavors like Caramel Apple StruggleTart and Blueberry Muffin.
Play Some Pool
If you’re more into divey destinations, Fast Eddie’s is the quintessential pool hall. Get competitive over a game of darts, foosball, or giant beer pong, or make it an Olympics-style round-robin to determine who is the ultimate bar game champion.
Hit the Beach
Take a day trip up to Bolivar for some sun and surf. Go parasailing and take advantage of the area water sports, or simply relax with your toes in the sand.
