3. Ignite the spark at the Marbles Kids Museum

Okay, one more Muesuem is on this date list! Raleigh has some great museums and while I am a huge art lover, science museums give you hands-on time with your date and you kind of get to feel like a kid again and explore the sciences. The Marbles Kids Museum is very popular with kids, but I love this place! It has workshops, where the kids teach you how things work. It has a place where you can build your own model car and then race each other. This date will surely amp up your curiosity and it also has an IMAX theatre, which is a total plus!Marbles

4. Run free at Pullen Park

One of the better raleigh date ideas is to check out the array of lakes and parks and take advantage of the great outdoors!

There is a little pond where you can rent water bikes and other activities, which can definitely add a little romance.
