Travel back to a more simple time, when going to a movie was a major Friday night activity and most certainly enough to land you a second date. We’re not talking about the ArcLight or AMC, or even some of the newer dine-in theaters that have popped up—we’re talking about drive-in theaters. There are a number of drive-in theaters in Southern California that have stayed true to the original concept, including relatively cheap ticket prices. And in the privacy of your own car, you can chat (or make out) as much or as little as you’d like without bugging the people next to you.
You’ve scoured Los Angeles, from Tinder and Bumble to the city’s best singles bars, and have finally found someone worth going out with. But now comes the even harder part: planning the first date. Sure, you could head to one of L.A.’s many romantic restaurants or plan a quick meet-up at a coffee shop, but if you want to really blow your crush out of the water, we recommend moving forward with one of these best first date ideas in L.A. Good luck!
