Bowling was our first date together as teenagers. One of the best high school date ideas.
We had a great time and we're still together so I recommend this as a great date idea!

It has a very Grease vibe and I really like that.
When we were a teenage couple, we went to a lot of drive-ins in Mike's first car, the Datson 120 Y. It was a lot of fun and we brought candy.
In the meantime, if you don't already have your license, movies are a great alternative.
Pick a romantic comedy movie! One of the best places for a high school date.
6. Go to a pet cafe
One of the funniest date ideas for teens!
Pet cafes are the new thing in YOU and are so much more fun than a regular cafe, especially if you don't have a dog or cat to play with.
Cat or dog cafes can be found in virtually every city these days.
If you get the chance, try to visit a cafe with more exotic animals. We visited one onceMeerkat Cafe in Seouland it was beyond amazing!
I mean, seriously, how cute is he?!
Aww - how cute is that face?!
7. Go to a trendy cafe
If you are not very fond of animals, we recommend meeting in a normal cafeteria. One of the funniest date ideas for teens.
Choose the latest hip and trendy cafe in your neighborhood for an unforgettable date.
In the worst case scenario, you have a date at Starbucks and you each order a special drink of the month. The Pumpkin Spice Frappuccinos are our favorite!
8. Go second-hand shopping
I remember when I was a teenager I didn't have a lot of money for expensive and lavish dates.
Going to a thrift store and picking out cheap clothes for everyone to wear was one of our favorite things to do as teenagers.
It is highly recommended to choose each other's clothes for the day. It's a super silly idea that is sure to make your date laugh!

To increase the amount of LOL, try dancing machines or racing cars. A great idea for a dance date!

10. FILM MARATHON!
I don't know why, but I was really into it when I was a teenager. Okay, who am I kidding, it still bothers me.
What's better than 1 movie? 2 movies, 10 movies or 20 movies. Okay, maybe not that many, but you get the point.
There are plenty of movies that are great for binge-watching, like Lord of the Rings or my favorite as a teen couple, American Pie.
11. Go swimming
Swimming is always a super fun idea for teens.
if there is asummer date, have a day at the beach or if you are in Florida have a good daymanantial natural!
In winter it is even possible to swim in an indoor pool.
Indoor pools can be surprisingly interesting with many pools of different water temperatures to try.
12. Do your nails
One of the best things to do with your teenage love.
Or prove how much your boyfriend likes you by suggesting that you do your nails together, hehe.
This is a cheap date idea and if he actually agrees to give you a manicure/pedi then you really know he's a keeper.
13Hop on a sushi train
As a young couple, going out to restaurants can be expensive.
We used to visit the local sushi train for a really cheap and fun teen date.
A sushi train is not only a cheap date but also a very fun experience due to the theatrics of the train.
This is a sushi train we have visited in Japan where you order from the screens and it is delivered to you.
Eating sushi is a fun and delicious date to do together!
14Meet at a local mall
When we were teenagers, we would often meet at the local mall to do some shopping.
Even if you don't want to spend a lot of money, a date at the local mall is fun because of the cheap food and lots of people watching.
We like to sit in the mall and eat fast food while taking turns guessing the dark mysteries of random people's lives.
Are you looking for something different?
Why not try a contest where you can only spend a certain amount, maybe $10 or $20?
And you should try to choose the best gift for your partner.
15.go to a photo booth
If you're looking for cute date ideas, don't miss out on a photo booth date. This idea can be combined with the date of purchase.
It's always so much fun to go to a photo booth and take some super stupid pictures together.
Usually, there are photo booths in all malls.
We once visited a cool oneJapanwhere you can change the look of your face: love hearts, red lips, rosy cheeks, you name it, they've got it!
16th Kart Race!
There's nothing like go-kart racing for a teen date.
Kart racing really gets the competitive juices flowing.
Few people don't like go-karts, so your date will surely approve of this one!
17. Retire o Playstation o Wii
Nothing better than taking the Playstation or the Wii for a competitive duel.
Every once in a while we take the Wii out to try out Wii Sports, so it's fun to have a little friendly competition.

Maybe meeting up at a mutual friend's house for a pool party would be a fun idea!
20. Go to the aquarium
No matter how old you are, a date at the aquarium is always a good idea. One of the best first date ideas for teens!
There is something magical about watching the colorful fish, sharks and jellyfish go by.
Since aquarium tickets are usually quite affordable, this is the perfect teen date idea!
Visiting the aquarium is so much fun!
21Go for afternoon tea
I'm not sure if this is a good or bad teen date idea, but I thought I'd add it for nostalgia.
When I was 16, I took a guy out for chocolate tea for HIS birthday. He said it was more of a pleasure for me. Haha you may be right.
Tea, jam, scones, mini sandwiches - I thought everyone loved the idea?! Is this a good date idea for teens? Up to you.

A walk is one of the cutest ideas for teenage couples, in my opinion.
If you're both the adventurous type, take a hike somewhere new.
Walking is also great for taking beautiful photos, so you can take some cute photos for Instagram!
Also, you can usually find a great hike completely free! Alive!
30. Go to a haunted house
If your date is in the fall (our favorite time of year), a haunted house is a really cute date idea.
I mean, it can be fun when seizures scare you!
31. Go on an ice date
When we were teenagers, we used to go out for ice cream a lot!
They were super fun and approachable.
Frozen dates are a hit with even the pickiest of dates - who doesn't love ice cream?
32. Go horseback riding
Horseback riding is definitely one of the most memorable dates we can remember as a couple.
A horseback ride through the woods or on the beach is one of the most romantic date ideas.
As a teen date idea, it can be a bit pricey, so you may need to save up for it!
33. Go fishing
Fishing is definitely a fun and inexpensive idea for teens.
If you're in the country, fishing and hunting are probably something you're already pretty good at.
Take a boat or stay on the beach and practice your fishing skills together.
34. Visit a water park
One of the first dates we went on when we were 17 years old was at a water park.
It was a lot of fun going down all the slides together. When it's summer, this is the ideal date idea for teens, as it's upbeat and super fun.
After you are exhausted from slipping, have a barbecue in the shade of a tree.
Remember to use sunscreen and not burn yourself like I did.
35. Balloon Fight or Food!
No matter your age, nothing is more fun than a balloon or food fight! A good date idea for teens.
A balloon or food fight is even more fun with friends, so invite a few more friends to join the party and let the fun begin!

If you prefer a little more tame, you can go for a water gun fight.
A squirt gun fight is the perfect teen date idea as it's super fun, lighthearted and doesn't cost a fortune!

Do you two have dogs? Gather at the dog park and play Frisbee or go fetching with your furry friends.
The way he treats the dog can tell if you like him more or less.

There are karaoke games that you can connect to your Wii or Playstation.
If you both like to sing, you can sing as a duet or individually.
Be careful as karaoke can lead to some serious competition!
39. Municipal and State Fairs
Visit the state or county fair! One of the best first date ideas for high school students.
A summer treat like no other, a state or county fair can be so much fun and affordable.
Win prizes, eat cotton candy or hot dogs and enjoy the attractions together! (Just make sure the chili dog calms down before going on the crazy rides.)
If it's not the year of the fair, see if there's an amusement park nearby that you can visit.
Frisbee golf is a perfect teen date idea as it is a fun and very inexpensive way to date.
Play a few rounds of Frisbee golf, then cool off by picking up an ice cream cone from the local ice cream truck.
41. Visit a museum
A museum? Tedious! But some museums can be fun and free.
Find out if there are any interesting museums in your area and plan your meeting from there!
42. Library study status
Chances are you're both studying, so why not set up a relaxed study date at the library?
They may mistake studying for small talk and giggling.

43. Pipe Empire
This is a really cute and inexpensive date idea for teens.
It's a real sport! It takes skill to keep this thing in the air.
Reward yourself with ice cream or something tasty after the strenuous kite flying!
44. Visit the zoo or safari
Personally, I still love going to the zoo. Zoos have something that never goes out of style.
Look at cute animals, feed them, buy ice cream or slushies to refresh yourself.
What's even more fun than a zoo is a drive-in safari. Once you get your driver's license, check to see if there are any zoos in your area.
Seeing monkeys jumping on your car is always great! Don't bring mom or dad's new car or you'll have to explain something if there's any damage!
