Dancing, With a Kick

date idea

Do you enjoy a good dance, but want to up the ante? Give this capoeira class a spin (and twist, and flip, and kick, and… you get it).

Mixing dance, athletics and martial arts together, this class will surely give you and your date a workout to remember, whilst getting you two prepared for defending yourself if you ever have a night out that gets too wild.

Kick Back and Cruise with Bae

date idea

A boat ride is always a great idea. It’s even better when the boat ride is taking you on a coastline tour of the beautiful city of Miami. Feel the wind in your hair, sea spray in your face and your arm around your lovely date as you take in the breathtaking views together on this cruise tour of the city.

All You Need Is Love

date idea

The concert is a classic date idea. This concert, however, has a decidedly Miami twist to it: a Cuban-inspired family musical trio with some of the best vocal harmonies Miami has to offer. Drink, sing and dance the night away with your date as the two of you get musically blown away by this incredible group.
