{Date Night Fridays} Go Kart World

California, Date Night Fridays, Dates, Dating, Fun, Southern California

The hubby and I have never really stuck to the conventional movie and a dinner type of dates. We like to have fun and we are kids at heart so going on a date to Go Kart World just made sense.


This place has a lot of kids during the day but at night you see a lot more young adults and couples. It might not seem very romantic to go to a go kart place but trust me if you can laugh together and act silly it really puts you in a great mood. We have enjoyed this place with my little cousins and on our own. It seriously is a fun place to spend the evening at. It can be a tad pricey if you want to ride the tracks a lot but you can have fun doing a few spins yourself and people watch the rest of the time. I had a blast getting to know the hubby here and can’t wait to bring our kids here one day. I hope you guys give this place a try and have as much fun as we have. Here is the Yelp review.

Note: This is not the only go kart place in Southern California if you live closer to Gardena you might want to check out K1 Speed.

Do you know of any other cool place to go act like a kid?

{Date Night Fridays} I’m still dating my husband

California, Date Night Fridays, Dates, Life, Romance, Southern California

…and loving every minute of it.  Just because you get married doesn’t mean you should stop going on dates.  When the hubby and I were dating our date night was usually on Friday night and it was involved doing something different that we hadn’t done before.  Fast forward to almost 11 years later and we are still committed to going on dates.  On this segment called Date Night Fridays I’m going to give you suggestions on where to go on dates in Southern California.  I’m aware I’ll probably hate myself later if you all start showing up to my favorite spots but I’m willing to take that risk.  Southern California is full of museums, botanical gardens, comedy clubs, and other places that could be quite romantical.  Please keep in mind that many places the hubby and I go to are very affordable which is a bonus for us. We actually try to outdo ourselves with planning the “cheapest” date.

One of our favorite FREE museums to visit is the California Science Center.
When I was little my parents used to take me there and I later found out that my hubby’s parents used to do the same thing.  (I wonder if we were ever there at the same time.)  The museum is pretty big and there are a lot of things to do.  They have a small aquarium where you can touch some of the star fish at.  Sometimes they have very cool exhibits but they are usually cost extra. We love going in there and playing with all the things and sometime catching a film in their huge IMAX theater.  Parking is usually about $10 bucks but if you’re feeling a tad adventurous or if you’re trying to go green you might want to take the Metro.  This place is totally kid friendly but it can also be enjoyed with just your significant other.  We’ve taken our little goddaughter with us on several occasions and she has a blast.  
If you want to romance your special loved one pack a picnic basket and enjoy it in the adjacent Rose Garden. (Keep in mind that it’s closed from January 1st to March 15th.)

Dating: What happens to it after marriage?

Let me begin by saying that the hubby and I have been going out since 2001 and have been married since last year and we still enjoying going out on dates.  He stole my heart when he first asked me out because he gave me three choices which didn’t include dinner and a movie.  At that time I was tired of the typical date and was glad that along came a young guy who was more imaginative.  As a matter of fact it wasn’t until the past couple of years that our dates include dinner and a movie.   
Our dates have ranged from going to museums to concerts to comedy clubs and plays the hubby always seems to surprise me.  One thing that changed last year as we were planning our wedding was our frugality in regards to dates.  We began to get really creative with our dates since we were trying to save up money for our wedding.  Since we live in Southern California we haven’t had a problem finding places where we can to without spending much money.  Once of our favorite places to go is the Getty if you have never gone there you should check it out.  
Now that we are married and our week seems to fly by we have found that it’s just as important that we find time to go out on dates.  The best part of the dates are that we get to reconnect and re-energize with each other after a long week of work and school.  We are often asked by my younger cousins what are our secrets for being so in love after almost 9 years of dating and we tell them that they are are to whisper sweet nothings and wooing each other.
So do you and your significant other find time to go out on dates? Can you share with me where you like to go?
