Are you and your partner traveling to Minneapolis, Minnesota and want to get in some romance on your trip?  Maybe you are taking a specific romantic Minneapolis vacation.  Perhaps you live in the Twin Cities area and are looking for a fun date night.

No matter the reason, you are probably looking for some fun date night ideas.  And luckily, we have them!

1. Twilight Whispers: A Romantic Stroll Through Minneapolis

A tour of Minneapolis can be a great idea if you are visiting the city for the first time.  Or even if you’ve lived in Minneapolis but you want to gain more appreciation for your city.  So how about going on a tour that is specifically made to be romantic?

Twilight Whispers is a great romantic tour of Minneapolis.  You’ll be able to enjoy Minneapolis while the sun sets, which I think is quite romantic.  The tour even ends at the Stone Arch Bridge.  You’ll get to walk on the bridge under the starlit sky while admiring the city’s lights reflecting on the Mississippi River.  Can’t get much more of a romantic backdrop than that, don’t you?

You can check availability for the tour here.

2. Mall of America

Mall of America in nearby Bloomington can be a great location for a date night.  They have a lot of activities that would work really well as a romantic date.  There’s mini golf like Rock of Ages Blacklight Mini Golf and Moose Mountain Adventure Golf.  They have an escape room which can make for an exciting date.  Walking hand in hand while admiring sea life at SEA LIFE Aquarium can be very romantic.  There are lots of great restaurants at Mall of America.  The Mall of America even has an indoor Ferris Wheel which can be very romantic (though we will admit, the Dora & Boots theming does take a little away from a sexy mood you might be wanting to create).  But suffice to say, headed to Mall of America for a date night is a great idea.

3. Candlelight Ghost Trolley Tour in Minneapolis

Looking for a date night that’s a little spooky, too?  Then how about trying a Candlelight Ghost Trolley Tour in Minneapolis?  This may not be the candlelight date night you envisioned, but it could be the candlelight date night you need!
