Dates aren't limited to the evening hours. There's plenty of fun to be had during the day, too! Check out these ideas for daytime date adventures in Fort Wayne:

Jefferson Pointe - Spring

Date Ideas in Fort Wayne, Indiana

Ice cream!

Head over to Carousel on East State Blvd. for a scoop (or two). They also have a New Haven location, which is a town just east of Fort Wayne. 

Insider's Tip: They have a vegan flavor of the day that is simply divine.

There's also Cold Stone Creamery in Jefferson Pointe. Oh, and be sure to check out the West Central Microcreamery and Cafe. They are located in Sheridan Court Apartments and serve homemade ice cream, popsicles and coffee drinks.

Trek the Trails

Fort Wayne is home to more than 100 miles of trails waiting to be discovered. Walk, run or bike together for some quality time spent in nature.

Catch a matinee at the Cinema Center

Film lovers will feel at home at Cinema Center, an independent movie house located in downtown Fort Wayne. The schedule changes weekly, so check the site for the current listing.

Be a kid again at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo

The award-winning Fort Wayne Children's Zoo is fun for children and adults alike. Here you can see everything from lions to stingrays. I recommend the Sky Safari Ride, which provides a one-of-a-kind view of the zoo campus. Admission is $15 for adults. Hours are 9 to 7 p.m. from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Have a Picnic

Both Foster Park and Lakeside Park are ideal places to take in a quiet lunch. If you're lucky, you can secure a picnic table. Bring your camera to take photos of the beautiful flowers. 

Here's to planning a fun-filled day with your sweetie!
