BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

WEST METRO – For this week’s installment of Best Spots, we’re compiling a list of Inexpensive Date Spots for you to take your special someone.

In today’s economy, it’s important to find companionship which, in our opinion, is the cheapest form of entertainment. However, it’s the springtime, and people like to get out every now and then. So, check out these suggestions for fun under $15.

Take your date on a trip to Sweetwater Creek State Park. On April 30, the park will hold a Twilight Canoe trip. This sunset ride is ranger-led and only open to adults who can swim and have some canoeing experience. $15 includes the canoe, paddle and PFD. The trip will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will return to shore around 9:00 p.m.
