Take a painting class at Pinot’s Palettevalentine's day date idea: wine and painting class via genpink.com

A fun bonding experience for couples (and with groups of friends) is taking painting classes together. Bring a bottle of wine if you’d like and enjoy a class to express your artistic side. Pinot’s Palette in Dallas offers a variety of classes for all levels, so no painting experience is needed. Take a look here at some of the romantic paint sessions they have coming up in February.

Visit the museums

Big cities are never short of museums. Plan an afternoon to visit one or more exhibits that are in town. If you’re feeling artsy or want to get your geek on at a science museum, this date will surely be eventful and educational. In Dallas, I never get tired of visiting the Dallas Museum of Art and the Perot. Another enjoyable place to stop by is the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison.
