2. You just can’t go wrong with chocolate and wine
The Chocolate Museum & Cafe is Orlando’s sweetest attraction, so it’s no surprise that if you’re looking to treat your significant other to a truly sweet evening on I-Drive - this stop should be part of your next date night.
Step into a tropical rainforest, where your tour starts with a short presentation that will take you back in time to find out the origins of chocolate and its rich history. Then get ready to stand in awe as you view 25 solid chocolate sculptures of some of the world’s most recognizable landmarks, learn how chocolate is made, and see historical machinery that was once used to create your favorite treats!
Finally, take to the tasting room, where you will enjoy sampling some of the finest chocolates from around the globe. Opt for the wine tasting so you can mix and match your chocolate treats with various wines to find a pairing almost as perfect as you and your sweetie.
3. Kings Dining and Entertainment
What’s a better way to show some appreciation for the special relationship you and your significant other share than with going toe to toe on some of your favorite games?
Kings Dining and Entertainment is a great way to get some game time in with your date. Enjoy a round of bowling, or hit the billiard tables to show off your pool table skills. But, no date night is really complete without a delicious meal, and your dinner at King’s  won’t disappoint.
Their menu offers chef driven scratch food, with unique and delicious twists on American fare favorites, plus they have a lounge area, and a full bar that will keep the drinks flowing, and good times going all night long.

4. Ole Red Orlando
If your significant other loves country music, or live music entertainment from top talent; Blake Shelton’s Ole Red is sure to be a boot scootin’ good time!
Ole Red gets its name from Blake Shelton’s breakout hit, “Ol’ Red”, and being here is a lot like hanging out with the guy himself: laid-back and genuine, up for anything, a bit irreverent (but always fun)—and set to great music. No matter how you do Ole Red, you can expect an edge-of-your seat good time!
Enjoy live music playing every night, as you indulge in drool-worthy, southern inspired soul food, and sip on refreshing cocktails that will leave you licking your lips.
Since Ole Red Orlando is located in ICON Park, after your meal, head into Orlando’s favorite open-air, gate free entertainment complex! Hop aboard the famous Wheel, or enjoy a thrill at the World’s tallest swing ride, the Orlando Starflyer... wherever the night takes you, it is sure to be an iconic night that you and your special someone will remember for years to come.
5. Titanic: the Artifact Exhibition
The Titanic is a classic, and is one of the most notable love stories ever told… so of course the Titanic Artifact Exhibition had to make the list for places to enjoy an epic date night on I-Drive!
Explore full-scale recreations of the Titanic’s most famous locales, including her Grand Staircase, First Class Parlor Suite, Veranda Cafe and Promenade Deck. Listen and watch as historians in period costumes portray some of the famous Titanic notables, like Capt. Smith and Molly Brown, sharing stories of her passengers and crew during a guided journey that will shock and amaze you and your date. Then peruse a multi-room exhibit that even showcases an “iceberg” that you and your significant other can touch to experience the cold of that fateful night.
If you want to make sure that your next night out is an experience that you and your special someone can enjoy together, this stop must make it onto your next date night itinerary.
After you explore the Titanic like never before, hit I-Drive for dinner and drinks at one of the many dining spots along I-Drive that are serving up cuisine from across the globe. It won’t be hard to find a unique dinner spot that you and your date will enjoy trying together. April is National Relationship Appreciation month, so don’t put off date night any longer!
