Couple getting coffee, an easy seattle date night idea

Keep it real

When you’re a parent, the key to date night is to keep your expectations low, because — well, you know, kids. Advance planning is all very well, but from my experience, the minute you nab those sought-after concert tickets or score a reservation at the best restaurant in town, things start to unravel fast — the babysitter can’t make it, your baby gets sick, your kid's “most important soccer game ever” is on that evening. The list goes on. 

So, here's my advice: Forget reservations, don’t wear anything fancy, consider something cheap or free, and even try a sneaky date during the day to keep the love alive. Parents, we all know you’re busy, so here are some simple Seattle date night ideas that are as fun as they are spontaneous. 

Up first: Go for a paddle and a bite to eat
