Perfect For: Freshening up your old date ideas

Finding new date ideas are tough, and the fun, cool activities are usually pretty expensive. Scrap your upcoming date at the bowling alley, and opt for a helium balloon ride at Great Park. During the day, you will get an incredible 360-degree view of Orange County from 400 feet in the air, and at night, the balloon lights up for a romantic setting (maybe you can slip the balloon operator a little extra to ensure that you two get a private trip). Just make sure that your date isn't afraid of heights.
